We spent a night in New Zealand at this hotel and it was a great introduction to the country and Auckland. Rather than hiring a car, we caught the shuttle in from the airport and found that we could reach on foot most of where we wanted to go. The hotel was two minutes away from Sky City which was the entry to the Sky Tower and a place for picking up the open top bus tours. The room was large and comfortable with a view of Auckland tower. The staff were excellent and informative and the facilities of the hotel were excellent.
