Wonderful in Welly
I had a 2 night stay and found this an excellent location. Huge room included full kitchen facilities and a patio. I loved having the option to pop over to the New World supermarket and eat in the hotel. It is also just around the corner from Te Papa and a short walk to the city. It will be my Welly choice from now on.

Would stay again
This was a great place to stay overnight while in Wellington for work. Close to the waterfront and a great supermarket with lots of dinner options. The host was very helpful and the rooms beautifully clean with everything I needed. Only down side was the howling wind waking me in the night due to a weather event, and the hotel cops the wind down by the waterfront.Hardly their fault as they can’t control the weather!

Check in was easy but this is not a hotel as you would expect so you have to ring a bell and then advise the manager who you are etc.
