                      Handy to resturants, city casino,night life and relaxing.

                      Staff could have been more welcoming and friendly. However, they were professional.

                      Have stayed here many times. It is ideally located and probably the best hotel in Hamilton

                      Fees for parking

                      Very handy to where I needed to go.

                      Noisy heater with a squuking sound when the temprature goes above 18 degrees. I put it at 23 and couldn't sleep well.

                      In room spa did not work. That was why I paid so much for a deluxe suite :(

                      Nice and comfortable to come home to and very relaxing...

                      Spa was out of order which was the main reason for staying

                      We were able to dine at the restaurant with family and not have to look for somewhere to take us - we met with family and with 13 family members, the restaurant suited our needs.

                      The room wasn't ready on our arrival and had to wait until well after 2pm to be allowed to go up. This room was booked for elderly parents travelling from rotorua and, after a long drive, they then had to wait...

                      Nothing in particular that stood out. Good location though. Excellent evening meal.

                      Room was dirty, pillows smelled. Check out staff member was very unhelpful and off hand when I queried my account.

                      The location was great. Rooms service excellent. Close proximity to the casino was also good. Valet parking very prompt.

                      The extremely excessive costs for phone calls to Auckland and Australia. I have family that live here and phone often. We worked out that your hotel charges approximately 800% more than the cost of calls.

                      The location, the value for money it represented to us as a family, the service and the facilities.
