                Clean, tidy, modern, well appointed in terms of what was in the room Generally very comfortable

                Street noise at night coming from heavy trucks occassionally and also yahoos or young party revellers Washing machine dryer facility was inordinately slow There was no washing machine/dryer in the room I stayed in

              • Family with children
                7.0

                Central location, walking distance to Te Papa, shopping, restaurants etc...

                Not sound proof, very noisy at night.

              • Single
                9.6

                The location was perfect as it was right in the heart of the city with lots of choices for shopping, food, movies & theatre. It was also a relatively safe place for a woman traveling on her own to be able to walk to the shops. It also has Lone Star next door which meant I could go for a drink & dinner & return to the hotel easily. I also enjoyed a beautiful massage two doors up at Get Healthy Living. So all in all, it was the best stay Ive had in Wellington city. Also I had pre booked a studio but was upgraded to a 1 bdrm apartment.

                Mmm not much point I would think in having balcony's that only look at other balcony's and a sky high concrete wall. This comment is not a reflection on the hotel but of the public transport customer service. The night before I had asked the receptionist if she could suggest a taxi company for my departure to the airport in the morning and so she booked me a taxi which turned up 10 minutes late and the driver was not happy when I asked why and actually just glared at me and didnt answer :(

                Could have had a mini bar. A Stereo or Ipod dock in the room also should be something you consider.

              • Single
                7.4

                Location, modern facilities

                Design a bit bland and institutional.

                Catherine the receptionist when we arrived. She deserves a pay rise! She went out of her way for us including getting a fan because the rooms were too hot at night and we could not adjust the temperature.

                Too hot in the room at night.It is hard to find your way from the carpark to the hotel. There were no directions that we could see..

              • Single
                9.6

                I found it very relaxing and comfotabled. Almost like home. I would like to thank the friendly staff for pionting me in the right direction. It was my first visit to Wellington.

                7.8

                The lovely staff, including the friendly cleaners who were really warming and welcoming. Also the bathrooms were really nice.

                We were told there was a sauna online but couldn't find it anywhere. Pool was also very freezing. Kitchen prducts were minimum for price paid: no coffee plunger or toaster!

              • Single
                10.0

                I thought my room was gorgeous. Just the right size ,new ,modern ,clean and fresh and a nice enviroment to be away from home in.

                8.8

                Gorgeous apartment.

                Television did not work, though we were only there for a night so it was not really nessesary. Not shown where to go to use the swimming pool, some kind of map would have been nice

              • Single
                6.6

                Well designed

                The blinds only to the outside inadequate balackout - needs blackout curtains

              • Couple
                8.2

                the hotel was central to restaurants and bars and we were able to park our car onsite without having to worry.

                Our room, although comfortable looked out onto the carpark next door.

              • Group of friends
                7.4

                Good security, close to city, balcony, fairly quiet, large fridge & kitchen

                There were no long length mirrors, no draws, couldn't work heater, chairs too hard to sit on, needed another couch as there were 4 of us, sink kept blocking up in bathroom,

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                Good locantion to clubs and cafe,as we had a weekend getaway.

              • Couple
                8.2

                It was close to a friends apartment and close to Courtenay Place.
