    Thanks for your review. Free parking is a rarity in Wellington - and especially important as you wont need to use your car as most places are easily walked.

    Could not find fault - perfect. The cottage was clean, homely and warm. It was in an excellent location just off of Cuba Street. Arriving and departing was trouble free. I would recommend this cottage to anyone.

    Great location. Good for small family for couple of nights. Something a bit different to the standard old hotel chain rooms. Will look at staying here again on our next visit. Bed was really comfortable and kids found sofa bed and stretcher bed comfy too.

    Hello - The cottage has very good heating. An electric wall heater, fan heater, electric blanket and heated towel rail. It is very warm. November is spring so the weather will be starting to improve too.
