This was my first time at the Quest on Johnston but I have used other Quest properties. The service at reception was friendly and efficient and the room very acceptable. I had a studio room on the 8th floor - not huge but it had everything that one needs: a table big enough to work on (with two powerpoints hand),... More

I stayed here for 2 days on business and was overall happy. Check in was friendly and fast. The corridor had a funny smell like cooking onions, but I guess with guests self-catering in the rooms it is to be expected. The studio room was spacious with only a single seat/couch, but 2 seats at the small dining table. There's... More

Stayed here for a few months with work. Rooms vary, studios are spacious, the two bedroom units are huge. Staff were great, very accommodating. The front front rooms can be a little noisy but that was mainly due to the construction going on across the road. Great location, close to the waterfront and lots of great places to eat. If... More

My husband and I had an overnight stay at Quest on Johnstone. We came to Wellington by train and found it was an easy walk to this hotel, even pulling luggage and in steady rain. The receptionist was extremely helpful and booked us a taxi for early next morning. The accommodation was of unusual design as it was long and... More

Cannot fault the location, very central and the rooms were clean and tidy but on the small side as is the bathroom. The staff member who checked us in was very helpful and went the extra mile finding us champagne glasses which was much appreciated. Not sure we would stay again if we had other options but a good clean... More

We stayed 3 nights in a compact, clean but charmless room, sixth floor front. Had to duck under the television to open the window a crack. Small bathroom with little room for toiletries. Functional kitchenette. One sachet of ground plunger coffee supplied per day. Fridge not cold, melted ice in freezer section. Not good value, not first choice, but accommodation... More

We stayed 3 nights in a studio apartment and found it compact, but comfortable and clean. The room was very quiet, no noise from other guests at all, and this was during rugby 7s weekend. Bathroom was small with little room to put toiletries out, took some juggling. Coffee was terrible, I drank hot chocolate instead (supplied) The only issue... More

Good value, all we needed was a place to sleep, friendly staff, Didn't find it to noisy with the windows shut. Instant coffee was terrible! Bed was a bit hard. Close to everything. Gave us a couple of small bottles of wine when they learnt it was our honeymoon.

This review is not because we stayed there but because of the Earthquake in Wellington at the time we chose not to check in. My booking was non refundable etc,etc, however Neesha the manager was very helpful & obliging in refunding the money already had paid for the room when booking. I know there is legislation that covers this type... More
