Stayed for four nights. It is an easy walk to the main transport hub and CBD and located very close to a large supermarket. The room was small but adequate for our needs, it was a nice place to relax and sleep after a day of sightseeing. The bed was really comfortable, slept better here than I do in my own bed. The staff were amazing, from the lovely woman looking after the breakfast area during the long weekend, the awesome and witty waiter we had Sunday night, and the amazing housekeeping staff who were fantastic (and also helped us find an item we'd misplaced). Will definitely consider staying here again in the future.

One of the best hotels of this class that I have experience in NZ. The quality of service and equipments far exceeds my expectation that was based on the price. I strongly recommend the stay here without any hesitation, if you are travelling by car, as the location is not very convenient to access the city center.

A quiet and comfortable stay. Parking availability appreciated. Staff helpful and try their best to please. Condition of the room rather tired with cracked washbasin but price is reflective of this. Overall great value and a very pleasant stay.

Stayed for 2 nights here. Hotel is clean, rooms are not so spacious but not tooo small. View from the room was amazing. Paid only $116/night including breakfast for 2 so very good price.
Luke at the reception was very friendly.

Family always stay here when visiting Wellington. Reception is always efficient. The rooms are always tidy. We recommend the large rooms on the corners on level six and seven. While the venue was short-staffed these holidays, the team did a great job keeping up with people and their requests. We will stay again - and again.
