3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness
Close to town, perfect if your just looking for a place sleep and, use the bar and menu. Staff the nice for the most part. Rooms are tidy, when checking in 8.30pm the windows in the room were wide open, stone cold as it was 7 degrees at the time. Heating needs an upgrade as the wall heater in our room was beyond noisy, you definitely could not leave it going to hold a conversation or to sleep.

This hotel is an older property in Whangarei. But it's restaurants been updated and offers a great selection of food choices. The restaurant is well worth a visit alone. But the room was lacking. The heater was inefficient to heat the room. None of the rooms offer a tub, only showers. And the vanity in the bathroom was small. I was unable to fill the provided kettle, from the vanity. I had to take it to the front desk order Mohave it filled. Clearly the rooms need some updating. Otherwise, a pleasant stay in a convenient, quiet area of Whangarei.

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The room was clean and spacious with a lovely outlook from the top balcony to the bushland opposite. It is handy having the restaurant on the premises. It would be helpful if the advertising stated it was two story because part of our criteria was we wanted single story as we have challenges with climbing stairs - and then we could have requested the bottom floor.

Disliked: Cleanliness
The room was not what we booked and bore little resemblance to the description on the website. Lovely dinner. Friendly wait staff.
