Stayed one night on a tour of New Zealand. Rooms are very large and was told that this was a former office building. Very good food. Friendly and helpful staff. Room and public areas clean. No street noise. Hotel caters to tourist groups and business travel, although there were many on a driving vacation. Was on an AATKing Tour which...

We had a room on the 8th floor overlooking the harbour and wharf area. Great outlook and deck for use when sunny. Curtains don't reach the ceiling and therefore don't block out all light and the sun sets late in this part of the world. Also, the bed was far too soft to be very comfortable. Room large and clean...

Dear jonsean, Thanks very much for taking the time to post a review after your recent stay with us.

We were thrilled to discover our deluxe booking was a spacious penthouse double-suite with double-length patio overlooking the city and the harbour. The bed was super-comfortable with a wide range of luxury pillows to choose from to ensure the best night's sleep. Room service was excellent. The hotel staff were friendly and efficient and made us feel most welcome. We...

Really good place, nice and handy to the Octagon and settlers museum. Nice rooms and friendly staff, good system with the parking too. 200 is a lot of caricatures not sure what else to say, just a regular sort of hotel but a good one.

Rooms quite small. We ordered room service and our food was luke warm. I woke in the middle of the night with food poisoning. I could not even leave the hotel until the next afternoon. Staff were not interested and still even charged us for the meal. Disgusting attitude and will never stay here again,

Dear NZshona, Thanks for posting a review but it is possible that you may have posted to our hotel by mistake?

This hotel has the most comfortable beds. The rooms are spacious, great service and restaurant was good too. Location is handy to all main shops and restaurants. I will definitely stay again... If it's a good night sleep you're after, then this is the place to stay.

Have stayed a few times on business. I appreciate the 24 hour front desk coverage since I normally arrive after 9:30pm. The rooms are spacious and clean. Food at the restaurant/bar is good and fairly priced. Can be a bit of a delay with the valet in the mornings.
