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.
