Reviewed 15 July 2013

We recently hired Hotel St George as a meeting space for a small seminar we were hosting.
We couldn't have been happier with the space and facilities.
Everything worked first time, the kitchen space was clean and tidy and on a cold blustery day the room was warm and cosy.
Thanks very much for having us - we'll be back!

I loved staying at st georges hotel. It is way better than any hostel,great value for money and probably the best location you could ask for in wellington. Yong and bruce on reception are friendly and helpful.the common areas are kept clean and you never struggle for room for cooking or crockery and pans. If you are staying a few months in Wellington and dont want to pay the bond for an apartment / go through the hassel of searchinh this is the place for you.

We regularly book the Boardroom for our business meetings and are very happy with the facilities and supplementary services provided during our stay. The cost is also very reasonable and we thoroughly recommend Hotel St George to all prospective users/guests.

Dear Tania - Thank you for taking the time to let others know about our conference and meeting facilities. Here at the Hotel St George we have an affordable option for a self catered meeting/conference/boardroom. Tea and Coffee making facilities, chilled water, whiteboard and flip charts are all included in a most competitive price.

Hotel Saint George is the perfect place to meet people from all over the world staying in a nice street of Wellington right in the CBD. This accommodation is calm, and not noisy at all. The rooms are quite big, cold during the summer and warm during the winter.
Saint George is also really secured.
The only negative point is that people often forget to tidy the kitchen after lunch and dinner.

Dear Marie - Thank you for writing us a review. Yes the kitchen is often an issue when others don't clean as they go and then forget to come back and wash their dishes, but all-in-all most are pretty good. Take care and thanks again - Bruce.

I stayed at the St George for almost 3 months and loved it. Firstly its location is second to none, you are a couple of minutes from the water front, Cuba st, Courtenay Place, CBD, Botanical gardens, shops, cafes etc. its all right there! The rooms are clean, with options for shared people or own bathroom. The kitchen and dining room are huge so never too busy but always a friendly face to chat with. The linen room is cheaper than most in Wellington and I never had to que for my washing or drying. You always feel secure because of the swipe key system you need to access the building. Add to this free pool, table tennis, books, dartboard, local discounts and super friendly staff then you’d be hard pushed to find a better location than the St George. Oh and the Beatles stayed here in the 60’s, check out the big picture of them in the lobby!

I stayed @ St Geroge the last 5 months. If you are looking to stay in Wellington and work but don't want the hassle of a lease or finding furniture, you can't beat the location for the price! Met some cool people, lounge area and kitchen it never too packed and always clean, and Yong at the front desk is super helpful and friendly!! A mix of students, backpackers and workers. Wouldn't be leaving if my visa wasn't up! Thanks guys!

I travel New Zealand quite a lot and have used backpacker hotels extensively throughout the years. I would say St. George is the cream of the crop of all backpacker places at least in New Zealand for the following reasons:

1. Top notch security - I stayed in the top floors and to reach my room I had to swipe your access card three times to reach the room and finally you have to use a key. I have never seen anything like this especially in backpacker places where theft is quite common. Also, you will find 24/7 security cameras installed in the common areas, particularly near fridges where food theft happens.

2. Location - Right smack in the heart of Welly you are walking distance to almost everything so you don't have to spend too much on transportation costs.

3. Real Beds - Usually in backpacker hotels, they use bunk beds that are sometimes quite hard and unstable. Here in St. George, they have clean comfortable beds with mattresses.

4. Friendly and responsive staff (and guests) - There is a family atmosphere in the hotel where every issue is addressed in a timely manner.

5. Good value for money - Might not be the cheapest place in the vicinity but I believe in the maxim "you get what you pay for"

Thank you to Bruce and Yong for the great accomodation!

Room Tip: Pick the 7th or 8th floor rooms, much more quiet
