    Very good

    liked kitchenette and appreciated that could store luggage for a short time while taking a short trip outside Auckland. Close to bus station.

    Felt awkward that had to walk through business office to storage closet for luggage as this must interrupt the staff to have people tramping in and out and having all kinds of luggage stored around them. Location ight next to police station made me feel safer but did have some street noise that was bothersome.

    Fabulous

    Comfortable and clean. Staff polite and very helpful. Convenient location.

    During our second stay we couldn't get the airconditioner to work. We had to open the window for fresh air. The ironing board was broken. I'm not complaining just letting you know. Also just a heads up some of the cleaning staff require deodorant.

    Superb

    Clean, comfortable and well serviced by the operators. Great central location.

    Whilst I stayed here, the weather was quite warm. In the evenings, the room held onto the heat. I missed having a fan or cooling system in the room.

    Very good

    Comfrtable and suited our needs. Reasonable value for money. Parking in underground car park a bit tight and for $20 a night a bit expensive

    I love the facilities and the cleaneness of your apartment, excellent, keep it up.

    please allocate dressing table in the room or at least a mirror, all ladies will appreciate it...:)

    Good

    The hotel was reasonable. The position was good, the unit was well equipped and the unit was clean.

    We were given the feeling that everything costs money and therefore things were dished out from a tight fist. The internet connection was a disaster. I suggest that the cost of providing internet be incorporated in the rate.
