They sold my pre-paid room!

I booked and prepaid for 2 nights. I arrived to check in at 7am to find that they had resold my room because I failed to check in at 3pm the day before and was told they were fully booked. After being awake for 24 hours from an overseas flight I was not one bit happy as they'd taken my money and double dipped by reselling the room. I made a fuss and they managed to find a twin room we could sleep in for a few hours before our booked room was ready. No apology was made, no compliments offered. The desk staff were bordering on rude, but the young man who moved our bags from one room to the next was a delight. The hotel is in a good, convenient location with an easy walk to SkyCity. The amenities are reasonably good, but the beds are uncomfortable and not what I'd expect from 4.5 stars. The only thing I recommend about this hotel is the Japanese restaurant within it, which was truly excellent. To hotel management: If you want to have a policy where checkin is at 3pm only, and not from 3pm (some places stipulate check in is 3pm to 9pm for example), you need to advertise that, otherwise it is absolutely unacceptable to resell a room.

Disappointed with your sky channel choice

Good locality, very disappointed with sky channel choice . The night was a present for my husbands birthday who is an avid tennis fan. Could not even watch this on our return from dinner. Unbelievable for a 4.5 star hotel. Unfortunately our room looked on to a dirty car park for $300 dollars I don't think that's good. We are definitely not hard to please people but we were disappointed . Regards Michelle.

Good location near the city

Nice hotel close to city but very tired decor. Our swipe card did not seem to work in certain elevators and on our hotel room door - even after changing it twice - which was a little annoying. Breakfast buffet very disappointing. I would recommend walking to Bestie Cafe up on KRd or somewhere in town instead to get good food.

Last Minure business

My wife booked Monday arrival to Thursday depart. Was lucky enough to get this room due to heavy bookings normally stay at the Ridges or Quay West Would gladly stay here again specially due to the VIP promotion and resonable valet parking rate. Air in the room was a bit dry complimentary water would be a good idea to help with hydration Well done

4 days businness trips

Pros: See above
Cons: Put a soap dish in the bathroom, please.
Location: The hotel is in the CBDor if not not it is very close. The hotel is close to many stores, shops & restaurants

The pool is well keep and there is spacious sun deck so I on my arrival day I was able to soak some sun The fitness room is well keep and the equipement is in good working order The staff is very friendly and efficient Good ratio price/value If, I come back to Auckland this Grand Millennium will be first pick

Great Layover Spot with Realistic Parking charges

Pros: Lovely bathrooms.
Location: Close to Ponsonby and waterfront (10 minute walk).
Quiet, comfortable beds, right in central city with realistic parking charges relative to other hotels. This hotel has always maintained a good standard and has not dated.

Nice hotel

Pros: The beds were very comfortable and the friendly service was great.
Cons: TV channels, and maybe more of an incentive to come i.e. complimentary items in the hotel as we arrive. Spa would have been nice addition.
Location: Great location, close to the inner city and to restaurants. It was good not to have to drive anywhere.
The experience accommodated what our stay was all about, so overall it we had a lovely time.
