A perfect location for a 'girls shopping' trip. Easy walking distance to shops, food, entertainment, etc. Extremely neat & tidy with everything you need in a 'home from home'. Shower was heavenly (super powerful) and great set up with the sliding door/wall for privacy in the bedroom. Although just off Cuba Street, it was very quiet over night and the... More

The location of this cottage is fantastic being within walking distance to may sites and great restaurants. It was quiet and very comfortable with everything we needed for a family with young children.

Love being independent and tired of paying overinflated city hotel room rates - then this place is for you.We were very pleased with our stay here. The cottage was spotless. It had enough to make it a home away from home. There was a kitchenette with two small hotplates, a microwave, a bar fridge, a dishwasher, crockery, cutlery pots and... More

As heritage-listed buildings we are not able to extend the building, which means we need to be thoughtful in how we use the inside space. The large sliding door between the... More

Spotlessly clean and tidy, tastefully decorated, and perfectly located in the coolest part of town. Stand-alone "home" in a historic setting with its own car park. Perfect! Have recommended to our friends, and now you.

I chose City Cottages for our trip to Wellington rather than a hotel. It wastThe perfect location for exploring Wellington on foot. Laundry and free parking a definite plus. Private. Very clean and comfortable. Couldn't have been happier with our stay.
