Worst accommodation I have ever had to live in. I was there for a few months. No oven, broken old two element cooker, room was dirty when i moved in, bed was sagging on one side, horrible impractical furniture, disgusting bathroom. Entire building reeked of curry. RIDICULOUSLY expensive for a room in general let alone what that hole was. It... More

I staid here for around six months this year. It was a cheap and clean service appartment studio. It is very central in Wellington, close to Cuba and CBD.

This is probably the worst accommodation I have ever stayed in. I have no idea how it can claim to be 3.5 stars, I would give it 0. The first thing we noticed as we entered the room was that the bed was sloping. The window sill were rotting as were the skirting. a youth hostel or backpackers would probably... More

The shower was moldy, the room was dirty, and the whole place smelled of curry. Terrible place to stay. The front desk staff were friendly, but thats about it, would never stay here again.

Disgusting sums up my experience with the Quest on Willis. Paid $129 per night for a room. Regretted this the moment we walked in - we should have walked straight out again. Where do I start? The entire building stinks of curry. Hasnt been renovated in at least 30 years, paint chips and scuffs everywhere. The furniture has been home-... More

If you are after student-like accommodation, dated, 70's decor, a corridor area that stinks of old onions, screaming children in the rooms surrounding, lifts that are INCREDIBLY dodgy.. Then this is the place! Luckily we got a voucher and did not pay full price for this room, and even then I still felt ripped off. We will definitely NOT be... More

We grabbed a deal for Quest on Willis then read the reviews and went oh no. We requested a car park which was reserved for us, you really need it around here.The front of house staff were very welcoming and full of information. Our room was opposite the lift but we weren't disturbed by noise. the corridors are narrow but... More

I went to Quest on Willis with low expectations after reading the reviews left from October. I was pleasantly surprised to find that my room was tidy and comfortable, with a queen bed and couch and great cooking ammenities. The shower was great, good pressure. The room was warm and quiet. The windows have recently been double glazed and they... More

Horrific Experience. Travelled to Wellington on a tour for the Rugby World Cup and was unfortunate enough to be put into this hotel along with some others from the tour group taking up 10 other rooms in total for 4 nights. Upon pulling up to the hotel we all assumed it was a joke, the street however proved to be... More

The room was old and dirty, no blankets on the beds, 1 small heater to heat the room, large crack in the window letting cold air in. To top it off the building smelt of Curry. End result 3... More
