We visited to watch the All Blacks. Easily able to find a seat at game time. Place did fill up. Service was okay, not great. Drink was empty for quite awhile and never asked about refilling it.

Enjoyed the sticky date pudding.

We stayed here for 4 nights. The room was adequate, with 1 king and 1 single bed, though not much room for anything else. The bathroom was average. Free breakfast was advertised on the booking site but we only discovered it on the second day - on a table in the hallway - muesli, tinned peaches, a few pieces of fruit, milk, no bowls and 1 spoon! Disappointing. The hotel's bar and restaurant were first class, as measured by packed houses each night. We enjoyed a couple of great meals there. Think I'll try somewhere else next time I'm in Wellington.

We wanted clean, comfortable, economical, close to our appointment locations, and good food. This hotel is spotlessly clean, very comfortable, 2 minutes walk from our dentist and the restaurant was fabulous.

We didnt have an over-abundance of fancy decor, acres of space in the bedroom and bathroom or any un-needed luxuries. (nice for a holiday but not needed this trip. We had a good value economy room which was exactly what we wanted

We had lovely, friendly and helpful staff, free on site parking (a miracle in Wellington) continental breakfast supplied free of charge and the most superb dinner - our favourite treat, lambs fry and bacon with mashed potatoes and gravy. Totally 5 star. We have eaten here before, and it was just as good then.

Definately recommended for a trip to Wellington - it's on Tinakori Rd, and all of Wellington is a very brief drive away - unless you take the wrong turn and wind up in a confusing mass of one way roads as we did once. We can recommend the Men's Barber across the road too.

Room Tip: Road noise with window open but silent when closed, beware of the stairs if old and decrepit like me

Free parking is a huge bonus! As other reviews mention, rooms are dated with a bit of a musty smell, and the TV inside the rooms is the old CRT style (haven't seen one of them in a while!) but hey you do get free Sky TV on it. I had a room with a spa; spa was great as was the giant bathroom. Pub downstairs was also decent and had great food - some nights were a little loud for sleeping with the pub noise though.

We had half a night here as left early for the 3.30 am ferry.
Big decider for us was the free off street parking- not an easy find in Wellington.
Warm, comfortable rooms. We will be back if we need to overnight in the capital again.
