Have stayed at this Hotel every Auckland Anniversary Weekend with a large group (6-10 units) for the past seven years. The units are clean and well located. The price is a little high but it is a busy weekend so you have expect to pay a premium. Where this place lets its self down is the way they handle bookings. In sorts its appalling, every year its a battle to know whats going on. Last year was a major battle just to get them to confirm our units, this year they apologized for last years muck up and took all of our groups e-mails with commitment to sort our bookings for next year this week. Yesterday we all received an email telling us to go else where as they have been booked out for a International Sporting Event... These things happen but they would have been fully…
We liked the location and the room; a little pricey for what you get (at least by NA standards but as we found out - it seems most NZ hotels don’t offer rooms with 2 queen beds - more likely singles). Close to several restaurants and the waterfront.
Our room was clean and well appointed on the ground floor with a view over the lake. It was quiet at night so had a good nights sleep. If we stay here again I would try to book a room on the first floor.
Lovely hotel, great location and staff, we decided to stay another night and were able to get the last room in the garden view. So we had to room move but by 8am the reception team had our room ready. Would recommend to anyone, only annoying thing is no cook top.
Really nice motel style place with friendly helpful staff. We decided to stay an extra night so that we could bike to the haka falls (well worth it). The lady on reception told us to take our swimmers as there were hot pools en route. We were not disappointed.
