Disappointing service and rooms not ready!
Check in was 2pm and we arrived at 2.05 planning to have an afternoon nap, then get ready to leave to go to a wedding down the road at 4pm. Unfortunately, the room was not ready, and we had to hang around until 3.10 to get into the room. Whereupon we had to race to get ready in time. If we had known, we wouldve stayed at home and gotten ready there. There were AT LEAST two other guests that this happened to as well, so it wasn’t a one-off occurrence. They offered us late checkout which was of no use to us, then Como breakfast, which TBH, was complete crap. Being your own food. The curtains were coming off their track and there was what looked like a bloodstain on the carpet. Not impressive. Disappointing response when I gave feedback. Judging by other feedback, the management of this hotel has declined in recent years. The chain management needs to step in and sort out.

Great Auckland Skyline Views
The place is a little drive away, but if your willing to commute and go through traffic everyday, the harborside and Auckland skyline views are worth it. The place itself is a little worse for wear and would greatly benefit from a little touch up. Cleanliness was meadiocre. Its a shame because this place has the potential to be one of the best stays (good views, ok commute, good staff) in Auckland. However, during the middle of our stay, we asked our room to be cleaned. Good thing we went back early because we found our hotel room door, wide open, with all our stuff, othes and bags hanging around. I mean, i dont think anything was stolen and it looked like we came back to our stuff like how we left it, but it appeared like the cleaner left our hotel door a-jar after cleaning the room. It looked like theh were understaffed and busy that day, but that was very unacceptable.

The room was large and a good price for the area. The kitchen was clean, tidy and kept well. The bathroom was big but a bit run down. I was in a garden apartment and there were ants along the wall in the lounge and into the bedroom.
