The best of both worlds

Four-and-a-half-star-rated Quest on Johnston is a hotel that has all the benefits of an apartment – or is it an apartment that has the benefits of a hotel – either way, get set for a very comfortable stay.

Choose from a studio or a one or two-bedroom apartment or one of their very popular three-bedroom penthouses, which are great for both long and short stays.

As you’d expect from an apartment, each room has a fully-equipped kitchen with cooktop, bar fridge, toaster, kettle and microwave and laundry facilities making them perfect for short and long stays – and the stuff of dreams for those on the road.

Do a load of washing and head to Moore Wilson's, Wellington’s equivalent of an always-on farmers market, to stock up on some breakfast supplies. Moore Wilson’s orange juice, a loaf locally-made sourdough bread and a jar of Fix & Fogg peanut butter come recommended.

If you like to start your day with a workout, Quest has an on-site gym or head to nearby Awhi Yoga & Wellbeing for some yoga and meditation. The glorious Wellington waterfront is just at the end of the street and a popular place for a walkers and runners.

Evening plans

Head for a drink at one of the nearby waterfront bars – Dockside or Cuckoo are popular choices and both within easy walking distance. For dinner try the Crab Shack - a casual and fun Cape Cod-themed that specialises in seafood by the scoop. After dinner, enjoy the easy walk back to Quest on Johnston – no taxis required here!

The location was great, the bed was comfortable and the space worked well overall. The staff were very nice and helpful, always with a smile and a hello. Also, it was quite reasonably priced.
