    Nice staff and nice location. 25 minute walk to centre of city.

    A bit overpriced and wouldn't recomend it for what we paid. There was industrial tape in the bedside table, which was a bit creepy.

  • Single
    6.6

    I was not happy when the house bar shut at around 8 30 pm however I also understand you must have enough patrons to keep it open bearing in mind staffing.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Very conveniet location.

    TV 2 was black n white, one light bulb was out and could hear the people up stairs.

  • Older travelers
    9.2

    Easy find location. Comfortable and affordable accommodation. Good off street parking.

    Restaurant service was not up to standard. Staff wandering around looking for who ordered what is not a good look. Deserts were disappointing.

  • Single

    All staff friendly and helpful. Clean was clean and tidy. Room was warm on arrival from heater which was great.

  • Older travelers

    Well equipped rooms around central courtyard

    Traffic noise from nearby streets in early morning hours; sound insulation between rooms could be better

    price, location, good room, exellent staff

  • Older travelers
    5.8

    The staff were extremely friendly and helpful - particularly when we had no TV picture to watch the All Blacks! they really did try their best to restore teh picture! Lovely garden and suitable parking

    The furniture is definitely tired and in need of replacing. the bathroom had no heating and no extractor, so the window had to be open to let out the steam. Really in need of some updating and re decoration, particularly for the price. Noisy rooms - need sound insulation.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    friendly staff, walkable to city and stadium, off-street parking (although full on the night of my stay). Clean, perfectly adequate rooms.

    The building was rather dated inside & out (the well kept garden brightened things up a bit though). Overall the experience was fine, but at $164 for a single room it wasn't cheap, although it felt like a good budget motel.

  • Couple
    7.0

    Rooms and fittings getting a little 'tired', but very clean and neat.

  • Single
    10.0

    Uncomplicated Breakfast was simple but nice.

  • Group of friends
    3.8

    The Beds were uncomfortable. Electric Blankets didn't work. Food was expensive and not at all quality.
