I liked it s location, the size of the room and its artistic presentation. My room was lacking a ward robe, but did not matter this visit.

The location is very good. A short stroll to Ponsonby Road at the eating end!! Having free parking is a huge bonus in Auckland. You can spend $30 to $40 dollars a night on top of your room rate at most inner city stays. The information booklet is very well put together. We found the eateries page very well set out. Having the walk times to various eateries is greta idea. The complimentary drink in the lounge and the honesty bar is a very welcoming feature. Staff were very friendly and accommodating.
