      Very reasonable price for the closeness to the middle of the city, helpful friendly staff and a room wiyh a veiw.

      Pleasant room. Good shower

      Morning check out time - could have two people on desk

    • Older travelers

      Where the hotel is situated is excellent it is close to many facilities, shopping New World movies cafes and Te Papa.

      One other time we stayed at the hotel we got complimentary breakfasts which was a very nice touch.

      Rubish containers should be emptyed every day

      very noisy room, could hear other guests toilets and showers. view over carpark, paid $30 more than quoted price on internet.

    • Couple

      The relaxed and helpful attitude of the staff. On-site parking was very useful and staff were flexible over parking times (depending on occupancy). I.e. we were able to leave our car on site the next day to carry out shopping which was brilliant, and a real selling point in my book.

      The Hotel is slightly older than most, but they have done well to make it presentable and competitive with some of the newer up market hotels. Certainly not at the full luxury end, but definitely good value for those on budget, and in a very handy location to Te Papa, downtown Wellington and the Oriental Parade.

      receptionist was nice

      room looked really old and rundown and was smelly, the bathroom was not cleaned with hair and stains in the bathtub, the water from the tab was yellow/brown and smelled,

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      Great location, clean, comfortable room with pleasant friendly staff.

      We felt the breakfast was best when presented as a buffet.One morning we waited about an hour and 15 minutes to get the main course! If not a buffet then best to take the order when people sit down rather than after they have finished their fruit and cereal.

    • Older travelers
      8.2

      Excellent service from the restaurant (gluten free) comfortable accommodation.

      A howling wind noise through closed windows.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      Very handy to Courtney Place and theatres not to mention water front and Te papa.

      were dismayed to find house bar closed on our return from show on Saturday night (10.20pm)

    • Older travelers
      8.8

      Location perfect, staff pleasant, room small but clean and comfortable

      Breakfast was a problem for them. The hotel was busy but the restaurant very disorganised - buffet on days 1 and 3, menu on day 2, very slow service for anything that was off the buffet. Food was good when it finally arrived, but glad we were not rushing.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      The bed was extremely comfortable . the view over the beach was amazing and the staff was very helpful

      Well you need to re-consider your internet plan as it was not convenient to use i.e i purchased the one hour plan for $6 the price wasn't an issue what really bugged me was that i had one strait continues hour , all i wanted is to check my email and internet banking which took me only 10min then i turned off the laptop i didn't realize that its a start and finish within the next one hour unlike other hotels were the one hour is counted down which means that i can use the internet anytime as long as i still have minutes to spare up to one hour now that would be the perfect plan i would even pay $10 for it .

      Location to the city, Good car parking
