Our first few nights on our Tauck Tour brought us to this very well located hotel in downtown Wellington with great views of the harbour. Restaurant was Ok as was the bar [limited beer selection] but the most amazing thing about this place is the concierge/manager - a young man named Kenny who was always around and tended to the...

Be careful when booking on line. We thought we had booked a room overlooking the harbour but that didn't transpire. There are two towers & we were put in the back tower. The room was situated on this big concrete shared deck. It was glary, hot & devoid of any out door furniture. To actually see any of Wellington Harbour... More

Good location near to centre and harbour but car parking restricted. You have to park on road and pay meters or pay for expensive hotel valeting. Some of the rooms on 8th to 10th floors have restricted views, partially obscured by a block unit (air conditioning unit?)

This hotel has a lovely position on the waterfront and we had an excellent room looking out over the harbour. The downside is that parking is limited and you are charged a fairly hefty $28 a day for valet parking. When traffic is busy, it can take sometime for your car to be brought back to you. We were not... More

This place is very comfortable, and just a walk away from the National Museum and waterfront precinct. We had a family room which, while not a suite, featured a dividing wall, between kids' beds and parents' bed, which provided some respite and personal space. The view from our room was a spectacular vista over Oriental Bay towards Wellington's CBD. The... More

This hotel is very near to the centre. From here we went to the cinema (which was very comfortable), the museum , the hop on hop off bus collected us from the hotel. The rooms are comfortable and we had a view of the habour (not a full room but it was very good). We felt that the bar was... More

This is a lovely hotel in a good location. The rooms were large enough, and we liked that there was a separate "room" (not completely closed off, but separate enough) for the kids. The decor was nice, and the view was excellent! The staff were helpful - when I stupidly couldn't figure out how to turn a light off at... More

We stayed here prior to taking the ferry to the South Island. Location is great. We were in a room in the back of the hotel which I think is part of the old hotel so we did not have air conditioning. It was abnormally cold when we were there so lack of air conditioning turned out not to be... More

After visiting their in-house restaurant on a trip to Wellington last year, my fiancee and I decided to base ourselves there on our most recent visit. From the moment they greeted us, to the time we checked out, they made us feel very welcome. We were offered a complimentary upgrade to a deluxe room, with great views out over Wellington... More
