Nice place. Lots of street noise

Good location for catching the ferry. Nice pub at hotel.
Street noise was bad. Good thing I travel with earplugs. Easy walk to most things in town. Right near the Botanic Garden.

Parking, Location, Cost
Although we were late in arriving, due to a late ferry crossing (although we did advise by phone), we had to wait for a member of staff to attend the reception. The building seems to be well overdue refurbishment (light fittings, heater - very suspect). When we attended the breakfast area at 8.15am, there was no food left. Although the maid did arrange for cereal and tinned fruit to be supplied to the room.

Great hotel!

Great rooms, great food and great location - as we travelling back home to Cambridge next day - so close to motorway - a great location!
A great experience - the second time we have stayed at Shepherds Arm Hotel and won't be the last time!

Plenty cheap and better out there

Location, free car parking, Being above a good bar
The place is in great need of refurbishment, mouldy ceiling in Bathroom, light bulbs needing replaced, toilet brush with faeces on it, had to ask for more toilet paper as only half a roll in toilet, 3 milks in fridge strange for a couple, plunger coffee supplied, no plunger. Biggest dissapointment was breakfast. Got to where the "breakfast" was being served and there was two types of cereals and milk. This is not a breakfast that can be advertised, also to add insult to injury I had someone knocking on my door at twenty to ten looking for the empty bowl from alleged breakfast. Why she could not wait till I checked out I cannot understand. I do not recommend this hotel to anyone there are plenty of well priced hotels in Wellington, this was more like an overpriced backpackers. I think a backpackers would be cleaner and probably a better breakfast!

Spacious comfortable suite

Comfortable bed, spa tub, away from other guests
Need true front desk staff. Never manned, always had to go to ale house to get service. Enquired regarding breakfast on first evening. Told it would be delivered in A.M.. Never received. Enquired on second evening, was informed to have these arrangements made up by night manager. Made out ok after that. Suite 14 shower needs a good cleaning. Mold above bath and on walls. Toilet drips all night. Seems some attention to detail is lacking. Not sure if this applies to the entire hotel or just the two remote king suites. Overall, a nice place, just need to employ hotel staff that are not bar staff as well.
