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

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

This motel was very close to everything we needed and enjoyed catching up with my son who lives very close by, however the room was tidy but needed some tidying up as the sink in the bathroom had a big crack and was just patched up, carpets quite worn, the bed was ok but could have done with a newer...

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. If you arrive later in the evening there is always free... More

We selected this hotel after getting a discount voucher - probably would only stay there again if we could get the same discount. The front staff were very friendly and helpful. The apartment was roomy and clean. It was great having a seperate bedroom. The location was very central to everything. On the other side, the bed had a slumpy... More

Thank you for your review. We'll take a look at that bed and pillows we have just has some new pillows arrive this week and will put a priority on that room. We do periodically run some great online specials so keep an eye out. It is always worth upgrading to a City View room the outlook is much better.... More

Clean, spacious, comfortable with a fully equipped kitchen and laundry facilities in the bathroom. Everything a business traveller needs. Great thing is the location, 2 minutes walk away from shops, restaurants, bars and cafés. There are plenty of attractions such as the national museum Te Papa, the Cuba mall, the cable cart and government grounds within a walking distance.
