Booked by chance through an I-centre this proved to be perfectly sited. Good deal for three nights, so worth negotiating. Very comfortable studio apartment with all we needed to self cater. About 100 metres from top of Cuba street so easy walk into centre and main attractions, plus main restaurant area. If you've the energy wander up the road from...

Finding a reasonable motel with parking in Wellington was our goal, and this worked well. The motel is just a block away from the top of Cuba St. This allowed us to walk to restaurants and various attractions in the city since parking in town is difficult. Our studio apartment had a very large room and nice bathroom plus kitchen...

Stopped in Wellington to visit the Weta cave. Great place to stay in Wellington - very friendly and welcoming manager who took time out to pass on directions etc. Great unit, very clean and comfortable. Close to Cuba Street and easy walk to town. Don't forget to say hello to Dudley the dog! Excellent and would definitely stay again!

We stayed for 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay. From the professional yet friendly check in with Mark to the very clean rooms everything was great. Free parking when staying so close to the city is a great added bonus. Whenever we are in Wellington we will stay here.

We spent 2 nights here and enjoyed our stay. The reception from Lorraine was very pleasant - she gave us ideas of where to go for a choice of restaurants and was generally very helpful. Off street parking was a real plus. Our room looked out over the harbour and was comfortable. The kitchenette was useful. This is a great...

Rooms have been renovated and come with brand new kitchens and bathrooms. They are large and comfortable. Great shower pressure, flat screen tv and perfect for those who like to self cater. Very good for families also. Cuba street restaurants ate 5 mins down the road and it's an easy walk to the waterfront, cable car and Te Papa museum....
