My wife and I were traveling to Wellington late one night and had not made reservations for a hotel so we used Expedia and found a great rate for Quest on Johnston. The pictures looked great, it looked clean and it has a parking garage located right across the street. We checked in around 9pm. Even though it was after... More

The Quest is reasonably priced for a good location. It is located in the shopping end of town, was clean, and has friendly staff. I wouldn't say the rooms are luxurious, but the units are self-contained, and if you are looking for a 'home base' for exploring the city from, it's great. The only negative was when I went to...

central, convenient location. Check in was easy, room comfortable with all the amenities you would expect - selection of teas, filter coffee, good array of kitchen utensils if needed and quality toiletries. milk provided in the fridge which is good (and not always available). Bed firm and room warm and clean. I was on the 16th floor and found that... More

We needed a place to stay before we caught the Interisland Ferry early the next morning. We found this one last minute. The room was very small with a rip in the carpet but clean and just what we needed. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend for an overnight stay.

The room was well laid out and very functional including the kitchenette. Rooms were quiet and well maintained and was clean and fresh. Very central location being just off lampton quay and close to westpac stadium and the waterfront We stayed here for a weekend trip to the rugby and were very happy

I'm generally generous with my views. The Quest on Johnston is the second worst hotel I've ever stayed in. I'm in room 8D which on the fire escape plan looks like one of the larger single apartments. I have 2 windows both slightly larger than a sheet of A3 paper that are single glazed and don't shut properly, so you... More

Would recommend this hotel - great central Wellington location (short walk to museums and waterfront; restaurants and public transport close by), friendly reception staff, comfortable and clean rooms well set up for the traveller (the small kitchen is great if you don't want to eat out). Comfortable bed. Room was warm considering the weather! Would stay there again.

If you want to be in central city Wellington then this is a great location. Just round the corner from Lambton Quay and a block away from the waterfront. We had a 2 bedroom apartment. Main bedroom very large, second bedroom was adequate but the clothes hanging space was pretty tiny. Spacious living and kitchen area, but such a small... More

Do not stay on the street side unless they have stopped the man on the street cleaning vehicle from doing lazy 8s at 2 am. You cannot sleep! it is TOTALLY ridiculous! The streets are like canyons so the noise reverberates round. Rest of the place is fine. Staff helpful. I did this review in February but it does not... More

Stayed for a weekend, in 2 bedroom unit, with our three children. We were very happy to find such friendly staff, and enjoy a spacious room on the 15th floor. Plenty of room for the 3 children in one room, and a good sized lounge / dining / kitchen also. Clean and warm, the Quest on Johnston was great value,... More
