Ordered some Takeaway Burgers for Office Lunch on a Friday. Absolutely amazing. Ordered online and picked up just after they opened. Great service & the chat wasn't too bad either. Well worth trying - will definitely be back.
It’s a “restaurant with accommodation”. The waiters have to be receptionists as well, there is no reception. The owner probably doesn’t want to pay for staff members and that’s why. I’ve been working in the hotel industry for more than 15 years and this is the first time I see a hotel without a Reception at all!!! It’s an old hotel refurbished that probably with the proper staff it could be in better conditions, as no one can pay attention to details or even reply the emails you sent (at least). Very good and friendly staff working for a mean owner/manager. I hope they get paid very well as they have to do both jobs, they deserve it.
If you go to the effort to make a reservation to book a room, and even if you get an e-mail back confirming that your reservation is confirmed as being all correct, I STRONGLY suggest that you telephone them first to make sure all is okay rather than assume it. We made a booking several weeks in advance and drove 2 1/2 hours to Wellington only to be told that they have "computer issues" and that sorry, but no room for you two. AND yes it is impossible to find reasonable priced accommodation in Wellington at 3.00pm in the afternoon !!!!!!
Location good and room itself adequate. But, don’t stay in a room connected by a door as noise travels under and hotel take no responsibility for rowdy guests plus if the room beside you is smoking and smoke wafts IMO your room, still hotel takes no responsibility. If the room beside has early morning guests checking in at 5am and they’re noisy, again management sorry but take no responsibility. Get the picture ? And that night manager number to call in the night for assistance seeing you paid money for a reasonable sleep ? Goes nowhere and hotel sorry but take no responsibility. Tip: stay somewhere else. Homegrown weekend was the excuse. That’s BS. We went to Homegrown and didn’t behave like f*wits.
Great place to eat with family and children. I had the fish and chips (with groper) and it was all tasty and cooked well. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere, only slight complaint was a member of the party ordering a Thai beef salad with only a few strips of beef which was a bit disappointing considering the price. Overall, great experience and would come here again :)
