Boutique hotel facing the bay, steps from downtown, impeccable service, and every detail covered by a wonderful staff. How do they do it at such a reasonable price. I cannot say enough about this jewel in Wellington.

Great location, Alan is wonderful. Beautiful room. Would stay here again! The rooms are all very spacious and clean and well stocked! Wish we could have stayed longer were only there for one night, our last night in New Zealand but one of best!

This boutique hotel on Oriental Pde is a gem. I came to Wellington at 10PM rather tired after a drive across the North Island and just wanting to collapse into a bed - hell, a bed of nails would have done. First impressions from the outside weren't good - the building was small and looked undeserving of the rank on... More

Loved our (too brief) stay at ohtel- brilliant location, beautifully styled and clean room and fabulously friendly staff. Lovely boutique hotel feels more like home. Easy stroll to all the foreshore has to offer. Definitely recommend and definitely be back on my next visit to Wellies.

It's hard to rival all the amazing bars and restaurants that Wellington has to offer, but one of the nights that we stayed at Ohtel we decided to stay in our beautiful room and make a couple of the recommended cocktails. It was one of the best nights of our trip. This place is exceptionally cool. I wish I could... More

My family and I had the great pleasure to stay at Ohtel for 3 nights last week. Sourced from an article in an Australian Business newspaper a year or so back and reinforced via TA research. Alan and his staff are to be commended. They run a relaxed, neat and spotlessly clean, 10 room hotel. My family are active travellers... More

This is a beautifully decorated hotel and the rooms make you feel relaxed and at ease. The staff were lovely and very polite. The check in/check out process was effortless - we were there before the check in time but were still able to go to our room on arrival. It has a good location so you can walk easily... More

Perfectly located on quiet Oriental Parade on the seafront (easy walking distance to all the restaurants in the former docks) this is a perfect example of a boutique hotel. The owner and manager Alan Blundell created an admirable entity which is definitely a retro artwork transporting you back to the 60s. The nine rooms are all spacious, some with balconies... More

Thanks for your detailed analysis of my hotel - it shows you have taken a lot of time to examine many aspects of the operation both from a guest and operator perspective, pointing out positives and some issues you are not sure about. It was a shame I was away in your country when you stayed - it would have... More

The Ohtel is a lovely boutique hotel. The rooms are spacious and stylish (it has a modern retro vibe, mid century furniture and cool Kiwi art). The bed we had was really comfortable. There's an 11am checkout time which is great. Staff are friendly and helpful. It's walking distance to excellent coffee and food (we enjoyed brunch at Duke Carvells),... More

Have just returned from spending 2 nights at the Ohtel at the end of my holiday in New Zealand, and it really can't be faulted. The room was spacious and comfortable, and the location is fantastic. What really sets Ohtel apart though is the service - Mariana is so friendly and welcoming and made my stay absolutely perfect. Will definitely... More
