We loved it- spacious, and equipped with everything we could need, full kitchen facilities with dish washer, laudry with drier, dinning, and lounge. Staff members are friendly and helpful. Great location right in the middle of CBD. Will definately book again for our next... More

Great 2 bedroom apartment for myself and husband and daughter (16) right in the centre of the CBD. Felt welcome from the minute we hit reception. Then in the apartment we had a superb time - great kitchen facilities - comfy beds - quiet and secure floor. Would stay there again any time. AND we loved Wellington.

Excellent inner city location with very convenient pedestrian and taxi access. High-level guest security i.e. no public access to accommodation floors of this hotel. Very good standard of daily room servicing. Friendly, helpful reception staff. Excellent facilities in the suite. Very quiet and efficient heating. No traffic or other noise nuisance. Overall - excellent value for money.

We had booked the Executive Two-Bedroom Suite for 4 people, but when we arrived, we were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to the Director's Suite! The room was lovely and we stayed in to watch the World Cup semi-finals with an amazing city view. Lauren, the manager was the kindest person we've met throughout our entire trip in NZ -... More

When searching for hotels in Wellington, I was expecting to book 2 rooms since my husband and I were traveling with our older son and his girlfriend.

We stayed here for 2 nights and were pleasantly surprised. Fantastic location within walking distance of everything you could want in the city. Rooms were spacious and well laid out, although there was only a small window that couldnt be opened which is not entirely wonderful. The beds were very comfortable and noise was minimal. Particular thanks to the guys... More

The room here was very well appointed, everything you might need in a city apartment, washing machine etc. large lounge and dining space to spread out in. The bed itself felt small for the size of the apartment but it was clean and tidy. Decor and furnishings just a little warn but I bet that's because they are very popular.

Very friendly staff, clean rooms, modern and comfortable furnishings. They gave us an unexpected upgrade too, which was lovely. One of the bathrooms was getting a bit old, but the shower was still great. Breakfast was good and having coffee available in the "living room" during the day was appreciated. There was some street noise form the bedroom on Lambton... More
