First time at this location, two streets from the action of Cuba St , close to Uni and only 12 mins from the airport. Comfortable clean rooms with reasonable but industrial views over Wellington city to the water.Only Queen bed but also a single for those restless sleepers.Good quality beds.No reception after business hours but easy to gain access with...

Southern Cross Apartments provided good accomodation close to Wellington city centre. The location was just off the top of Cuba Street and was very close to its many and varied eating places -although the cooking facilities in the rooms we had for our family were also sufficient. Our room was a bit noisy due to the early morning construction going... More

Unit not clean - had to ask receptionist to clean blinds as they were filthy. NO car parking - seriously! Had to park on the street and pay city parking rates. Busy streets so had to park next block up and carry bags back and forth. Kitchen extremely tiny and old and not up to scratch. Unit very small. Located... More

We stayed in this apartment during a very busy weekend in Wellington. The location is good, close to all that is wonderful about Cuba Street, and the service was great. The apartment was clean and just large enough, but the noise from the restaurant/bar below was a problem until well after midnight.

I've stayed at these apartments a few times on various occasions and will continue to come back mainly because of the prime location and wheelchair access also good value for money and very clean. There is free wifi and the heater provided keeps the room nice and toasty. The downsides are that it's right above a bar which can get... More

Pros: very convenient, functional apartments. Clean, well maintained. Cons: Terrible and stingy wifi (you get given one week's access, even if you're staying for a month. So slow it won't load Web pages in the evening). Rooms are either boiling hot or cold - no heating or air con, people leave their room doors open even in autumn to try... More

We stopped at the Southern Cross apartments while in Wellington for the New Zealand v England Cricket Wold Cup game in February 2015. That's right, the one where England got destroyed!!! Anyway, we found the apartment to be more than adequate for the 3 of us, the beds were fine, the room clean, bathroom ok, tv fine and the wifi... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights . Our room was compact but ideal for us. The complex is situated close to the top of Cuba Mall and has a great restaurant next door with very yummy stone grill. I was warned that some rooms were quite noisy especially if they were near the bar or restaurant, because... More

We arrived late, and the staff was great, left a key inside the locker outside, we just used the code on smartphone and got it. The room (2-bedroom accommodation) was very clean & nice , but one thing that disappointed us was that we had to pay to get wi-fi. The location was great.

the rooms were very small, cold, not enough blankets on the beds, uncomfortable mattress, a very tiny shower. this would be considered a low quality apartment. This should be cheaper for what it offers.
