We were never contacted that this property was under construction
Never contacted in any way that this property was in construction. Room was fine. Hallways, elevator in disrepair, dimly lit, very few amenities for the rates. I would not have stayed there knowing what was going on. It was recommended by a friend in Wellington and she was quite embarrassed.

Average at best
Location and the art but the hotel was dated and unclean. Staff did respond to our concerns and so service was reasonable
Think the hotel is overpriced. Would not return

I know it seems petty, but crappy tv channel quality and no free wifi really does peg the score back. It's 2016 not 2001! Great location. Loved the bed, and the shower. I just expect the little details to be there to give it a 5 star rating.

The art, the room, 24 hour reception
Impressed that our room was ready early, so we were able to check in when we arrived (around 10.30am). Overall, hotel is great, however the gym is tiny and not well set up.
