Awesome location, Fantastic place to stay if you are not wanting to rent a car. Pretty much everything is within walking distance. The rooms are a good size and well appointed. I am not an overly tall person at 5ft 4 and found that the microwave in our room was out of reach. The beds are nice and comfy. If... More

The Distinction Wellington is located just off Courtenay Place in Wellington close to all entertainment venues. Great when your heading to a show, restaurants or catching up with friends in at the local bars. What more could you want. The apartment style rooms allow for longer stays when in the city on business. Book a night now and hit the... More

We found the hotel was close to most of the sites we wanted to visit. The kitchen was reasonably well-equipped, and the bed was very comfortable. We were there on a Friday and Saturday night, and there was a fair amount of noise on the street (we were on the first floor, so it was pretty loud). Also, the washer-dryer... More

A good location enabling easy walking access to the centre of Wellington. Conveniently placed next to a paid public car park with access from the hotel. The reception staff were efficient and friendly. The rooms were clean but the dishwasher had not been switched on so we had to wait Until the cycle had been completed before using the cutlery,...

We were treated by a friendly & helpful staff and found the room (which we got as a mystery through WOTIF) to be very nice. We had the version with a separate bedroom, neat kitchenette etc. Would have preferred a King bed to 2 Queens, but the bed was very comfy. No in house food, but you are so close... More

Great hotel in the Centre of Wellington. Easy acces to the garage from the hotel. Felt very welcome from the moment we checked-inn. Especially being allowed to park in the garage before checking-inn, so we didn't have to park in the street first. The Room itself was big, with two bedrooms, large living, full kitchen, luxurious and even had a... More

Stayed two nights at this hotel. Large stylish rooms centrally located in Wellington with parking in the basement. Impressively quiet compared to the central location in the city. I can highly recommend this hotel.
