The staff of this hotel were excellent with nothing too much trouble and the food and conference facilities were impressive. The administration was surprisingly poor. We had booked online for a conference I was attending and thankfully I arrived at reception with the printout of the reservation. The hotel had the wrong dates in its database and my wife was...

I upgraded to a room on L7 to escape renovation noise which wasn't that bad in fact. Now almost complete I believe. Was there on business for 6 nights and found the room very comfortable, large and with a lovely, modern bathroom. Very clean, excellent choice of food via room service and very friendly, helpful staff at Reception, the concierge,... More

Well located in Wellington. All the staff were very helpful. The hotel was just about to start a major refurbishment of their rooms but our room was still good despite not yet having been updated. There was a lack of drawer space - but this was the only minor problem. Good gym. Excellent conference facilities. Good food. Very good breakfast.

Lack of communication spoilt the last day of our stay - keys cancelled and room not serviced. Fixed problem but no follow through with turn down at night. Concierge staff on other hand were brilliant, both with getting car and giving restaurant ideas. Movie special deal had a glitch which was a problem and again staff did not follow up... More

Stayed here for an Anniversary weekend, 2 nights. Compared to some other similarly rated hotels I've stayed at this one seems a little more business orientated, but a really good place nonetheless. We stayed on the 3rd floor which is one of the floors yet to be refurbished (refurbished floors are AMAZING) but still good with lots of room, good... More

The room prices have been raised by a large percentage so everyone is paying for the refurbishment. Limited rooms available result in fewer upgrades and few harbour view rooms to enjoy. As well the Club Lounge guests charges have increased tremendously - $45 for each guest to have afternoon tea (limited to 2 sandwiches and a platter of cakes, with... More

First time I stayed I was on the 4th floor which hadn't been refurbished and it showed. Even the tv remote wasn't working properly but the room service was fantastic.

This is one of the best hotels in Wellington and has very convenient location in the middle of Wellington. The room I had was very clean and spacious. The breakfast buffet had a substantial selection. I would stay there again.

The hotel did everything I needed. My room was a little tired, but I understand that there is a refurb going on. The staff at breakfast were really friendly and everything at check-in and check-out was handled in a straight-forward way.
