Location is fabulous being on Cuba Street, surrounded by fabulous cafes and restaurants and walking distance to the main tourist attractions - Te Papa, War Memorial etc. Bus Stops handy too! I easily caught a local bus from just around the corner from the hotel to the Weta Cave and Workshop for $3.50 which dropped me about 500m from the Weta Cave.
The room itself was pretty basic but had pretty much everything I needed. I requested a quiet room and that is what I got. There are tea and coffee making facilities but no fridge (which was a disappointment). The bed was comfy and the shower pressure was bliss. You also get free access to the pool and spa which is part of the Quality Hotel next door. The room cost was incredibly reasonably priced for Wellington (I did a lot of searching an comparison) and I believe it includes breaky if you book through the hotel website (I booked through Expedia and it was not offered to me).
The rate includes free wifi which was easy to access and very fast.
The staff were friendly and welcoming. I arrived early and they put my bags into the storage locker so I able to head out exploring straight away. I also stored it again at the end of my stay.
Overall, I would definitely stay again and book through their website rather than a 3rd party website (then I understand I would get the free breaky).
