Location is great, although be prepared that if its raining there is a dash along Tory Street that is not undercover.
Ask for a room at the front, as the back rooms look straight into a concrete wall of the car park building.
Don't expect the reception staff to be pleasant and friendly - they are not.
We changed room upon arrival as we were not happy with 2 nights looking out on the concrete wall, the room we ended up with was ok, not very clean and the previous guests food and bottle of milk in the fridge was not required.
Room wasn't serviced until very late in the day (5pm) right when we were trying to get freshened up etc to go out for the evening, this was annoying.
Mould around bath/shower, bathroom sink took forever for water to drain away, not pleasant when brushing teeth etc. door wouldn't open fully as washing machine behind door stuck out too much. No spare roll of toilet paper available we had to ask for it when we ran out. Rubbish, flannels, dirt and dust all down the back of washing machine, obviously cleaners never clean behind it and just let things get dropped.
Leather couch looks good but it "deflates" when sat on so is not comfy, leather dining chairs ripped and wobbly, pen drawings on walls, stains on carpets. Don't be fooled by the flashy looking mod-cons you see in their pictures.
Room was very noisy with shared door to next door room, and wind whistles loudly thru filthy deck and ranch sliders.
For price we paid, we could have had a top knotch room at various other great hotels in Wellington and with decent service, and if I could have canceled our room and got $ back straight after checking in - I would have. (I did ask and express my disappointment)
I won't be returning or recommending this to anyone.
Such a shame for a great location.
