Positive Reviews

Very handy location

The vast majority of those who stay here identify the hotel's location as its best feature. Travellers really appreciate the fact it's so close to the city centre as it ensures the city's best restaurants, shops, and bars are within easy striking distance. Sports fans love being just ten minutes' walk from the Waikato Rugby Stadium.

Beds hit the spot

Many guests are won over by the beds in the accommodations. They are, reviewers note, really rather comfy.

Negative Reviews

Slippery showers

Guests mention that, perhaps due to the particular materials used, the floors in the showers here are a bit more slippery than is typically the case.

Extremely thin walls

The insulation properties of the walls separating the rooms is frequently called into question in reviews. Visitors note that sound travels far too easily between rooms, and as such it's almost impossible not to hear what neighbouring guests are talking about or watching on TV.

Parking isn't the best

Frustrated guests are unimpressed with the parking situation at this hotel. Reviewers say the bays are really very small, as is the actual compound; thus, getting one's car in and out of the car park can be quite a challenge.
