  • Group of friends
    4.2

    not much and I would not return or recommend it to others.

    The room was extremely small (4 small paces from 1 side of the room to the other) and was badly lit. It had a small rack for hanging clothes on and not even enough space for 2 small overnight bags to be left open and functionning.It was extremely noisy with noise control being to shut the windows.

  • Single
    6.6

    The location was convenient and leaving was good..

    Parking was limited, water pressure and shower barely adequate and adjoining elevator noisy

  • Group of friends
    8.2

    The staff were helpful. We were able to get a good price taxi to the airport from the hotel. The Hotel was close in to the city itself. The room was serviced between the days we were there.

    It was not the most beautiful place, but adequate for an over-night stay. There was tea and coffee, t.v. and phone in the room, and the room service was good. Staff on the desk were obliging.

    Very central, ideal for what we wanted

  • Family with children

    Insufficient parking for guests, annoying having to wait to be served when you want to get your car. Regarding the crockery, one cup had'nt been cleaned properly, it had a tea/coffee stain ring around the base of the cup, and one of the mugs had a large chip on the rim. Noisy !!

  • Couple

    Very close to CBD and great price!

    Mini bar had out of date goods in - but handled very well and was not charged for them and were replaced immediately

  • Family with children
    6.2

    It was on a good bus route, so easy enough to get to central city. You just need to make sure you get the correct bus number.

    'That I actually got to have a bath in my room, and the view of wellington from the window

    draft under the door into the room, I used a towel to block it.

  • Family with children
    7.8

    the fact it uses free range eggs. good vegetarian options but a few more choices would be nice. room was nice and light, clean. staff friendly.

    mre vegetarian options in the late night room service.

    Very helpful staff.

    The first room we stayed in the window sheers were covered with mold.

    Location.

    I didn't like the lack of parking, or the fact that their 'valet' parking service only meant that they would park my car in a different lot for me...but not retrieve it. I had to walk to get it myself in the pouring rain. Also, our "king" bed was really two singles shoved together, and during the night they kept rolling apart so that I'd wake to find myself down the crack in the middle.

  • Single
    8.0

    The staff are fantastic, very friendly and very,very professional!

    A few small issues with the room, mainly a drafty window.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Great for a cheap night in town handy to shops and pubs. We were there for a 21st at the southern cross hotel and that worked perfectly as it was within walking distance.

  • Single
    4.6

    Location was good

    Very noisy and did not get to sleep until 4 am with a large group running around and yelling all night. I understand that this is not abnormal behavior but the absence of staff to resolve the matter was. With a drive to Auckland at 7 the next morning I wasnt to happy. Parking was rubbish and would have rather paid extra for a decent one.

  • Group of friends
    5.4

    Great Location, efficient and polite front desk staff , free parking

    Bath tub /shower was dangerous as you had a huge step down to get to the floor and no non slip mats.... Slovenly housekeeping , our beds werent made up just pulled over ...and we asked the front dek 3 times to get our tea and milk refreshed and for fresh glasses and cups to no avail. Our request was totally ignored... Also not clear are the fire exits as when we followed the signs around ,they took us to a deck not a fire escape.......
