This is a very odd shaped hotel the reception is the size of a double closet and then one has to walk down the stairs around corners until one finds the "dining room/bar" which it happened is on the ground level of a street. Generally I would say that the hotel was in a good location as we were able to navigate to and from it with reasonable ease. I did enjoy the free wifi here. It was one of the few places in New Zealand where wifi wasn't an issue - either in term of price or reception. The room was just adequate - tables etc to put your things were limited which became an issue for us. Staff was helpful with info about town etc. The tightness of table/dresser space resulted in us leaving a north American adapter to and electronic device in the hotel room - we just didn't see it amongst all the clutter. This was a live and death item. When we notice (in Wellington) that we had left it behind, we contacted the hotel, specifically Lucas, who was on duty when we called. He was outstanding in assisting us to get that adapter to Wellington. We can never thank Lucas enough and that fact makes all others about this hotel pale in importance.
