10/10 Exceptional

Spacious and Convenient
The room was a good size including a kitchenette, with a modernised bathroom. There was a small electric heater but it provided sufficient heating on a cold night. Very convenient to catch the ferry next morning and to Johnsonville shopping centre. Only minor criticism is that the bedspreads were rather old and marked and could do with being replaced. Would definitely stay here again

Summer travel
Beds are good enough for 6 people, tidy and clean. Kitchen has microwave but no cook tub or oven. Toilet and bathroom looks new and clean but no ventilators so have to open window when showering and only has liquid soap there, no shampoos. Plenty of towels. Upstairs are very hot, have to use two fans on and still hot, window is there but I didn't opened it because afaid of insects to come in when sleeping 😴

A good choice when in Wellington for business
This is maybe the 4th or 5th time we've stayed here and it hasn't changed much over the years. The main reasons that we keep returning are 1) The location. We have multiple appointments in all directions within Wellington and the Capital Gateway is centrally located to everywhere. 2) Easy access. It's a minute off SH1 so very easy to get in an out of. 3) Onsite restaurant that serves decent hearty food and reasonable prices. All of the above make for a very convenient place to stay when in Wellington for business. It ain't the Ritz but it's comfortable enough.
