This is our 3rd trip to NZ and stay a week in self catering each time. While it doesn't tick all the boxes it is the best self catering so far in the city. Location is excellent on Lambton Quay, bus stop opposite the front door. Parking out the back was expensive at $15 a day, so you need to factor that into your daily rate. Also if you have mobility problems the car park overflow is hard work. Front desk staff are some of the friendliest in the city, really nice and always able to help. We stayed for a week in a 1 bedroom which was spacious, very clean, well laid out, modern and had all we needed. On the downside it felt like a dark cave facing the back garden wall. The air-conditioning isn't air conditioning as we know it, rather a gadget in the lounge room blowing coolish air, this didn't lower the temperature in the apartment just a 5ft radius around the box, the bedroom had a fan. We asked for a second duvet as with my pregnancy I like to wiggle, the maid took the second duvet from us after night 1 and didn't return it. NZ hotels have a credit card charge, which you don't see in many other countries, you need to factor this into your daily rate or pay in cash. Gym was basic, you might want to supplement with the council gym on the waterfront. Bed was too floppy in middle and uncomfortable after a few nights. I was happy overall, it's hard to find self catering accommodation and even harder this time of year with music and sporting events. For us location was important, as was washer, dryer and space so it ticked all those boxes, the happy staff was a nice bonus. I think the internet must have changed since some reviews as it was free wifi which is excellent! Happy overall.
