It was a steal getting a one room apartment upgrade and the experience was well worth it. The car parking is a bit awkward but that is the only failing in my stay. There is no room service facility (but that is coming soon) but when you realise that you are right beside the Lone Star- who do meals to... More

Thank you Hanna H Our car park is an adventure, we have instructions on the car park voucher to help the weary travellers. We hope to have our Restaurant up and running later this year so watch this space. If you have an awesome name let us know we are looking for something catchy. More

We stayed here for 2 nights in Feb 2014. The location of this hotel is very central in Wellington and the room was really great. It was a very complete kitchen/studio with a large separate bathroom. The room was very clean and had a very comfortable bed. However we stayed on a Saturday night and the street is obviously in... More

Thank you Antonia-enRudolf Being close to the entertainment you do get a wee bit of traffic on the street. We recommend our rooms on the back of the hotel for those that are light sleepers at the weekends. More

Writing this review as I am currently staying here for the first time. Usually an Accor fan but they have got too pricey in Wellington. Rooms are modern, service outstanding (especially John on the front desk) and the one bedroom units have everything you need for a short or long stay, even a washing machine! I am a VERY fussy...

As a single female on a business trip I wouldn't stay here again. I arrived in the evening with a rental car, I had to park this myself in the basement of the car park building next door. I had to walk through a concrete corridor and up flights of stairs to get back to hotel. I didn't feel safe!... More

Thank you for your comments. We have a selection of channels at the hotel with 5 sky and 3 national channels available. We will check the rooms to ensure they are all being received. The car parking is in a low traffic area as it is separate to the public parking area. We have not had any safety concerns before,... More

A great location for doing Touristy things, and the room itself was fantastic. Our main gripes were: robotic reception staff (one in particular, the rest were nice enough); having to pay $20 per day for parking, only to find we could have got a better weekend rate in the same carpark if we hadn't gone through the hotel; having to...

My three girlfriends and I stayed here a couple of weekends ago in one of the penthouse suites which was very nice except for the really smelly fridge, it looked clean but honestly the smell that came out everytime you opened the door was nasty. And the other thing was the lack of seating, the suite slept 4 people but... More

Thank you for your comments Keri K Housekeeping have been through all the Penthouse fridges to ensure they are smelling fresh. I have had a word to our reception staff about checking that guests with cars have their key with them for departure. Sounds like you had a good weekend. We are perfectly placed for Wellingtons entertainment district. Look forward... More

Huge lounge room, with separate bathroom/ bedroom. Views not great, but could see hills and cant expect too much, inner city. Rooms clean and comfortable bed. Quiet, as on 3rd floor. Maybe recently refurbished, as everything appeared new? A better room than our previous stay.

I am currently staying at this hotel. I have barely slept as it is so noisey. I'm normally a very heavy sleeper but due to some random buzzing sound in the room and the thiness of the walls and glass I havnt slept since I arrived. The carpets are filthy, there is dirty black finger marks on the walls and... More

Right in the middle of the city. We were coming in from Auckland for one night and arrived at 10 in the morning. They let us check in early which we were so grateful for. Really helpful front desk and well appointed clean rooms. Beds were comfortable too.
