A little old, a little tired maybe, but my periodic home on business trips for over 15 years
Good points : not hermetically sealed and stinking of "fragrance" like its newer competition (ie windows that actually open) , comfortable decent sized rooms with everything you need, live music in the lobby - at one point a harpist - currently a chap on a grand, right in the middle of town (handy to everything), a bar with staff who stay more than five minutes so you get recognised, very reliable restaurant ie no "bad" meals in 15 years and some very very good ones, friendly staff, clean, comprehensive breakfasts, well priced (for Wellington) , bad points : none really

Breakfast coffee in the cafe in the reopened gallery
Very good coffee, attention to detail and highly recommended
(food is also good and staff friendly and helpful)
Flowers which inflate and deflate in the gallery lobby.
Great idea .

Sometimes it's the simple things that are just so
perfect. One slice of toast, a light spread of cream cheese,
two slices of cold smoked NZ Salmon, a squeeze of lemon and
just a little gherkin pickle. Eaten off some of Mums remaining
unbroken china (following the multiple big earthquakes in the last year
in Christchurch) . Oh yes I'm in food heaven.

Recently a long time (and much respected in the traffic safety field)
work college of mine (finally) retired.
These are three plates of cupcakes made by Karen Johnson
(the cake god) in our head office (I don't work there ) .
Nice one Bob enjoy yourself , you will be missed as you were the walking encyclopedia.

View from the cafe
(oh yeah baby I never wanted to leave)
I don't know what made me think this wasn't
going to be enough for two when it came out.
What you can't see is all the smoked
salmon behind the "shubbery".
Excellent menu choice Minx.
