The Crown Hotel Napier

We spent five nights at the Crown Hotel Napier during October 2016. This 1 bedroom apartment style located close to the water featured a pleasant outdoor deck area and the hotel is located not far from Napier center and there is a selection of cafes and restaurants close to the hotel.

Self parking was available below the hotel with lift access to the rooms on higher levels, there is a self serve laundry available and the room was clean modern and well appointed.

Harbour City Motor Inn Tauranga Motel

We could only fit in one night staying at the Harbour City Motor Inn Tauranga Motel located at 50 Wharf Street Tauranga NZ.
The Property advertises the Studio Unit at Harbour City Motor Inn as perfect for those travelling on their own or as a couple.

Each fully-equipped airconditioned room is tastefully decorated with a queen-sized bed, full kitchen facilities, bathroom and LCD TV with Sky Guest Select 50+ Channels.

Stamford Plaza Sydney Airport

We booked this hotel again as it has been good previously and we were arriving into Sydney domestic terminal late. The Stamford for us is within walking distance of the Sydney airport domestic terminal.

On arrival this time we were upgraded to a suite on one of the upper levels which was massive with a separate bedroom, a very large living area, large walking robe/dressing area and generous sized bathroom. There is another toilet near the room entrance and there is an interconnecting room door it appears.

Qantas QF566 Perth to Sydney

This was our first time in the new Qantas A330 business class seating and we found it to be very good. The compartments are private and comfortable with plenty of room. This inflight service was excellent with a good selection of food and drinks. The seats recline fully flat and there are 2 positions acceptable for take off and landing, an upright position and a slightly reclined position.

Hyatt Regency Perth

We stayed at the Hyatt Regency in Perth the night of our arrival from Hong Kong. I explicitly booked this hotel due to their late 2:00PM on a Sunday checkout offer. I had called other hotels closer to Perth airport asking if a later checkout was available and was told we would have to pay for 2 nights to obtain a late checkout. I actually called the Hyatt to check and it was confirmed that late checkout was ok. On arrival around midnight the receptionist said midday was the best she could offer but I informed her I had called to confirm 2:00PM was ok previously.

The Langham Hong Kong

What an awesome hotel is The Langham Hong Kong. We had originally booked a King Bed room and on arrival at around 9:00 in the morning the receptionist talked us into upgrading to a Club Room. They had a room ready right away which was great after an overnight flight and the room was sensational. Clean, plenty of room and well appointed. We checked out the canapes and drinks that evening and stayed there until almost 10:00PM, the service was great and very friendly.

Cathay Pacific CX382 Zurich to Hong Kong

We had arrived late into Zurich on BA712 from London Heathrow so our connection time of 1 hour and 10 minutes was reduced to less than an hour and we had to change terminals and clear another security screening.

Anyway we made it and boarded Cathay Pacific CX382 a Boeing 777 and for this flight we were located in the main business class cabin in the center two seats row 18 being 18D and 18G. Leaving Zurich at 1:30 PM and arriving in Hong Kong the next morning at 7:05 AM the meals were lunch and breakfast with snacks available in between if desired.
