I am writing this from the comfort from my three bed dorm room bed before I leave and the buzz of my next stop distracts me so I do not get a chance to tell you what a smashing place I thought Gourmet Stay was. Single traveler wanting something good value for money, central, off the track of your knees... More

We stayed 7 nights at gourmet stay and we really enjoyed it. The hotel is quaint and very clean. We were worried about a shared bathroom but it was actually a really nice bathroom and was kept clean all the time. The only negative thing id say is that there wasn't a toilet brush so sometimes it was a little... More

We stayed in Room 3 at this delightful accommodation which was located very close to Cuba street. We travelled with a 2 year old toddler and she loved the extra large sized rooms compared to the tiny capsules you usually get at hotels. The room was also very very clean and equipped with cutleries, plates, bowls, fridge and microwave. There... More

Treated ourselves to the Penthouse with Hot Tub for the last 2 days of our NZ adventure. Small room, large balcony, but the memory of enjoying Fireworks Night on a cold Spring evening in the tub will linger for a long time. Lack of parking was a bit aggravating, especially with Wellington being do-able on foot, and the street was... More

The location is very central and you can walk all over Wellington from there. I stayed in a dorm room. There were three beds and it was a shared bathroom. The room was spotless. Super comfortable and quiet. Just what I needed. Staff are helpful kind and polite. There are tips about where to eat on a board as you... More

Very pleasant staff & was just what I needed. Bed sheets and room cleaned daily & wifi is super fast. Also the cafe is delicious. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Male member of staff even went out of his way to point me in the right direction on the map to the shops etc. 5 mins walk from city centre

We stayed at the Gourmet Stay for the Labour weekend. We chose the double bedroom with kitchen and ensuite bathroom. The room was small but clean and tidy. The kitchen didn't have a stove to cook but offered a microwave, a kettle and everything you need to make breakfast. The bathroom was a "wet area" type : the entire floor... More

We stayed here two nights. From the neighborhood which looks industrial, you would not except this cozy cafe and clean modern rooms, it was a pleasant surprise. The rooms are modern and simple. My only criticism is that the pillows were almost flat they were not much use, and there was no alarm clock. However, whenever we rang the owner... More

Cheap hotel that is great value. Small and quirky rooms but very clean and service is friendly. Well located within the city area and walking distance form all the major sites and restaurants. Fabulous recommendations on the communal blackboard, indicating local restaurants that were well worth the venture.

I found this little gem online as I departed the ferry. Mark was amazing. Booking was fast and efficient -as I told him I only had minutes to spare as my hire car was due back by close of day. Clean, quiet and a nice sleep on the ground floor. (Can't comment on stairs) While not open to trade as... More
