Great Small Room

The hotel is in a well situated position for central city and the Westpac Stadium. Our room was very small but for only one night it suited us, it was very clean and well presented.

Thanks to a double promo deal,

Thanks to a double promo deal, pricing was superb for this hotel for my three night stay over the weekend. Its a wee way out of the centre of things, being north of Parliament in Thorndon, but very close to transport and there are various cafes and a supermarket nearby. The room was not the largest I've stayed in but was perfectly adequate with a smallish flat screen TV, comfortable bed and a desk. There's a bar and restaurant onsite, but I never sampled them, as I was getting specialty beers from the supermarket and stashing them in the refrigerator.

I didn't choose this hotel, the helpful online staff at Hotel Club found it for me as I told them I needed to catch the ferry the following day. Well done Hotel Club; it was just what we needed. A short cab ride to the ferry or railway, we arrived on the Overlander train and the cab ride was under $20, even less to go to the ferry next day. Staff were friendly and helpful.

The three of us found Kingsgate

The three of us found Kingsgate Hotel, Wellington suited our needs splendidly. It was ideally situated for a short walk to the city centre, bus and rail station, a tour of Parliament, the local supermarket and several restaurants and bars. The staff were friendly and courteous at all times and our rooms were excellent. Our dinner on the one night we dined in was superb. We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to others.

Just stayed one night and the room although small was okay. Had breakfast which was well presented, but dinner could have been a bit better. Check in and check out staff were very helpful and efficient, and waitresses and waiters were very good too.

The Hotel is ideally situated

The Hotel is ideally situated for attending events at the Westpac Stadium. The staff were very good and helpful and the facilities were also good. The only thing letting it down really are the rooms, which are quite noisy and the furnishings are less than average.
