“Good hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2007

Stayed 2 nights at the Shepherds Arms as part of our stay on North Island. Picked this property as recommended in the Rough Guide to new Zealand.
Accomodation was a good size and clean. The bathroom was small but functional. The decor is as you would expect of an older pub and essentially charming.
We found the staff to be charming and always helpful.
Car parking is available at the hotel.
From this location you can walk easily to most of the sights in Wellington and it is very close to the botanical gardens and parliament.
We can recommend the food in the bar too!

  • Liked — The location and olde world charm
  • Disliked — The ensuite bathroom
  • Stayed November 2007, traveled with family
