Being central to the key areas of Welligton is a great benefit. The staff were pleasant and efficient and willing to assist when asked so that was imoortant. What could be improved is the condition of the ben linen as this was bordering on shabby. Also, while it rained during parts of our stay, the water coming from the guttering made it sound lke someone was having a shower right outside our window. When I checked I could see that the gutterig was full with small twings and leaves and if this was cleared would no doubt eliminate this altogether

Great location and facilities as always. Could have done without the late night (and early morning) sing along in courtyard below room though.

Kia Ora, thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are pleased that you liked our central location and all our facilities. We are really sorry to hear that you didn't get to rest at night time. Our courtyard is closed between 10pm and 7am, unfortunately, we are not able to lock the doors as it's a fire exit. Our night receptionist tries our best to keep track of the noise level and guests respecting the times, but can't do it always. We wish you would have spoken to our staff so we would have been able to keep the noise down. We still hope you will stay with us again the next time you visit Wellington! All the best, Nomads Capital

Excellent place to stay in Central Wellington. Comfortable beds, clean and warm. Excellent shared kitchen and lounge facilities. Couldn't be more handy to all the sites, walking distance to Te Papa, Michael Fowler Centre and the TSB Arena where WoW is held every year. Also fantastic access to the waterfront walkway with great bars/restaurants and shops like the Maori Arts Gallery.
