WORST hotel of our New Zealand trip
Worst hotel we stayed at in New Zealand. The receptionist was extremely rude to us as soon as we walked through the door (we had not even said a word yet). Our booking stated we would have free wifi in the room, but she would not honor this and made us sit in the lobby if we wanted wifi even though our room was in another building. We had several questions about the area, but the rude receptionist was still at the desk when we left in the morning, and we were too scared to ask her for help for fear of being yelled at and talked down to again, so we just left and tried to figure things out on our own. The room was clean, but very cold. We will DEFINITELY NOT be back. We gave every other hotel we stayed at in New Zealand 5 stars, but this one is just too awful. Stay elsewhere.

Pick it if you have nowhere to stay
The Room is old and the storage type electrical water heater at shower room is unacceptable for people looking for a warm water shower. There is problem with water disposal at shower compartment. You will hear the others moving around the corridor with wooden paving. You will feel the age of the building at every single step.

Disappointing, very old and poorly maintained!
When we arrived, we told we were getting an upgrade due to availability and was pleasantly surprised. However, was gravely disappointed on entering the room. The room is poorly maintained and very old, with rotting wood in places. The toilet looks like one out of a horror movie, where you can expect to find a dead, rotting body in the tub. Carpet is worn bare in places and the room has a stale smell. The worst thing is the room door is opaque glass, so while not exactly see-through, it does let the light in, so at night the room is not at all dark, and you can hear people walking up and down the corridor, casting shadows in your room. This was one of the most expensive rooms on our trip, yet the worst, hence very disappointed.
