Positive Reviews

Conveniently located hotel

No matter where you are coming from and what form of transport you use, you should find this hotel to be well-situated. Guests say it is close to the motorway (leading to the airport), the two ferry terminals and the railway station. If you're in town to catch a rugby game, the hotel is also within easy reach of the stadium. The CBD is not far away and there is a supermarket close by.

Excellent value

The hotel is far from being deluxe, but guests say that it has everything you need. The beds are very comfortable and there is a decent breakfast included in the room rate.

Amazing staff

On the whole, guests find the staff to be very amenable, with a genuine desire to help. They seem happy and welcoming and very friendly.

Negative Reviews

Parking issues

The parking situation could tarnish your whole experience at this hotel. Despite being informed that reservations are not necessary (or even possible) for the parking, guests frequently find that there are no more spaces left and they have to park elsewhere – at a cost. Parking seems to be extremely limited and awkward – which could add extra stress to your travels. Guests are not too happy to have to pay extra for this either.

Looking a bit dated

Guests often comment that the rooms look like they have come from another era. They are decorated in an old-fashioned style – perhaps from the Seventies or Eighties, and are starting to look tired. A quick refresh, or better yet a full refurbishment, could make a huge difference.

Housekeeping a bit light

You may get the impression that cleaning isn't given top priority here. Guests often remark that the cleanliness of the rooms could be improved.
