UPDATE 6th Nov 2011: Review left by BBC co-producer on their stay at Rongotai Apartments
“Perfect accommodation for filming a BBC property programme”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2011
As the New Zealand co-producer of the UK TV series, Wanted Downunder, I had to find comfortable accommodation for UK families that we were filming during their week long stay in Wellington. We also sometimes like to film the accommodation to include in the programme, so looking good on camera is always a bonus! I booked Rongotai Apartments for one of our British families and it was PERFECT. Plenty of space for a family with three adult children, fantastic modern facilities, immaculately clean, and nice and close to lovely Oriental Bay cafes and Lyall Bay, but mostly I’d like to thank Andreas for the outstanding customer service and his willingness to make sure our family were as comfortable as they could possibly be. I know the family really enjoyed their stay, especially because the long days of filming can really take it out of the families, so it’s great to have a perfectly cosy apartment to return to at the end of the day. Thank you! Read the full review on TripAdvisor
Today we farewell the Coe family who stayed at Rongotai Apartments for the filming of BBC TV’s Wanted Down Under series in which British families are given a look at life in New Zealand ahead of possible migration. The weather has been a challenge with snowy conditions taking hold of the capital for a few days, but we’re delighted to hear the family enjoyed their cosy accommodation and adventures in Wellington.
We’ll keep an update of when the series will be released and provide links for a sneak peak at the footage as soon as the series is launched.
We wish to thank BBC Television and their team for choosing Rongotai Apartments to host the Coe family.
Keep you posted soon!
