Kia ora Mary, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback, and for rating us a 4 out of 5. We're really pleased to read that you loved the food in Portlander, your room and our leisure facilities. I am sorry about any noise your heard, we are a big hotel and with late/early Cook Strait ferry sailings it can be busy through the night. It is nice however that overall you had a fabulous stay experience. Kindest regards Marcus

Kia ora Mischelle, Thank you for your rating and comments. I am sorry that there were no extra blankets in your room on the first night, I am pleased the team rectified this quickly when requested. The AC units have been causing a challenge recently, we are working through all rooms to service each unit. Kindest regards Marcus

Crockery in room was dirty, and room very dusty. Heating unit was so loud had to choose between being warm or being able to hear. Room service was cold and unappetising. Very disappointed - have stayed here before and given our current times the poor standard of cleanliness was a real issue for me. I mentioned all of the above at checkout but concerns were met with indifference.
