Comfy bed and great cleaning staff! The laundry facilities were amazing and a great kitchen. Good location although it was a bit hard to find at first. The blond girl in the reception is kinda rude and not very willing to help, but that was pretty much the only bad thing.

Thanks for your feedback, we are so happy you enjoyed your stay. Being the blonde staff member you've mentioned, I do recall speaking to you regarding the directions and certainly never meant to offend. The leaflet we provide is to assist with the directions for the short cut if guests choose to use this method into the main city centre....

We stayed for 3 nights at the Gilmer Apartments and we're surprised by how lovely and roomy it was. We had a two bedroom apartment and there was ample living space, with adequately sized double bedrooms. The shower in the bathroom was lovely and we also had a washer/dryer which was useful as we were in New Zealand for three...

two night stay in a top floor apartment. Room had plenty of room but was a bit noisy from air con(?) above room. Others staying on the same floor didnt seem to have the same issue so maybe it was directly above my room (311). Room had all the things required, although shower was a bit small. Would stay again.

For the money I paid it was an exceptional room. There was a full kitchen, a washing machine and the bathroom had quality toiletries. The environment is fairly quiet as the street is mainly the car park entries of office buildings. It is interesting to get to as the way you are directed is through the James Cook Arcade, up...

Thank you for your feedback and we're happy you enjoyed your stay. The James Cook Hotel elevator short cut is given as an option for those guests who prefer this other than the Plimmer steps however it is purely up the guest which route they are more comfortable taking. Thanks again and we hope to see you again in the...

The room is a little dated, but our room was spacious and the location and value were too good to be beat. We enjoyed our two night stay here. We had a laundry machine in our unit which was really convenient.

We stayed here for 2 nights over the Wellington Sevens weekend. The hotel did not seem overly busy and was nice and quiet. Easy access off Lambton Quay through the James Cook arcade. Even though the hotel is up a small hill, it is only a 1 minute walk after exiting the elevator from LQ. The ladies on reception when...

With a midnight arrival it was a pleasure to access the apartment hassle free and settle down for some rest after a long travel day. The apartment was immaculate with a high standard of all round service.

Stayed here for a night before catching the ferry to South Island. Nothing wrong with it, hot shower, working kitchenette, central location, good wifi, adequate value for money. 24 hours access. But as it is an apartment block, it all felt a bit soulless.

We had a one night stay at Gilmer Apartments and had a pleasant stay. It is out of the way slightly, but the directions provided in the email were very good and we didn't get lost at all!
