Insider reviews & perspectives

Comfort Life Review

stories

Atmosphere is something you can’t fake. Inside the Wellington on a typical day, you’ll find the warm atmosphere that arises from a community of people who obviously feel at home here. This feels like a great place to be, no matter who you are, what your age, or whether you are visiting or living here.

So where does that warmth come from? It begins with the fact that you can see that people are well-taken care of and happy. People take care of each other, here, too, as is apparent in the friendly exchanges you witness and the immaculate environment throughout. There are people joking with each other by the billiards table, people have their pets with them. It all tells a story that this is a good place to live.
