Break away

We enjoyed our stay at Wellesley. It was very handy to what we wanted to do, the botannical gardens, cable car and waterfront. A lovely old building with lots of character, a beautiful staircase. The room was a bit small, but very clean and we would have loved a view and a window so we could have fresh air. The staff were very nice and helpful.

Quiet central hotel

Very much an English old world charm in this historic building. Ceilings are huge. Its central but is very quiet being situated in a back street. Do not look for modern amenities such as spas or gyms. Breakfast was excellent and good value for money.

A Little Gem!

This is my second stay at Wellesley Boutique Hotel and having discovered it I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The staff are just wonderful, nothing too much trouble. The rooms are perfect........comfortable beds, even a pillow menu. The bathroom, wow, gorgeous black & white, double basins, claw foot lovely deep bath with separate shower, quiet location. Then there's the lounge with a beautiful open fire place, the only disappointment was that I visited in Summer. The dining room is lovely and has a small but very good menu, don't go past the slow roasted duck leg. There is also inexpensive parking directly opposite. Would I stay again and would I recommend, have done both and happy to do so.

Charming and Historic

This is a charming and historic hotel, with only a small amount of rooms. A period building built in 1881 as a Gentlemans club that has been restored, and returned to its former glory with nice decor, pictures, furniture even down to the old elevator with the 'scissors' gated doors. The dining restaurant is not open every evening, but the nearby wharf area has plenty to choose from. I didn't have a car so unaware of the parking options, except the parking wardens kept me entertained during breakfast booking all the cars out front ! Definately a great place top stay.

Okay, but wouldn't visit again

There on a business trip, and their 'free internet' is limited to 50MB. Sorry guys - but that's not free internet - I burned through that in about 20 minutes downloading my email from the day. The room was nice, location fine, staff lovely. But didn't like it from a business perspective as one of the few things that I really require when travelling is a strong decent internet connection - and if I'd have used their connection I probably would've racked up $200 worth of charges. Ended up walking around the city until I found somewhere that was $20 for 24 hours and sitting on the street to do my work :\

Great central location

Very friendly and helpful staff. The bed was good quality and very comfortable, the room was clean and had everything. (Except a plug for the kettle, had to use the bathroom plug!) We also enjoyed a lovely meal at the restaurant, Maginnitys.

Needs work

No modern amenities such as digital tv or iPod dock. Top sheet stained and no extra blankets provided. No mini bar price list. Free mason influence was spooky. Not what I would expect from a 4 star hotel.
