This is just a great hotel. There is not much more I can say. But I'll give it a go! Every room is unique. I staying in room 3 (in fact I am here now writing this review!) which has a balcony and overlooks the harbour. The bed is great, the shower is great, the amenities are great, even the simple continental breakfast they serve is great too! Guests get free internet access (saving an average of $30 a day in Wellington!). This will certainly be my hotel of choice in Wellington from now on. I just wish all hotels had as much style and personality as this one.
Just FYI this hotel does not have room service or an attached restaurant (however they do offer the continental breakfast). But there are lots of restaurants and cafes in the area to cater to all sorts of tastes and there is even a supermarket just down the road. It is in a great location for the national museum (Te Papa Tongarewa) too, which, from all reports, is excellent.More
