3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed here for 2 nites, at the 2-bedroom suite with 3 adults and 1 kid in tow. Location is central - if driving, it's a bit tough to get parking later in the afternoon, when its parking garages fill up. In-room washer and dryer provided are awesome and a welcome convenience. Letdowns: shower water pressure was poor, and room paint... More

Arrived to a beautiful 2 Bedroom Suite as a Complimentary upgrade - totally unexpected and so kind of the Hotel Staff to do so - amazing. Hotel is immaculate and the Apartment was stunning. Definitely recommend this Hotel to anyone needing accommodation in the... More

Friendly staff couldnt fault any of them. Have stayed here lots and will continue to do so. Went the extra mile to help us, well beyond expectation. My four year old son loves coming to Wellington and staying here and as we know kids are the best critics. He says it is awesome.

Stayed this last weekend with my elderly mother. Staff went out of their way to make sure we had everything sorted to make her comfortable. Room was spacious and clean with all amenities. Beds were very comfy with loads of pillows and extra balnkets if needed. Location excellent within walking distance of everywhere. Will stay again

Sold as a luxurious stay, but strictly average. Apartment was clean but tired looking. (Flaking paint etc) Didn't live up to the photos. Big rooms but old fit out. No elevator to the 7th floor which is a pain with heavy bags. Too expensive for what it was and nothing like other heritage hotels I have stayed at in NZ.

Rooms are great, clean and spacious. The location is pretty good. It is quite a walk to Cuba St and Courtney Pl, but well located for the waterfront area and the cable car. I have stayed here a number of times and will definitely return again

Visited with friends and were impressed with the room. Had requested a room as elevated as possible, but this was misunderstood and taken as a request for a room as low as possible, which wasn't a great start-but the standard of the room was imoressive. A little more on-site parking would've been nice...

We booked a two bedroomed apartment and everything was perfect. Great location close to shopping and restaurants and the staff were wonderful. Parking was $15.50 a night, which is cheaper than usual. Highly recommend and will stay there again.

It was a little tricky finding the entrance (reception is located on 6th floor), but we were treated warmly and given good recommendations from the friendly staff. We stayed in a two bedroom, two bath suite which was perfect for three of us. The Continental breakfast had lots of healthy options including fresh fruit, smoked salmon, and pastries.
