The rooms are very compact, so make sure you get along well with your travelling partner. Having said that, I must say that they are very well equipped and kept very clean. Quest on Johnson is in the heart of Central Wellington, very close to all buses, fabulous shopping, the famed waterfront, incredible cafés and bars. Everything is within easy... More

I have to say, the good things about this hotel was the service by reception as well as the fact it is right in the middle of the city so it wasn't far from Lambton Quay amenities. I do have to say, the place is becoming a bit dated and it is not too clean. We stayed in a studio... More

I stayed at the Quest on Johnston for 16 nights on a business trip to Wellington. Location is convenient for shops, restaurants and sightseeing, and the rooms are comfortable enough, if a bit drab. When I arrived I was allocated a one bedroom apartment with no view other than a satellite dish on a neighbouring wall. I pointed out that... More

Stayed one night for a work function. easy walk to harbourside restaurants and shopping. Rooms not new, but clean and perfectly reasonable for a short stay. Great view from floor 15. No parking but Wilson parking available straight across road.

My stay at Quest was one I would gladly pay for again. The view was idyllic of the Wellington skyline and the service was prompt and friendly. A quiet place where you can guarantee a peaceful nights sleep

We stayed here on a work trip, we have stayed her before and we're not too impressed but we were limited to choice due to WOW being on in Wgtn at the time, the price of the 2 bedroom had been increased due to this, when we used the oven it was not clean and smoked out the room (... More

My stay at Quest on Johnston was a enjoyable one. I arrived at the hotel and was greeted very pleasently by the guy on reception. I had booked a studio apartment and my room was on the 14th floor. The view from my window were of skyline which was very nice and the room was quiet. The windows had been... More

There are at least four Quests close to the city centre and this one was below average in my experience of all of them. This is really just a block of small apartments with someone on the desk during office hours and someone else cleaning up. Don't expect anything else. The studio room is really for one person - two's... More

Our stay at Quest of Johnston was not pleasant, terrible in fact - firstly we were not greeted in a friendly manner, then the "key" to get our vehicle into the car park across the road did not work! We were a group of 4 women and our 2 bedroom unit had 1 queen & 1 king bed. We phoned... More

Well it started when we went to check in. I asked if it was safe to park on the street (meaning will I get towed) she replied very sarcastically that "Wellington is safe!".. I then questioned the incredibly high fee for lost room key in their fine print ($125 for loss). Hang on.. they don't cost that much to reprogram!... More
