Truth - I am not a big city person. But for all I saw, I would say that Gourmet Stay is pretty terrific. Breakfast is simple, and tasty. Holly really was quite kind, and put up with my old guy nerves, graciously (Kudos). It is quite near House of Dumplings, a tiny oasis of ethical folks (Cheers Melissa and Vicky)...

Gourmet Stay has the friendliest staff you could imagine. They are only available until 19:00. For late arrivers such as myself arrangements are made so they can get the key to enter their room. The rooms are nice and superclean, but Spartan in their accomodation. It was quite a shock after coming from a rather luxurious hotel in Auckland. Breakfast...

This was our 2nd time staying and I was more impressed than the last time. The room we had included a kitchenette - such a simple design but felt spacious and was very comfortable and private. It is an awesome little place to stay. Central location, clean, comfortable, and the continental style breakfast was yummy and had lots of healthy...

Enormous two bedroom apartment accommodated our family and allowed us to entertain friends to celebrate university graduation. All facilities were available and staff were helpful and friendly. Great location.

We found the Gourmet hotel, just that! Comfort, care & closeness to all the main action of Wellington. A free car park was available just outside the front door. The breakfast set is up for the day. Fresh, varied, tasty self service.

This was a wonderful place to stay for a few days while I attended a course. I was upgraded to a fabulous room with its own deck and spa. It was clean, nicely furnished and had everything I would want in a hotel room. Reception area and dining room have a welcoming and warm vibe. Easy to walk most places...

We booked for 1 night. On trip advisor, it says that the parking car is free, when we came, the receptionist told us to pay 20 dollars extra. Super expensive. The room was ok but for this price (150 dollars, one night, breakfast plus parking), we had a share bathroom. It doesn't worth the price sorry. As for the breakfast,...

Dear 342laura87 Thank you for the information listed on Trip Advisor.
