We stayed at this location about two years ago before it was the Kingsgate. We were fortunate to obtain a good deal which included the accommodation for three nights and breakfasts. The hotel is very clean and the staff most pleasant. Some of the bathroom fittings are a little outdated, but they work so there was no problem. Having recently become a iPad user I was keen to try the free wifi. The receptionist was very helpful showing this elderly lady how to get started. We found the breakfast more than adequate with a good range of juice, tinned fruits and cereals. The hot buffet was of a good standard also. The evening meals were reasonably priced with a varied menu. We found it very easy to walk to the CBD and Te Papa. It was necessary for us to get to Lower Hutt so the close proximity of bus stops was also a bonus. I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to any traveller.
