            Great location near the waterfront. The gym facilities were good with friendly staff. Good hotel for business trips.

            Breakfast closed at 10am, which for a hotel of this brand and quality I felt was an hour too early.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            excellent hotel,close to attractions and city centre

          • Older travelers
            7.4

            The staff in the Club Lounge were very good, especially Nina. Food quality and presentation in Chameleon Restaurant was excellent. The hotel is centrally located relative to commercial activities, shops and public transport. Underground parking and a guest laundry in the same building is a plus.

            It is now getting quite tired/dated and in need of refurbishment. Attentativeness of waiters in Chameleon Restaurant could be improved. The lack of a fine dining restaurant separate from the general lobby area detracts from the dining experience. It was disappointing that the bed turn down service did not occur on 2 out of the 7 nights of our stay.

          • Single

            Excellent location, helpful & friendly staff in all areas.

            We liked the Hotel! And we particularly liked the Breakfast Room upstairs. It had such a nice feeling about it and also a lovely view.Thank you.

            The fact that our booking had been muddled some how and we had two separate bookings (for 2 nights). Thanks to the girls on the desk, we were upgraded and our room (though amazingly crowded with furniture!) was comfortable and had a wonderful view.

            High spec hotel. Sophisticated style. Excellent and attentive staff.

            I think it may need a refurb if some rooms in the near future.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            The ease of booking in and staying with you. Simple and short no fuss. also like the lounge for breakfast which as always was great

            9.6

            Very Friendly Stff, nothing to much trouble for the few staff we had to deal with directly. Excellent help from the concierge desk!!!

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            The location for shopping, and closeness to the waterfront, particularly the Queens Wharf bars and restaurants, can't be beat. The proximity to the harbour also means attractions such as Te Papa museum are a short pleasant stroll away along the waterfront. The hotel itself is getting on in years now, but still offers quiet, comfortable accommodation with a touch of class.

            We booked for two separate stays of two and four nights a number of months prior to our trip and were disappointed to find that the entire cost of both stays was deducted from our credit card about two months prior to us actually staying there.

          • Couple
            9.2

            I found all staff excellent

            The fact that when we arrived we did not have a room on the Thurs evening, the hotel overbooked and we then had to move to another hotel for that night away from all other conference guests, although we were compensated by not having to pay for that night, it was still inconvenient
