Arrived later in afternoon. Staff were so helpful, took luggage to room, helped park vehicle. We had a two bedroom suite. Beds were awesome. Loved having a street view for a change as usually get view of car park and wall, so ask for street view. Great to be able to get washing done. Plenty of room for 4 adults.... More

This hotel lives up to the Heritage brand and will definitely be on my preferred list next time in Wellington. I booked a Studio Suite at A$170 but got upgraded to a One Bedroom Suite - 502. Very spacious with a full bathroom with Washer/Dryer and a second ensuite, toilet with Washbasin in the bedroom. Living area was large with... More

This hotel was actually a surprise for us. First, after all the reviews I read, I was terrified we would never find it. But, if you follow the hotel's directions, you will end up right on their doorstep, as we did. So, that was the first surprise - we got here with no problem and had a place to park!... More

We stayed in a spacious 2 bedroom serviced apartment which gave room for us and the kids. Fantastic beds and decent pillows which are rare when away from home Top location and knowledgeable staff. Only thing that could be improved on is more cutlery and definitely need a chopping board more than you need a casserole dish.
