              • Couple
                3.2

                Not much, staff were amenable under circumstances out of their control.

                The air conditioning was broken, it was terrible, unlivable.

              • Couple
                8.8

                It was a very nice stay. Very comfortable and the staff were really great and really friendly. It was awesome!! The stay itself was really awesome. Like I said, it was just a comfortable place to be. Would definitely come back.

                The photos on the website of the room we were supposed to stay were way off. Our view was of the parking shed next door. The tv was scratchy and jumpy. Possibly bad reception. The room could have been better arranged. But that stuff is minor. It was a good stay.

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                Paper thin walls and could hear next door's conversation.

              • Couple
                10.0

                Loved the receptionist a young looking girl very helpful and happy. Loved the size of the room and bathroom. Loved the location.

                I'm not sure if the toilet was suppose to do that but when it flushed the water did not go back down.

              • Older travelers
                6.6

                Location.

              • Older travelers
                8.0

                location to 21st

                no sound proofing, loud plumbing and terrible water pressure, would not stay again sorry

              • Older travelers
                7.4

                Location

                Old hotel and very poor car park.

              • Older travelers
                5.4

                quirky good access to cafes

                bathroom aged, basin cracked poor services overpriced

              • Older travelers
                10.0

                We got a free upgrade to an awesome room (115).

              • Single
                8.2

                I liked the old style to the hotel nice big rooms

                No A/c very hot made it hard to sleep ,and the tv was small

              • Single
                7.8

                Staff were very friendly and helpful.

                Air-con was not changeable or decreased so made room very warm, so hope all working better next time I visit.

              • Couple
                4.2

                Dreadful breakfast Overly hot room (air con seemed to heat not cool)

              • Single
                5.4

                Parking available, location. The woman on the front counter was lovely and very welcoming.

                Noisy! I was woken up several times during the night (on a Wednesday night!) from all the noise outside and had a terrible night's sleep as a result. Not ideal as I had an early start with a client, then had to drive back to Auckland at the end of the day. The hotel also smells really stale, and the room was very old and felt unclean.

              • Family with children
                9.2

                1)Location 2)Staff very professional 3)Lots of restaurants 4)Different Shops

                1) AC leaked water which was located right above the entry door 2) Curtains were torn 3) Rm phone worked & didn't work

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                We enjoyed the first visit to the city and our visit to the Hobbits site. The town is a pleasant place to stay, clean and friendly with excellent amenities

                Nothing in particular, we had a pleasant stay
