9,6 Excellent
Pros: Central, close to water, reasonable views, nice people overall well presented on an overview.
Cons: Maintenance needs to be better. Screw missing from shower door so screw needs replacing. Vinyl coming off cabinets so replacement is needed. Water ingress into cabinets. Also noted the floor fire doors do not close within 20 seconds. Also noted that all doors require fire door signage on each of the room doors. Building is therefore not compliant. Call me for advice!
10,0 Excellent

8,8 Excellent
Cons: That the beds could not be split into singles
7,1 Good
Pros: We decided last minute to stop over before heading back to AKL. Friendly front of house staff member during the initial check-in. Due to our 5am departure,we weren't able to enjoy the inclusive breakfast but I'm sure that too would have been on par. Bed was comfy and the sleep revitalising for the journey ahead. Overall I can't complain.
Cons: No major gripes. I did realize after returning home that a garment was accidentally left in the room.. woops human error! I should have followed up but surely we could have been advised to say the least. The room was dimly lit which was probably due to its location just above the covered entrance.
