Gourmet Stay, offers European-style, boutique accommodation in central Wellington


The building at 25 Frederick St has 10 hotel rooms all configured differently, with full-height doors, high ceilings, soft colours, tiled bathrooms and a Pacifica feel. The same ambience is included in the 3 apartment style rooms that are offered at 23 Frederick St. These rooms included kitchens and en suite with the largest being 50sqm which includes a living and dining area.

The concept was to provide a good standard of accommodation for the discerning traveller, priced at the right level with a cosy, ground floor breakfast room.

Gourmet Stay was especially designed to provide excellent accommodation for the discerning budget conscious traveller. With its modern design and soft tones, Gourmet stay is comfortable, personal and friendly. It offers a variety of rooms in order to provide the guest an opportunity to choose the most appropriate room for their stay. Gourmet Stay was inspired by the pensione style of accommodation in continental Europe and is modelled on the accommodation in European towns, with their communal courtyards, low-scale buildings and pleasant, relaxed feel.
