The only good points: friendly Frontline staff and a comfy bed. Our room was filthy. Stain on our sheets, stains and hair on our pillows, urine everywhere on the toilet, soap scum in the shower, dirt in the carpet... I could go on. Whomever they employ to clean should be fired! Apart from that I would almost state the room... More

Room was pretty spartan. Had two single beds. They felt like they were mounted on springs. Seemed to sway precariously when you sat on them and were very narrow. Once we fell asleep, though, they seemed to work. Nice shower. Car park seemed to have been designed by a demented elf, and the hotel sold more tickets for parking than... More

Easy to find at the nortthern end of the city shopping area, new word just a short walk as well as atm. Free wifi in the bar/restaurant area, you will need a voucher from recption, wifi worked best in the foyer area. Had a view of the harbour which was good, the windows were dirty needed a clean

I really enjoyed my stay at the Kingsgate. The room was quiet, and very clean and tidy. The staff were friendly and helpful. The bus stops are only a 5 to 10min walk. A nearby supermarket, which was very handy too. I would definitely be happy to stay there again.

It is a very nice accommodation with lovely helpful staff. Clean and easy access to most places and very reasonable price. I recommend it highly for anyone who wants to visit Wellington. However, without air condition their heavy comforters were not the best for comfortable sleep at night. I had a little difficulty sleeping in my room even though I... More

Well-placed hotel with pleasant public areas. Sadly, the room we had was pretty poor. Very thin walls, poor furniture, generally, unkempt. Having stayed in some extremely good motels on our way to Wellington, the Kingsgate was a disappointment. The building's external finish masks the low quality bedrooms. There is ample car parking, both indoor and outdoor (for this, you pay... More

We booked through Wotif. Even with a big discount, this place was overpriced. Staff were rude, parking was expensive, room was dark and tiny and was in desperate need of an upgrade. There were no sky channels and wifi in the room was a rip (it's free in the foyer). It's been a while since I've stayed in a NZ... More

A compact room, probably best for a 1 night stay. Mostly for coach parties and work force! A clean, comfortable bed, otherwise basic facilities. Paintwork and carpet shabby. General needing a good clean. Windows filthy. Extra charge for parking, but probably cheaper and easier than street parking
