The owner was very helpful and friendly. We were on the 4th floor with a beautiful view of Wellington. There were some works going on at the building but this is only temporarely. Nice room with fully equipped kitchenette, separate bedroom and en-suite bathroom. Clean and quiet. Old charm. Fantastic location near Hwy 1, Cuba Street with plenty of restaurants... More

Stayed in the 'Penthouse' for 2 nights. The apartment was large, light and airy, it apeared to have been decorated recently. It could probably sleep 5 or 6 people. There are great views of Wellington and its surrounds from the large balcony that is on two sides of the apartment, pity there was no table and chairs out there so... More

Paint peeling off the ceiling.Great view on both sides. Great cooking facilities, stove top, microwave, fridge,good laundry downstairs. Staff friendly. The only let down was the Wifi. We were...

Located in walking distance to most places you would want to visit in Wellington, this inn is a great value. Helpful hosts, large room, spotlessly clean, great kitchenette, quiet, comfortable, with off-street free parking. Only negative was no free wifi.

We really wondered what this motel would be like. It turned out to be like a 1 room furnished council flat in a block of flats and that was fine. The room was large, quiet and well equipped. There was a heater. The bathroom was ok and the shower was adequate. The beds were fine. There seemed to be an... More

Kevin, our host, was really helpful and ensured our stay was first class. Handy location for everything, with Cuba Street's many restaurants almost on your doorstep, and the... More

We stayed in the Penthouse suite. Getting up there was a bit of a mission due to the ancient lift and then a flight of stairs at the end. However, the journey was worth it once you got to the room as the facilities are very comfortable and the views are amazing. The location is excellent with the cafe, restaurants... More
