        The breakfast and restaurant, bed was comfortable, good location. I knew it was budget accomodation when I booked it so was fine with dated decor etc

        It said it had sky moves but only had sky preview channel. Also no dvd player in room. Gym was not open early enough for my liking

        good heater, bed was comfy.

        We got put in an upstairs room when my partner was on crutches, and twice we left our breakfast order outside the room far before the collection cutoff of 10pm only for it to still be there in the morning.....

        Quality of the hotel room. Old, tired, carpet lifting off the floor in places - more reminiscent of outdated tourist flats in camping grounds. Leaking water dripping from ceiling onto floor from room above by morning! TV very small and reception so bad it was un-watchable. Found great TV in bar to watch The Royal Wedding but evicted half way through as it was time for staff to depart and that was that!

      • Older travelers

        Extremely friendly, efficient and helpful reception staff. Room, as always, very clean and tidy. Bed very comfortable.

        Sofa in lounge very, very dated and extremely uncomfortable.

        The receptionist offered and ordered a taxi and it did arrive on time.

        Tired decor and very dark and smelt musy.The shower in the bath had very little pressure. The seating in front of the TV was uncomfortable.

      • Family with children

        I liked the fact that the heating in the room was awesome and I totally loved it!!!

        My son and husband had a 7min shower and I went to have shower and the water was cold all of a sudden so I had a very icy cold sower so was n't pleadsed with that...

      • Family with children

        I enjoyed its accessibility to Papanui road, and Merivale, as well as the nice compact layout. I liked the diversity of the staff and their great manners, and the benches out side units. My 5 year old loved the sycamore tree at the back, where collected dozens of helicopters to take back to Wellington.

        Nothing really...oerhaps a little more cutlery in the roms, as we stayed and ate quite a bit in the rooms with nothing but a teaspoon toeat with. That was inconvenient. A couple of plates, a fork and knife would have been all we needed.

      • Older travelers

        The reception staff were friendly enough, but a litle warmth would have gone further than being efficient, like it has shown by other hotels we have stayed around the south island during our two weeks of holiday there.
