Freindly staff, good location
Location, Staff, Food
It's a nice stay. It could be noisy during weekends but it is normal since it is weekend. The staff are super freindly and the location is convenient. The pub downstairs provides good food and drink.

Definitely will recommend
Staffs, value for money (rooms and dining), location
We are with young kid, and staffs here are nice and very helpful. Just love the restaurant on the 2nd floor and the room size are quite large compared to the rate.

quick Auckland stop
Excellent location, friendly helpful staff in a nice old building. cheap and convenient quick stop.
Generally all good. Was clean, had a good shower. Old building so had no aircon, and the window needed a new latch. But for the money most excellent, would stay again.

handy location
nice manager good bed
I wasdissappointed, virtually no 24 hr service, 6 flights of stairs to get heavy case down early am, manager carried it up. Had to ring by mobile to get attention from staff to arrange case collection for next day. They didnt answer the in house phone, no reception on arrival, went to BAR and manager appeared. They said no to case collection,had to go down that night. So had to repack my case. There was just NO service. No security bars on window whic h was the only air ventilation for this tiny pokey stuffy little room that you could hardly move in. You hit your head on the ceiling as well. Shower had a dirty wet face washer in it, yuck. I am angry, and finally got to bed at midnight for 5am departure. I have had better budget rooms. I am disgusted. No ower point in bathroom.

Good for a night or 2
Location,bar is good
Stay was fine. It fit our family even though the hotel is older. Bathroom is super small. No elevator which is a pain w luggage. Staff was fine.
