Auckland, New Zealand... there is definitely a difference between Australia and New Zealand. I can't explain it well except to say that Australia felt "more British" than New Zealand.
We LOVED our hotel room here. It was a former department store, and very roomy and comfortable. I wanted to stay and live there for a while.. there was even a kitchen, with stove, dishwasher, refrigerator and sink!
