2/5 Poor

Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
The hotel was below my expectations. The furniture and carpet shabby with stains. No visitor information in the room. No restaurant in the hotel. The hotel ambience felt and looked like a budget hotel. The room did not look like the photo however, the room was warm and the bed comfy. Bathroom clean but shower annoyingly on slow/low pressure. The staff lovely and helpful. The elevator broke down on my last day and had to carry bags down four steep flights of stairs. Overall experience 5/10 Will I stay there again?, probably not, the price paid was too high for the quality of hotel and services.

1/5 Terrible

Business traveller
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The decor was dated, facade looks tired and the room I had was dreadful insofar as there were stains on the carpet that could have been cleaned but weren't, I went out with friends and when I got back late the lift was out of order so had to use the stairs. Terrible, dirty and quite scary using those late at night. Went to have a shower... No hot water. Luke warm at best. There were people banging on doors at 4am so loud it woke me. For what I paid for the room, I would never stay here again and certainly would not recommend that anyone else do so. I did try again with the shower this morning and yes I did get some hot water... it lasted around 2 minutes - enough time to shampoo hair and then COLD only.- had to rinse my hair and body off with COLD water...not fun on a cold Waikato winters morning. All in all the worst stay for me ever anywhere!!!
