This hotel was perfect for our needs. It was very quiet and within a short walk of everything we needed. We stated in a courtyard room but it wasn't a courtyard - just a gap between 2 buildings. There was minimal noise audible from the other rooms. The bed was comfortable. It was excellent to have the little kitchen too.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms which was wonderful for 2 couples. Everything about this hotel was good and the location in the heart of Wellington meant we could walk everywhere. We would definately stay here again

Although this hotel is in a great, handy location, it was very hard to sleep due to the continual vibrating of the hotel. Apparently caused by being attached to a parking building. Noisy crowds of pub goers in the street at all hours too! If you want a quiet, relaxing time, try somewhere else. Also, access from the hotel parking... More

Great location with a quiet nights sleep. Four of us stayed here in a two bedroom apartment. We got 6GB of free wifi which was great. The apartment was smaller than it looked on the website but OK. The king bed was comfortable. Single beds in second room were a bit narrow for adults but OK for kids. For us... More

The hotel is located close to many restaurants and bars and our room had a reasonable view from the balcony. Very modern and clean throughout with a full kitchen and large fridge/freezer. The staff were helpful and friendly. The only negative that I would comment on is the pool. It is located a long walk through a busy second floor... More

My friends and I stayed in the 2 bdrm apartment 2 years ago and had a fabulous time in a spacious and well presented suite. We loved it so much we decided to book there again, in what we thought would be the same/similar 2 bdrm apartment. Unfortunately the price had increased, the room size decreased, and customer service was... More

Thank you for your review - sorry if he size of the room was not made clear at the time of the booking. Out of the 12 two bedroom apartments we have two of them are larger than the others due their location in the building. Thanks for the comments about the friendly housekeeper she is great and does a... More

Nice new modern space. Good size with 2 bedrooms in our apartment. Nice kitchen space. Great position for our touring plans. We had a nice view out towards Mount Victoria. Lots of restaurants. Close to Courtenay Place and to Te Papa and the waterfront.

We stayed here for one night in March (and were sorely tempted to stay two, but couldn't) and loved it. We were in a one bedroom, tastefully, if trendily, decorated, the rooms were spotless, we had a very comfortable bed, and wow! Is that a washing/drying machine in the bathroom? We thought we'd have to spend our evening finding an... More

This hotel is in the heart of the Courtney St precinct - it's more modern than some of the other hotels I've stayed in while in Wellington - however, when they said there is no view from the one bedroom apartments at the back of the building - I didn't think I'd be literally in the car park - our...

Thank you for your review - we are close to the building next door. The upper floors cannot see the car park. However we always recommend the City View rooms if a view is on the list of must haves. Thanks again. We hope to see you again soon. Kind regards Tony More

Ok, this hotel wasn't THAT bad, but after staying at some very nice places in Taupo and the Cormomandel, the quality had to take a cut with location, $150/night + $20 parking doesn't get you as far in Wellington as it does in other smaller towns/cities on the north island. We had a studio apartment, it was very small but... More

Thanks for your review - the studio rooms are our smallest rooms and I would agree better for one person. Great for the corporate traveller or a quick overnight trip. If you are going to be in Wellington for a few days I'd always recommend one of our one bedroom apartments and the superior for those looking for more space.... More
