                The central location and modern design of public areas and rooms was very pleasant. Handy airport shuttle pick-up was also a plus.

                * When I arrived, I was required to upgrade for an additional $20 per day for my whole stay in order to check in about 3 hours early on the first day. I had booked 6 weeks in advance and informed them I would be early. This may have seemed unfortunate, if it hadn't also happened to several of my colleagues attending the same seminar nearby ... * Continental (cold) breakfast cost a whopping $24.00 and a latte with it was an extra $4.50!

                The staff were very attentive and service was excellent

                My only complaint is the pillow top beds. Whilst they are extremely comfortable, I found myself far too hot in them as they retain their heat which made sleeping very uncomfortable.

                Handy to city and motorway. Room was a good size

                The open shower sprayed water all over the bathroom. No basic complimentary toiletries bar shampoo and cake soap. Bathroom floor were not cleaned during our stay. Booked smoking room only to find on arrival that hotel was non-smoking - website not up to date. Had to wait 20 minutes to check out due to only two staff on the desk.

                Only the location is good but the facility is poor. You won't be able to fit a kettle into a sink to fill up. Instead I need to use the shower head to fill up the kettle. Also, if you take a shower beware they will turn into a swimming pool . The structure in the shower is very strange , I manage to put all the towel behind the bathroom door and stop the water to flow into the room.

                City center, easy to find even if your not an Aucklander. (Sky Tower)

                Reception did not want to accept my Visa debit card. Very strange, and embarrassing, With a debit card you actually do have the money. Also.... I did expect the room to be more, as it was a superior King. To me it was just a standard room,

                The location is very good, a few blocks from Auckland Skytower and the Pier!

                The bathroom of our room was not comfortable, it had a shower and not a bathtub, and the floor flooded after each time we took a shower. It was really dirty, it had fungus on the ceiling and on the power cable of the hair-dryer. When I asked the lady from the front desk to clean it she did not believe me what I told her and they never cleaned it up.... disgusting!

              • Couple
                7.8

                The staff were great and very helpful - can't fault them at all.

                To be honest the view from the room, given the extra money spent on it for 'the view', just wasn't there. In hindsight I wouldn't bother again. The rooms were good, for sure........ But given that it was pretty obvious I was there for my wedding night, I would have thought the staff might have gone the extra mile to make sure my stay was in the best room available; not as if the hotel hadn't had prior warning of my stay and the reason for staying

                Perfect central location. Renovated rooms (floors 2-7) are nice.

                Pictures on the site are fake, you have a nice the harbour view but only in the OLD top floor rooms, the new rooms do have a mini harbour view in between the buildings in front. The site shows harbour view of the top floor in combination with new renovated room on the lower floors.

                STK Restaurant was convenient and the food was fantastic. Also the choice of a set menu at a very reasonable price. Travelling on my own it was easy to eat there and not have to look for a restaurant

                Pillows a bit too soft for me.

                The beds were wonderfully comfortable, very welcome after a long flight from the UK.

                I think the the hotel was niceley presented, it's proximatey to the CBD is good and the price was reasonable.

                I think the front counter staff to be friendlier and smile more. Gave the impression they couldn't be bothered.
