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

We only stayed one night at this hotel but would definitely stay again . Yes it is a little tired and the views not a feature but the room was spacious, huge in fact (we booked a two bedroom but we're upgraded to a three bed suite). We were travelling with our two adult children . It had a well... More

Perfect for a few days stay in Wellington - central location and good facilities. Had a job to find it at first, but once there the staff were very helpful with directions and information. We had a suite with full kitchen and laundry, and comfortable lounge area. We had a Chinese takeaway delivered to our room one night - this... More

Central location with easy access to airport (20mins), Interislander ferry (10mins), restaurants and waterfront. Facilities are brilliant for travellers include washing machine and dryer, well equiped mini kitchen. Staff are friendly and efficient. To be welcomed back after a 5 month gap was amazing. City Life will always be our choice in Wellington.
