3/5 Okay

Travelled with family
Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
Loved the old art deco style and large room. However the tea & coffee are of poor quality and very few tv channels available. In fact, when it was raining in the morning, the tv reception was CRAP 👎 THE COOK Restaurant was very good though for the price & Sunny? is an excellent chef & host 👍

Liked: Cleanliness
the hotel is quite run down and they are obviously in the process of doing it up, it took awhile to find someone so we could check so first impression was not great but when we got to our room we were very pleasantly surprised big light sunny room comfy bed bathroom though old in good working order and in fact the shower was one of the best showers we had on our trip round the top of the north island. would stay again.
