“central to lambton quay and buses, parking expensive!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2012

I stayed here for 7 days working in in the wider WLG region. Very handy for inner city although this part of town dies in the evening, handy if you want quiet. Parking is $30 a night if arranged by Quest or curbside $8.5 for 2 hours, get's pricey by weeks end.
Staff were pleasant to deal with, accommodated a number of my requests.
Room was really comfortable, made my own meal using the kitchen, ideal for a weeks stay.

Room Tip: I was in an 'a' apartment, was street side but in the evenings there's little noise in t...

We stayed for 3 nights and were really impressed with these serviced apartments. We had a two bedroom apartment which was well appointed. Not flash fittings but nice enough. Compact kitchen with all that you need including in room washing machine/dryer. Excellent location we didn't hire a car as it was easy to walk, bus or taxi around this great city. Bathroom was small for 4 of us but good enough. Clean rooms and really helpful friendly staff!! We would definitely stay again.

Everything you could want - great location, friendly & helpful staff, good value with everything you would need in a self-contained apartment. We stayed for five nights in a studio apartment. It was compact but had everything. Central to transport & within walking distance of the wharf and many sights including the museum, cable car & westpac stadium. Loved our stay!!

We stayed here for two nights in a two bedroom apartment. It was well furnished, clean and spacious (apart from the bathroom which was tiny but this was fine). The staff were friendly and helpful. Location is very good, central to most things. As it was Saturday night there was a bit of noise from the pub nearby, but this is not the hotel's fault. Overall a fine place to stay.

This place is lacking in anything particularly Kiwi, and there are no "special touches" - you get what the basics. However, it is superbly located, clean and comfortable enough for up to a week's stay.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom place, and it was definitely big enough to accommodate us, and our young son, as well as our friends who visited every day. Bedrooms are large, although the main bedroom lacked cupboard space. The kitchen is big enough to cook in if you need to. The lounge area is comfortably sized, although all furniture is pretty cheap and flimsy - not exactly a couch you sink into, and the table and chairs seemed to be made of plastic and plyboard. The bathroom is small - the shower is tiny and the shower head situated quite low, so if youre 6 foot, forget about washing your face with ease!

Location wise, this quest is great. Its walking distance to all things wellington - te papa, the cable car, cafes and bars, cuba st, lambton quay. Rates seemed to be cheaper over the weekend, so I wonder if this place is more often used for business travellers? That makes it a good deal for weekenders.

One note - if you have a car, definitely pay the extra $25 to park in the parking station oppostie. Parking in Welly is a nightmare!
