Stayed here for just one night before flying home to Canberra, nice clean comfortable room. Great location, easy walking distance to museums, shops, cafe, supermarket. We were in Room 17 which was up the back, very quiet, no issues at all. Free parking, easy access to the airport would definitely stay her again.

Room Tip: Room 17 - up the back nice and quiet

First the good, the person at reception and check-in was wonderful and very helpful. She gave us great information about the city and how to get to the ferry we were taking the next day. The location is great with easy walking access to the harbor (10 minutes and city center (15 minutes). We booked a room in the older section of the hotel. It had great character with the molding and fireplace, but the furnishings were old and well used. They are remodeling so perhaps our rooms hadn’t be redone yet. The bottom line is that we would not stay here again.

Thank you for your comments.
As you can imagine renovations take time and in order to do these we prefer to do this while we are not quite so busy. When a room is done up it takes up to 3 months so it is a slow process.

Handy location close to Courtney Place with bars and restaurants etc. Very noisy (in the front rooms on the street at least) perhaps would be ok on a week day rather then a Saturday night - I got no sleep.
Spacious and comfortable room amd bathroom - clean.
Front of house staff need to retire, any request ( actually only questions asked ) I was made to feel that that I was a pain!
Fine for a night but not my first pick!!!

Room Tip: Choose a room away from street front!

Unfortunate that the guest felt this was not his best experience. A little economical with all the facts. As we recall they checked in at 10.00 am (4 hours early) and we later moved the bags to his room charged his phone so they could enjoy the city and arrive back late at night. We feel comments about retirement are somewhat rude.

Location is what it's all about, very close to the city and 50 meters from Ortega's Fish Shack. And 10 minutes to the airport. That's not to dismiss other aspects of the motel. It was quiet, clean and comfortable with friendly, welcoming staff. The amenities were good and lacked nothing. It was very easy to get on to the highway in the morning to drive to the airport. A good place to stay when in Wellington.
