Another year closes and it is with pleasure and appreciation I post this feedback. The staff (Ali, Sarah, Racheal, Scott + others) are always really friendly, helpful and eager to provide whatever may be needed. Well located, really comfortable beds and affordable for business or pleasure - and I will be back.

Room Tip: If you have a preference, just ask when booking - there's not a lot they can't sort.

The room was lovely and spacious and really well maintained. The building is renovated from the old MLC building so it's not a new building but the appliances are new and the bathroom is fantastic. The kitchenette was more than adequate and the bed was comfortable. One of the elevators wasn't working but this was never an issue for me. The staff were very helpful and friendly and the location was excellent - it's a short walk to Te Papa or the cable-car and there's shops all around.
The room was quiet and I was barely aware of other guests. I felt safe staying as a solo traveller and had a genuinely pleasant visit. I'd definitely recommend it and I'll stay there again.

Hotel is conversion of old building in a perfect location. However it's decor is dated. The room was clean and well serviced. Furniture was old style and worn armchairs. Road sweeper woke me up at about 5.00 am and then the rubbish truck arrived. Nice large shower which leaked out over the bathroom floor. This will be a last resort hotel if needing to stay in this location.

Hi Dougalfreebee,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback on Tripadvisor.

I am pleased to let you know that we have a refurbishment program in place due to commence in 2013. This will include all decor and in room facilities. We would love to welcome you back when the refurbishment program has been completed to give us an opportunity to improve your thoughts on our property. As we are in the heart of Wellington city, for the lighter sleepers we reccommend our G style rooms which are located at the back of the property to avoid any street noise.

We hope to see you back here in 2013.

Kind Regards,
Scott Bellingham

An excellent location in the heart of the CBD. Everything was within easy walking distance. The cable car was only a couple of hundred metres away, as is the waterfront. Staff were really helpful. Room was clean and tidy. Would definitely stay here again.

I stayed in a studio apartment for two nights this week and was really impressed by the quality of the accommodation and the location. My room was enormous - far bigger than any hotel would have offered in the city for a comparable price- and everything was of high quality. The room was clean and comfortable, and the staff were helpful and friendly. And the location was perfect for my agenda of catching up with lots of friends while heavily pregnant and not able to walk far! I'd definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: If you're bothered by street noise, ask for a room at the back of the building when you book (I...

Stayed at Quest on Johnston for 2 nights with 3 kids 5 and under. We took the 2 bedroom apartment. It was very well equipped with full sized fridge, dishwasher, oven and hobs and washing machine/dryer. Apartment was clean and tidy and had the bedrooms were a great size. The kids bedroom was huge and they liked having a TV in there (although no kids channels). Service was first rate.
Reason we booked it was the location and it didn't disappoint, located right in the middle of town with a short walk to cable cars and a 10-15 min walk to the excellent Te Papa. Also had lots of fun at Frank Kitts park.
Also a big thanks to the taxi driver who took me all the way to the airport and back after we left something on the plane and didn't charge me.

All in all exactly what we expected and fantastic value for money.

One of the main pulls towards these apartments for us was its city centre location. It is in the heart of the CBD, close to bars, restaurants and shops. The apartment itself was very good. There was a large open plan lounge and kitchen area. There was ample seating, a dining table and a well equipped kitchen. The bedrooms were also good with very comfortable beds and good views of the bustling city. Overall a very nice spacious and comfortable apartment, conviently located in the heart of Wellington. The staff were very friendly too.Highly recommended if you are lookin for a good serviced apartment in Wellington.
