I booked last minute as a single female traveller. This place is such an awesome find. Clean comfortable room. The breakfast set up is great. Was so impressed by the friendly host and how welcome I was made to feel. Handy to the CBD. Highly recommended.

Nice set-up-- somewhere between an upscale hostel and B&B. Very friendly, free wifi, continental breakfast. Just a few blocks from Cuba St and other restaurants. Great value for the price. The side street it's on is a little dark but quiet at night.

I can't begin to explain how excellent my stay here was. The staff, in addition to being so friendly, helped me book a ferry and rental car, dried my laundry for me (!) and recommended nearby restaurants and a wine bar. I'm thinking about rearranging my itinerary so that I can come back!

Overall a pleasant stay based on the price we paid for a family consisting of two adults and three children. The managers, Dwayne and Haley, were very hospitable and offered plenty suggestions in regards to local activities/ attractions. Location was good with close access to Te Papa and many excellent restaurants/bars/cafès. We do feel that attention to detail is lacking... More

Our stay was enjoyable. The staff were friendly and helpful. The owner is a lovely helpful man who went out of his way to make sure everyone was happy. Breakfast was a little lacking in my opinion, there could have been a little more choice of cereal or breads. The room was reasonable and the location was great. I was... More

Husband and I stayed here when we came to Wellington for his birthday. Perfect location near shopping & restaurants. In a quiet street so we weren't kept awake by the city noises. We had the rooftop room with the deck & hot tub which was great for a midwinter night. The owners are friendly & welcoming. The only small complaint... More

Dear Amby_no1, Thanks for the brilliant review! We're pleased you enjoyed our great location - in the heart of all the action but situated on a quiet side street.
