Fantastic location with only a small walk away from Te Papa museum and the waterfront. We only stayed one night and booked due to close proximity to the Ferry, but will book for longer next time. We had a 1 bedroom unit which had a balcony over looking the harbour. Room was spacious and clean and beds were comfy. Staff went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. Pool was out of order at time but they offered free entry into a pool facility near by. Breakfast had a great variety and the chef was willing to help out with any special requests. Thank you for a great stay.

We stayed her for 2 nights. We had a lovely room with free tea and coffee. There was a mini bar fridge in the room too. Free wi-fi in our room was good. There was a lot of choice for breakfast. The only negative I can think of was the parking, the parking was easy but cost $30 per night. If we visited New Zealand again we would definitely stay here again.

Our last journey leg was 4 nights at this hotel. Thank goodness the bed was just to our liking; the feeling of sleeping on a cloud. We were fortunate to have top floor and corner building room with room overlooking the bay. The location is great as many other reviewers attest. We used the valet at this was good for us. Kitchenette functional and we used it as was easy to get breaky food close by. But we did get coffee at the restaurant for our room. Overall a great stay compared to staying in business area when I go for work.

This is a typical large chain hotel. I've stayed in hundreds of this type of hotel and they're basically all the same, which can be good as you know what to expect.

This hotel has an added advantage though, as it is very well located. Many rooms have views over the harbour and it is just a short pleasant stroll to the town centre.

Breakfast was of the buffet variety. Adequate, but nothing special.

I understand that valet parking is available, but I parked at a meter across the road, free from 18:00 to 08:00 and then reasonably priced.

If you are calling into Wellington, New Zealand this a wonderful hotel for you to consider. From the moment we arrived and unloaded our families 8 suitcases we were very well looked after. Great rooms overlooking the Harbour and rooms very spacious and spotless.
The restaurant offers great food and The New Zealand Breakfast superb. Check out was easy and definitely worth staying here if you are planning a visit to Wellington. I may quickly add just a short walk from the Town Centre an. Excellent Museum.
