We stayed at one of the City Cottages for 19 nights. Our stay was incredible. Could not have asked for better accommodations or location. The cottage is situated at the north end of Cuba Street on a small lane with other historic cottages. Cuba Street has a great vibe with fantastic restaurants, bars, markets and buskers. You can walk to... More

The cottages are right off Cuba street - super easy to get around town from there. Inside the cottage was spotless, had everything you need (nice bathroom, dishwasher, self catering, new stove, washer-dryer), and was nicely decorated. There was new carpet in most of it but lovely polished wood floors in the kitchen and bathroom. It was open plan except... More

A wonderful property that exceeded our expectations in terms of size, location & amenities. The property is very spacious with a separate master bedroom, large double futon bed in the spacious kitchen & dining area plus a modern large bathroom with a groovy round shower!! Highly recommended. Close, free & convenient city parking a real plus!

Loved this little cottage right in the heart of Wellington. Comfy beds (even the futon), fluffy towels and excellent shower. Owner was very easy to communicate with, all went smoothly. Highly recommend.

Lovely well appointed cosy cottage within a minute's walk to good food and beverage. Free parking for 1 vehicle and easy access to motorways and the Cook Strait ferries. The location and comfortable roomy cottage will be our preferred stay next time we visit Wellington.

I have stayed in both 5 and 7 Tonks Grove and cannot fault either of the cottages. I travel regularly for business and it is really nice to find a cottage set up with everything you need to feel right at home. From the choice of instant or 'proper' coffee, through to the washer/dryer combo, and the super comfy bed,... More

Very well appointed - everything you need - really great to have a washing machine after a few days of travelling. Location is great - walking distance to the museum, shops, and multiple restaurants. Very private and quiet despite being located in a busy little neighbourhood

The room and location is great. We were not emailed the door code and my husband was abused when he phoned to explain we couldn't get in and was hung up on. Jeff then phoned and again said we would have received an email. I checked back and we did not receive any email from City Cottages. The cottages are... More

We loved our stay at the city cottages. Easy to drive to. Own allocated parking. Central location just off Cuba street. Clean, modern with good beds. Close to war memorial. Has a kitchenette if you want to make your own breakfast but with good cafes like Fidel nearby you may choose to try these out instead.

Thanks for a great review. So pleased you tried Fidel's - amazing food and a 'cool Cuba Street' vibe. Worth checking out their outdoor heated seats on a cool evening with a nice glass of wine! More
