Reviewed 9 October 2016

I hadn't been in Wellington for years, so I based my choice on location and a couple of reviews. Not unhappy at all! We took a two bedroom apartment between the two of us to save some money. The layout of the room really worked, and having the kitchen and the laundry would have made a longer trip an absolute...

A very spacious apartment with great facilities, everything you could need for a long or short stay. Main bedroom facing the street a bit noisy, if you don't like noise ask for a rear room. Kitchen well equipped so didn't try their breakfast.

Blenheim, New Zealand
Reviewed 6 October 2016

Decent location buy, poor layout for taxi/uber puck up & drop off. Incompetent staff at front desk made check in & luggage retrieval very frustrating. Room dated & second bedroom like sleeping in an indoor fish bowl with no windows. Bedding was however very nice & the pillow service an unexpected , welcome addition to an average stay.

Four friends and I just spent a girls weekend away at this hotel and booked a two bedroom apartment. The room was ideal for our needs with well-equipped kitchen facilities, lovely furniture in the lounge and very comfortable beds. The suite was big enough for all of us. In addition, the hotel has an entrance onto Lambton Quay, right in...

Make sure you have a credit card when you check in a debit card won't suffice and it's not mentioned anywhere on the booking sites that we could find. Check out was busy and needed more staff on or different payment options

The hotel location is good and a reasonable price. The staff are great. The inclusive breakfast was good, but no hot options. The rooms are in need of a modern paint job. The windows in our room 509 do not close ,so the noise of an air conditioning unit nearby was constant all night. The main bed room and the...

Perfect for what we wanted, loved the central location. Staff all surfer polite and helpful. Room was good and only suggestion for future maybe upgrade window to double glaze to reduce noise off Lambton Quay.

Customer service excellent. Parking was awkward but we managed (with a van). Situated in a great central spot. We stayed with friends in a 2 bdrm unit which was nice, however the rooms are starting to get a little dated. We would stay here again at the right price.
