    Fabulous

    Very central, staff very helpful

    Hotel corridors are a bit shabby and smelled of horrible air freshener. Should have more channels available on sky. Fitness centre too small and insufficiently ventilated so smelled musty.Some of the brochures in the room were dog eared and a little tatty

    The room was beautiful and the bed very comfortable

    Breakfast was disappointing.No plates, had to look for help, bacon tough, scrambled eggs runny and no has browns left.Mini Bar did not have correct prices on sheet or was overcharged.

    Exclusive

    I was fortunate to receive an upgrade to a de lux, which was fresh, clean, super comfortable bed and choice of pillows. I also had room service meal, which was butter chicken and then fresh fruit salad, both of which were outstanding. I had previously stayed at this hotel a3/4 years ago, and was amazed at the upgrade freshness and interest in the rooms.

    in room 358 two articles had been moved on the white tiling around the bath/shower and brown marks were still on the white tiles. This was a shame as the rest of the bathroom was pristine.

    Very good

    Dined at the restaurant and the food was very nicely presented with good wait staff. Wife entree was cold which was a bit unfortunate. Efficient check in staff and the roomswere neat and tidy.

    Valet parking was a bit of a joke. it looked like the doorman was doing us a favour in getting our car. We probably waited 20 minutes for it at about 7 30 am and there was only one car requested before ours.

    The poupou that stood outside the entrance, I would have like to know more the history of this rangatira. I was told he was Ngati Mahanga. Funny that we have a farm in Rangitukia called Mahanga Station, could be a connection there.
