We stayed two nights and enjoyed our cozy and clean room, and the charm of the establishment. We were treated kindly by all and would definitely stay again at this unique and well located spot in Wellington.

A very well priced hotel with excellent CBD location for the visitor. Clean and functional. Perhaps a little old-fashioned in décor but the refurbishment underway will address this. Ideal for a relaxing stay in Wellington and convenient to all CBD amenities..
