    Nice quiet , clean room.

    paying $13-00 parking for no security , not coverd, didnt no we had to pay.

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    We were able to dine at the restaurant with family and not have to look for somewhere to take us - we met with family and with 13 family members, the restaurant suited our needs.

    The room wasn't ready on our arrival and had to wait until well after 2pm to be allowed to go up. This room was booked for elderly parents travelling from rotorua and, after a long drive, they then had to wait...

  • Older travelers

  • Single

    Nothing in particular that stood out. Good location though. Excellent evening meal.

    Room was dirty, pillows smelled. Check out staff member was very unhelpful and off hand when I queried my account.

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    The location was great. Rooms service excellent. Close proximity to the casino was also good. Valet parking very prompt.

    The extremely excessive costs for phone calls to Auckland and Australia. I have family that live here and phone often. We worked out that your hotel charges approximately 800% more than the cost of calls.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    The location, the value for money it represented to us as a family, the service and the facilities.
