Foyer and landing had a horrible smell. Rooms were really out of date with old CRT TV. Parking was a hassle as it was always full. Mould on bathroom ceiling. Could hear people next door through connecting door. Busy road outside. This place needs a total revamp - give it a miss.

Cricket World Cup NZ Tour What a gem this place is! A lovely oldie worldie building unspoilt by progress and within easy reach of the City Centre. To get further afield buses run regularly from the nearby stop. The bar and restaurant are excellent and tastefully in keeping with the hotel building. Moreover the staff were exceptional.

This is the second time we have been here. The staff are wonderful and cheery but the rooms are quite lack lustre and cramped. There is no elevator and you need to get your luggage upstairs. The beds are very comfortable but maintenance is long overdue: none of the power plugs at the head of the beds worked (couldn't use... More

Im a bit undecided re the Shepherds Arms overall. Maybe 3.5 would be a fairer score. Room was smaller but comfortable overall. No sky remote could be found and then others didn't work so had to manually adjust on the box. Had to go and ask for another cup but staff were friendly and helpful. Didn't have any breakfast as...

Nice and cosy family friendly hotel in Wellington with yummy, but not cheap, food. Friendly service & warm fire. Parking available close to venue. Would recommend if not on a tight budget. Relaxing after a day exploring all Wellington has to offer.

I stayed here one night after landing in NZ and one night a week later before flying out as part of short stay in NZ. It's quite a nice pub, friendly staff and a nice atmosphere. Was busy but not packed during my stay, good selection of beers and nice food available to having to go look for a restaurant.... More

Two day stay. Arrived tea time to a very busy commuter pub, and managed to squeeze my car into a full car park. Well received and shown up to an old fashioned room on the 1st floor facing the main road. Hot day and the room was very warm, no air conditioning. Went for a stroll up to the Botanical... More

we stayed for one night, Sat 21 march, in room 11. It was $109 for the night. The room was filthy, although the bedding and towels were clean. There was dust everywhere, cobwebs on the inside of all windows that had been there for weeks, the toilet was covered in mould, the sky box was precariously balanced on the tv... More
