The cottage exceeded our expectations! I have nothing negative to say about this location - only positives! Excellent location, right off Cuba street, but still quiet. Free Wi-Fi and free parking. Very clean! Outdoor sitting area. Even included free laundry facilities, which was most helpful! I would highly recommend you stay at the cottages during your visit. Great for both... More

My wife and I stayed here late Feb for a night for a double celebration. Really handy to the vibrant Cuba quarter of the CBD. For us it was a five minute walk to Logan Brown - hence why we stayed here. Well presented and very well restored cottages. Very tidy and not a bad nights sleep despite it being... More

This is an excellent cottage right in the heart of Wellington. with almost everywhere you would want to go being walkable. The cottage is clean and spacious, has excellent internet and its own private parking spot. There are any number of restaurants and bars within a 5 minute walk. We would have no problem recommending this property to other travelers... More

Very nicely renovated cottage with full kitchen - and a laundry: much appreciated after staying in hotels for 10 days. Absolutely right in the city centre on Cuba Street with a dedicated car parking space, which was a massive bonus. Easy walk to loads of restaurants and bars. Recommended for those who want to be very central but perhaps bring... More

Uniquely-styled, comfortable, well-equipped, self-catering accommodation that is ideally situated within walking distance of most of the main city sights and Cuba Street's cosmopolitan restaurants. Loved the hassle-free booking in system and on-site parking. Only down side was the lack of air conditioning.

Thanks for your great review. To be honest you are first person to ever suggest air conditioning! Sadly Wellington weather is not usually so good but this year we have had a few hot days. We now have fans in the room in case we get another heatwave (unlikely)! More

We stayed from 27th December '14 to 4th January '15 & we were so pleased with the cottage. Central location within walking distance to shops, cafes and bars. Wifi and parking space were great extras for the price and hard to find elsewhere in Wellington. The cottage had everything we needed for the week long stay.

We spent 5 nights at City Cottages in mid December and rate the quality of the accommodation & convenience very highly. Such a smart concept - historic cottages in the heart of one of Wellington's most vibrant areas, with really thoughtful, modern features, off street parking & even a charming courtyard garden! We happened to bump into the owner when... More
