We stayed for 2 nights on a weekend break to Wellington and were very impressed. We had a special weekend offer for the deluxe studio which was very well equipped and spacious. There was an excellent kitchenette which allowed us to reduce spending on eating out, and the room was very large with a new tv and dvd player. The bed was very comfortable and we had no problems with the temperature of the room (although being winter, we did need the heater!) Bathroom could do with a refurbish but we were happy with it for the price we paid. We had no issues with street noise either (and are both light sleepers).
In terms of the location, it is within easy walking distance of the centre and we walked everywhere the whole weekend.
We arrived after 8pm on Friday but had been given comprehensive instructions on how to access the key which was straightforward. We didn't encounter any staff until we checked out on Sunday but she was really friendly and gave us tips on things to do and where to go for our final day in Wellington.
There were only 2 disadvantages for us. Firstly the shelf in the shower was really dirty - I would prefer this was removed rather than kept there with dirt and mould on it. Also in our opinion, the wifi was very expensive - it was cheaper to buy a sim card and put data on it than to use the wifi. From staying at other apartments and motels, we found everywhere gave us a limited amount of free internet during our stay and we then purchased if we wanted more. Even then, the purchasing cost was not this high.
The negatives would not stop us staying here again and we highly recommend it!
