Visiting Wellington for a course at the university. Stayed at the Intercontinental. Fantastic. The hotel was undergoing renovations. I stayed in a renovated room (worth the extra). Very comfortable, excellent service. I had breakfast and there was an excellent selection. Restaurant staff were friendly and remembered me the next day, so it was a nice personal touch. I enjoyed my... More

We stayed in one of the renovated rooms, the upgrade cost $80/night but the room was lovely. The hotel is centrally located, the ongoing renovations are noisy at times but obviously necessary. The bed and pillows were fantastic...true comfort. There were a couple of design faults perhaps in the otherwise lovely bathroom. There was no shelf in the shower to... More

We booked into the InterContinental as it was in the heart of the city and we had been there before, we had to go to a function at Dockside Restaurant and it was perfect as we only had to walk 10 mins to the Venue . The Hotel is under renovations so we really could not complain except the ground... More

Beautiful beds and great bathrooms. The concierge was super helpful and booked us restaurants. I used the gym a couple of times too which was nice to do, although being so close to the waterfront, you're be mad not to run/walk around it instead of an indoor gym. Such a beautiful harbour. the pool looked lovely, even though I didn't... More

Sometimes there's nothing better than a weekend away, without actually going away - no travelling, no compunction to sightsee, yet no housework either. The refurbished InterContinental (not quite finished - the ground and first floor are still being done) has returned it to being Wellington's top big hotel. Last visit in Feb we stayed in a deluxe spa room on... More

I recently stayed here on business and quite frankly I was blown away with the quality and finish of the renovated rooms on level 7 and the funky styling and great service in club lounge. It was the best I've experienced in all my recent travels. On a personal note I'd like to thank Mattius and the team for their... More
