Gourmet Stay is easy to find, brilliantly located and good value for money. Cuba St is nearby and the rest of town easily accessible on foot. The room was clean and warm, the beds comfortable. The continental breakfast provided good variety and excellent Bircher. The staff (Holly) was friendly and welcoming. The only things missing were bedside lamps (Room 7).

I stayed in a ground floor room with kitchenette, dining table, lounge, en suite. One queen and one single bed in the sleeping area. Quite cosy, though I needed an extra blanket. Fortunately as only using one bed I was able to pinch the quilt from the other bed, as there were no spare blankets in the room. The lack...

I use tripadvisor to plan all my trips and I think this is probably the first time I've been left disappointed. It's not that bad per se, just decidedly average, but it's overall score, and rank, is very surprising - particularly considering the price. The room smelt damp and musty when we arrived.

Lovely warm service at this character-rich small but perfectly formed hotel located in a quiet and convenient backstreet of Wellington's main city streets. Our room was clean, spacious, light-filled and had everything we needed. Breakfast was yum, good coffee, cosy enough to feel like fellow guests are not strangers. Definitely my new go-to for Wellington accommodation!
