Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The greeting we received was poor and it was an indicator of how the rest of the stay would pan out . At $143.00 per ight for their best room it was extremely excessive . Anywhere else in NZ this poor quality of ammenities is $75 a night . We should have walked out after the greeting but hoped it would improve . The upstairs tv , furniture/fittings are a joke . Our ensuite smelt and the toilet and shower were more than ancient . Luckily we did not use the shared facilities . We have stayed at hotels from 2 to 5 star around the world and this was bar far the most overpriced underperforming accomodation we have stayed at in over 40 years of commercial travel . We had a meal and the Seafood ? Chowder was warm , had it replaced and advised when paying that the service at table was sub standard . No concern shown by the Manager ?? . We have eaten here many times pre earthquake and and thought maybe ownership had changed but were advised this was not the case . Our questions are , Why is this low level of untrained ,uncaring staff working in this operation , why is the accomodation so expensive when the state of rooms/ammenities so pathetic ? . Other guests were unhappy when we talked about it . Having managed and still owning our own businesses we could offer plenty of constructive advice . IT WAS A NIGHT OF LOW QUALITY ACCOMMODATION and service WHICH I UNFORTUNATELY PAID 214 HARD EARNED DOLLARS FOR , BUT NEVER AGAIN WILL I GO ANYWHERE NEAR THIS GROSSLY OVERPRICED DUMP .
