On arrival had to carry all my bags to front desk and room, concierge just standing around. Booked using a company credit card online, hotel wrongly said credit card declined. In the interim used personal card for room and felt front desk not very friendly dealing with situation. Carried own bags up to room went downstairs for dinner. After dinner... More

We drove into Wellington from the north, which made this hotel especially convenient as it is on the north end of the downtown area and easy to get in and out. All of the major sights in central Wellington were within walking distance. The City & Sea Museum and waterfront are just a block away, the New Zealand national museum... More

I have not stayed at the Intercontinental for a few years and had the pleasure of staying on the Club lounge floor over the weekend for a conference. We had dinner at Chameleon on Friday night and were suitably impressed with the menu. We were told that the plates could be shared and we were not disappointed. The food was... More

We stayed here in February. Parking is impossible so we left the car with the valet, which worked well for us. The concierge helped us a lot with local restaurants. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable with harbour views. The tourist wharf is just a very short walk away. As you'd expect, the Intercontinental is a welcoming and wonderful... More

We had been touring New Zealand for several weeks and were booked to stay at the Bolton apartments for two days before flying on to Napier. However the Bolton was undergoing building works and so we were switched to the Intercontinental, and what a wonderful surprise. Many of the rooms had recently been completely renovated and we were invited to... More

From the moment we walked in the front door, we were aware of the refurbishment improvements. Friendly, welcoming staff made check-in a breeze, even though we arrived earlier than originally planned. We stayed on the club floor and immediately were aware of the room upgrade since our last visit, with harbour views and the club lounge is so much better.... More

Fantastic hotel in central Wellington. The room was exceptional and far exceeded our expectations. The bed was amazing and the bathroom luxurious. All of the staff went the extra mile to make our stay enjoyable. Will definitely be back!

there is no question that this hotel is adorned to a very high standard but you are certainly paying for that. The room was comfortable and well styled but perhaps, for a clearly uncultured bloke like myself, not to the extent that I could justify (in hindsight) the rack rate. However, it did have a classy and conservative vibe around... More

The hotel is a stylish modern hotel in the heart of the CBD. The bars and restaurants have a good feel and appeal to the business and leisure customers alike. The rooms are well appointed but the windows were not enough to keep the Wellington winds at bay. Given the city's reputation for regular high winds, I would get those... More
