“Clean, spacious, handy location and affordable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

I stayed in a studio apartment for the first time recently just for one night. I was impressed with the room. It had everything you'd need for a longer stay (washing machine, microwave, fridge, hot plate). The bathroom was small but new and the shower pressure was 100%. Bed was comfortable.

On the negative side, there was no airconditioning (although it's possible to open the windows) and the room was quite warm. Also, limited Sky channels but overall, I'd definitely stay here again. The location is fantastic, the reception staff really friendly and the room rates very competitive.

Really it was just perfect. Well priced, great location and all good. I'll stay here again definitely. Service was friendly and helpful. Compared to its local neighbors, it was great value. There's a good selection of bars and restaurants very close.

Won't stay in this apartment again as it was expensive and there were a number of things not working. Also the carpet was worn and shaby. Also the only heating in the apartment were two small heaters which struggled to keep the lace warm!!!

2 nights were spent at this hotel which is well located in the main shopping and business part of the city. We had a studio apartment which was spacious, clean with a kitchen and washer/dryer. The bathroom was small but adequate. Our room was at the back of the hotel and was very quiet especially for the centre of the city.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Stayed in a studio apartment for an extended period of time (good value rates for long term stays). The apartment was relatively small but well equipped and had everything required for a home away from home. Friendly staff and a very central location just a couple of meters away from the main shopping street (Lambton Quay) and the beautiful Wellington waterfront. A good selection of local bars and restaurants are all within walking distance. On the minus side, the apartment at the back of the building was quite noisy during the day due to the A/C unit of the neighbouring building. Also, the distance between that building and our window was only about two meters which limited our privacy.

Room Tip: Rooms on Johnston Street side are quieter and have more light.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

I recently stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 16th floor of the Quest on Johnston with my wife and 2 year old daughter.
Having stayed in Quest on Lambton before and been very happy with it, I was keen to try this place as it had even better reviews, although I can't see why.

Check-in was fine. Friendly helpful staff, clean modern reception and, a real bonus, our apartment was ready when we arrived at around 11:30am.

The apartment was generally a good size and was well equipped. However, it was looking pretty tired and in need of a facelift. Whilst there was nothing dramatic, there were multiple small patches of peeing paint and the fittings and appliances were quite dated, particularly the bizarre stove/dishwasher combo which leaked all over the kitchen floor.

In terms of presentation, the apartment was fairly clean, but again, it could have been better. There was obvious dust and fluff build up on the extractor in the (pitifully small) bathroom, and the shower had the sort of soap and water marks on the glass that take time to develop and are near impossible to remove. A couple of the towels had small holes in them.

Soundproofing was not brilliant, and the lifts could be heard clearly throughout the apartment.

That said, the apartments are well located and had everything we needed.

The bottom line is that whilst there is no reason NOT to stay here, there are better options for the money.
