Clean hotel with great ambience. Stuffed full of one persons personal art collection. A little dark in places but it all adds to the feel I suppose. Rubbish parking but space in Welly is a premium. Good room and comfy bed.

If you are sick of staying in boring cookie cutter hotels this place is for you. Really different, in a nice way. My room was a good size and clean. Breakfast was excellent. Service was fuss free and friendly. Highly recommend.

Outstanding service from the bellhop to the reception. Understated and pleasant luxury at a moderate price. I'll absolutely stay here again! Our room had a great view of the harbor. Parking was also very reasonable.

Lovely to think you've come half way round the world, and would come back and stay with us again! Marvellous. In 2015 we will complete our room refurbishments, add more to our Art Collection, renovate our Pool and Gym area, and generally do whatever we can to be different from every other Hotel in Wellington. We will make it worth... More

I can't think of any other hotels where rare & expensive motorbikes are on in display INSIDE the hotel and sitting alongside some pretty cool & funky art works too. This place really is a great hotel & interesting art gallery rolled into one. The huge oil painting of Willie Nelson is something else too. The bedroom was excellent, I... More

A wonderful quirky design hotel with excellent staff and a great location. I didn't get a harbour view this time but I did get a refurbished room. The check in staff were friendly and efficient. The room was spotless, well equipped and quiet - just what a business trip requires. The eclectic range of artworks around the hotel are worth... More

Great that you keep coming back. Thank you so much, for your comments as well as your loyalty. If ever I can assist in any way please call me on the number below. We have refurbished about 60% of our rooms. By June we hope to have all of the Hotel rooms completed. The designs are wild as you would... More

I have been lucky enough to stay here a 4 times (3 of them were paid for from my boss for our Christmas work do) and the other I won a compition for a show and accommodation to stay here. All 4 nights I have stayed here were amazing, clean spacious rooms with great caricature. I would definitely recommend this... More

Only stayed a couple nights but all the staff I interacted with were incredibly helpful and willing to go above-and-beyond to lend a hand. I didn't arrive until quite late at night and received an apartment with a dreary view of the glass pool house to wake up to in the morning, but I'm sure anything above level 1 would... More

Hey, thanks for your comments. Our wifi system supports up to 5 devices. I suspect the problem arises from the amount of data you were downloading which if several devices are used at a time can choke them off. But we are checking with our technical people to make sure there isn't a problem. We are also beefing up our... More

Great place to stay. Close to central city. Excellent service an decor. You have to go to the hippopotamus restaurant while staying here. Good value for money. Quiet and has excellent v7ews of the harbour and te papa

Nice enthusiastic review thanks. Hope you return some time soon. Best deals are on our website. Go direct. It's an unusual hotel in that we have so many different room types to choose from. The older rooms, in the 'hotel that moved' (see Wikipedia) are all being renovated. We have completed about 60% but can't start the rest until April... More

Staying in the apartments is a pleasure. This is a fairly large hotel but it is 'different'. The art creates an atmosphere and overall the hotel is well deserved of its excellent reputation. We were on the 1st floor and on the street side but it wasn't noisy - do stay away from rooms beside the Gym!
