4/10 Fair

The best thing in our room was the comfortable king size bed and pillows. The rooms are in need of refurbishment, probably the only update in the last 50 years was the addition of a heat pump. No seating in the room except for one tall stool, no hairdryer, TV only receiving Freeview channels, but not TV1 or TV2. Only kitchen items were cups, glasses, plates, cutlery, a fridge, microwave and jug in the room. But there is no tap or sink in the room to fill the jug - need to use a communal kitchen to cook and wash dishes. Room is marketed as Luxury, but not in this century.

Very clean. House keeping done every day. Parking a little tight. Road was noisy 1 night out of 5 we stayed there. Staff were lovely. Good location for cafes, mcdonalds and right next to a shopping centre. Easy access to motorway, airport and Manukau. Would stay again.
