A nice corporate hotel centrally located. I was there for a week, though, and had enough troubles with housekeeping early on (like not making up the room) that could have made for a disaster of a trip. The concierge, Simon, stepped in, though, to right the ship and make sure I was properly looked after for the rest of my... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights in early January. We booked because of a special offer of room and children stay free. This deal was extremely worthwhile as breakfast was included (2 adults and 2 children). However, note that there is no parking area for this hotel and so if you arrive by car you must use their...

Whilst it was only one night the room was well appointed and clean with a harbour view. The bathroom was very spacious but still the shower in the bath arrangement. Centrally located with short walks to the city centre and wharf restaurants. The staff were obliging, polite and provided information on local attractions. On thing that annoys me is when... More

This hotel is centrally located in downtown Wellington - it is a great jumping off spot for seeing the sites around the city. Everything is walkable. The rooms are very nice, spacious and clean.

Beautifully appointed rooms & facilities, spacious & clean. We loved staying here. A hotel that knows how to do it right. Hotel staff were very knowledgeable of local attractions & facilities and helpful when needed. Breakfast was full of beautiful food & options outside or the normal breakfast buffet offerings. Centrally located, close to shopping, restaurants etc. Try it out!!

We were on a tour and stayed here 3 nights. It is a VERY comfortable hotel. Even has A/C! The rooms we had were huge and there was even a small kitchenette. The bathroom was well appointed. You had a choice of servicing your room from doing nothing to only changing towels/accessories, to full cleaning. The location is great. you... More

Needed a place to stay at short notice and the online deal was great. Quick and easy check in. Room on the 11th floor with a good view, plenty of room. Very comfy bed and quite quiet for a central city hotel. Overall, very pleasant.
