Patrick O. Couples - Confirmed reviews ALL

We found the staff to be so friendly and helpful which was a nice way to start our holiday. Our flight had been changed to 6am and so we arrived far too early for our booking and when we requested if we could leave our bags in storage the young lady in reception changed our room booking and gave us a room that was ready which was really appreciated. The room size is great and the bed just so comfortable. The breakfasts were simply awesome and staff there were really lovely.The cleaners do an awesome job which is so nice. The only gripe we had was the shower which was very intermittent.Sometimes we had to run water for ages to get the water warm and other times it was really piping hot. The shower defaults to the rain head which is a pain until you get it sorted . Overall a lovely place to stay and would definitely be happy to stay again. We would have given a 10 if not for the shower.

Checkin went smoothly, while I was in my room someone opened the door and then apologised but I am not sure what that was for. Breakfast the next morning was good, and checkout was relatively smooth. Served it’s purpose for the stay.

mdoyer Business - TripAdvisor review

Have stayed several times previously and always found this accommodation perfectly satisfactory. On this occasion, I found that the room looked tired, and the air conditioning was so noisy that I had to turn it off. One particular staff member was very offhand and there were a number of disgruntled people in the lobby whose room keys did not work.

Good stay nice room

Good stay for business. Food good in restaurant but service not up to par. Charged extra on bill - lucky I checked. Comment from the cashier was I had a couple of extra glasses of wine who I wasn’t sure who they should be charged to so I charged your table!!!

Well located centrally, familiar - with high standard of service, comfortable accommodation.

Some unhappy Staff doing room service

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Kate S. Business - Confirmed reviews ALL

1. Room Service staff member very quickly commented he was very busy when I asked him how his evening was. I wondered if it was due to Covid but he said no, the boss gets to leave when he wants. But I guess he starts early in the morning. Perhaps something to share with Management as that is not a good look moaning about a personal issue with the manager. 2. The shower was tricky to get the right temperature.

Very handy

Stayed for 4 nights. This time with no vehicle. Thus hotel is so centrally located we didn’t need wheels. Everything so close including restaurants. Tram stops pretty much outside. The rooms was super clean and restaurant offered a good selection. Breakfast was superb.Thank you so much we will be back!

Hello MacNZ2014 Thank you so much for the kind words. The most credible form of advertising comes straight from the people we know and trust so a recommendation to your friends and family is a great compliment. Thank you
