We booked this hotel as it was a very good price and a short walk into the centre of town. We weren't expecting luxury, but were pleasantly surprised with a clean, well appointed room that we were more than happy with. I would have given the hotel a 5 if the shower was updated and full pressure. The front desk, restaurant and lobby were very nice, I can imagine if the rooms were of this standard the prices would have been higher. We wouldn't hesitate to use this hotel again, great value.

My partner and I had a wonderful two night stay at this hotel. It is very conveniently situated and allowed us to walk around town without needing public transport. The room was clean and modern, however the shower took forever to heat up, the shower curtain was a bit broken and the window frames were unkept and didn't stay open. The hairdryer didn't work but was replaced quickly. Breakfast was available. Overall it was a pleasure stay!

Location was fine and reception was very friendly our room though small had everything we needed for an over night stay. The onsite restaurant was excellent and the food was very good. The young man behind the bar was very cheerful and on the ball. The main drawback was that we asked for a wake up call and a Taxi to be organized for the morning. did not happen. The morning receptionist was most apologetic and quickly arranged transport for us.

Our room was basic but good - Warm and clean with extra blankets if needed in the room. The reception is disappointing with 2 sets of steps and manual doors to manipulate with luggage which was a big challenge for us with a young baby and suitcases... was a really good location and we will definitely stay again taking into consideration the entry... a helpful man to help with doors and heavy luggage would be really awesome.

Great location. Very near cuba street which is full of good restaurants. Strong wifi. Room was spacious. Room was very run down. Extremely flat & uncomfortable pillow. Toilet was very run down. Bath tub was cracking. Heater not very strong.

The reception area looks very nice but once you jump into the elevator and go to your room it seems to change somewhat. The photos on the website look great but the room themselves are on the small size and the finishes remind me of a school hostel. Stained carpets, patched holes in walls and ceiling, not the best. The rooms themselves were quite cold and there is no heating or extra blankets to be found anywhere. Parking as others have mentioned is very poor, tight parking spaces and not many spaces to park. However if you are just looking for a place to rest the head for the night then this place might do. Handy location to town and a simple 10 minute stroll sees you in the CBD. If you manage to get it cheap then it might be worth it.

We stayed here for 1 night visiting Wellington. The room was clean and an adequate size for our group of three people. The car park is very small and the spaces are very tight, we were lucky to get a space. Hotel was good value for money.

Found the reception very flash looking and looked forward to seeing my room....oh my! It was cold, the lighting was very poor unable to work on laptop without straining eyes....tv had terrible white shadow so unwatchable. Shower pressure was terribleso took baths instead but took over half hour to fill.. On the top floor when it was windy there was something loose on the roof keeping me awake at night. And the parking is a complete nightmare! Won't be staying here again!

Very over priced for what it is, however it is close to the city and Cuba street which is helpful. Has everything you need towels fridge tv the bed is clean and comfortable! Receptionist is very friendly. Nice enough hotel but could be cheaper.

This hotel room was the largest we had during our NZ trip so that was great! The room only had one flat pillow but it was easy to call and request more. The hotel was quiet at night even for the area and was warm without using the in room heater. Room was good value for money based on location and room
