Being centrally located we are in the perfect location to exploit the many events going on in Wellington City. There are always other guests looking to get out and about so it is a great place to meet new friends. Thanks for choosing to stay with us and for contributing to the wonderfully friendly atmosphere.

I spent four months at the Hotel St George and I ended up finding a family. The staff is always willing to help whenever sympathetically. Great place to interact with many different cultures and make friends as well as being very well located and the price is fair .

don't expect much. Good for backpackers who don't mind cockroaches, water damage, poor and expensive Internet and a backpacker style stay. The Beatles certainly wouldn't come near this place now. Best part of this hotel is the location.
