The room was shabby, springs had gone in the bed. Not a comfortable night at all.

Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
It was close to a conference I was attending. And inexpensive. It’s old and rundown. I sat on the floor of my room and as my hand slid across the carpet, two hairs stuck to it—a short dark one and a long blonde one. Upon closer inspection, the carpet really needed a good vacuuming.

2 night stay in Wellington
We had room 7 in the main house. It could be a great room but needs a complete refurbishment. The bed was so soft you just rolled into the middle, so not the best nights sleep. The weather was good so did not have to stop in the room. There was a main lounge with a kitchen where you could make a cup of tea or coffee. We didn't pay a lot of money for the room but it was one of the worse we had stayed in over the 4 weeks we were travelling.

Spacious room close to everything
The staff were all helpful and friendly, the room was large but dated but had everything you needed. Laundry facilities were free which was great since we were on a 3week trip. Located close to downtown but also close to Otago University.
