Fastest Wifi in the West with a generous 3Gb available Spacious apartment but no Airconditioning and really too noisy (i was 4th floor) to leave the windows open onto the small balcony. Well equipped with modern decor (see photos).

I have stayed at this Hotel and enjoyed it however this time it was really disappointing. The room was so hot and when we left the slider open we heard all the restaurant and bar noises. And there is a dero backpackers next door so there were a lot of drunk fights to be heard. Can't believe at this price...

Great location, very central to cafe's and restaurants. Just a short walk from the bus stop. I had the big room with the balcony, very warm night so have the ranch slider open all night. Street noise did not keep me awake. My sister had the smaller room and had the fan going as there was no window to have...

Fairly centrally situated with lots of shops and restaurants nearby, as well as the bars by the harbourside. Easy walking distance to the Te Papa museum. Lucky enough to get one of the hotel's few car parking spaces. Room was clean and tidy and remarkably quiet.

We booked to see a show while needing to drive into town from Kapiti Coast, didn't fancy late night drive through traffic, so booked a place that looked good on the net. For a change this place exceeded expectations, great value for money, very central, decor first class, clean and tidy and staff that proved very helpful. What more could...

Good position in the city and looked clean and neat. Grand descriptions of the impeccably designed studios, BUT .... On entering the heat hit us.

Thank you for your comments. I'll have our housekeeper check the cutlery thank you for letting me know. Unfortunately we do not currently have air conditioning which is unfortunate as Wellington has turned on a fantastic summer. Although the bite of winter is definitely on its way. Kind regards Tony

Great location handy to the bar and restaurant area, and not far to shopping Clean, though bathroom could do with a spruce up Marked as average due lack of air conditioning (couldn't believe it in this day and age!), meant having the balcony door open and thus enduring street noise. Also balcony easily accessible from adjoining balconies Was busy weekend...
