Just a night in the city
Very basic room , but I guess you get what you pay for. Parking was a mission & had to park a mile away, but this is common with some Auckland properties.
Leon, nzOther trip
Very good 8.0
My only criticism is that the lounge area often/usually had on-going loud music with ++ bass playing ( ie afternoons and evening ), making it unusable for reading , watching TV, talking , or just chilling. As this was the only space with comfortable/soft seating , it meant I spent my spare evenings sitting on a hard basic chair in my solo room or tiny dining room.
