My work colleague recommended Holiday Inn to us and also raved about Chapman's Restaurant. I took her word for it and got excited to enjoy our 1 year Wedding Anniversary upon making the booking.
husband and I work really hard, and we rarely travel or enjoy the luxuries like some "well travelled" travellers. For us, this was an absolute treat as we didn't have a chance to go on our honeymoon but, this mini getaway was well worth it.
Our room wasn't ready upon check in so we got upgraded to a room on the top floor that had a balcony. The room was perfect in everyway and was very compact but had everything you needed including a view of Whakarewarewa Village.
We took advantage of room service for the first time and enjoyed our meal while watching TV in the comfort of our room. I ran off those extra kilo's the next morning in the well equipped gym while my husband enjoyed the heated pool/spa facilities before we made the most of the beautiful buffet breakfast at Chapman's. We couldn't pass the opportunity and enjoyed a few ales at the bar while watching the Warriors game before heading out to dine at a local favourite.
The staff at Holiday Inn were overall amazing, friendly and very professional. The food was divine, the room was perfect and my husband and I had the best weekend ever.
Our stay was so enjoyable that we plan on returning to Holiday Inn with our children so they can experience what we did as well.
Thank you Holiday Inn for a memorable experience. We will be back !! [Less]
