    Thank you for your feedback. Sorry you found the TV too small - it is a compromise between having a large screen and losing valuable space. Most folk are out and about enjoying Wellington so arent too worried about the TV size.

    The location in upper Cuba street was perfect for us. The historic cottage has been tastefully restored to a modern spacious one bedroom apartment while retaining touches of the original character. The kitchen is well equipped and includes a dish drawer. The bathroom is well...More

    Thanks for your review. We often get great feedback about our beds - the most important feature of the cottages!

    The cottage was immaculately presented with lots of lovely little touches. The location was central which meant we could walk everywhere making the free parking at the cottage extremely handy. Would definitely stay here again. Highly recommend!

    Hi, we are staying over from 24 - 26 Nov 15 and realised the cottage is not air-conditioned. Like to know what is the weather during November, especially at night, would it be warm ? Thanks!

    Hello - The cottage has very good heating. An electric wall heater, fan heater, electric blanket and heated towel rail. It is very warm. November is spring so the weather will be starting to improve too.
