Great experience, the rooms and amenities were well suitable for a sports groups. The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating for any extra items we required for a group. The pool, level 2 meeting area were ideal.

Excellent stay. The hotel was clean and tidy. The staff let us have the room early which was great. Great to have the use of the pool and gym. The location was very handy. The only area that was disappointing was that the room was not serviced due to COVID.

Located a few hundred meters from the heart of everything this hotel represents great value for money. The beds are incredibly comfy and the room looked really fresh, as though it may have been recently refurbed. We booked a Harbour View room which was lovely. Staff were great from start to finish. Only complaint was the air con was difficult to operate and quite loud, but otherwise we had a great stay and would recommend.

The bed was fantastic, so was the buffet breakfast, pool & spa as well as the staff. However little things like no bathrobes, poor tv (remote issues, batteries were fine) and no hotel information pack made me take away a star. Carpet in the hallway and general decor also looked aged.

Location was great, right by the railway station and within easy walking distance of the wharf, Lambton Quay and Wellington CBD. Room was very sunny, clean and spacious. Had a swimming pool and spa/sauna although we didn't use them.

Family stay in a 1 bedroom suite on level 16. Fantastic position with two balconies and views of the harbour. Room was spacious and well-equipped. Bathroom appears to have been renovated. Lots of space. Main bed was very comfortable. Sofa bed less so but set-up works well for families. Only criticism was the heating unit - a bit loud when it runs. The swimming pool is excellent. Good length and is accompanied by a spa, sauna, gym, and changing facilities. Location of the hotel is also excellent. Easy access to everything especially waterfront amenities. The staff also deserve praise. Great service and was very professional dealing with a tough guest next to us. Would consider staying again in the future.

Stayed twice recently and issues both times. Room was not clean, stains on the chairs in the room. I stayed 2 nights and the room was not serviced during my stay. Had dinner in the restaurant and it was ok. Reception and staff were very friendly, but the quality standards have dropped.
