Stayed here overnight, sharing a twin room, compact but all amenities that we needed were there, crisp sheets, comfortable beds, good pillows (so hard to find in a hotel, even 5 star), decent bathroom. Speedy room service, plenty on offer for breakfast. The bar looked welcoming though we didn't use it; with sun in the morning, it served as a... More

Found the room to be smaller then the rooms in Singapore, not much room if you have two suitcases, found the bed really uncomfortable and the pillows sandwiched thin linen average. Breakfast, was average food only lukewarm why is it that cold cuts are not on ice? recipe for disaster. Paying for parking is not on. Place is stating to... More

We recently spent three days at the Kingsgate hotel in Wellington and found it to be a very pleasant place to stay ... Yes it is an older style hotel but was clean and tidy with a very comfortable bed ... The location just behind parliament buildings was within easy walking distance from the city centre and very close to... More

I stay here often due to meetings arranged in Wellington. I would not stay here if I had a choice. The last stay I went to their restaurant with a group of 4 others. It was less than half full and we waited 70 mins after our order before complaining to the manager who came to us, apologised and then... More

Hotel was clean and tidy, but is getting very tired and in desperate need of a revamp. Bed was one of the worst I have experienced and there was continual noise from the elevators and service ducts in my room. Reasonable walk to get down to the Wellington waterfront. Unfortunately the restaurant and bar are also very average.

Dear Mike C, Thank you for your feedback on Tripadvisor and apologies that the level of service was not to its usual level. With regards to beds the hotel continually replaces beds and has replaced more than half in the last two years. If you could let me know what room you were in this would assist in addressing your...

The guy who checked us in was very efficient. The girl (Amy) who checked us out was abrupt, no smiles, and did not seem interested in us at all. The shower was a bit mouldy in the corners, but other areas of the room were clean and tidy (the fridge could of done with a clean too). Paid for parking,... More

Dear Uniquelady01, Thank you for your feedback on Tripadvisor. We are glad you enjoyed your stay. With regards to your comments about the cost of parking and late checkout.

Close to the Westpac Stadium, Parliament and Government Department Buildings and the CBD A great location if you are attending an event at the Westpac Stadium. Clean and tidy rooms and friendly, helpful staff.Note that there is an additional fee for parking.
