Loved the Sofitel! We were the Guests of the day”. We were upgraded and given a lovely dessert and free drink tickets. Better than that, our room was beautiful and very comfortable. Wonderful service! Friendly staff!

Hi melongyi, You must travel by taxi, airport bus or local bus from and to the airport. We caught Skybus Airport Express @ $9 NZ per person one way. You can get NZ Dollars from ATM - cheaper than Travelex.
