The final stop in our Journey through the North Island was the James Cook. We were upgraded on arrival to an executive room and took advantage of the Club Lounge facilities on the top floor (free breakfast and drinks, etc). Views from the room were lovely and location is suprisingly convenient, if a bit hard to find at first if you are not from Wellington!
Service was 100%, with concierge going the extra mile a few times for us finding some unusual destination requests.
Room presentation was good, although a smaller TV than expected in the room (as per normal in NZ it seems). Bathroom did look a little tired, but very clean and all was working.
