Nice new renovated bathroom, clean and warm, comfy beds, good to have a coin laundry on site. Kitchen a bit dated but clean and you can renovate everything at once. Surprised at the Wellington high prices across all locations though compared to other parts of NZ

Lovely hotel close to town

Pros: The view, even if it was only the motorway and valley, it was interesting.
Cons: double glazing would kill a bit of the traffic noise, but it didn't keep us awake at night.
Location: Close to town and the ferry.
Great place to stay nice and close to town, prices in the restaurant were very reasonable, and no charge for parking
