hotel tired but rooms comfortable

I had a club room which was very spacious with access to a club members sitting room that provides complimentary finger food through the day and drinks and canapes between 5-7pm. I was working so didn't use the service but the club room has amazing views over wellington. The lifts were very old and broke down twice during my stay. Luckily I was not involved with either incident. Overall the hotel is adequate for work purposes. Gym was being renovated which was a pain. They did give you access to another gym off-site but that can be a pain.

Always great to stay here

We have for the last five years made it a weekend away in Wellington to see the fireworks display on the harbour. This year did not disappoint it was a great night (not temperature wise) bitterly cold wind but great atmosphere and the display was amazing. We also visited Te Papa and the art gallery both are worth a visit.

great location

This hotel locates in the heart of Wellington and close to everything. Small rooms but still comfortable. As it's not a big hotel it doesn't have things like gym or swiming pool. No parking in the hotel but you can find a paid parking nearby
