My partner and I stayed here on a recent trip to Wellington and thought it was ok - I'd probably give the hotel itself a 3.5 stars. We got a great deal for two nights on Wotif which included free buffet breakfast and free Wifi which was fantastic value. The hotel is in a great location, really close to town and Cuba Street and within walking distance to a supermarket and lots of cafes. The hotel is quite old and dated (actual keys instead of key cards, stainless steel shower bottom); however, it was clean and had all the basic amenities. The staff were all really friendly and happy to help with calling cabs. The bed was comfy but the pillows were a bit soft. The buffet breakfast was great and there was quite a good selection available.
We would probably stay here again if we were to get another great deal.
