Everything too old

Posted Jul 30, 2014
Pros: The lady and the man in the office
Bedsettee was uncomfortable for my grandchildren, the mattress wasn't a mattress it was a thin camping mattress,. It looked like someone had already slept on the bedsettee, did they check last time someone was in the room. The fridge froze the milk overnite. The pool was tepid not even heated enough we got cold in it so didn't stay in long. We had to ask for pool towels of which we were given 1 as the rest hadn't been dried in the dryer. We arrived after 3 30p 4pm. I have to admit Id never go there again, really disappointed. They need to update everything furniture etc. We got cheap alright like I said I wouldn't go there again even if it was cheaper.

Tired an needs upgrading.

Posted Jul 22, 2014
Pros: Spa bath. Kids liked the pool
Cons: Service, booking system, some TLC to rooms.
Location: Squash club, Waikato Staduim, The Base. It was reasonably central.
I booked through expedia but ended up ringing and upgrading to a bigger room. Spoke to them twice. When we checked the upgrade had not been done and they wanted to charge me extra $20 per night than quoted. Rooms very tired. Heater didn't work and was -4 degrees. All taps dripped. The room need a good paint and dust. Spa bath was a bit tired but worked well. The shower just dribbled out.

Nice and handy to central city.

Posted May 19, 2014
Pros: Handy to where we needed to be during our stay.

Friendly Staff

Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good location (walking distance to supermarket, food places and rugby stadium), Although rooms are a little out dated, our 1 bedroom family room was very suited to our needs.
