Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Unbelievable, I had to pay twice for my room. Stayed in the end of November for one night which was already paid in January, had to pay after my stay again. Also, 50 NZD deposit was taken from my credit card and not returned until today. I reached out to the hotel via mail: guess what....no reply. This hotel gets a clear "AVOID" rating.

Review:   Efficient and simple. Nothing terrible but nothing amazing either. One plus is accessible to the Novotel mineral spa area. Unfortunately you do have to go outside and currently in end June it is near freezing to do so. Would have been better of they established some connection between the hotels that guests could use (they are connected for staff).
