What a lovely and quirky hotel! Such fun to stay there! The rooms are interestingly decorated as is the reception/bar area! The location is fabulous with Te Papa across the road and the excellent bar and shopping hub of Wellington a 5 minutes walk away! Would defo go back!!

Average at best
Location and the art but the hotel was dated and unclean. Staff did respond to our concerns and so service was reasonable
Think the hotel is overpriced. Would not return

I know it seems petty, but crappy tv channel quality and no free wifi really does peg the score back. It's 2016 not 2001! Great location. Loved the bed, and the shower. I just expect the little details to be there to give it a 5 star rating.

The art, the room, 24 hour reception
Impressed that our room was ready early, so we were able to check in when we arrived (around 10.30am). Overall, hotel is great, however the gym is tiny and not well set up.

Wonderful Wellington
Beautifully decorated, friendly & helpful staff, great city location.
Had a great stay at the hotel. Loved the "wackiness" of the furniture & decor!! The special 'smokers' area was a treat.
