Paul S. Solo travelers United Kingdom, February 21, 2015
Fine for short stay

Location, helpful staff
The hotel is in a hood location with one access point via an elevator on to one of Wellingtons main shopping thoroughfares. The lifts are one of the main issues as there was often a number of people waiting. Rooms are fine, if a little on the smaller side but perhaps looking a little dated.
