From the moment we walked into our room we knew we had chosen well. Modern, fresh, clean, sunny and with views over Wellington to die for. The bathroom and kitchen were superb and well equipped and cleaned every day over our week long stay. Our beds were so comfortable and the shower was big and new and had great pressure... More

Our 2 night stay went smoothly. We arrived earlier than the checkin time and after emailing the managers they were more than accommodating to store our bags for a few hours. Our room was clean and well equipped. We enjoyed the space and the kitchen facilities were all of a good standard. The bed was comfortable and the shower pressure... More

Well priced hotel with a great location right at the top of Cuba Street. We loved being able to park the rental car in the small hotel lot before exploring the town. The hotel itself, however, is disappointing and dated. The rooms are small and the shower is tiny. The shower pan is also very slippery and it is very... More

We booked a queen studio via Agoda only for 1 night. We arrived after 7 p.m. and left the hotel next day at 8 a.m. The location of the hotel was quite good. It is just 3-4 minutes walk to the Cuba street, where you have a variety of restaurants. The Room had a older appearance and one of the... More

After viewing the video on Capital View's home page, we booked a 1 bedroom unit (Rm 25), but we were bitterly disappointed to find a room that looked nothing like those portrayed in video. The bathroom/toilet area was very cramped and uncomfortable. We have never been in a shower so small. Marked lino, creased carpet and generally an old appearance.... More

Fantastic location within walking distance to Cuba St & the city. Rooms are spacious & have been recently renovated by the looks of things. Very clean, tidy & the fill in management were extremely helpful. Overall a lovely school holiday stay with our children. Highly recommend this motel. :)

The location of this motel/hotel is GREAT - only 5 minutes from Cuba Street and less than 15 minutes walk from Te Papa. Also it had an on-site parking area free of charges. Therfore we just parked the car on arrival and walked around the city. As other rewievers mention this is an elderly motel. However you definitely have value... More

Good location at the top of Cuba Street, comfortable and tidy room, and very welcoming and helpful staff. We are a family of four and there was plenty of room for us in our Studio. All in all a very pleasant experience and I would recommend Capital View to anyone looking for mid range accommodation in Wellington.

Close to Cuba Street eateries and entertainment. Older style but clean and wonderful hosts. Comfy beds, lovely views over the city. Off street parking available as well. Close to motorway, ferries and airport.
