We had a fantastic time in Wellington and the hotel is in a great location. Would reccomend it to anyone as it is close to some lovely restaurants and bars. However, the bed having the consistency of concrete making it hard to get a good night sleep.

Stayed here one night for 4 Nations League final. We were upgraded on arrival to a 2 bedroom apartment with a city view. Easy walk to the entertainment district and a great location. Is a bit noisy at night but that's par for the course in inner city apartments. We will stay here again.

The hotel was a really good find - clean, tidy and quiet. The apartments were well equipped and the hotel was just across the road from Moore Wilsons (supermarket). It was also very close to a number of good restaurants. Found the hotel was great value for a business trip and will definitely stay again.

Lets start by saying that this is a really modern apartmet hotel. All is spik and span, and the staff know what they are doing. The hotel has all you need, and maybe somemore. But, you could drive past it three times and still not see it. There is actulaay two "parking" bays outside the hotel so that you can... More

Hello Any Thanks for your comments. We are modern and have everything you need if you're planning to stay for a few days. Driving in Wellington in general can be fun with the one way system. When describing our location we often say we are directly opposite Harvey Norman they are a bit of a landmark on the street. Thanks... More

Stayed here for the first time. Firstly bed was comfortable but there isn't any space for clothes to be unpacked. There is a wardrobe but it is filled with ironing board and clothes airer. So you have to be prepared to live out of a case. Couch in suite style room was white and dirty and very very hard to... More

Thank you for your feedback. We have been flat out cleaning carpet recently so I'm sure that has been addressed and I have discussed the cleaning of the sofa with our housekeeping. The hotel has two views and I would always recommend the city view rooms if your in town on holiday. Regards Tony More

We went on a road trip as a group of friends. It was a long drive, and we were very glad to find that Distinction was all that we were expecting on arrival. Room was clean and well set up. It was close to everything we required, including some amazing places on Tory Street itself. Highly recommend a city facing... More

I have stayed here before, we stayed this time in a studio apartment, the room was clean we had all the things we needed in the room including a washing machine. The only trouble was the bed was very hard as it had no mattress topper on it. The location is so good we walked into Courtney place which was... More

Thanks for your comments Jodie We are replacing some of the beds hopefully before the end of the year. The studios dont generally have a washer so if you want to be sure of having one ensure you book a 1 bedroom or higher grade room. Hope we see you again soon. Regards Tony More

We stayed with a GrabOne voucher for 3nights while visiting our daughter who is at university. We had a one bedroom unit on level 7 which looked out into a bedroom at the adjoining apartment block. We knew we wouldn't have a view for the price we paid so that wasn't an issue. The unit was warm, quiet, dark when... More

Thanks for your comments Angala Well take a look at that vanity in the bathroom, we are not aware of any cracked one but will get that fixed if there is. $20 for parking at a hotel in the Central City is similar pricing to other hotels in Wellington.
