Spacious retro styled rooms with fantastic views of Wellington harbour. I stayed in a suite with a balcony and wished I had been able to enjoy this amazing room for more than 1 night. The bathroom was Hugh with an amazing bath! Walking distance to the CBD. Staff are very friendly and they have a great cafe.

We arrived at the hotel 2 hours before checking in time .We were enthusiastically welcomed by Sarah. She was very helpful and professional and even though the room was not ready she took care of our bags and the housekeeper was helpful with any request. The room was very clean and tidy. The hotel is perfectly positioned for the best... More

The location of this hotel is great; the main cafe and restaurant hub is within walking distance, as well as a great variety of independent shops. It's also just across the road from Te Papa, though we didn't get a chance to go see it ourselves. Rooms are spacious and well designed; we stayed in the studio room and fully... More

The hotel had beautiful furniture and was close to town but no doors on the bathroom (they had curtains?!) and didn't replace the towels and when we accidentally spilled tomato juice on the floor we got a lecture from the girl telling us how they'd just spent $5000 on a new carpet and wanted us to spend $60 because they...

Hi Lauzmas, Thanks for raising the extra cost of cleaning to remove the large tomato juice stain from the carpet in your room. It is standard industry practice for hotels to charge for specialized or additional cleaning services required beyond the norm'. It would have been helpful if you had told us about the breakage and spill in your room... More

Wow wow wow. That basically explained our feeling during our stay. Clean, chic, classy. Obviously Alan the owner pays absolute attention to details. We enjoyed the decor found in the room and at the elevator areas. Love the big bathroom, heated floor and clean sheets. Special mention to Sarah who is so sweet and super helpful to all our queries.... More

A pleasure to stay, lots of neat little touches toiletries, heated bathroom floor, lots of Rv channels on sky not just a few etc, the location is excellent and staff always friendly and helpful. Much more atmosphere than the larger impersonal chain hotels.

My partner and I stayed one night in the Suite (room 9). Apon arrival we were warmly greated and made our way to the top floor.

My husband and I stayed here as part of our holiday to New Zealand. We were warmly greeted by Evan and check-in was a breeze. The hotel is pretty nicely located across from the park and close to some very tasty restaurants. We walked to Te Papa (the National Museum) the next morning as well -- super-convenient!
