Great central location, small basic clean & comfortable room with cooking & washing facilities. The room was facing Johnston st & was quite noisy in the late evening. Value for money - no, very over priced for what we got.

Positives: spotlessly clean, rear rooms have no street noise, friendly receptionists, short walk to shops and TSB Arena, great kitchenette. Negatives: Ugly view of the exterior wall of the next building a metre or so awy. Thin interior walls with no soundproofing - we could hear EVERYTHING happening in the bedroom next door including the couple having sex. The 1... More

Great place to stay, clean, comfortable and very quiet. Visited 3 times, arrived at midnight each time, with easy check in, the staff were always happy, big smile and always keen to assist with local knowledge. Our stay was for 7 nights, everything in the room worked well, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave. Rooms were cleaned and freshened daily. Quest is... More

The location is wonderful but the room itself needs a little work. The front desk was very helpful in finding things and holding luggage for us. The room was a bit small and it did offer a laundry area with directions which was wonderful. The pillows were not the newest or best but it was clean. Would I stay again?... More

Stayed here for one night recently. Arrived after hours, however check in is easy enough. Room was very spacious with a separate bedroom to lounge area. The only problem the room was very noisy. It seemed the water pipes (I think) behind the walls tended to clang away all night - not sure if this was anytime someone else in... More

Quest on Johnston is a nice hotel. The location is very central, providing easy access to great shopping, restaurants, activities, the railway station, the waterfront, and the Interislander Ferry. The staff were helpful and kind. The room was clean and had a full kitchenette. Quest also offers broad views of Wellington, especially from upper floors. However, there is a catch.... More

I checked in and it felt like the experience you get when using a rental car - review the terms and conditions (which are in about 6 font!) and then sign the bottom. When I asked what I needed to know she said don't lose your key (I try not to do that) and if I come in after 9... More

In disrepair. Shabby. Dirty. Sticky floors and lacking in care or attention. Stuffy - no air conditioning - old oil heaters for warmth. Definitely no mod cons - tired decor and rips in furniture. Stains on carpet. Appliances unclean, rusty and falling apart. Dried on food on cutlery and smeared glasses. Saving graces - clean sheets, clean towels and Central... More
