Gourmet Stay is in a great location, and we were lucky enough to be upgraded to an en suite room. The attached Frederick St. Cafe is also great...probably some of the best coffee I had on my three week holiday! The owners/hosts are the sweetest, and I would recommend this place to everyone! And I'd stay again if I'm ever back in Wellington! So great!

We recently spent a whole 6 nights here, and next time we're in town we'll definitely be back. The hotel is conveniently located, the hosts were thoughtful and kind and despite the rooms being on the small side, they were pristine and comfortable. Thank you for a great holiday!

We spent a night at Gourmet Stay in a dorm room, and it was a great experience. The room and the washroom were very tidy and clean. The beds were comfortable to sleep on too, and it was not noisy at all at night (compared to other backpackers). The staff were friendly, and Mark (one of the owners) was very nice letting us store our luggage before the check-in time and after the check-out time. Free WIFI too! We highly recommend a stay here if you are in Wellington!

Lovely to deal with so far. Highly recommend if you want somewhere a bit special. No kitchen facilities in rooms but they provide great looking menu downstairs. The rooms are pricey but seem worth it to me if you like clean and tidy.

I recently stayed at Gourmet Stay for the 1st time, and booked for a large group, had to make a change to numbers but that easily accomodated by the owner / manager. Booked for 8 people ,adults mostly family, in total - mix of singles and couples, and all were very impressed with the place. It is in town, near but not too near the heart of town, and was surpringly quiet. Value for $, this is a great place and very welcoming, clean and comfortable.would stay here again and would recommend it.

Room Tip: I would choose a room with an opening window so fresh air, it's quiet enough so noise not a prob...
