The location of the hotel is great and the access to Lambton Quay is convenient although it's strange to walk through the restaurant to access the elevator. The rooms are comfortable enough although the new decor could not be described as tasteful or restful. But the restaurant lets the place down. The breakfast is OK but the service at dinner... More

I travelled with my parents (who are older) and my daughter on a recent trip and we stayed in two, two double bed rooms on the seventh floor. Even though we arrived just after 2pm, Check In was a problem as only one room was available. I'm not sure what the problem was, but we waited over 15 minutes at... More

Recently spent a few nights at the hotel, and we're very please with the room, location right in the city and the staff were helpful. Staff made it for us, did a sightseeing tour days in Wellington and was amazing. Pack warm, walk everywhere and enjoy! poor thing that NO WiFi in the rooms.

Recently enjoyed a few nights at the hotel, and we're very please with the room, location right in the city and the staff were extremely helpful. Staff made it for us, giving directions to great bars/cafes and sorted us out with things to do for the days we spent in Wellington. Pack warm, walk everywhere and enjoy!

this was our 42 anniversary trip. We alaways wanted to visit Australia and Newzealand. In Auckland we were at the Sofitel which was a great place after which we went to wellington and stayed at the Novotel. A big shock, the reception was excellent and very friendly. The hotel was dark and outdated and felt very eerie. The room was... More

Stayed 3 nights at this hotel. Location is pretty good in that its in quite area with direct access to the main traffic belt (Lambton Quay). However, that access is closed after 5pm and therefore I had to use alternative routes to get back to the hotel. I booked a twin room. The room was spacious and had all the... More

We had to laugh - we had been told Wellington was very hilly. OK. We arrive off the freeway and the hotel is only a stone's throw off it. All easy. Park and check in. Easy. They ask if we are going for a walk into the shopping area. Yes of course. They suggest we don't walk "down the street"... More

This hotel is very well located for a walking tour of Wellington. you can park on the street in front (paid on weekdays) and use the back exit lift to go straight into the port. The staff wasn't that friendly during check-in. And the lobby area is simply too small... the breakfast is so so, but the rooms are quite... More
