We only stayed here as we wanted to surprise family who had booked the penthouse(very nice) After reading reviews we were not sure what to expect but room was fine. Fairly dated. It was clean and the bed so comfortable and electric blankets. Worst was the heating, they had a Eco panel on the wall and it didn't generate enough...

Stayed here for business and wouldn't often have a bad thing to say, though the fact I'm lying here awake at midnight with a full day of work tomorrow is disappointing. The walls and windows are very thin so you hear all the traffic. The guest next door has "serviced" half of Wellington since dinner time, as well as their...

It wasn't really suitable for us, the room was very dated and a little bit further away for the city than we needed, we had a baby so too far out. The positives - The staff were friendly, the parking was free, the room was pretty clean, bathroom very spacious with a great powerful shower. The bed was comfy and...

Great location, off street free parking, reasonable room rates. Outdated decor, but warm and comfortable, and reasonably quiet considering the location, would stay here again just for the location, a short stroll to Cuba Street and Aro Valley.

We stayed one night in this hotel; in the penthouse on the top floor. I must say that although I have rarely stayed in penthouses, this one is certainly different. Upon arriving the outside of the hotel is completely run down and navigating around to the hotel parking is a challenge in itself. The reception is tiny and as you...

Quite possibly the worst place I've ever stayed in. The room was disgusting with what looked like pubic hair still in the shower. That itself was held together with silicon filler. When I complained, the lady at the reception desk all of a sudden couldn't speak English. Don't even consider this place. Pay $50 more and stay somewhere decent.

Not sure what the other rooms are like, but the group of 8 i was with stayed on the very top floor and it contained everything we required for a couple of nights. Sure, the carpet is 80's, the decour is 80's but the place was pleasant, with decent views, windows that opened, and a functional kitchen. Beds weren't brilliant,...

Arrived and found parking quite limited. Reception was reasonable a little confusion we were a sports group 2 teams of 7. The rooms were adequate but a little bit tired. The location is right in clubs, pubs and restaurant area. There is a lot of traffic and people noise from outside. A good place for a bed.
