    First time actually staying in Wellington so found the location of hotel to be excellent. Walking distance to great restaurants and attractions. Staff were excellent, friendly and helpful. Room was comfortable but could be due for some maintenance. Overall highly recommend.

    Overall happy with my stay. Passing through Wellington and happy with the price. Hotel was obviously older, but done up quite well. Great location and food, beverage options. My one gripe was for having sky tv the picture quality was very poor.
