Great location. Friendly people. Good breakfast. The only thing strange was my private bathroom was across the hall. There was only one other room that shared the hallway, and it was never a problem, but that wasn't something I was expecting. Once I got over it, everything was wonderful.

Excellent all round! Wonderful, personal service from the hosts, a tastefully designed and immaculate room, a good location just close enough AND just far enough from the hustle-bustle of the city. Very very impressed. Would certainly stay here again. And they have free scones!

My wife and I stayed at the gourmet stay for 3 nights. The room was comfortable. The balcony was attractive and useful on the days when it did not rain. The breakfasts were generous. The hosts were extremely helpful and courteous and met all of our needs.

Gourmet Stay was the perfect spot for a romantic night away. The hotel felt like a little haven in the city. Room 1 is the best value room in Wellington and really I would like to keep it a secret so I can stay whenever I want ;) The owner is easy to communicate with and friendly. He even left... More

I stumbled across Gourmet Stay by accident and have to say it was a clean, quiet, friendly and convenient choice. I was traveling alone in an unfamiliar city, so it was nice to have someone friendly and helpful to give advice and some direction(thanks Chris). For a modest price, I found it quiet being on a small road, yet convenient... More

My room was lovely, the location couldn't be better, and great breakfast! There's good wifi, and lovely staff. It's surprisingly quiet for being in such a central location. I would recommend this place highly.
