Exceptional 10.0
Great Hotel
Great hotel excellent location handy to Te Papa very spacious two bedroom apartment.
Rebecca, nz1 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Would stay again
This was a great place to stay overnight while in Wellington for work. Close to the waterfront and a great supermarket with lots of dinner options. The host was very helpful and the rooms beautifully clean with everything I needed. Only down side was the howling wind waking me in the night due to a weather event, and the hotel cops the wind down by the waterfront.Hardly their fault as they can’t control the weather!
