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.

We read reviews carefully when booking and booked here seeing all the glowing reviews and description. Rather than opt for the standard room we elected for the superior one bedroom apartment which boasted a separate lounge, kitchen and modern furnishings. The additional sale point was proximity to Cuba Street and free parking and noted that the building despite being described... More

While we were visiting, the hotel was undergoing renovation, so the outside of the building looked, not so pleasant. It is an uphill drive, if you have a car along - but can accommodate a decent parking for upto 20-25 cars. The staff is courteous and friendly and the hotel is clean and hygienic. This was our first bump into... More

We spent a couple of nights at this place and found it very comfortable. Mark, the very friendly and helpful fellow at the desk, quickly helped us to get oriented to the area and provided a good map indicating to us where is the nearest grocery store, sights to see, gas station and route to the ferry. We had a... More

This hotel is in a great location. Mark was very friendly and helpful and even took the time to engage with the children travelling with us. The room was clean and tidy with a spacious modern bathroom, including generous sized shower. Will certainly stay here again when in Wellington.
