    Not much, staff were amenable under circumstances out of their control.

    The air conditioning was broken, it was terrible, unlivable.

    It was a very nice stay. Very comfortable and the staff were really great and really friendly. It was awesome!! The stay itself was really awesome. Like I said, it was just a comfortable place to be. Would definitely come back.

    The photos on the website of the room we were supposed to stay were way off. Our view was of the parking shed next door. The tv was scratchy and jumpy. Possibly bad reception. The room could have been better arranged. But that stuff is minor. It was a good stay.

    Paper thin walls and could hear next door's conversation.

    Loved the receptionist a young looking girl very helpful and happy. Loved the size of the room and bathroom. Loved the location.

    I'm not sure if the toilet was suppose to do that but when it flushed the water did not go back down.

    Dreadful breakfast Overly hot room (air con seemed to heat not cool)

  • Single

    Parking available, location. The woman on the front counter was lovely and very welcoming.

    Noisy! I was woken up several times during the night (on a Wednesday night!) from all the noise outside and had a terrible night's sleep as a result. Not ideal as I had an early start with a client, then had to drive back to Auckland at the end of the day. The hotel also smells really stale, and the room was very old and felt unclean.

    We enjoyed the first visit to the city and our visit to the Hobbits site. The town is a pleasant place to stay, clean and friendly with excellent amenities

    Nothing in particular, we had a pleasant stay
