    Location could not be better. One step out of the door and you are in the heart of the city. Modern rooms large enough. Good restaurant.

    Gym could be bigger and with real equipment. It's pity that most of 4 star hotels world wide have gyms next to nothing.

    Superb

    All staff were extremely polite,friendly and helpful. Good security in that the lifts had to be operated using your card key first. Excellent position right next to the cathedral. Good dining facilities. We received complimentary breakfasts.

    A small niggle was that the volume of the piped music in the restaurant was obtrusive.

    Good city centre location.

    Booked.net website said $135 room charge - account charge was $139 (rushing to airport at 4.00am, so no time to argue). Website also said there was an airport shuttle service - I have always taken this to mean it would be a complimentary shuttle, and this is often one of my criteria in selecting a hotel. Hotel would only oredr a commercial shuttle service, and we had to pay shuttle service on pick-up.

    Modern, clean, large rooms, staff friendly & helpful. Nice iMacs for guest use in reception.

    Parking difficult.

    Fabulous

    Nice hotel from major Accor Chain, free internet at Macintoshs in the lobby for 20mins/day. I would only recomend if there are any deals involved.

    No breakfast included, rooms can be noisy on the first floors and hot because there´s no air conditioning. You have to deposit 100 nzd for eventual expenses in the hotel.

    Very good

    The heritage room (224) and bathroom were spacious. The hotel being on Cathedral Square was very convenient, and if you have a car on weekends there is plenty of nearby free street parking if you don't want to use the valet service offered by the hotel. The reception staff were young and clearly well trained.

    The top of our wardrobe appeared to have never been dusted and there was some broken glass from a wine glass left underneath a bed sidetable. It would appear that the cleaning staff are not as well trained as the reception staff!

    Fabulous

    Great location.

    Parking was a bit of a mission - ended up using the valet service which was great but additional cost of $25.00 per night. The bathroom really needs a blind over the window - it's a bit disconcerting to be sitting on the toilet right in front of a window that looks out on Cathedral Square with nothing but a bit of frosted glass to preserve your dignity!! I ended up hanging a blanket over the window!!
