Didn't sleep well due to room temperature. Its so hot. Can't locate the termostat of the room. Can hear footsteps on the next floor and door slamming on the next neighbor. True it's clean and tidy. Love the idea of a heater in the bathroom as it comes handy. Overall just so so. Location wise it's center.

Great location, very clean, beautifully appointed, everything you need. Modern. We booked two rooms and both couples rates this hotel as the highlight of our stay in New Zealand. We stayed in 10 different places and we loved this one. Parking available and conveniently situated.

We stayed here for 1 night. We had a 2 bedroom apartment. Very clean and great to have kitchen facilities. Highly recommended for families. Staff were very helpful. Parking is right beside the hotel. All Distinctions I have stayed in have been great.

We found this hotel very modern and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. The kitchenette was well equipped. The room consisted of a bed, an oversized lounge chair and a table and chairs. Only one suitcase stand. The room was overheated and stuffy and if you opened the window it was too noisy.

I generally have a great experience with Distinction. Have stayed multiple times. We visited with the same group of friends we had last time due to the prior experiences being good. The staff were lovely as usual. The room was the let down. It was tired; and the magic of a hotel room is feeling like you are the first... More

This hotel was perfect for our needs. It was very quiet and within a short walk of everything we needed. We stated in a courtyard room but it wasn't a courtyard - just a gap between 2 buildings. There was minimal noise audible from the other rooms. The bed was comfortable. It was excellent to have the little kitchen too.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment with 2 bathrooms which was wonderful for 2 couples. Everything about this hotel was good and the location in the heart of Wellington meant we could walk everywhere. We would definately stay here again

Although this hotel is in a great, handy location, it was very hard to sleep due to the continual vibrating of the hotel. Apparently caused by being attached to a parking building. Noisy crowds of pub goers in the street at all hours too! If you want a quiet, relaxing time, try somewhere else. Also, access from the hotel parking... More

Great location with a quiet nights sleep. Four of us stayed here in a two bedroom apartment. We got 6GB of free wifi which was great. The apartment was smaller than it looked on the website but OK. The king bed was comfortable. Single beds in second room were a bit narrow for adults but OK for kids. For us... More

The hotel is located close to many restaurants and bars and our room had a reasonable view from the balcony. Very modern and clean throughout with a full kitchen and large fridge/freezer. The staff were helpful and friendly. The only negative that I would comment on is the pool. It is located a long walk through a busy second floor... More

Thank you for your feedback. Great to see you enjoyed your stay. The pool is a bit different isnt it. Good size and the gym is well equipped but you do have to walk through the car park to get to it. Thanks again. Regards Tony More
