Nice location. Very quiet
Very quiet location. Traffic very bad in morning and evening getting into and out of Auckland. Very close to Devenport

View of the city from suburb
The place was easy to locate. Staff were helpful. First impression the place was clean but could tell the carpet needs some good cleaning (esp the 1st floor). We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment and could suggest to add more furnishings to the room - its a shame as we had a big area that lacked furnitures. The washer/dryer was of good facility in the room but the dryer part would be nicer if it was a separate one. Overall its a place i recommend for all travellers.

Wonderful room with awful free wine
This was a very nice hotel in a nice area overlooking Auckland harbour. Beautiful view from my room. The slightly unfriendly reception gave us a free wine voucher wich we used for dinner. They missed an excellent opportunity to upsell to a full bottle by serving wine which was open for too many days. When I mentioned it, the waiter apologised and gave me another open and off wine. Just bad business decisions. Free "anything" is an opportunity to sell, not get rid of old stock. Otherwise the food was fine, at 6/10. I would stay again. The room and location were so good.

Don’t use the wash machinebut do enjoy the view
The hotel is in a superb location and the view from the sunset lounge spectacular . Bed was comfy but we did washing and then Returning home to a wet wash at midnight . Could not work out the dryer so went on our next flight with s suitcase full of wet clothes . Instructions for appliances should be in the compendiums .
