4/10 Fair

Too cold for comfort!
The room was so cold and no operable heat. They claimed they had to order a new coil for the heater and that it wouldn’t arrive until after I left. They had to bring me another think blanket and a portable heater that kept me up due to the noise it generated. They said they would have comped me 50% of the room but could not because I booked through here. So I was not compensated. Horrible experience for a luxury line for the price I paid.

Meh, to put it nicely.
The hotel itself was nice and clean. They try to be chic and accommodating, but the staff wasn't very helpful and tried to give us the run around when we expressed our disappointment in the room we were given. Just a heads up that your city view is of a bus parking lot. You need to upgrade if you want a harbor or atrium view. They told us they tried to get ahold of us to change our room to an atrium view, but never left a note in our room or a message on our room phone. Then when they did see us said it was no longer available. For a higher end hotel I found this unacceptable. They gave us a late check out and a couple drinks at the bar to ease our frustrations. Disappointing stay given the customer service.

2/10 Poor

Booked & fully pre-paid a "luxury room" but was given the most basic room type (2 levels down). And that particularly room was facing a busy construction site, reeked of mold and we both woke up the next morning with bed bug bites on our legs. Disgusting. Equally disappointing: how the property dealt with the situation. At check-in I was simply told that I had booked a "superior room". After double checking my booking, I complained resulting in the check-in person pretending to not understand me. After escalating to the hotel manager the first sentence out of his mouth was "Oh, I knew about the fact that we don't have your originally booked room available - there is an issue with that room". Pointing out that I wasn't told about the situation at check-in, the person that checked us in outright lied, insisting that she had informed us (she didn't) and that she even gave us club access for free drinks (the latter is true, but was given without any explanation - nor does it seem like an appropriate compensation). Second sentence from the hotel manager: "Since you booked and pre-paid via Expedia, there is nothing we can do - normally we would refund you". That lead to a lot of back and forth starting again with an offer for free drinks ending with us 10k receiving loyalty points. All that was before we even saw the room with all its issues (facing construction site, reeking of mold & bed bugs on top). The only good experience was that Expedia ended up reimbursing us fully.

Excellent service -
Absolutely amazing getaway for long weekend for local family. We booked with10 years old child and they provided rollaway bed which I forgot to request! - very comfortable too. Pool and gym was clean and all showers in the pool also connected to Spa shower so all top quality experience. their pebble water pond create a relax and remote feeling from the busy Auckland city. Continental Breakfast buffet was simple but all fresh and tasty- overnight oats were so good. We ordered cafe style breakfast menu as well. All very tasty. It is free breakfast for kids.
