Teresa G. Couples New Zealand, July 25, 2015
Won't go back

The heating in the room, the room service lady we met, and kind of the location
5
It was quite disappointing unfortunately. The room was more run down than advertised, and there was no caution of the construction that the hotel was under when we stayed there. We were woken in the mornings by construction noises like banging and drilling directly below us. We were only staying for two nights but if we had stayed longer we would have requested another room or gone to another hotel.

Coffee bar was shut and the Whitby restaurant was very ordinary food with the man in charge giving the impression that he wasnt interested in the patrons.
