This property is very dated. My room was dark and had an old musty/Smokey smell. Cleanliness was probably ok but because everything is dated didn’t have a clean feel to it. Room service dinner was very yummy lamb rack.

Rooms were spotless, beds very comfy. Heaters didn’t work & need an easier entry into the hotel after hours.

Great stay, nice staff ! It puzzles me how your hotel advertises a fabulous upmarket dinner experience offering New Zealand awarded cuisine etc, whilst giving the guest possibly their first dining experience there, a breakfast that beggars belief in bad quality. No cutlery laid up, just bare tables, a lay out that requires one to walk round the room constantly collecting things from different areas, old fashioned white pepper pots, salt that is caked wet and unusable every day, A tea coffee station hidden from view, coffee via a dispensing machine, really cheap tea bags, We haven't even got to the cooked breakfast yet ! I cannot imagine the food wastage with the kitchen keeping up a constant supply of extra bacon, eggs, homebrand tinned spaghetti etc for imagined guests, the place was deserted ! I guess the staff all eat well from the leftovers ! Cheap bread, burned bacon, leathery fried eggs, horrible mini weaner hot dog style sausages that even my dog would not eat, all add to the experience Evening dining, forget it !
