We stayed here for 1 night before catching the bluebridge ferry the next morning. The room was clean, spacious and nicely decorated. It was prefect and I would have stayed longer if I had more time. Free WiFi was a great bonus for us, as we were travelling it helped us to plan our trip and stay in touch with... More

We booked here for a weekend this month and followed the given instructions to find the hotel with no trouble at all. This hotel is tucked up above Lambton key and you go up an elevator and through a carpark to get to it. It is not the Taj Mahal. But it was spacious, clean and quiet. The room was... More

Enjoyed our 1 night in the Gilmer apartment hotel. More spacious than we needed, clean, and best of all just 5 min or less walk to a central street with easy access to the harbor and shopping, food, etc. Would stay here again! Free wi fi was a plus.

We stayed for a weekend at the Gilmer Apartment Hotel, chosen primarily for the location in Central Wellington as we had no vehicle. We are in our seventies but had no problem walking to the waterfront, Te Papa exhibition, shops, restaurants, the cable-car and to Westpac Stadium. The Gilmer is on a hill – you have the choice of the... More

We stayed at Gilmer Apartments for 3 nights in October 2015. It is a fairly central option with parking (for an extra charge, which is clear upfront). The apartment was nice enough and was in a pretty central location near the cable car up to the botanical gardens and about 10 minutes' walk from Cuba Street and Courtney Place. One... More

Ideal place to stay if wanting to walk around Wellington sights. A short cut takes you close to the bottom of the Cable car, 20 minute walk to Westpac stadium, 10minutes to Te Papa. Our apartment had a kitchen as well as laundry facility in it which was wonderful. Free ear plugs if wanted. Only down side was a truck... More

I booked this apartment nearly a year ago and am glad I did. I pre-booked a car park space, but there is plenty of nearby parking if you want at various prices. Location wise it is very central and just a short walk to the front. Good check-in by Matt and a two minute walk to our room. Note that... More

The Gilmer was conveniently located just above Lambton Quay and served us well considering the price. It was clean but a little tight, has no air conditioning and no views. A combined washer/dryer (my first experience with one of these) was in the room. Just wash your clothes and hang them - the dryer is useless. The kitchenette and bath... More
