Recently stayed as a small group of 5. This is one of the few central hotels that will provide a group booking for this number. Rooms adequate and clean although mine smelt musty. This was due to the fact that there is no ventilation in the bathroom - apart from the window. One is not inclined to open the window in the middle of winter so some sort of extractor fan would have been a good idea.
The food in the restaurant is outstanding, the only downside being the long wait for it to arrive. It took an hour for our food to come from the kitchen in spite of the fact there were only two other tables of diners there at 6.30pm when we arrived. And do you feel slightly irritated when those who have been seated after you, receive their food before you?
This hotel is handy to all of Wellington's central attractions being in walking distance to Parliament and CBD.
