    Only stayed for one night for business' sake. The restaurant adjacent to the hotel was very nice with good service and great food. Contrarily, when I arrived at the hotel it wasn't very clear if I had arrived since there was no staff around; they were in the restaurant. As such, my first impression wasn't very welcoming and this affected the rest of my stay. Did have some difficulty sleeping which affected my business the following day. Definitely value for money although I the next time I will splurge for more private amenities.

    We stopped over wellington for ferry of our nz n&s islands self driving tour. So we needed a hotel which can provide free parking, close to the city centre and ferry. That's exactly the hotel has. Besides, it's roomy and quite clean with retro decor. Loved it

    We've used Shepherds Arms before, as driving-wise it's quick to get to the airport, off-street parking, reasonable food options close or downstairs, and we really just needed a bed for the night and shower before heading overseas in the morning. And that's what we got. Cheap-ish, though it could be cheaper, considering it was dusty and hadn't been properly cleaned in quite a while, obvious rubbish in corner, definitely showing it's age, but quaint and overall well overdue for a re-paint.

    Nice place”
    The hotel is a little way out of the centre of town uphill so not walkable for anyone with mobility problems as I am . There isn't a lot in the immediate vicinity . The bar in the hotel serves very nice food though more expensive than I expected . There are some other places to eat nearby. My room was a bit dated decor wise but had a lovely comfortable bed , sky TV and best of all a spa bath , luxury !! The staff were lovely and very helpful . The " breakfast " was a bowl of cereal and some tinned peaches either in your room or on a table on the landing, I don't know if this is usual in NZ but I found it to be a very strange arrangement being from the UK .

    Proprietor was very helpful , friendly, and always accessible. Secure off-street parking is provided. Hotel is very quaint, and provides food and beverages in a nice atmosphere.
    Hotel is charming but in need of repair to carpeting in the hallways (torn), and paint peeling on the bathroom ceiling. Continental breakfast was supposedly provided, but dishes and utensils were not available, and chambermaid wasn't around to ask for them. Breakfast was just fresh fruit, cereal & milk. It was relatively quiet. No A/C; internet not available in the room as advertised. Overall, we enjoyed our stay.

    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.
