First time staying at this end of central Wellington and would definitely stay again. We got a room at a very reasonable rate and found it to be all that we needed. (Choccie on the pillow didn't go astray either!). Room was clean and well appointed. High ceilings make the room

We spent two nights here in late October. The staff was helpful and friendly and the room was fine. The place does show a bit of wear and tear, but everything was functional and the room was clean and quiet. We slept well. Breakfast in the downstairs café was convenient a

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel.\ Yes, the old girl does need lots of love and attention, we are working towards having the common areas refurbished next year I'm glad you enjoyed our historic lift! It's not everyone's cup of tea but we love it also.

This restored historic 1930's building is currently rated as earthquake prone. On the positive side the bedroom and bathroom were huge and nicely furnished and well appointed. The meals and service were fine but not outstanding.
On the negative side the lift (elevator) is probabl

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. I'm sorry the iron left a mark on your shirt if you had brought this to our attention we would have had it drycleaned for you. By law we are required to have you sign a guest registration, this is in case of an emergency we know who is in the building. I'm sorry you found this tedious but it does only take a minute. The organizer of your function emailed us to say that your function was a huge success and she has rebooked for next year so you may want to contact her to let her know that you do not wish to stay with us again

We stayed at the Wellesley for one night before catching the Northern Explorer. It's handy for that as it's just a quick walk to the station from the hotel.

The room we had was in need of some love. It was like a ship's cabin from the 1900s.

The bed was very comfortable and l

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We have 3 rooms with broken air con units and I have checked all their windows, they do all open. I'm sorry you had difficulty opening yours. We are working towards fixing these units but it requires extensive scaffolding so we are saving up for this

How long do we need to spend to check out? Can we check out at 6 to 6.30AM? (on Nov 18)
HI There, sorry for the delay in replying I did not see the question until now. For check outs outside of the reception hours just leave your keys at the reception desk and the receptionist will process your check out when she arrives to work.

"Check the photos on the website as they are specific to each room so a good indication"
"The single room doesn't have a view or any working space but it is all you need for a short stay"
"Check out all the room options before booking, there are some great options available and each room is unique."
"I travelling alone the "single" room had a queen bed and was excellent."
""Executive" room is still a bargain, I haven't tried the others"
