Very pleasant hotel near central Takapuna (and the beach). Quite spacious. Very quiet at the moment. Staff were all very nice. Also near to multiple cafes and restaurants, although they are closed due to lockdown at present.

    Excellent and convenient location, only couple of minutes' walk to shops and eating places. Most beautiful views from our apartment. We were on the 15th floor, however, with the renovation work going on, there was constant drilling and hammering to a degree that we couldn't feel relaxed in our apartment. The food at the hotel restaurant was very good and the barman, David, provided us with excellent service.

    Location was good. Room set up was poor. Cards kept losing their magnetic code.
