The hotel is located right in the middle of the major tourist and commercial area, so we could move around Wellington mostly on foot. The room was comfortable and reasonably well kitted. Not many dine-in options but there are good restaurants nearby. Staff are very helpful with recommendations on how to move about town. I forgot some valuables behind while checking out but the staff got them shipped safely to my next destination. Thanks for that!

Very close to shops and the waterfront. Bed wasn't too comfortable its too soft and we found out the next day the fridge in the room wasn't working. Then we have threw away our cheese and dips. Reported to the front desk they said there is no maintenance man working on Sunday. But I would say aren't they have to check everything is working in the room before they put people there.
