This hotel has a few good things but also lots of issues that are likely to annoy frequent travellers. It is certainly in an excellent location - probably the best in Wellington. Everything you could want for both business or leisure is nearby. And there are pockets of excellent service, with a very friendly welcome from the concierge and the... More

I stayed here for a work conference held in the hotel, and was glad for the convenience. The hotel is in desperate need of a re-furb, so if you don't have to stay here, I wouldnt. The rooms are very tired, but more so, not very well laid out. I spent the morning blow-drying my hair, straddled over the toilet... More

I travel extensively for business and hotels after a while become a non-event. A review is not something I would usually bother with. Except in this case with Intercontinental WLG. Their check list stuff is great... the food, the foyer, the breakfast, the room, the tv, the aircon... all great, but most 5 star hotels are great. It's the staff... More

Always wanted to stay here and saw a room earlier on in the year when a friend stayed here for a work conference. We opted for a non-refurbished superior room. Was offered the chance to upgrade for $60 to a refurbishd room but thought we would take our chances on the original room and glad we did. On the 3rd... More

We had a standard room on 4th floor, which was just an ordinary room and a bit tired looking. Worst thing was noisy aircon which meant we had to turn off to hear the TV and also whilst sleeping, made it very stuffy and uncomfortable. If you can afford a superior room pay it and you should then be on... More

Last stayed 12 months ago. What a difference. Fantastic staff and service. Chameleon restaurant very good. Again staff just perfect (thanks Michel). Given that this visit was a 'treat' for wife and I and based on this stay we will treat ourselves a bit more often. Good one Intercontinental. You rock!

It had been several years since we stayed at the Wellington Intercontinental and the update to the club floor rooms where we stayed made an excellent room even better. Likewise for the club itself, with a full breakfast buffet including made-to-order eggs on offer. The evening canapes from the Chameleon restaurant downstairs were quite good each evening. Each guest is... More

I travel to Wellington multiple times a year for business. Previously have stayed in other hotels (never any that really were amazing) but decided to try out the Intercon this time. This was a fantastic choice and well above the others. When I arrived someone was there to collect my bags, get me to my room, and organise my meeting... More

This was a very nice hotel, with an extremely central location - a block from Lambton Quay and a block from the waterfront. My group really appreciated the hotel's willingness to let us all check in early - many thanks for that. Rooms were good, service was good in an impersonal sense, although be wary of having the Concierge book... More

I stayed at the InterContinental for 3 weeks during September of 2014 with a large group of people. We received excellent service and the staff were very friendly. The rooms are very spacious and you have a great view of the harbour (which is only a few minutes walk from the hotel). The breakfast buffet was the best I've ever... More
