Shepherd's Arms Speight's Ale House Review

New Zealand's oldest hotel, which has rooms with private baths, is a place to soak up history and mingle with the locals. Head to the bar and mix with Wellington's after-work crowd; old photos on the wall show the city in the hotel's early days. The Ale House serves an excellent steak.
