Overnight stay

A great feel to the hotel, and we were fortumate to have a upgrade to a harbour view delux room. Great ambience and pleasant staff.my only negative statement is that there is no free WiFi in the rooms. It is a bonus that should be available at all hotels, especially four star and above.

Looks good but there are surprises.....

The location and style of this hotel are wonderful. However, the rooms and bathrooms are tired. The are also charges that we found excessive given the price and style of the hotel. $20 parking, worse though was the $5 Per Hour wifi! More and more we are finding that hotels take a lower charge as part of the room rate and that is acceptable as WiFi is really a standard expectation these days.

A great hotel

It's as close to the Grand Budapest Hotel as you will find these days. One minor quibble however. Check your tea bags as they were replaced with coffee which is fine unless you want a cup of tea. It would be good if they could have a variety of pillows in the room to start with. But minor stuff. Really enjoyed my stay.

Ideal and Stylish Location

The hotel has a style and ambience which is unusual and delightful. The only criticism I would make is that for those who enjoy a cigarette with a drink, the smoking facility does nothing to enhance the experience!

Great funky small hotel

Hotel is very different from the standard hotel. Art works all over the lobby is very interesting to view. It shows the owner's personal taste. Room is very comfortable.

Great location, wonderful setting

A unique hotel with so much art work to see close up. What a treat. We were upgraded to an apartment so had a huge room and amenities. Could have stayed longer. Great location right in the city

Great Hotel

We stayed at the Museum Hotel, Wellington in August this year. Very good location and earthquake proof. The foyer is amazing with lots of beautiful and some quirky art on display. We were greeted by very friendly and attentive staff. The rooms - we had a Premier twin studio room, was well appointed and very clean. It was fitted out with a mini kitchen and laundry which was all built into the cupboards making it very streamlined. There was an oven, microwave, fridge, sink, washing machine and all the crockery and cookware you would need on holiday. Would highly recommend this hotel. Got a good rate through this site.
