    Great location - bus stop just outside, easy walk to the water front and concert venue

    We ordered pizza by room service - the quality was terrible. We advised the receptionist when checking out so we were not charged for this - thank goodness

    Superb

    Its location is ideal all of Aucklands attractions are within easy walking distance. A shuttle bus runs to the airport every 15mins from a stop directly outside. The rooms are excellent, ours also had a kitchen area and washing machine. I can recommend the room service breakfast a choice of full cooked or continental. The bar also has a happy hour on wine around 5pm.

    On our second stay there was an air conditioning issue which was not resolved

    Fabulous

    Room well equipped and staff in the main very friendly and helpful. Room and bedding/towels clean and facilities offered very good for both self catering and hotel hospitality. Excellent position for easy access to town and amenities.

    Unfortunately the bed was not very comfortable as it sagged in the middle meaning roll together at night. One bottle of water charged even though most places offer the first bottle free.

    Fabulous

    Staff were fantastic, our room on the 10th floor had a full kitchen and living area with separate bedroom which was lovely, spacious and clean. Despite being right in the thick of things on queen street there were no noise issues at night

    Very good

    thought the location was absolutely perfect, so close to everthing. the room was very nice and bed and pillows were very comfortable and we slept well which is unusual for us. the heating/air conditioning was very quiet. we would definitely stay there again. we were in room 1702 and it was great up there. they did have lots of herbal teas and hot chocolate which I love - have not had that in many hotels and we have travelled a lot. shower was great. all in all a great time was had by all!!

    was not impressed with the towels which were thin and hard. they would have needed to be sent to the laundry every day. false economy. if they have big fluffy towels then they could be used for the entire time one is at the hotel (max four days). (perhaps they think people will steal them!!)

    Attentive staff ready to assist whenever approached. Very good for central location and access to Auckland cbd.

    Superb

    The service from the time of dropping off the car to when we had the car delivered to the door for us was second to none. We were in Auckland for a show so the location of the Hotel was excellent. Would not hesitate to stay there again.

    Some new towels would be good as the ones in the room were rather thin. A few different wine glasses would be a good idea.

    The bed and cushions are extremely comfortable The location is excellent

    The towels could be slightly fluffier The internet access needs to be sorted out. Very expensive and does not work as stated when you sign up.
