Winter review:
Location is the highlight of this place.
If you want to gallery hop/shop/sample the many bars, cafés, restaurants this is the spot for you
Smack bang in the very cool Cuba St the many eateries & shops are at your doorstep.
This is a carpark in the heart of the city though so, arriving on a weekday morn, all camperhome spots were occupied by sedans.
We parked nearby for the day & returned around 4.30PM to secure a spot for the night.
Cheapest rate was $35 from 4PM check in to 8AM.
Payment via a website so internet connection needed.
Self contained vehicles only with nearest toilet a 6 min walk away at
This is a city spot so the usual city noises applies.

For an incredibly central Wellington location thought this was good. $35 a night but did have power and bins and is literally just off the Cuba street . Was glad to have earplugs and eye mask though as lights on in car park all night and some city noise.

This is a car park not a camp site. Power is available however. Very convenient for next morning ferry AND for going out in the evening - in the heart of Cuba street. Yes it is noisy because inner city... But then again had the inner city buzz. Limited motorhome places as they can be used by cars, about a dozen. The spaces are only car size but we were 7m long and fine... Then again carpark wasn't busy the Friday night we stayed late Oct. Would have no hesitation staying there again

Good location for an overnight park-up which gave us electricity and a nice central location. However, be really careful of the pricing - I had read information for the other city motorhome park which mentioned a price per 24 hours. BE AWARE - this car park does not charge by 24 hours. It is $35 for max 12pm-8am but if you need to stay beyond 8am then your only option is to get another ticket which is $45 (additional $10 for the early check-in). Our ferry wasn’t until 2:45pm so we had to pay the extra making this the most expensive site we have used (for the least facilities).
It was nice to be central to Wellington but I’m not sure I would use this one again - the spaces were small and the car park on a slight slope. From early morning you realise that you are basically parked in a car park as everyone starts to arrive for their day.

Right in the heart of the action. Sadly it was a Saturday night. Didn't get much sleep with all the noise.

A little bit to expensive for that place. But its almost the only one in the city so you don't have much choice

I agree with others that this place is really difficult to rate. Perfect for us as we wanted something central to go out in Wellington and really close to the ferry port. Downsides are that you are basically just camping in a car park in the city centre. This would have been ok had there been a toilet however the closest public toilet is a 5-10 minute walk. Not great if you need a wee in the middle of the night. You have to pay at a ticket machine and it doesn't accept notes so you either need lots of change or have to use your card.

It is just a parking without any facility, so maybe a little bit expensive ($29/night), but very good location, close to one of the main streets (Cuba Street) full of restaurants and amenities. Convenient if you are taking the Ferry.

Really good location right in the city centre. Close to all amenities and restaurants. However, it was also the disadvantages of the city, very small (size of a parking space) and very noisy night.
