Overall disappointing

1.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 16 Feb 2020
No onsite parking; was told we could park in the magician's carpark once he left, asked when that would be, she had no idea... not helpful, ended up parking on road. A lot of miscommunication on where we were first told we could park.
Went to our room and the toilet didn't flush after using it. Room was very nice.
Was told we can't move as fully booked so basically we were left standing in reception.No customer service skills there. Cant stay in a room with no flushing toilet! Went to order food upstairs at pub. Was told a long wait cause there were five dockets in front of us but couldn't say how long wait. Was not that busy.
Went back downstairs to reception to be told noone answering her calls. She showed us a text she sent. Mentioned health and safety and suddenly she had a room that we could change to as the people hadn't turned up. It was a family room which definitely was a downgrade. Not sure how five people could fit in that unit, especially the bathroom, it needs an upgrade. It was very high for my 72 year old mother to step over the edge of the bath to have a shower. The beds were low and soft.
Also went back up to the pub to be told it could be 40 minutes wait for a pizza bread; was only 10 minutes but the worst pizza bread ever.
Thank God we were only there one night.
Disappointed to say the least.

As this is the first time staying in Auckland i have nothing to compare too.
I liked the location where we could take a stroll round the block and there were a few convenient shops close by. It had everything we needed but 1 night would be enough as i felt quite closed in.
I felt the rooms could have been cleaned better as there were stray hairs on the bed cover and the shower was not as clean ad I'd like.
Tv remote had no batteries and couldnt find buttons on tv so tv was stuck on same channel and same volume which can be hard with a toddler.
Check in staff extremely friendly and helpful and allowed us an early check in which was much appreciated.
Although this would bot be my first choice to stay at again it certainly wouldnt be ruled out as a no either.

Ooh dear !!. Lovely friendly staff, but facilities very tired and in poor condition. I was moved to an "upgraded " room , but still very tired and poor standard. Great area of Ackland to stay , could be a great asset .

I stayed at the Surrey last evening and through a chain of events my stay didn't go quite as planned.
HOWEVER the charming and efficient lady on the reception desk was help courteous and kind and saved my stay from being a disaster.
On the plus side the beds are SUPER comfie and the cat is charming.

Hotel is a bit old. Beds were comfy. Breakfast was typical... Scrambled eggs beans hash browns and cornflakes etc. Coffee was instant....
Nowhere to park at night as it was full.
Receptionist gave me a 500mb thing for two... Went back and got a 5 gb one.
Nice place but pretty basic.

Thanks for your feed back. On the rare occasion that the car park is full we can usually find a space that your car can be parked safely. We do have an espresso coffee machine which is available as a preference.
