Wonderful location in exciting city!

Clean and comfy hotel near Te Papa museum (spectacular!) and Wellington waterfront. Older hotel, could use some upgrading of facilities, but clean and a good staff and overall an excellent stay there. Wellington is a most fascinating and delightful city (a mini-San Francisco in many fun ways), with a beautiful harbour and waterfront and much to explore and enjoy. Excellent and varied restaurants abound, and the hotel is well sited for all that. And be sure to spend time at Te Papa!

Not 4 stars

We picked the hotel at the last minute because it was unbelievably cheap and had more than 4 stars. How it got 4 stars, one will never know. The room smelled as bad as any bad smelling room can smell...old and bad. The beds were ancient and springy. The staff was fine and helpful....certainly the day staff was nicer....but the woman at the night desk was fine. Not to say that the hotel was without merits...I got a last second room for $74 which is silly low for the location...but as you can see from my review, there is a reason for that.

A decent 3-star hotel

This is not a 4-star hotel. It is 3 stars at best, primarily because the building is old and worn. I'd guess it is 1960s vintage, and appears not to have been updated since then. The rooms were clean and the location is pretty good (close to the waterfront, national museum, and restaurants). Our mattresses seemed a little too soft and saggy, but perhaps that is a personal preference. Wellington is sometimes windy. We were awakened at 4:00 a.m. by rising winds whistling around the hotel.

Nice boutique hotel, great location

we were stopping over for the night to catch the ferry. Hotel was located near all the restaurants and shopping. The only thing is that the room heating was not on when we arrived and the washroom was very cold with no heating.
