This hotel is well located, in one direction you have the cafe/restaurant area with Te Papa a bit further, the other way are the downtown shops and cable car. The hotel isn't new but the floor we were on (10th) was freshly renovated, the room was spotless, small but clean bathroom, tidy kitchen area, washing machine/dryer, small wardrobe with sufficient...

Arrived around 20:45 on a Saturday, expected to have to use the lock box to access a key however reception was still open and we were warmly welcomed. Good night's sleep, not aware of any noise outside. Clean bathroom with nice shower gel!

This one bedroom apartment is well appointed. The bathroom is small but functional and leaves more room for the bedroom & lounge/kitchen area. The king size bed was so comfy. It would have been nice to have had some air con or a ceiling fan as it was a bit warm. I was amazed at the lack of noise from...

It's located bang in the middle of the city so it's very close to many bus stops and shopping malls. You can walk to the botanic garden from the hotel (it's all uphill though :)). It is easily reachable from the Airport by Super shuttle. When I reached the hotel, the reception was closed, but there was a mail communication...

We are glad you enjoyed the apartment and our after hour’s service was easy and stress free. The location is very central and we have a fair few uphill walks in Wellington but the other way to get to the botanical gardens is taking the cable car, the reception team are more then happy to give directions or book Wellington...

Accommodation was at a premium due to Wellington hosting the Edinburgh Military Tattoo so we were happy to find anything even though it was more than we'd usually pay for one night. Checking in went ok, except part of their advertising says they have parking available for $25 a day. but when we asked only 2 day parking cards were...

We are sorry to hear the location seems to be the highlight and downfall for your stay. For a inner city property the feedback is generally positive regarding the noise you hear in the apartments. We do have an arrangement with Wilsons parking they provide us with parking passes which are needed to enter the parking building with, a 24...

I spent two nights at this place last week. The room was simple, but well-designed and appointed. I didn't use any of the kitchen stuff, but all of it seemed there. There is even a combo washer/dryer in the bathroom. I did two loads and it worked just fine. The bed was comfortable.The desk staff were uniformly nice and helpful....

Booked this hotel over the phone. We were not told that this was a non serviced room. We could have paid the same amount and gone elsewhere and had our room serviced. Therefore on our return the 2nd night we had to ring up afterhours reception to ask for toilet paper and soap. They said it would be delivered in...

I've stayed here before and chose it because of that. We missed the ferry, oops. So why not enjoy an evening in beautiful Wellington. They had a room. When I went to check out they charged $45 for the extra bed for our three year old! Plus the room was $90 more than usual. Won't be back. It's good as...

We are sorry to hear you were disappointed, as explained when you made the booking our rates are all based on availability and it was incredibly limited availability due to being last minute. The accommodation rate, rollaway charge and parking charges were all explained to you before the booking was made.
