    Great place to chill and watch the world go by. Great view of Auckland. If cold the fire will most likely be lightening and you can sit and watch the boats sail by. Have not stayed in the hotel but there service is great.

    Only visited the location. Do not know what internal travel arrangements the hotel has. Suggest you contact the hotel directly. Could be well worth your while..
