We booked Distinction Wellington for three nights for the weekend of 12, 13 & 14 Dec. We arrived on an early flight at 8.30 am and the staff at the hotel were happy to look after our luggage until a room was available. Check-in is 3 pm but the staff rang me at 12 pm to say the room was... More

Our team (of 16) were attending our company annual conference in Wellington last week and could not have chosen a better place to stay than at the Distinction Wellington, Century City Hotel.

One bed apartment was well furnished and comfortable. Walls were a bit thin could hear your neighbours and doors closing. Had a good night sleep though so can't have been too bad. Nice friendly staff, who were really helpful. Pretty good location near Courtney place so lots of bars and restaurants nearby. Only real negatives were the single chair in... More

Thanks for your comments. The rooms are perfect if your here for a few days with the Kitchen and Facilities. I always recommend the Superior rooms if you need a bit more space, they have more lounge chairs for you to relax in. City view rooms are definitely worth booking if a view is important. Great for people watching the... More

A 2 night comfortable stay in central wellington. Close to all restaurants, museum and the waterfront. Nicely appointed room of very good size with all cooking amenities, etc. Good sized bathroom. Only downside was lack of airconditioning, having to keep ranchslider door open for ventilation. Overall a pleasant stay.

We had a fantastic time in Wellington and the hotel is in a great location. Would reccomend it to anyone as it is close to some lovely restaurants and bars. However, the bed having the consistency of concrete making it hard to get a good night sleep.

Hi Zach - thanks for your review. I've just this minute got off the phone with our bed supplier and we will have a good number of the beds replaced by late December and early January. We regularly review the hotel product and as part of our ongoing maintenance and replacement of the beds is part of that program. Regards... More

Stayed here one night for 4 Nations League final. We were upgraded on arrival to a 2 bedroom apartment with a city view. Easy walk to the entertainment district and a great location. Is a bit noisy at night but that's par for the course in inner city apartments. We will stay here again.

The hotel was a really good find - clean, tidy and quiet. The apartments were well equipped and the hotel was just across the road from Moore Wilsons (supermarket). It was also very close to a number of good restaurants. Found the hotel was great value for a business trip and will definitely stay again.

Hello Any Thanks for your comments. We are modern and have everything you need if you're planning to stay for a few days. Driving in Wellington in general can be fun with the one way system.

Stayed here for the first time. Firstly bed was comfortable but there isn't any space for clothes to be unpacked. There is a wardrobe but it is filled with ironing board and clothes airer.

Thank you for your feedback. We have been flat out cleaning carpet recently so I'm sure that has been addressed and I have discussed the cleaning of the sofa with our housekeeping. The hotel has two views and I would always recommend the city view rooms if your in town on holiday. Regards Tony More
