              This is a cheap but clean city hotel and offers value for money. The staff were very helpful. There is a courtesy bus to and from the train station and ferry terminal.

              The hotel has seen better days. It is in need of a refurbishment. Some of the furniture was chipped and in some places the carpet was faded and in need of repair. It is a controversial hotel and on reflection we should have chosen a more expensive hotel.

              The hotel is conveniently situated. It was basic but comfortable The staff were very helpful even helping me sort out a glitch in my computer. I would definitely stay there again, and I would recommend it to others.

              No complaints.

              The area this hotel was in was good for city and Botanic Gardens

              The hotel was not good in any way, it had wallpaper coming off the walls the furniture was old and tired and the carpets old and torn in places, the kitchen was non functional in the mornings so there were no cooked breakfasts for clients. Before leaving this hotel we handed in a complaints form and as yet we have not heard from them.

              Staff in dining room were very pleasant and allowed us a cup of milk for my pregnant daughter - our shopping trip to Wellington.

              We arrived, the entry door had several cracks in it. The body of the hotel was very tired. Staff OK. Went to room, no kettle. Went down to ask for one, but told it may not be available, he would look. Kettle arrived. Room very poor condition. Towels threadbear only two, no bathmat. Shower leaked all over the floor, cracked plastic wall, black mould covering 50% shower wall, disintergrating wall at shower floor level. Checked beds. Both sets thread bare, you could see through them. Dubious as to whether they had been changed at all. Mine had several large marks on the turnover, definitely not clean. Asked for change of sheets and bathmat. Staff forgot and went off duty. Another member eventually brought them to us. Remade bed myself. If we could have found other accommodation we would have moved for the 2nd night, but town booked up. Would not go again.

              No towels in the bathroom, old grey and thin sheets, everything smelled damp right from when I came in. Was greeted by a back packer type of guy without andy shoes on - does not create a very good impression. Everything was old, tired and needs bowling to be honest!

              Access to free internet wireless service and its close proximity to the city centre at a reasonable price.

              Room service difficult to access. Wrong phone no. given on the telephone key pad in the room.

              Location was quite good.

              The name on the booking form was different to the actual hotel name, which meant finding it was a bit tricky. The hotel said this was down to not changing it on their website. The hotel in general was quite old and it showed. It could really do with being refurbished, however it was clean enough.

              I arrived late on the Friday evening (4 hour drive) The chef assisted me with my bags from the car.

              In my room, door did not lock, used chain. Phone was not working I was too tired to go back downstairs to report. Coffee plunger was dirty, there were no coffee beans. Althought the sheet indicated there should be. I think my room number was 417

              We enjoyed being just out of the central city better value opposite botanical gardens for walks we walked back to town only 10 mins down hill and were on bus route every 20 mins very convenient

              We didnt expect the earth rooms getting a little tired but it was a bed and very clean akso difficult to find initially because it was a different name on line booking
