A great break

Customer review rating 4.6/5

Christine Couples - 12/09/2019 AccorHotels review

We had a great break, very relaxing. Being Gf as an allergy was fine when having breakfast, but there were very limited options in the evening. Vegetables as sides, were not always available due to cross contamination. The food was wonderful, but we stayed for three nights, making the choices difficult. It would be the dining that may limit our stays in future. Thanks for the lovely calm weekend.

Nice Facilities good staff

Very pleasant. Buffet breakfast was very basic, but adequate. Access to tv /Sky channels could include more sky channels. No hotel directory in the room.

Flawless experience

Gail T. Couples - 09/09/2019 AccorHotels review

Staff were fantastic - helpful & friendly. Restaurant overpriced, tho' food was prettily presented, tasted good, but the quantity left alot to be desired. I had the lemon merangue cheesecake. It was deconstructed (not noted on the menue) There was a small pile of crumbs, a squeeze of filling as long & wide as my forefinger, & a couple of dots of something syrupy. Not enough for even a small slice, & a total ripoff for $18.

Wonderful

Wonderful stay with a terrific initial reception from Larina; her enthusiasm is infectious. I arrived very weary from a 5 hour drive to the hotel and her very cheery disposition perked me right back up. What a pleasant welcome!

Everything was great.

Kate Business - 06/09/2019 AccorHotels review

I have stayed here many times and this time I felt the service and food left a lot to be desired We worked all night and then ordered dinner. We wanted to take it to our room but we’re told we were not allowed unless we wanted room service. I do this all the time at the other hotels I stay at and just drop the dishes back to the restaurant but the guy who served us was quite rude and pushy and wouldn’t let us unless we ordered it as room service. So we sat in the restaurant and when the food arrived the fish smelt terrible and the cheese on the platter was all dry and looked like it was leftover from breakfast that morning. We told the guy and he said he would talk to the chef and was quite pushy once again. All we wanted was a simple meal at the end of a busy day and he make it difficult. In the end he took it off our bill but then we hadn’t eaten it because it tasted bad and we ended up waking to mc Donald’s where the staff were helpful and the meal was good. Not a great experience this time around.

Reasonable stay

Customer review rating 4.6/5

Matt Business - 06/09/2019 AccorHotels review

Booked through booking.com and there was no record of the booking at reception. Room was clean and tidy and was overall happy with the room. Cooked breakfast was terrible and lacked selection. Possibly the worst cooked buffet type hotel breakfast I’ve had? Was very disappointed in the breakfast. I stay monthly in New Plymouth and thought I would try somewhere different. Would possibly stay again but would eat at a cafe. Cheers Matt

friendly and welcoming

Jin Z. Families - 04/09/2019 AccorHotels review

It was fantastic with my expectations generally met with friendly staff encountered on each occasion. There is only one thing that didn't go down well although I don't regard it as a "quality" of service. My credit card was debited $100 at check-in as it was my first-time customer without membership. But it has been 2 days since I checked out and it hasn't been reimbursed back. Maybe it routinely takes more than 2 days and if it does, please ignore my note here. Thanks.

Lovely hotel

Warm welcome at front desk, easy parking, lovely room. We did unfortunately feel let down by the quality of the food at the restaurant/room service.

Good but not excellent

Customer review rating 4.6/5

Tony Couples - 03/09/2019 AccorHotels review

Easy parking and check in, friendly staff nice clean room but had odd timber slats for neighbour privacy on window. Bed was comfortable, shower worked well. Breakfast was a bit of a let down some plates were not that clean the sausages had cheese but didn’t mention that on label (I don’t like cheese) and bacon was empty and stayed that way until we were about to leave, so my cooked breakfast was scrambled egg.

Short and sweet

Customer review rating 4.6/5

Cherie Couples - 02/09/2019 AccorHotels review

We arrived and were greeted with a smile, given our room key and told that breakfast was until 11am the next day and that checkout was at 12pm (romantic package). Next morning we got to breakfast at 9.55am and told that breakfast was finishing in 5 mins, then at 11 am we received a call asking when were checking out. Other than that dinner was lovely and staff were very attentive. Room was nice too

Wonderful

Great work-related stay, which was in a great location, and allowed for a few quick walks along the shoreline. Parking was easy, room very comfortable, and service was excellent. Thank you.

Customer review rating 4.6/5

D Couples - 02/09/2019 AccorHotels review

Service was very good as was the cleanliness and comfort of the room. The food in the restaurant was below average. The dishes served did not seem to fit together and were basic, Breakfast was also average, why have so much smokey food, e.g. frankfurters, baked beans, bacon? Poached eggs were hard.
