This is a great place to stay if you want to be in central Wellington. Just down the elevator and out the door. Nice comfortable rooms with lovely decor and well equip kitchen in the two bedroom apartments. Air vents in the bedrooms are a bit noisy tho.

We have used this hotel on previous occasions it is so central to most attractions and on the bus route. The staff are very helpful. This visit we arrived early in day and we were put in an apartment with very large lounge which is good. The down side being it is under the car ramp to the hotel. No... More

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for 3 nights. Its was clean and spacious and the location was perfect for us to shop, eat and sight see. The staff were more than helpful when I mis laid an item of clothing. Would definitely recommend.

Very well appointed, central down town apartments within easy walking distance of all nearby attractions. Travelling with friends, we had a 2 bedroomed, one bathroom apartment with adequate space, tidy and very clean. The only problem encountered was trying to access the Hotel by car.. this is tricky and I do urge everyone to READ the access info carefully.. we... More

This was more of an apartment than a hotel - bathroom, kitchen (with washing machine and dryer!) bedroom and living room. It might not have been the newest in terms of fittings but it was all well maintained and very clean. You couldn't be closer to Wellington center if you tried, out the door and left was the cable trolley... More

A great location with city centre parking at a very reasonable rate- if you can find it! Seeing it in the distance on a shopping street with no vehicular access we did wonder how we would ever reach it by car. Thankfully we had assistance from the wonderful Viresh on reception who gave us such clear directions that we found... More

We spent a total of 3 nights there. The apartment was well appointed with a kitchenette dishwasher and all that's needed. When leaving for the day it was a shortish walk to most things you want to see and do. The only real down for our room was the view from the window was of a court yard full of... More

It's not easy, to give a proper rating for this accomadation, because I was lucky to get upgraded to a 2 bedroom suite on the top floor (7th) with no elevator access, but with a slight disturbing sound of the always busy elevators during the day, of the adjacent elevator mechanic housing. But this apartment with 2 bedrooms, each with... More
