A really great location staying in this hotel with so many places to visit nearby. Polite and friendly staff. Really nice food in restaurant but room service needs sprucing up a bit as we ordered breakfast and placed form outside of room as stated but was still there in morning so breakfast which was good was a little late.

A nice hotel with plenty of things to do around. Rooms were nice and clean, front desk staff were polite and efficient. Breakfast was very good. Overall I really enjoyed my stay and would stay there again. Good for a business traveller as well.

There are very few hotels that achieve a combination of comfort, service and location. The Amora in Wellington does. From the moment we arrived, where we were greeted in a friendly manner, to the comfortable room and helpful front desk staff to guide us to great places to visit in the area, we were impressed. Liam (the GM) leads a... More

I arrived on a wet and windy Wellington evening. Check in was fast and easy. I was happy with my room which was spacious and well appointed and had a view of the Harbour (better during the day). The restaurant meal was good and the service attentive and faultless. I found the location to be superb and it was easy... More

Very nice room. Staff were plain on their service. Nothing exceptional at all when checking in and out. Room itself was very clean and a reasonable size. Good view past the dirty windows. My room was right outside the elevators so all I heard all night was the "DING". Maybe request a room away from the lifts. Lighting in the... More

Bit of a non descript hotel near the waterfront.....the reception in winter is freezing I felt very sorry for the receptionists as the constantly opening doors letting in the famous Wellington winds. Room was ok, just what you expect size wise, air conditioner was so loud I couldn't hear the TV ! I had a room next to the lift... More

I chose this hotel because it was close to Michael Fowler Centre. I went to Wellington to see a concert. The location of the hotel was perfect. It's very close to MFC, Te Papa and all the shops including a supermarket. I arrived at the hotel early in the morning just to drop my bag off. The front desk staff... More

For $240 a night I expect more than what I got. Motel quality at twice the price. The staff are courteous and professional though. The TV in the room was dodgy. The bathroom was in need of maintenance (peeling sealant around the bath and tiles). The grubby couch in the lobby was a bit of a surprise too.
