The room was clean and well furnished. Comfortable. Website needs to be updated. There is no restaurant existing now. A few choices of counter tea only in bar area.

Bed was comfortable and shared bathroom was clean. No tv in the room and no jug and toaster. There was a kitchenette down the hall for making tea and toast. Staff were friendly and helpful

Disappointing stay. Sheets unironed. Had to ask for more tea/coffee/milk - some of which was sour - and towels. Restaurant was closed and apparently will be for some time. No aircon. Only free view tv. Cars could be locked up but had to be in before 9pm and not want to leave before 8am

There was a band that wasn’t advertised on the booking site which was on the floor below our room and meant we couldn’t sleep until the band finished at 11.30pm. The fan didn’t go and we couldn’t open the window for fresh air due to the noise from the smoking area which was just below the bedroom. The alarm went off twice during the night.

The hotel is well past it's glory days but my room was clean and tidy and the bed very comfortable. If you decide to stay on a Friday night, a loud live band plays underneath you until midnight.

Very old hotel with lots of personality .Great potential but sadly leg down by cleanliness. Indian restaurant downstairs has excellent food but again a bit grubby with no attention to detail.

Good hotel - we stayed for one night to break our trip to Tauranga. Comfy bed, clean room. No fridge and the shower was very weak. Apart from that, an excellent stay. The new Indian restaurant (Spicy Bites) downstairs is awesome, and really generous servings!
