We enjoyed our stay at Ibis Wellington. For someone who has not been to Wellington before, the front office staff gave us detailed info about the city and it just what we expected to find out for our trip. Our rooms were well serviced every day and everything was fully restocked for us. We were offered interconnceting rooms for our family which were so spacious and comfortable. We had good sleep for the 3 nights although the bed in our room has been used for too long and was too soft.

Dear Accorhotels traveler,

I am so pleased that you enjoyed your first visit to Wellington and that my Front Office staff assisted you with directions around town. Thank you also for your comments about your bed being soft, all mattresses were replaced in 2009 as part of our rooms refurbishment and I shall have my Chief Engineer check the beds in the interconnecting rooms to ascertain why this bed felt soft.

Kind regards,

Nathan Frost

great location in the city center near the shopping hubs of cuba street and lambton quay. the waterfront cafes and restaurants are almost next door. the rooms are big enough but without any frills.

Dear Accorhotels traveler,

Thank you for your loyalty to the hotel over the month, I am sorry you were in a different room type to your previous stay and in the future do not hesitate to ask for a room with a King bed as these rooms are a little larger. Thank you for the recommendation to your friends and associates and we look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel in the near future.

Kind regards,

Find the Ibis a handy, tidy hotel. Have stayed there previously and think it is good value for money in such a central location

Great location, just 1 block from the airport bus stop, shopping and harbour. In house restaurant and bar very nice, food good size serves and value for money.
Vending machines in hotel also a great idea.
10-15 minute walk to 2 supermarkets and the i site (tourist info).
When visiting Wellington be prepared for any weather !!!! even in the middle of Summer.

Dear Accorhotels.com traveler,

I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us over the Christmas period and I am pleased that you took full advantage of the hotels close proximity to everything Wellington! Thank you for your comments regarding the restaurant, I will pass on your comments to the Food and Beverage Team. You are correct with your comments about the weather, you do need to prepare yourselves for any weather in Wellington. They say Melbourne is like 4 seasons in one day, Wellington is like 8 seasons in one day! Wellington has though been voted the “Coolest little Capital in the World” according to Lonely Planet and we are not talking about the temperature!

Kind regards,

Nathan Frost
