Recent reviews

Good 7.8 From 211 reviews

Very good 8.0
Friendly staff....
Was upgraded on arrival however room given didn’t have balcony as per what I’d booked, staff changed my room without hesitation. Rooms definitely need air con as a ceiling fan does not cool a room down when it’s a 30 degree day. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Kids room off the bar wasn’t great as very noisy with yells if kids when you’re trying to have a quiet drink. Overall a good stay and will definitely stay again once air con installed in rooms.

Very good 8.0
Bike friendly .....sort of
Enjoyed the stay overall. Breakfast was good. The rooms were very hot and had no air conditioning. Is a very bike friendly place, with great wash and lockup facilities - apart from no facility to charge an e bike.
Sian, nz1 night family trip
Good 6.0
Too hot to handle
For a family of four the room was the right size but there were some issues. The room was too hot especially with one ceiling fan. Only supplied two towels, mugs. We have to ask for more towels. I am not sure about the cleanliness of the place as I had to shift the bed to be closer to the fan, and underneath the bed had some rubbish. One good point is the swimming pool as the kids enjoyed it.

Hotel needs a good clean/repainting refurb
Bed was very comfortable and the room was spacious. The room service food was excellent. Unfortunately the room and hotel was very dirty and dusty. I found someone else’s medication under the bed. Paint was flaking off the walls.
