              Central proximity to shopping and galleries. Family friendly living room.

            • Family with children
              10.0

              The use of the gym was excellent. The kids loved it. Closeness to the Cablecar was a treat.

            • Older travelers
              9.2

              Excellent location and ability to relax in studio with all the facilities provided.

              Location of hotel meant that natuiral daylight to room was restricted but this did not spoil enjoyment of stay.

            • Group of friends
              10.0

              The staff were extremely helpful and most obliging. The situation was brilliant for walking to shops and sights. Restaurants well within walking range. It was perfect for our family gathering with rooms to suit everyone.

              The breakfast was adequate. Maybe a warm range of croissants and pastries would have been better. Otherwise could not fault it in any way.

            • Single
              9.2

              The apartment was nicely laid out and decorated, and had a fully equipped kitchen. The chocolates on the bed upon arrival were a nice touch. Staff were friendly. The location is very central, the room was quiet.

            • Group of friends
              6.6

              The relaxed vibe that the staff gave. They were friendly and forth coming when answering questions

            • Family with children
              7.8

              The accommodation was well laid out and ideal for us travelling with children as the bedrooms were separate from the living areas and had doors.Very comfortable for the time we spent in it.

              Car parking was not good. Very narrow for modern cars and not much space.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              This hotel has a great location in Wellington. The rooms were modern and well maintained. The staff - especially the desk clerks- were very helpful. The laundry facilities in the room was appreciated.

              The only negative about this hotel was that the entrance was a little hard to find for us. The hotel is worth it though.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              The hotel is in a very central location, very clean and has excellent staff. My car was broken into whilst I was in Wellington. This was absolutely no fault of the hotel, however the staff could not have been more helpful. They assisted me by photographing and documenting the damge, by contacting the police, advising on a window repair company and giving me full directions on how to get there. I am very grateful and certainly appreciated their assistance.

            • Older travelers
              8.8

              Location, surroundings, comfort of bed and pillows

              View (retaining wall)

            • Group of friends
              7.4

              I bought the reservations for my friends, and they said the had a nice stay......

              I was shown a room (Executive two bedroom suit) as an example of the room that I had purchased, and the room I was shown had a small ensuit toilet attached to the second bedroom, thus (Toilet in bathroom & Toilet in second bedroom = 2 toilets) however, when my guests checked in to the room, there was no ensuit toilet attached to the second bedroom, so I felt it was false advertising and that I had been ripped off. I was shown a room with two toilets so I expected a room with two toilets for the price I paid.

            • Group of friends
              9.6

              As above and in is in a good location, we were able to walk everywhere, without having to worry about car parking

            • Group of friends
              8.8

              The location was perfect for our requiement. We were able to walk to the venue we were going to, to attend a wedding. Great shopping right at the front door. We had a 2 bedroom unit and were able to sleep in the quieter one of the two. Definitely stay at this location again.

              The shower rose could do with a bit of attention

            • Group of friends
              8.2

              Size of apartment for 4 people was great. Location for us was also good, near shops, quay and a nice stroll to the museum.

            • Family with children
              8.8

              The Apartment was well appointed and clean. It contained most of the items needed for a comfortable stay

              need to ensure that bookings made from your site are properly recorded. Our second party reservation was not visible tot he reception desk on check in
