PROPERTY’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 18 February 2017

City Cottages delivers a unique Wellington experience by letting you stay in a modern set dwelling, clad in a city style heratage building. Cosy, warm and inviting you can feel Wellingtons beating heart at the end of the driveway. Relaxation is guaranteed when staying in a City Cottage. 100% recommend this experience to every visitor to this city.

We absolutely loved our stay at Wellington City Cottages! Not only was it centrally located on Cuba St, surrounded by tons of great bars and restaurants, but it has a historic charm about it while having a very modern and comfortable touch. The cottage we stayed in had a very comfortable bed, kitchen, wash / dryer, beautiful wood floors in...

Our host was very helpful. However, it was a Friday night and the street party noise went on until well past 3am. Finally, some quiet for sleep. But then the road behind, a major highway, ramped up with motorcycles and such at 7am, so we netted 4 hours sleep. Dean was nice and let us check out just before noon,...

Thank you for your review. Sometimes Friday night can be noisy, but most guests have commented in their TripAdvisor reviews about how quiet the cottages are for such a central location. For those that are very sensitive to noise we recommend our Wellington City Studio. It is just a little further away from the nightlife and has great sound proofing.

Stayed a couple of nights and found everything to be spot on. Cottage was beautifully presented, stylish and well equipped. Friendly and accommodating hosts. Location is a real plus, hardly used the car all weekend and the walk down Cuba street always gave us plenty to see and imbibe. Will definitely be the first place I look for accommodation next...

we stayed 2 nights. It is a very cute little cottage with a parking space right in the heart of Wellington. The place is clean and well furnished. It is few seconds walk from Cuba Street but quiet. The only thing is the TV is very small (never seen a TV so small :-) )

Thank you for your feedback. Sorry you found the TV too small - it is a compromise between having a large screen and losing valuable space. Most folk are out and about enjoying Wellington so arent too worried about the TV size.

The location in upper Cuba street was perfect for us. The historic cottage has been tastefully restored to a modern spacious one bedroom apartment while retaining touches of the original character. The kitchen is well equipped and includes a dish drawer. The bathroom is well appointed. And the bed is comfortable.

The cottage was immaculately presented with lots of lovely little touches. The location was central which meant we could walk everywhere making the free parking at the cottage extremely handy. Would definitely stay here again. Highly recommend!

We had a lovely 5 day stay at the City Cottages. The cottage had everything we needed, was within easy walking distance of the city centre and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We definitely would book again and would recommend to others.
