We stayed at the Gourmet Stay on 24th September 2012 on a roadtrip North to South. A flying visit before catching the ferry early the next morning.
Mark was very welcoming and pointed us towards a place to eat and a number of nice bars. We were also very fortunate to be upgraded into Room 1: an en-suite room with a large terrace complete with hot-tub. Happy days!
The location was great. Only 5 mins walk to Courtenay Place which is full of restuarants, bars and the Embassy Theatre (of LOTR fame). Wellington itself was a really nice city. Wish we'd allowed ourselves more time to explore.
We left too early to sample breakfast. Somewhat disappointing as the cafe/deli looked like it would have served great food. (TIP: Apparently if you book directly with Gourmet Stay rather than through an agency breakfast is included).
In short, we had a great stay and would love to come back someday for a proper look around Wellington.
