Some of my work colleagues who have stayed at the Fable in Auckland have had differing experiences upon check in and during their stay but Whisley and the team have always been extremely responsive when I’ve asked for issues to be rectified and I am hopeful that this situation remains.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. The room is alright. Some noises as Queen Street is the main shopping place. Getting around to places- shopping , food and Viaduct or weta caves are very near. Very convenient place. Hot tub - so so as it is only hot tub. Breakfast gets boring as my biz trip is 7 days . Wish they have new things for people like me

It’s a rare hotel that has you in tears before you have arrived in your room.

What a terrible experience! I have stayed at the Fable in Dunedin, which was impeccable. Fable in Auckland is definitely not. I am travelling for business and the booking was made by my company, including all charges. Despite this, the check in staff insisted I pay a $300 “bond” before I could check in. I travel frequently and have never been asked to do this. I felt like I was being treated like a scumbag or criminal. It is certainly a hostile way to treat a guest on their arrival. The check in staff were adamant - to the point of rudeness - that I had to pay them this deposit and would not discuss or explain it to me. So we were off to a bad start. They gave me my room key. I asked if my room was near a lift (notoriously noisy in hotels) and was told it wasn’t - but it was the nearest room to the lift. Why fib to your guest? I couldn’t get the lift to work with my key card and I couldn’t attract the attention of the concierge so I trudged up the stairs to the fifth floor. After a long day of travelling and working and a lot of stress, I was pretty fed up and burst into tears before I even set foot in my room. A pretty awful way for a guest to feel on arrival. My “superior Queen” room is small. One of the standard lamps doesn’t work. It flickered for a while before conking out completely. There is no point trying to let a staff member know. I’m not looking forward to the rest of my 4 day stay.

The staff are doing their best, but something is clearly not working behind the scenes at Fable.

The staff are doing their best, but something is clearly not working behind the scenes at Fable. Three main problems; 1. Housekeeping are clearly overworked and underresourced. My room wasn't ready to check in until nearly 6pm. The corridor from the lift to my room looked like the scene of a toddler's birthday party - it was coverd in crumbs. I know how hard housekeeping staff work, this screams of not enough people doing the work. Please help them out. 2. My room smelled so bad I nearly checked out. To start with it smelled of air freshener, then when that worse off it smelled of damp. I checked two other rooms, they were the same. There is something very wrong with this building that the smell of damp could persist over three days. I opened the windows when I could, but every time I returned to my room I almost felt sick with the smell. This cannot be healthy. 3. There are not enough reception staff. On checkout I eventually had to abandon my room card to the concierge and walk out. You have my credit card so I'm sure you'll charge me for everything. One person on reception and a long queue of people waiting is just not ok. The fit out is lovely, the food is great, and I was far enough away from the nightclub not to hear it. But the management of this hotel are letting their staff and guests down by not getting the basics right. I won't stay again.

Dear Y8683YDemmam Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. Whilst it is disappointing to see your rating we appreciate you noting down your thoughts on us. There is always a different perspective on behind the scenes situation however as the labor market is constantly evolving its always a case of more than meets the eye. I am happy to chat further with you regarding this however I apologize that the room smelled bad which we suspect was due to the heavy rain over the weeks which has impacted drainage. We have passed this on to maintenance to investigate further. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again in the near future. Kind Regards, Whisley Ang rdm@fableuauckland.com Rooms Division Manager Fable Auckland, MGallery

Pretty hotel but that’s where it ends

bellarina_08 Friends getaway - TripAdvisor review

The Fable is so beautifully restored and has so much promise but unfortunately that’s where it ends. I wish I’d read the reviews before we booked but like many other travellers experienced , the noise from the nightclub below is just unbearable and until 4am is pretty unacceptable right next to a hotel. The service is also far below average and the facilities such as the hot tub and sauna that need to be pre-booked are underwhelming. Spa has so many broken tiles, some of which are just all lying broken at the bottom. On the plus side, the room service meals were amazing. But if you are after a peaceful stay and good night sleep, sadly this isn’t the place for you.

Dear bellarina_08 Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback. Firstly, we apologize for any inconvenience caused by the noise from the nightclub. We understand how disruptive this must have been and acknowledge that it impacted your overall experience negatively. We are actively working on finding a solution to address this issue and minimize any disturbance for our guests in the future. I would love to know more about the service being below average as you mentioned with more context if possible please. My email address is rdm@fableauckland.com and it would be great if you can further explain in order for us to improve. I apologize for the pre booking situation in the hot tub and sauna, as its exclusive use only for one party at a time. This is to ensure the exclusivity of the guests enjoying our amenities on site in the middle of Auckland CBD. Our maintenance has fixed the broken tiles, appreciate you taking the time to let us know. Thank you for your kind comments regarding the room service meals, the kitchen team is thrilled for this feedback. Once again many thanks for taking the time to share your comments, unfortunately being in the heart of CBD we do get the social noises happening around us and I apologize for the inconvenience this has caused. Thank you, Regards. Whisley Ang Rooms Division Manager Fable Auckland, MGallery
