Quite disappointed in this hotel. We have stayed here twice before only this time is was really quite grubby-The bathroom especially. I know it is difficult to clean corners of white tiles. Maybe supply the services staff with some exit Mould or bleach to give it a good going over. The shower is a bit difficult to use but once...

Oh Quest, this property could be so good, but simply isn't! It's tired, tired, tired and in dire need of a refresh. Ok, lets start with the bad, and there are quite a few. First impressions count. Check in was efficient, if slightly dis-interested. The property is in a lovely heritage building, but this shouldn't be stopping minor maintenance tasks...

The apartment is old and the couches a bit worn out. Bathroom doors dont have any locks so a bit uncomfortable when living with family. Front desk staff were exceptional and helpful. Thanks to them for all the help.

Stayed one night in a two bedroom unit prior to catching the Cook Straight Ferry. Everything about the heritage hotel was wonderful except for the street noise when we had the windows open. This hotel has no air conditioning, and so we had to open all the many windows to keep the place cool enough to sleep. We even needed...

The Quest Wellington is very well located for central Wellington experiences. An older building with each room / suite tailored to the configuration of the spaces, but most rooms having a larger floor area than perhaps most more moderns and cookie-cutter sterile hotels. Not too noisy at night for it's central location. Helpful and attentive Reception.

Very friendly front desk staff. Apartment was spacious and well laid out. Shower door needed adjustment to keep the water out of main bathroom. Cutlery numbers did not match nor did numbers of wine glasses. But everything to see in Wellington is on the doorstep.

2 nights. Only good thing is the location for the CBD. Grotty decor, mismatched bedside lamps and lamp covers were broken. Paint peeling off walls, bathroom door handle broken, dusty fittings, poor paint job and crappy colour, one key tag didn't work the door after hours.......

My 8th floor one-bedroom apartment was spacious with 2 Db beds & a very large bathroom. Overall, it was very comfortable, particularly my bed. However the TV remote didn't work & had to be replaced. Then on my first of a 2 night stay, on returning to the apartment after dinner, I found that neither ceiling light in the bedroom...

We were two families sightseeing around Wellington for a few days so I was able to see both apartments. On the whole, ours was very tired. The curtain was hanging off its hooks, there was a strong residual smell of smoke and we were on the highway side so found it very loud. The apartment was also very hot and...
