A few surprises
Great find on a rugby weekend although a fair walk to the stadium. Good to book a car park in advance and it was easy to access. No fridge in the room. Breakfast included in the room rate was appreciated. Comfy bed though an extra extra blanket would have been nice. Room small but adequate.

We loved our stay in the Junior Suite
We really enjoyed our 3 night stay at the CQ Comfort. I took my 3 teenage daughters for a few days away, and the location was perfect for shopping and Te Papa. The room was a great size, was warm and clean, and both bedrooms had en suite toilets and showers. We enjoyed the express breakfast, and were particularly pleased to see gluten free bread at the toaster (and no one attempting to surcharge us for it!). The staff were all pleasant and helpful, and the only noise at night was caused by the weather. I would definitely recommend this suite and hotel.

Highly recommended
I was in town to perform 3 shows at the nearby comedy club VKs. CQ was maybe a 4-minute walk away so that was great. The room itself wasn't big or flash but for someone in my situation, it was perfect, ideally located and great value for money. Staff were great. Plenty of xlnt eateries nearby and Cubs St is a blast.
