I only needed somewhere to stay before an early flight the following morning. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to take advantage of the hotel facilities but you couldn't get any more central and not overly noisy. The rooms were spacious and included everything you'd expect. Very expensive so for a short stay not exactly a week long holiday destination....

I wish I had a room higher up. I had asked when booking but checked in around 330 and they could only offer me a room on the second floor. It was incredibly noisy with road works and people passing as it is on a busy side road with Moore Wilson's close by. I felt as though my room was...

We stayed here for just one night. Had booked a Studio but then opted for the 1 bedroom with city view. I thought the place was lovely, reception staff incredibly helpful and polite... modern apartment, great view right in the heart of Wellington but yet away from most of the noise. We were on the 6th floor. We're actually going...

We wanted a 2 bedroom apartment and this was the only one available in all of Wellington - several major events were happening that took up every other hotel room in the city. Funky but dated decor. Spacious living area. Parking is in a separate building. There's no porter service. Free wifi.
