Fabulous Stay - We chose this hotel as it is near where our daughter lives in Newtown. We had the room with kitchenette, it was spacious and comfortable. The location was great, very handy to cafes and two great restaurants we ate at. Also, nice China/ glassware shop nearby and furniture / homeware shop Axe. Will be back. J Bogor- Taupo -

Wonderful. Only a few weeks old so VERY clean and fresh. Lovely bed and having a kitchenette was great too. Wonderful staff who helped me move a room when there was a glitch with my TV. Right across from Wellington hospital so very handy while my husband was in overnight. Joanne G - Wellington -
Comfortable quality stay. Spotlessly clean and modern facilities. Very comfortable and good quality furnishings. Staff lovely and nothing too difficult. Gayle R - Hawkes Bay -
Lovely to have the Nespresso machine in the room. However, would have liked some instructions. Luckily my daughter demonstrated for me when she picked me up. Loved the shower dome. Cut all condensation and no need for a noisy extractor running with the light. I was happy that I couldn't hear any sirens or helicopter noise in the room. Will definitely stay again.

Lovely service - made everything very easy! The rooms were very clean, with great amenities. Bed was super comfy! Would highly recommend to anyone staying in the Wellington CBD. Cannot say enough about how great the staff were! - Mobile60316272008
The rooms are modern, clean and have everything you need (including a pod coffee machine and full-length mirror). Loved the lamp with inbuilt phone charger on the bedside table. Booked the petite room and it was a lot more spacious than I expected. Great location too. Could walk top meetings, cafes, and Cuba St for dinner. Will definitely stay again. - Flyer54186761172
I was impressed at how clean it was. Nice assortment of cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery, which is good for simple self-catering as there is no restaurant attached to the hotel. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, but after a long day, it was nice to not have to go out to eat. It was also very quiet at night, which was a surprise as usually I've always heard city noises throughout the night. And being able to cast so I could watch what I wanted to watch was a nice bonus. It was a good business stay. - maniania2016
Compact room, which is perfect. I don't need heaps of space. All the mod cons. Nice TV. Comfy bed. Smoothest check in/out process ever. Affordable. And parking included! Crazy good. - Phil Murphy
Steps away from my favourite bars and restaurants. Rooms are immaculately clean and have everything you need. Reception staff are wonderfully polite and helpful. Background noise is what you would expect for such a central hotel but they’ve done a good job with the soundproof and the noise didn’t disturb me. I’ve stayed here twice and would come back every time. - Jemma
I was staying on business. The room was small as advertised but was all I needed, and all facilities were crisp and clean. The service was efficient and friendly. The room had all the essentials including USB and wireless charging points. This accommodation represented solid value for money. I would gladly stay here again. - James Robinson
The location of this hotel was great. Being right off of Cuba street meant we had access to loads of great food, bars, buses, and shops. The rooms were also extremely clean, and the staff did a great job of cleaning the rooms and replenishing coffees and teas while we were out around town. The staff was extremely helpful and kind as well. - Kyle Johnson
