Take nothing away from the staff and their service, they were brilliant and helpful and nice. Everything was quick and easy. However, the hotel itself is old and dated. Breakfast was extremely dissapointing. No cooked options, cereal from a box and generally low quality options available. For the price you pay, this was a rip-off. If you aren't worried about...

We only stayed there for one night so there is a lot of things I cannot comment on but for that one night we were there, we were very pleased with the hotel. We got upgraded to a bigger apartment on arrival so obviously we were pleasantly surprised. The kitchen area was a bit on the smaller side but otherwise,... More

Location is perfect. Right in the middle of Wellington and on Lambton Quay where you can take all the buses and the cable car. Central train station is a 10 min walk and less than 5 min to the Waterfront. Room was big, very comfortable and with all the necessary amenities for a family of 4 adults and 1 baby.... More

Place was average at best. Bed was on wheels, so if you set up in bed to read, the bed would roll away from the wall. The room was very though. Carpet in room and lobby had rolls in it that gave the place a sloppy dirty look. Parking options were not good. But I will have to say the... More

Had a good stay here our 2 bedroom apartment was very comfortable and the staff on check in were very friendly right in the middle of the main shopping area and so close to all the dining options around the harbor I would happily stay here again

Central location and quiet to sleep. Bed is comfortable and I was put in a suite so very spacious but at the same time the bathroom is cramped so I don't understand the old constructions or designs! Feels stuffy as you can't open any windows and have to rely on aircon or heater.

A great little place that is close to everything and has great rooms. Only downside was a booking error - but that *eventually* got resolved. There was plenty of choice of things to do and places to eat locally.
