8/10 Very Good

Good Accommodations, but don't get a street unit
We were very happy to find these accommodations at the last minute, as our previous reserved accommodations were sorely lacking on many aspects and we felt unsafe there. The only draw-back to getting the last unit was that is was on the street. As a result, there were times late at night that discussions on the street were loud and clear, as well as, the gate to the complex opened/closed at our unit.

The property was good for our needs. However when we arrived the beds were not arranged as requested. I made an international phone call to the property when they left me a message at home asking for the bed configuration. They were willing to change it the next morning because they couldn’t do it that evening because of our late arrival. We just used it the way it was due to only staying one more night.

Very nice stay for 4 people
They were able to accomodate an early check in. They were very responsive with e-mails when I had questions about early check in and parking. The room was clean and spacious for 4 people. it was a quick 1 night stay so I didn't explore the property. My room was on the first floor and the ceilings are low in our apartment so that particular room is not ideal for a tall person. I was afraid we would hear parking lot noise or noise from people above us be we did not at all.

Location was perfect for someone going into Wellington hospital. Room was facing main road and very noisy with helicopters, ambulance sirens and traffic. Not much sleep. Secure parking for vehicle at xtra cost. Room very clean, tidy and small.

Close to hospital (right across the road), on bus route. Modern, clean spacious room with a supermarket and places to eat just round the corner. Would stay here again.
