2/10 Poor

Horrible - Won’t stay again
The room was extremely dated, the pictures online made it look much more modern. No aircon and the fan was noisy. Couldn’t have the windows open because of the traffic noise and sirens at all hours of the night. Bathroom had stains and a thick layer of dust near the toilet. Plug for bath had thick pink rim around it. Carpet in the hall was bubbling up. Found hairs and a bug in our bed. There was not much space and the coat rack stuck out so far I hit my head on it trying to get past the corner of the bed. One side of the bed had no power points so made charging phones annoying. My friend found a hair in her mushrooms from the breakfast buffet. We also told reception as we were checking out (had to stay as no other options due to Ed Sheeran concert in town and Waitangi weekend) and they didn’t seem worried, have a half hearted sorry and a “I’ll let the manager know”. I’d hazard a guess they didn’t pass on our feedback. Also not suitable if you have assessibility needs - steps up to reception from both directions and couldn’t see anywhere someone in a wheel chair could enter. 10/10 DO NOT RECOMMEND.

8/10 Very good

Great location
We were in room 404 overlooking the city which was great as we watched the fireworks from our room on New Year's Eve. The room was a little small in comparison but comfortable. Full buffet breakfast was included in our rate which was fantastic. It's a short walk to Cuba Street and about a 20 minute walk to cablecar. No air conditioning so slept with window open and fan on. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Parking spots are very small so if you have a big car, it could be a bit difficult especially if you parking down the back.

No hot water until late first night, then only hot water coming out of bThroom taps. Parking area very cramped

2/10 Poor

The property is the single worst hotel room I have ever stayed in. The condition inside and out is disgusting. The foyer area was raining on the inside and the wallpaper was coming off the walls in my room. I see a sign on the door as I leave saying the building is earthquake prone and has to be repaired by 2027. Just pull it down and start again.

Decidedly Average
WIFI was terrible. Could barely get a signal from my room which made working impossible. The Hotel was very tired and dated. Bed was springy and average. Noisy location as well. Breakfast was probably the highlight
