Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
The building/rooms felt a bit tired (broken lift buttons etc), however they were currently in the process of painting and undergoing maintenance in some areas. Reception staff were friendly & prompt respond to any requests. Rooms were average condition but clean.

I liked the location. We were handy to most things that we wanted to do and it was big enough for the 5 of us. The room was not too clean, there was still crumbs and hair on the floor and we had to ask for amenities to clean our dishes as none had been provided. The staff were very friendly however and it was great to be able to store our luggage.

Travelled with family and small children
Liked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Property was well located in inner city Auckland but paying $37/night to park in a narrow cramped and overcrowded onsite carpark was a bit much when we drove around the corner and saw a public carpark for $15/night

Lady at the reception was very helpful. The place was a bit dated, room service never happened in 3 nights of stay, had to ask for extra towels. Room was clean but dated.
