Fantastic front desk service, great location, superb state of rooms, excellent all round staff service, would most definitely stay in this hotel again and again. I would rate this hotel 10/10 Brian, Sydney

This hotel is sited well. Just around the corner from 'interesting' Cuba Street, across the road from the Michael Fowler centre for shows, close to the national Te Papa museum and the waterfront. Comfortable rooms, pretty quiet given that the hotel is close to traffic. You'd think that they would have free wifi, but unfortunately not. Time to update that... More

Spent the weekend here with a friend for a spa weekend at the onsite Day Spa. Amazing time. Definitely recommend the high tea and the food in the restaurant was also really good. Great location, it was nice to wander down to the waterfront after breakfast.

This is a great hotel, in an ideal location for the waterfront, particularly Te Papa. The rooms are clean and have a great view over the waterfront. I was in a club room on the 9th floor with access to the club lounge, which provides a great cooked breakfast, and afternoon drinks and nibbles. I have stayed here a number... More

We arrived early morning and expected to wait for the room to be ready. We were told they would fast track it for us, but it was still not ready before 2pm. No worries, as 2pm is check in time. Just a bit miffed they said they would fast track and didn't. We couldn't have asked for a more comfy... More

The changing landscape of Wellington CBD means The Amora will have a restricted view soon as the completion of nearby apartments has cut back the view somewhat, but don't be put off. If you find yourself with a harbour view, there is still plenty to see. If you treat yourself to a Club Room, free drinks, canapés and breakfast await,... More

Perfect for myself and my two lads, nothing was a problem, has a ball! We had the double deluxe room which had ample space. Only 15 minutes from the airport and right on the main strip on Wakefield road.

Good hotel with a great view over Auckland Harbour. We stayed in a club room and the evening drinks and snacks were fabulous. Leave a bit of time for breakfast as if they are busy it can take some time. Very helpful staff and quick to fix any problems you may have. Right around the corner from Cuba St when... More
