Atmosphere, staff, sitting lounges

Great-the hotel has character with its old lifts, spacious sitting rooms and wonderful antique furniture but it's definitely not run down or aged. Everything works well and the staff were always helpful. The only dinner I had there was great- fresh salad and delicious fish. I will be back twice more during my stay in NZ and am looking forward to it.

quirky hotel in central area”

Very handy to walk to town centre, restaurants and station. We really liked it’s uneven floors, interesting decor and fascinating history. We stayed in a large suite with plenty of room to spread out. There were some drawbacks however. The room was very noisy as it faced state highway 1. There were quite a few maintenance issues such as LED down lights that flashed on and off, power sockets falling out of the wall and no way if putting the security chain on the door. In spite of these issues, the place has character and we really liked it.
