We stayed just one night in the one bedroom acco with ensuite. We had a very energetic and very loveable welcome by Kenzie (more on that later). The host who stays on the property was very warm and pleasant. Although very close to CBD, the property is tucked away in a quiet side street. A 5 minute walking distance is...

Very nice place to stay. Comfortable. Excellent people running it. Thank you so much for a great stay. Would happily book another stay next time I come to NZ. Highly recommended if you are ok with sharing the bathroom with other two rooms of civilized people from all over the world. No complaints. Just great.

A great place to be central to Wellington, yet feel like you are in Europe. Quiet, private rooms, brilliant staff and service. Having the space to hang out and spend time with friends unhindered by the city amazing. Would happily return again.

The rooms were very nice and the place was renovated in 2011 (seen in some photos of the history of the property). Easily walkable to places in Wellington.
