    Shower pressure: 10/10 :-) Favourite room: Kitchen. Would not recommend to anyone with toddlers or elderly family members, due to staircase. For us, however it was fantastic (7 of us - aged between 10 & 51)! Handy to all the fun Wellington City happenings (so don't expect a "quiet" location either, folks). Even treated to a fireworks display from the second floor balcony on our last night. B-) Very cool.

  • Super character-filled house

    Super character-filled house. Location couldn't be better for a Wellington stay. There are steepish internal stairs to bedrooms so not ideal for the less spritely. Otherwise perfect for families and groups.
