We had a wonderful stay at the Novotel on The Terrace over a weekend in early August. Our room was very spacious and the decor was very modern. There was plenty of room to have our 2 suitcases out and still have plenty of space to move around the room and the large windows, facing the harbour (although the view was mostly of the city buildings with only a glimpse of the harbour from our 5th floor room) ensured the room wasn't too dark. The extra seating option of a chaise-lounge-type sofa was a nice touch, as so often in hotel rooms the only options are to sit on the bed or an uncomfortable desk chair. The bathroom was also spacious enough with a nice big mirror, good lighting and shower over the bath. We appreciated the air-con system that allowed us to set the temperature in the room ourselves.
The location of the hotel is great, with a lift from the hotel directly down to Lambton Quay, from where it's a short-ish walk to great restaurants and bars on Courtenay Place. Also about a 10 min brisk walk to the New World Metro on Willis St from the hotel as well.
Only slightly down-sides was that the bed was a little on the hard side - but that is often the case with hotel beds. And the TV remote seemed to take a fair few clicks before the TV would respond in changing channels or volume - but not a big deal, only mildly frustrating.
We would highly recommend the Novotel Wellington and will definetley be returning to stay for our next visit to the capital.
