    Beautiful old building in central Wellington. Try and get one of the private rooms with balcony up on the top level, amazing views of the city! Comfortable TV room and a nice downstairs bar were great too.

    I had problems connecting to the internet (because my phone is very bad) and the staff was very friendly and helped me. Besides, the beds are really comfy, all the premises are clean and tidy, and there's a great pub down stairs! Totally recommend it
