Great location, town centre just around corner. Staff friendly and helpful. Window blinds bent and broken, but still worked, otherwise furnishings were fine. In middle of student area, but very quiet. Excellent value for money.

The apartment space was functional. The double beds were very small so not easy to sleep in if used to something bigger. The single bed was lumpy, you could feel the metal springs - so not good given the price. I would probably not stay here again because although the space was functional i.e the beds were clean, the sofas comfortable, there was nothing personal about the place, nothing loved. The bedrooms had no bedside tables, and no side lamps for example...just a bed in an empty room with cool blue-light utlitarian cieling lights. Not dissimilar to a cheap room in Bangkok, only for quite a lot more money!

quiet place and good location. Only annoying thing is there’s no private car park, needs to park off street, it’s not really safe. Otherwise it’s a good experience.

So close to the city centre. Only a 20 minute walk to the centre of NZ. Modern, clean, secure.
