Booked here as part of a long weekend with girlfriends for shopping, fun, sightseeing (my first visit to Wellington) and dining. The apartment complex was one block back from the Queens Wharf area, with a huge array of fine dining restaurants to comfy casual ones. Around the corner there was a subway, and turn left out of the lobby, 20metres walk you are on one of the main shopping streets Lambton Quay. The high end department store of Kirkcaldie & Stains occupies the same block as the apartment, so lovely lovely shopping there, also a small boutique food hall and coffee lounge too. Key sightseeing venues such as Parliament buildings and the bee hive were a medium paced 5mins away. Te papa museum was a flat walkable 20-25mins along the waterfront or by city roads.
We booked a spacious 2 bedroom apartment, full kitchen, dining table, twin beds with flat screen tv, and a double bedroom. Housekeeping was fantastic and daily replenishment of toiletries and kitchen cleaning materials. We required an extra set of towels, and within 3 minutes of our phone call they were knocking at our door with our towels, very prompt. 14th floor apartment was clean and tidy, although I would have to comment the bathroom was small in comparison to the generous size of the apartment - and an extra shelf on the wall would have been welcomed with all our toiletries/makeup etc.
Management services was of a very high standard, Sebstain in particular provided us with first class service, lobby area welcoming, and check in was very quick and efficient. We arrived at 11pm after reception hours, but the booking service provided us with a combination pin that accessed our key cards in a locked box at the covered entrance way, our envelope was clearly identified and was an easy system to use.
My only criticism would be, and this is indicative of most hotels in NZ, there was no free internet service, although throughout Wellington city centre, hot spots were many. Cost for internet 500mb 2hrs $6; 1gb 24hrs $15; 3gb 24hrs $25; 5gb 7days $40; 25gb 28days $65; 50gb 30days $90. Reception did advise they were due to change providers in the next month or two.
Found complex fitted all our needs and would stay here again, close to everything and comfortable, although decor was perhaps a bit plain, but that's just cosmetic. Cost for 3 nights $677nzd, 2bedroom, 4 people. An extra $100 for check out at 8pm at night which we thought was well priced.
