  • 10.0Exceptional


    We decided to stay here for the night prior to our early morning flight the next day, and were so impressed at how seamless it was. The hotel is literally on top of the airport terminal so once you park your car and enter the terminal it's all so easy and stress-free. Check in was quick, the room was spacious and clean and QUIET, the bed was comfortable and the bathroom excellent. The restaurant looked good but we had already eaten by the time we checked in. I would highly recommend this hotel for a good night's rest before an early flight out of Wellington.

    Average service

    Have stayed before and the hotel is great. Perfect for an early flight and rooms are fantastic. Was really underwhelmed this time with the service. Reception staff weren’t rude but not at all friendly and had to wait for over 10 minutes to check in and out. Will stay again for convenience and comfort
