Close to conference venue
Staying to be close by the Te Pae conference centre, room clean and spacious, previously given complimentary water - none at this hotel, bar was nice to relax in for a drink, did not eat here though. Staff were friendly and virtuous, good location to city centre

10/10 Exceptional

Excellent receptionist, location, room size. Only downside were the chargeable NZ20 guest carpark - not the best condition to drag your luggages across pebbled ground especially on rainy day.
