Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a great stay at 10Gilmer Apartments, it was very central, reasonably priced and the rooms were all we needed, clean and easily accessible. I recommend getting the parking as it is right next to hotel and very close for luggage movements. Highly recommended.

The owners clearly take pride in their hotel and are maintaining it to a very high standard for their price class. The room was very tidy, the fittings modern, and there was a nice attention to detail - e.g. the gingerbread kiwi instead of the stale shortbread biscuit found in other similar hotels. Keep it up!

Stayed here 3 nights to have a look around Wellington. The room was substantial, kitchen area, bathroom/shower, lounge/TV section and bed with large double and a single. More space than the bedsit I lived in for 5 years in London. Clean, well maintained and more than I needed. A great bonus was the washing machine (with washing powder) so I could wash my clothes after nearly 2 weeks travel. Minor problems were my fault for not reading the check in email early enough. I nearly missed the check-in as reception closed at 5 on Saturday - they were very helpful on email and I checked in ok from the bus sending my ID and payment info. Secondly the hotel is behind the main Street and best accessed via the mall they tell you on the check in email. They also tell you which floor to get off but if you don't read it you can go up to the wrong hotel, and get lost. I'd read the email properly ...!

Have stayed here before but this visit was disappointing. The bathroom was dirty with excessive mould around the shower doors.
When paying close $230 per night you do not expect this.
The rest of the room was good.
Room service was very late in the day 3.30pm popped back to drop shopping to room and the room had the cleaner just starting so had to drop and go.
The location is good and would stay again if they sort these issues.

I needed a hotel for a couple of nights when I was working in Wellington.
While it may lack harbour views it certainly makes up for it in location. Situated minutes from The Terrace and Lampton Quay.
The room was so so clean with a good size television.
Friendly staff were welcoming and extremely helpful when I asked advice on local restaurants, nearest liqour Store and supermarket was.
Super good wifi was free and the bathroom amenities were really top class.

I was able to negoiate a late check out for a small fee which was very much apreciated. They also offer what must be the cheapest carpark onsite but you do need to book in advance.

It was also very reasuring that all the staff are fully vacinated at this hotel.

This was everything we needed. We felt really lucky that we were able to have such a quality comfortable stay at a time the city was really busy and accomodation was at a premium. We arrived at 11am knowing that our room probably wouldn’t be ready. We got a lovely warm greeting and the woman on the desk explained that our room wasn’t ready but offered to hold our bags for us. She gave us a map and explained how to get to Lambton Quay. When we returned we got our bags and our key and headed to our room. There was little explanation from the desk about services etc, but we travel reasonably frequently so didn’t really need that. The room was small but had everything we needed. We had seen in previous reviews that the rooms were noisy due to city noise, we didn’t find this at all we felt that if you want to be in the central city then you should expect city noise. The room was clean and well appointed. Being an apartment it had good facilities including washer/drier, hob and cutlery and crockery. The bed was comfortable and the tv was a good size. The heater worked well which was a bonus given we arrived the day of a cold snap. Yes the room was dark because of the fact it is surrounded by high rise office blocks, but again completely expected if you want to be in the central city. The lighting in the room was really good so the lack of natural light was not really an issue. We only stayed two nights so didn’t use the available gym but it was nice to know it was an option. Because of it’s handy location there were plenty of places to go and eat. I didn’t try it, but I noted that you could get Uber eats if you really wanted delivery to your room. The servicing of the room was really good. We felt that the images on the website are a good representation of what you get. We liked the fact the it is in a quiet street just back from the main drag which makes it easy for drop off and pick up. It is easy to access the main road via either Plimmer steps or through the lift at Wilson car park. We were intrigued by the fact that the long corridors and wood panelling and mirrors gave a cruise ship feel to the overall facility, but we quite liked that and once we stepped into our room the decor was bright and fresh. I have to say we were very pleasantly surprised and would definitely stay here again. We would recommend this to anyone looking for a centrally located well appointed place to stay.

Stayed for a couple of nights and found everything we needed in the apartment - it is small but perfectly formed, very clean and well kitted out. Everything was provided and it all worked. The location could not be better - they even gave detailed and useful instructions for a short cut to Lambton Key through a nearby car park. Good value.

We had two nights in wellington and chose the apartments for their location being a short walk to the main shopping areas. Lovely friendly and helpful staff who gave us all the info we needed including the short cut to town. However the downside was we were opposite the car parks which was noisy and whilst we had a studio it was no bigger than the average hotel room with extras squeezed in. On the plus side there was a washer drier which was very welcomed on the minus the room was small (much more so than other studios we have stayed in and so was the bed) and there was no air conditioning so we had the window open which didn’t help with the noise. Basically a good location for shops but don’t expect a large room.

We were running a bit late to check in before the 6pm close of reception, but the GM was kind and helpful and assured us that we will be fine to check in. And he was right! Very easy and helpful check in process, and the place is located in the central of Wellington, while being away from the hustle and bustle so the room was quiet and peaceful. Perfect for what we needed for our one night stay just to rest after a couple of hectic days of traveling. The room was neat, well equipped with a kettle, microwave, toaster, hobs, dishes and tea towels, and we even received welcome cookies upon check in. All in all, a great, clean, modern place to stay and close to everything. Will stay again!

I discovered the Gilmer Apartments some 6 or 7 years ago and found this the perfect property for my needs. I love the central location, a quick walk to Lampton Quay and easy walk to the Arena, Te Papa, the waterfront etc. The best way to explore Wellington is on foot as everything is so close (this obviously dependent on your age and fitness) there's a good hill to the apartments but not a bad thing as I always overeat in WLG!! Two supermarkets are close by if you're wanting to self cater. The rooms have everything you need including a washing machine which is great for me as I always travel with my running/ gym or pool gear. I love the extra benefit of being able to use the local gym when staying at Gilmer(*book directly on the property website) the gym facilities and classes are fantastic.
The icing on the cake would be a coffee machine in the rooms but local cafes are also close. I don't find the apartments noisy if anything quite quiet as you're off the main roads, perhaps I was there on the day that the rubbish truck wasn't scheduled as per Sharon D's review, but rubbish does have to be collected!!!!!! On our last stay our room was upgraded as there was an issue with the door key which was dealt with quickly plus we were able to check in early due to an early flight into WLG which was a lovely surprise. We would have been happy to leave our bags at reception and come back at 2pm. I have stayed in their QN, King and family rooms which are all great.

Hello Michelle, we do not have smart TV's. We do have HDMI cables connected to all TV's to the Sky box so I wonder whether this may work, however, this is untested.

Answer from Rachel T

You need to let them know in advance that you will arriving so late. They can leave the key to your apartment in a lock box by the door, they then text you a code to unlock the box to get the envelope with your room key and swipe card to get into the lobby area. Hope that helps.
