Positive Reviews

On-site parking for all guests

Guests found that having on-site parking available during their stay is a big bonus, especially in central Wellington. It is usually quite hard to find cheap off-site parking in the area. Guests also enjoyed having peace of mind when travelling with their own vehicle, as the on-site parking is secure.

Friendly service

Guests were impressed with the staff's professional attitude and warm service offered at this lodge. The friendly staff make every guest's stay comfortable and well worth the visit, as they are ready to assist guests whenever help is needed.

Convenient location

This property is situated in a location that makes it easy for guests to get around by foot, which was certainly a positive for most guests. There are several interesting attractions in the surrounding area, as well as restaurants and cafes within close walking distance.

Negative Reviews

Noisy at times

Guests found that accommodations can get quite loud if most of the rooms are occupied. The buildings are quite old, and do not offer much soundproofing between guest rooms. This might be a problem if you're a light sleeper, so be sure to bring a pair of earplugs along.

Outdated interiors

The interiors of the lodge, hotel and motel could use some updating according to guests. The furniture is quite old, some of which need repairing, while the decor looks tired.

Some rooms are cramped

While guests found their stay pleasant and relaxing, there have been complaints regarding the size of some of the guest rooms. Depending on what room you chose, you might be wishing you upgraded to a larger sized room. The budget rooms are quite small and are more suited to a solo traveller.
