I used the Museum Hotel to get ready before and stay the night after my wedding. We had a harbour view balcony room which had a nice view over the Chaffers Marina. Our room was well appointed and very comfortable, and made a great base to get ready before my wedding ceremony. It was great to be able to park in the carpark right outside the entrance to the hotel. The location is fantastic, we had our wedding dinner just up the road and were able to walk back. In the morning we visited the Sunday market directly across the road, which is an absolute treasure. We bought some great produce and had breakfast from the many food carts.
Our one very small complaint would be that we couldn't quite get the 'rain' shower to work - it seemed to only produce cold water from the top fitting, and the bathroom sink drained very slowly. Otherwise we had a very pleasant stay!

Room Tip: We were located in room 240 - a harbour view balcony room located on the second floor. This room has...

we got off the ferry and were to tired to drive so found the apartment online. it was lovely. beautiful comfy beds and really nice pillows, big deep bath and a great rainhead shower. very compact kitchen but with everything you need including a coffee machine and a washing machine/dryer. There's a supermarket just down the road. it was so nice not having to check out until 11am. we would definitely stay here again.

Many of our travellers find the EXPRESSO coffee, and the WASHING MACHINES a delight when you have been on the road for a few days. Hope you found our Pool and Gym facilities, not to mention the Sauna.
Great location too. Right amongst the action. Museum, Sunday Market, Restaurants Nightspots.

Nice hotel om a nice location. However never see that uninterested staff with a smile and do not know anything if you ask something. It's through if you feet peanuts, you get monkeys. Further the owner have a good taste of art, is the reason I stay.

We stayed a weekend at the Museum Art Hotel for my birthday. I had found the apartment online and it was perfect for this celebration during our 3 week stay in the New Zealand. The decoration is definately unique and I loved it! We had a few issues, with the toilet, hairdryer and washer/dryer and all issues were resolved promptly. We parked our vehicle three times and the service staff were very good. Beds were large and comfy and ohh so many pillows.

My ART COLLECTION has grown to over 100 paintings and sculptures. Guess I'm an addict!. What did you think of the motorcycles? Good engineering is art, I'm convinced of it.
Speaking of art, we have just commenced a very design oriented refurbishment of our older rooms. The program will stretch over a number of months but you will love the result.

Fog at Wellington airport force a nights stay. The Museum was everything I needed. Comfortable room and a friendly greeting. And best of all they offered the late checkout to help. The last minute booking was reasonably priced. I'll certainly be back.

Unlike the typical hotels, Museum Art Hotel is tastefully decorated and has alot of personality. We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights. We rented a car and checked into the hotel at midnight. At that time, there were no carparks. Thankfully, the service staff was excellent and he parked the car for us in the hotel's second parking area while we proceed to check into the room without hassle. The rooms were adequate and clean and the price was reasonable. We had a nice french high tea at the Hippopotamus Restaurant and they served very good meringue. Yeap, this hotel is defintiely not your cookie-cutter type of hotel . If you appreciate art, be sure to be there.

Pleased you mentioned our RESTAURANT, Hippopotamus. This year we were awarded BEST SPECIALIST RESTAURANT in New Zealand, and rated in the top 20 restaurants in New Zealand. That's unusually good for an Hotel Restaurant. I am very proud of my a la Francais team.

We spent a night at the Museum Hotel. We stayed in a 2 bedroom residential apartment on the 3rd floor. The apartment was spacious and comfortable, you could live in one quite easily. We enjoyed the pool and the spa-pool and also dined in the restaurant for breakfast. The beds were comfortable and overall we enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for an apartment with a bath. Ours didn't have one but I have had a room with one...
