Reception welcome was great with internationally experienced staff and although it was full vacancy, the atmosphere was vibrant and energetic. I appreciated the images of the historical details and the local aspects with interesting photos dotted throughout the function areas. The gardens were a nice surprise and we walked around enjoying the landscape. We found our experience to be effortless and after a hectic wedding and long drive from Auckland, we were really to hit the road the next morning well rested for the next part of our trip.

New Section Is Better”

Nice hotel, friendly staff, delicious food, highly recommend! Only do request the new wing as some of the rooms in the old section can be a little dark and even depressing.

Above average”

I feel the value for money was terrible not to be supplied water in a 500 dollars was poor Our experience in the restaurant was poor we ordered drinks it took 20 minutes our food was cold when it arrived we never got asked if we would like anything else and never got asked if we would like another drink very disappointed The iron in our room leaked all over our clothes when asked at front desk if we could have it replaced the staff had no idea what we where asking for as his English was terrible we also asked for water and was told they could sell us some but not give it to us. Unfortunately we didn’t enjoy our stay that much

Comfortable stay in beautiful location ”

Everything is expected of a Hilton Hotel except for the handful of staff members. Out of the 3 who served us, only one appeared to be fully trained in hospitality. Hopefully it gets better next stay.
