This accommodation is right in the heart of Wellington and has easy access to all the important attractions and to great restaurants and shopping. It includes a small kitchen, as well as a washer-dryer in the unit. I also got a great price on it, although without any right to cancel. Everything was very clean and comfortable. If there is...

Gilmer apartment Hotel is a great place to stay, centrally located and once you are told the way to get to Lampton Quay, getting around Central Wellington is a dream. Our room was clean and comfortable with all the amenities that you need. The front reception staff were great and very helpful,so we will be staying there again on our...

Only being in Wellington for a couple of days before heading to the South Island, we were looking for something convenient to everything in the center of Wellington, but wanted something that was quiet and allow us to recharge from our time on the North Island. Gilmer was the perfect choice. Very quiet dead end street location yet only a...

Located in a small side street just down from the Terrace behind the James Cook, this small apartment hotel is a great place to stay in Wellington. The rooms are small (the double studios at least) but well appointed. There is parking on site if requested. Only negative is the slightly officious signs about not damaging or staining anything.

Stayed for three nights in a well equipped and comfortable room on the second floor. The location, although down a slightly shabby street, is conveniently central, yet quiet. No problems at all with our very late arrival, as the key code details for access supplied in advance via email, worked just fine. Well serviced with attentive staff, the only real...

Thank you for your feedback, we are so happy you enjoyed your stay. The bathroom fans do make a hum but luckily they are only required to be in use when the shower is in use. Thanks again and all the best for your future travels.

Kelly, was a delightful hostess when we arrived to check-in early. She was extremely helpful and went above and beyond to welcome us. Wonderful start to our Wellington visit. The apartment is lovely! Centrally located and great amenities, loving being in the Capital.

Nice clean, modern, new rooms. No air conditioning, so with windows open at night it is a little noisy. Staff were very friendly. If you have a car, make sure to book a car park with the hotel. The public car park next door is very expensive.

Thank you for your feedback and we are so happy you enjoyed your stay with us. We have fans provided in the rooms and will make sure we let guests know about these upon check in to keep the rooms cool in these warm Wellington days we've been having. Thanks again for your feedback.

Stayed 3 nights in a one bedroom apartment. Shared a room with my work mate so we left the bedroom door open and it gave us privacy between the two double beds. Best points were quiet location, no street noise, 5 min access to shopping street Lampton Quay. Clean room. Lovely bedding and beds. Improvements could be lamp in main...

The room itself is great with your own washer in room. The washer has a drying feature but doesn't dry well. Clean and good size room. The only negative is that you have to walk through a parking garage and elevator to get to anything. Once you do it, it's easy. The wifi is excellent for my work on the...

Thank you for your feedback and we're so happy you've enjoyed your stay. The dryers work best with small loads as when they are piled up they can take some time to dry however we also offer a commercial dryer also within the property. We do have alternative options to walk to the city centre including the Plimmer steps however...
