Positive Reviews

Great location for dining and sightseeing

Few guests fail to comment on the hotel's attractive location, noting that it's just five minutes on foot to the top of Cuba Street, Wellington's foremost destination for restaurants and bars. Guests also report that the harbour and the Te Papa Museum are a 15-minute stroll of the motel, as are the war memorial and the CBD. Though many are happy to leave their vehicles parked for the duration of their stay in the city, drivers also appreciate the secure off-street parking and easy access to major roadways for travel out of town.

Clean, comfortable rooms with a view

Guests generally describe the rooms as simply furnished, yet very clean and comfortable, with a good range of practical amenities, including Wi-Fi and kitchenette, for their modest price range. Travellers booked into rooms on the higher floors enjoy a pleasant view of the city.

A warm welcome to Wellington

The owners of the property are often described as very friendly and knowledgeable about the city. New visitors are grateful for their restaurant suggestions and directions.

Negative Reviews

Too noisy, for some

Guests have commented that the older building's walls and floors are not particularly soundproof, and some travellers in rooms close to the lift are irritated by its mechanical noises.

Running hot and cold

Some guests have been dismayed to find insufficient hot water for showers, or else poor water pressure. Others have been disappointed to find the rooms lack thermostats, so they are unable to control the air temperature.

Getting on in years

Though the guest rooms, and in particular the bathrooms, have been refurbished over the years, some travellers describe the property overall as "dated," while others are put off by an "old" or "musty" odour.
