Convenience

Basic & good value for money. Most of business was down in the Lower Hutt, which more expensive to stay so was handy to motorway to commute. Sunday night stay so parked on street for free. Anyone booking needs to add extra parking cost which pushes night rate higher.

Good value city stay

Good location for my purposes; helpful staff; clean; quiet; roomy. Only complaint - the extra charge for car parking, being unusual in NZ, needs to be highlighted better in the blurb.

Satisfied hotel

Friendly staff, clean room, central location and quiet room. Just what we needed. I thought the price was reasonable too. Only one thing was that hotel charges $15 for guest's parking.

Handy Location

The Kingsgate is in a very handy location. My wife and I caught the bus from the airport(free if you are a senior and off peak) and then just walked a little way up the hill to the hotel. Staff were courteous and we got an hour later check out when we left. It is handy to the Cathedral and also the Backbencher Pub where you can soak up the atmosphere in both places. Good value also.

Great location!

I spent 2 nights at the Kingsgate. The room was small and a wee bit dated, but clean and perfectly adequate. The location though was majic. I could walk to my course, walked to dinner with my nephew and enjoyed seeing the sea and the beehive from my window! The staff were friendly and helpful and pointed me in the right direction on all my queries.
