Right in the CBD Clean comfortable and great service. Valet parking was hassle free and very prompt service. A short drive to Cambridge and Lake Karapiro. Restaurants and shops at your door step. A great central place to stay for exploring the Waikato District. Friendly staff and the option of breakfast with your room. Great value for money.

A week before our stay we tried to book carparking. This took 6 phone calls and no could confirm that we could actually have a car...

Arrived at 2pm and there was a bit of congestion in reception. Check in was very average, staff member did not ask if I had stayed before, didn't even tell me my room number just handed me my room cards in a little card holder. Felt pretty underwhelmed by the whole check in process. Room was great, everything we needed,...

The hotel is well positioned with an easy walk to the town centre. Valet parking is a bonus, drive up and check in very easy. The room was clean, quiet with a king bed and had excellent river views. As Accor plus member we were able take advantage of free WIFI and discounted food.
