We have stayed twice before, so thought since we had a family function in Devonport we would stay here. Unfortunately it's abit rundown since last stay. Unfortunately the bar only opens at 5pm. Free voucher for drink was a lovely suprise, Unfortunately the beer taps weren't working and the house wine wasn't nice. We had to ask front desk to ask guests in 801 to turn thumping music down after 12 as our bedroom wall was vibrating. Then they talked loud all night. Unfortunately for us we got no sleep. And upon check out were told they are permanent guests. Unbelievable. Won't be back for sure

Upon arrival front desk made it near impossible for a smooth check in. My husband asked about parking and was told it would cost $30 for the one night to park his work van in their basement. When he said how ridiculous that cost was for one night, the lady threatened to phone the police on him for saying “f*** that’s a bit ridiculous for one night”. When he finally got to his room after parking his work van on the street, he walked in and there was a dirty toenail on the floor 🤢 so gross. The room was dated compared to other 5 star hotels we are used to and we wouldn’t be returning. Not welcoming and a dirty room are two things you don’t want when paying for a hotel that’s meant to be 5 star.

The room that I had was very comfortable and had a lovely view of Auckland city. It was clean and comfortable overall. The night that I stayed on wasn't too busy, so noise wasn't an issue. The only thing that I can comment on is staff were not very friendly. They were polite but the staff I encountered upon check in and check out, none of them even smiled at me. ( I am not seeking much validation here, but just think this is one of the basic paramount of good customer service) The staff personnel who took my reservation over the phone was professional and friendly enough. I am also in the service industry, so I can understand the pressures of the job. But it would make a world of difference if staff are a bit more welcoming to guests, no matter who they are. Hope future encounters with the hotel will see an improvement in this.

The room had a lovely view and it was spacious. The staff were polite and welcoming which is always nice. The location is great, close to everything. The furniture really needs an update as a lot of it was old and worn. We ordered room service for dinner and breakfast and it was really disappointing. The desserts were premade and not as described. They tasted like flour! We ordered 3. The burgers were tasteless and had no salad inside. We really wished that we had ordered Uber Eats! When I ordered breakfast, eggs benedict, it came with lettuce which was really strange! I wouldn't eat from the restaurant again. We did let reception know and they kindly took off some of the charge.

We have stayed here several times over the last couple of months. We've had several different rooms depending on price. All the rooms were very clean and tidy and spacious. Service was great especially at the front desk.
