Stayed here for 1 night in a 2 bedroom unit on floor 5 flat B. Check-in went smoothly with friendly receptionist confirming our specific bedding request. Other relevant check-in information i.e. included breakfast, parking, off-site gym and internet availability were not mentioned.
There are two drop-off (5 minute) parking spaces outside the hotel. Overnight covered car parking is 5 minutes walk from the hotel at the nearby TSB arena for $29 per 24 hour period. When we first arrived by car there was a utility vehicle parked over the drop off zone area forcing us to circle the one way streets twice before being able to pull in. This is OK for me as a frequent road visitor to Wellington but could be more tricky or stressful for first time visitors. I'm sure this event was just bad timing on our part but definitely something worth taking into consideration if travelling by car.
The corridor leading to our room on level 5 had an unusual fishy smell. The apartment itself was spacious and pleasantly decorated. The furnishings and beds were comfortable and clean. The bathroom was large but lacked a door lock or extractor fan. The water pressure was very powerful but the knob on tap/shower water switch was missing making it difficult to turn the shower on - the glass over bath shower door did not contain the spray from the shower head adequately and the lack of an extractor fan very quickly turned bathroom into a steam room with a rather slippery floor.
There were some brown stains on the living room carpet floor and the painting on some of the walls was crumbling in places. Sky TV was limited to approximately 12 channels. The included continental breakfast packs as part of our deal were well stocked with various preserves, bread and individual drink cartons. The normal price for these breakfast packs is I believe $9.90.
With so many local café's/restaurants serving breakfast at reasonable prices nearby I really don't think I would want to pay for a breakfast pack separately.
The free 4 hour per device wireless internet access would have been a good service had the connection not been so incredibly slow. My devices are new and normally quite grunty but I gave up trying to browse after 20 frustrating minutes.
Check out was quick and unproblematic the next morning.
The general noise from the street below goes on all night. As the windows are not double glazed I don't think much can be done about this. If staying here again I would definitely remember to take some earplugs.
