Aspect Apartments
Reviewed May 24, 2010

Good location in the CBD. Across the road from the TAB! Quiet in the weekends as this is far from Courtenay Place. If you like the comforts of a hotel, don't expect any of that here. For the price, its ok - kitchenette and reasonable standard of bathroom. Beds are small and you can hear activities in adjacent rooms. People have mentioned all the shortfalls, but if they feel that way, ask them how much they paid for it. You can't complain for the price.

The location of these apartments are great but that is about the only positive thing I can say about Brandon Village Apartments.
The foyer is dingy and run down, the lift is tiny and stinks and there is no reception. My phone broke and I was staying by myself with 2 small children which meant I had to take them to try and find a phone booth to call and report the problem. I did this early (10:00am) and nobody came till 6:30pm to look at the problem which meant I missed a lot of calls and worried my husband who had been told to call at a certain time.
Basically these apartments are too cramped to stay in for more than 1-2 nights and I would give them a miss. I have stayed at Boulcoutt suites before and would definitley spend the extra and stay there next time instead.

Quite surprised by the feedback from the March 2008 Brandon Review. We recently stayed at the apartments and were pleasantly surprised by the great location, prompt and polite service. We found the apartments clean and tidy, well maintained and will happily stay there again and would recommend Brandon Village to other friends and family.

We stayed at one of the Brandon Street 2 bedroom apartments over new year. While the furniture shown in the website is in the apartments, the rooms are cramped and all the windows of our apartment faced brick walls. The place was therefore very dark and also had a damp smell. I wouldn't stay there again.

I had read about these apartments in one of the New Zealand forums and decided to book it.

We did all the booking on the phone and when the person I spoke to realised that we were a family travelling with three children he moved us to a bigger, more suitable apartment for no extra cost.

This apartment was huge and very well equipped if you had been staying for a while.

It was also very centrally located and the secure car parking in the CBD made it great for us getting an early ferry the following morning.

We were very comfortable in this apartment and wish we had stayed longer than the one night.

group of 6 people (3couples) staying at these apartments over easter weekend. cleaning was absolutely revolting. toilet dirty, shower dirty, marks on bedding, blinds and windows never been cleaned, hadnt been vaccuumed, not sufficient amount of towels or toilet paper. no reception at this particular village (they have 2 other villages in wellington). after we complained about the cleaning someone was sent back although they werent happy about this as it was a public holiday and they had to pay them more! staff were not helpful or apologetic about the standard of cleaning just complained to me that they were supposed to have the day off! and only cleaned the absolute minimum, the things that i told them about but didnt bother to vacuum or anything. after writing an email complaining when i got home i recieved a reply telling me to come and stay with them next time im there! just so that they can have even more of my money after we were treated badly! definately would not recommend this place, we paid good money for what looked like upmarket accommodation on their website when a cheap motel would have at least been clean!
