The food has a simplicity and unpretentiousness that makes you feel at ease. Traditional fare that hasn't been over-complicated or fallen prey to the ego of the Head Chef. An extensive 'grill' section showcases the best produce that New Zealand has to offer. Our signature Chateau Briande is a new take on a classic dish. A culinary gem! The extensive wine cellar invites you to experience a journey of some of New Zealand's most renowned wines.

A GREAT PLACE

My stay at the hotel was great. The room was a great value for the money. I had a large bed, desk, and a small sofa, in addition to a good sized bathroom. The hotel was free wireless which seems to be rare in Auckland. The only downside was that you would have to log again after four hours, but it was not that big of a deal. The hotel is walking distance from the wharf area and Queen Street. The Sky Tower is up the street. I would stay there again if I visited Auckland again.

Great Hotel in Auckland

Just a few blocks from the Airport Express bus which you get right outside the terminal, this hotel had all I needed for my stay as a single woman. Comfortable, clean and I felt very safe and well taken care off in every aspect. I got a late checkout and they took care of my bags until I was ready to leave by the airport bus, right on Queen Street. Couldn't have been better!

Airport Express bus to and from downtown.... $16 and close to all hotels and the harbour. Get it right outside the terminals and you get off at Queen Street within a block or two of most hotels. Quick and cheap compared to taxis!

Good location and good service

Hotel breakfast was a little pricey $24NZ but good selection for a cold buffet with meats and cheeses as well as pastry, fruit and yogurt. By and large, staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable but one member of the staff gave me bad information on how to get to the museum by public transportation. I walked way farther than I needed to to pick up the bus in very bad weather. Over all, a very pleasant place to stop in Aukland. I would definitely recommend it to my friends.

Victoria Park Market is still mentioned in some guide books as a place to shop. DON'T DO IT! The place is filthy, dilapidated and the goods are of the cheapest quality.
