6/10 Good

The property was well located, staff were helpful and the gym was well equipped. Sadly our room had a hole in on wall, a blind in the bedroom that was broken and both the heater and air-conditioning were too noisy to leave running at night.

Nice place, large room, clean. Hard to find lobby. Strange but nice flowers on adjacent walls

2/10 Poor

Despite being told our room was available after 2pm, we were not allocated a room until 4.30pm. I thought the upgrade was for our inconvenience but we later found it was charged to our credit card. That was not explained. This charge was quite different to the booking receipt via Wotif. The next day, we were offered a room service at 5.20 pm. They constantly blamed covid and lack of staff for issues but that’s not my problem, not when they charge an arm and a leg. I thought I was booking a luxurious weekend, huge huge disappointment. Not sure how they think they can get away with treating people this way. Will never stay there again.

Fantastic location for visitors to Wellington. Helpful staff - were able to check us in early and hold bags for us after check out to accomodate for our flight times. The apartment was lovely and perfect for our stay.

8/10 Very good

We were upgraded to a suite which was a pleasant surprise. The staff were friendly and helpful. The only negative was that the air conditioner struggled to warm the place on a cold, wet weekend in Wellington.
