The Boulcott Suites are an excellent base from which to explore wellington. They are centrally located and close to excellent bars and restaurants as well as the cable car and queens wharf. We stayed in a townhouse which was excellent in terms of layout and facilities. The units are very modern but can appear modular and not very aesthetically appealing from the outside. Internally they are excellent.

The downsides were that versus a hotel stay, maid service is only once a week and you have to pay for any changes to this schedule and certain areas could have been cleaner (balcony had left over cigarette ash on and bathroom floors were not overly clean). Overall a good base to explore the city and we wuld recommend for couples or equally for families.

Stayed for 2 nights on a girls' weekend. Arrived Saturday afternoon. Service was polite and helpful. Reception staff were clear with instructions and friendly. We had trouble finding our house and had some very helpful cleaners direct us to the right place. Our 2 bedroom townhouse was spacious, clean, quiet and modern. There was a mild toxic smell in the house. We think it was because the building was so new - new paint, furniture, carpet etc. Not a pleasant smell but dissapated after opening the doors for a while. The rooms were all exactly as the photo showed. The townhouse was not going to be serviced while we were there as they are serviced either every 7 days or once guests have left, however, staff were very accommodating if we needed more teabags etc on the second day. We hired a DVD for the low cost of $3.50, however, it was scratched and we couldn't watch it. Reception were very apologetic and credited our account. Overall, we were very happy with our stay and would definitely stay again. The two things I would recommend is perhaps a regular airing of the rooms in the townhouse and a better selection of DVD's that are scratch-free.

We stayed in two townhouses which were very trendy, spacious, clean and new looking. There are 2 toilets with two bedrooms in each townhouse. It was generally a very pleasant stay the location of the properties were in the CBD which makes travelling handy and yet it's tucked away so it was quiet as well.

Criticism include no air conditioning or cooling facilities and in Wellington when the weather is warm and humid it may be quite unpleasant to stay. Relaxed check out option is only subject to availability. For families with young children, you may find it hard checking out by 10 am.

We also had a drama with the swipe card keys not working and was locked out of our rooms the night we arrived. Luckily for us, we had another townhouse to wait in while the night duty manager works on what the problem was. Eventually they had to give us another to stay the night. The next day at reception, we overheard another guest complaining of his card not working.

Checked in at 2.30pm after leaving bags, on entering our room we found cleaners still in there doing the two bathrooms, we sat and waited for them to leave. I attempted to make a plunger coffee for myself only to find no plunger, cleaner said she would organise, which she did and we got delivered one about 4 hours later - brand new one still in box. Then while my grandson was asleep an hour or so later a knock at the door and before I could open it in walked maintenance and proceeds to tell me he needs to fix a tap, slammed door waking up grandson. Proceeded to fix kitchen tap which was loose but not bathroom one which was leaking. Next morning (we were staying 2 nights) he walks in again to clean the windows on the balcony. I was not impressed that these jobs had to be done once we were in there, couldn't they have been fixed prior to check in, and windows cleaned after check out!! Reception not overly friendly or helpful. Ordered a taxi for morning which never arrived and was never done apparently.

We stayed here for four nights, after switching from a much less desirable apartment nearby. We had reserved a 2-bedroom, 2 bath unit in the main building and absolutely loved it. The apartment was spotless and beautifully decorated. The kitchen, though a bit small, was well-equipped (the stove is electric - we prefer gas for cooking - but we found that to be the case in most apartments that we've rented in this country) and we cooked in almost every night. The bedrooms were extremely comfortable and we had a lovely balcony overlooking a nearby church, the central business district and even had some water views. There were three of us and it was very nice to have two bathrooms. Also there was a separate washer and dryer and laundry detergent was supplied.

There is also a nice, large TV and a DVD player (though only the standard ~10 channels, including the SKY movie channel).

The location alone is worth staying here. It's conveniently located in the CBD just a block or so from great restaurants, bars and an excellent supermarket. It's also very close to TePapa, which we loved. The front desk staff are friendly and were available until 9pm each evening.

Unlike other reviewers, we had no problem with noise, even though we were there during one of the AC/DC concerts when a lot of people were out and about drinking, partying, etc.

The only downsides are parking (few spaces and a charge per night) and also internet access (a substantial daily charge).
