  • Older travelers

    The location is excellent and the front desk staff were helpful.

    The rooms are very small.The breakfasts were disappointing and should be served in a breakfast room and not left outside the door of the bedroom

    Very friendly / helpful staff and superb central location

  • Older travelers

    The great location and the helpfulness of the staff on our arrival. Unfortunately that did not continue.

    Our room was very cheaply finished and had a poor design but because of the great location and nice staff we booked a different, more spacious room for our return visit a few weeks later. Despite confirming this with 2 different members of staff before we left our rebooking was "lost" and little help was offered in finding alternative accomodation. The receptionist couldn't have cared less and couldn't get rid of us fast enough.

    the location of the hotel was by far the best thing about it but even that was marred by the smells coming from the nearby food outlet

    the reception staff member did not have very good customer service skills. The cooridor outside my room was quite dark and the room was incredibly dusty

    The best is the location; I hope the recent earthquake did not affect the staff nor the hotel,

    Wifi was not working

    The hotels location was it's best attribute. The staff were helpful, however were unable to accommodate a room change due to the many people staying at the hotel for Earthquake related issues.

    The fact that the 'Internet Computer' located on the second floor was always down.

    It's location is perfect for the New Zealand visitor.....and the access to internet was ideal to catch up with family news back home.

    I was perfectly content.

    It's funky decor and location bang in the centre of things.

    The reception staff were particularly helpful. Also received discounts at local restaurants as guests.

    Room service for breakfast as no dining room in hotel. Room was slightly small but comfortable..

  • Older travelers

    After a check in, the room provided to us was not to the standard what i was expecting and seen on the web. It was a small room with bunk bed arrangement and approach to to the room initially was scary which is not acceptable to the couple in the begining of their stay. After that, i have to request in the reception to change the room still was not satisfactory. In the name of security the arrangements are fine and properly advised to the guest at the time of check in.But in an emergency there is no way of contacting the reception when the person get locked in the car park area which is not good for the family or an individual so called safewty measures.

    very welcoming staff, personalised service, free drink with the owner on Friday night. Great location and characterful rooms. As an architect appreciate design and decorating flair. A unique and memorable experience which I would recommend to my friends.
