Reception staff were friendly and accomodating. However we were not prewarned about the Waka Ama event which booked out the entire restaurant. We couldnt even order room service due to the business of the evening event so hjad to buy KFC offsite instead. Hoping to get a continental breakfast in the morning was not possible as the restaurant was closed until 11am and we were advised we had to porder the night before, which under the circumstances was not possible. The shower utilities were uncomfortable as the water blast from the shower flooded the entire toilet/bathroom due to a shorter than normal shower curtain.

When I first arrived reception and building front looks modern. As I walked to my unit I thought this was a bit of a rip as the buildings are quite old. My unit was in an even older block out back. Getting worried. Was older but clean. Minimal But ticked the boxes I required as far as a place to sleep with tv, hot drink facilities, bathroom shower. Overall it did what was required I walked out rested and happy. Reasonable value although the wifi was quite slow. Got there in the end.
