If you are in Auckland, definitely choose this hotel to stay at.
We were coming off 2 flights from a total of about 20 hours of travelling, so we were exhausted and we wanted to quickly get to a comfy bed. Reception staff were all smiles and check-in process was
very efficient and smooth. We were upgraded to a suite with a balcony and had breakfast included. This was all done without us asking for anything. The hotel design itself creates for some relaxing atmosphere. Loved the garden outside. You can have your coffee sitting there after you are done with breakfast. By the way, breakfast is not to be missed, as it has great variety of food choices and I would rate it in the top 10% of all Holiday Inns that I've previously stayed at. The suite had everything we needed. A comfy bed and even a jacuzzi style bathtub. I've called down to ask for some bottled water and to my surprise, it was delivered very quickly. Too bad we stayed only one night at this property, but it was all we needed to get us re-charged for the active holidaying in NZ. Thank you again! [Less]
