Every thing was good & easy to access & use etc. Facilities, restaurant & pub all very convenient & service quick & friendly. One thing missing: no Sky TV--we look for international news etc & for your calibre it should be there. Excellent position & close to all town activities & of course the art deco wonders. Otherwise very good...

We enjoyed our short stay in the hotel; our room was very 'Art Deco' as we expected. The service was acceptable and adequate but the lack of a safe in the room was surprising. It was comfortable enough but is in need of some refurbishment, keeping it in the Art Deco style, which we found so appealing.

Spent three nights here. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped. Was nice to have air conditioning, as many hotels in New Zealand do not. A rooftop patio is nice for relaxing and gives a good view of the surrounding area. The hotel has a good restaurant and Irish pub within the building.

This is a lovely place to stay, with great style, good practical facilities (e.g. washing machine and drier for guest use) and beautiful roof gardens to relax in. The superior room we had was very small, and directly above the pub that forms part of the ground floor of the hotel, resulting in noisy nights.

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to post your review. Our balcony is a hidden gem. Whilst most room have direct access to it, all guests can use it whilst staying here. Enjoying views out to the Pacific Ocean it's great for breakfast in the morning, or a quiet drink later on. Thanks again. Regards, Graeme

And, an amazingly attentive staff. However, that's the BEST thing. The rooms are tired and not looked after (paint peeling, holes in the wall) despite the recent remodel and our bathroom in room 133 was TINY. It looks like there's more attention given to the lobby and Emporium restaurant and the other common spaces than the rooms. + I take...

Hi there, Thanks for your review. It's unfortunate that you did not enjoy your room and you chose to make a generalization about our hotel. Did you see other rooms as well? Did you pass on your concerns about your room during your stay and were you offered another room? Regarding the pricing structure, we operate a dynamic pricing method...

Delightfully restored (after dark days many years ago). Our small suite was very comfortable with a roomy bed - sitting room, a separate 'tea station' and roomy bathroom facilities. We attended a function in the Gatsby Room and enjoyed the breakfast buffet

If you can splash the cash for a stay in the suite, just do it. We only had one night but it was superb. Room was stunning, staff very helpful. A great way to celebrate something special. A fantastic two bedroom suite with all amenities.
