Moderate walk to CBD. Reasonably pricey. Overall excellent facility though. A pool or spa would be nice.

Kia Ora, We are sorry to hear that your expectations were not met during your recent stay and I am surprised that you found the team unfriendly on this occasion as we receive several positive reviews on their accommodating nature. All our rooms and apartments have minibars along with a price list of each item for the convenience of all guests. Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me direct at the hotel. Kind regards, Roman
