A great stay here. Comfy beds and good facilities. Bathrooms might need a wee upgrade; but a nice place all The same. Gutted due to Covid levels we couldn’t indulge in their amazing buffet breakfast. Definitely will be back. All staff were helpful and friendly!

Arrived in Wellington for a family wedding and we were delighted with our two rooms. One looked out the Beehive and the other over the Harbour. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The pool was well used and the breakfast buffet was very impressive.

We stayed 2 nights and he room itself was lovely a good size and great to have a small kitchenette for those that need it. Our aircon/heating wouldn't work, it would only blow cold air even though we had followed the instructions and kept trying from time to time but we made do as we weren't going to be sitting in our room It was quiet too once inside the room. The facility were lacking a little; the gym that is advertised as 'state of the art fitness centre' is not located in the hotel, they have one bike and one treadmill and a few weights in a very small space in the corner next to the pool area, you can talk to Reception if you want a better workout and possibly get a pass to another gym but not ideal. Staff during breakfast service couldn't cope with the influx of guests and ran out of everything from plates, bowls, food etc which again is not good enough for a large hotel. On a positive the staff did try and do their best and were very polite and friendly throughout.

Clean room, good size. Comfortable bed. Small kitchenette with microwave, sink, flatware and cutlery with was a surprise, not so common for New Zealand hotels that are not serviced apartments. Helpful staff. Allowed a late checkout.
