“Twin Queen Bed in the 'hip' Cuba street”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

We book the twin queen for 3 adults, 2 young children (6yr and 1.5yr) and slept comfortably. The stay was in the middle of our NZ trip thus the fact that we can do our own laundry in CQ Comfort just next door really helped. $3 will do your washing and drying perfectly. The Cuba street location is just so convenient for us. Te Papa museum is around 15min walk. What bug me a bit is the odd design of the shower, the glass only cover a wee part of it so the bathroom floor will surely be all wet after every shower.

Got a voucher from grabone for 4 cocktails and a platter for only $35. What a bargain. We walked up Cuba Street and found a table in the very small bar. The bar man had a lot of couples using this voucher and told us there would be a wait, no problem. The cocktails when they came were lovely. We tried 4 different ones and they were all delish. The platter was small but we just ordered another one and that was fine. There was a little altercation in the lobby but that just added to the evening! It's a great match of buildings and I wouldn't mind staying here next time. If you see a voucher for cocktails go for it. The bar man was brilliant.

Good morning kumar647,

Thank you for your review. We are pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay as well as the hotel facilities.
I have taken careful note of your comments in regards to your checking time; while we always try to accommodate our guests for early arrival (before 2pm), on this instance it wasn’t possible due to the hotel fully booked the night before. I have asked also our maintenance department to check the noise coming from outside of room 316, please accept our sincerest apologies for this inconvenience and thank you for bringing this to our attention.
We do hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back to CQ Hotels Wellington again in the future.
Kind regards

We stayed for two nights during The Hobbit premiere festivities so paid a bit more than usual. We were in 557; a clean, bright and spacious rooms (though we had to keep the curtains closed because of our proximity to the neighbouring apartment block). It was unbearably hot in the morning as the sun beats right in - only one window opened, sadly. The bed was a rather bouncy and sagged in the middle but otherwise the room was fine - fit for purpose, certainly. Location on Cuba Street and close to cafes and bars, etc, was good.

The location is Wellington's lively Cuba St which is handy for the CBD as well as great shops and restaurants. My room was fabulous - spacious, light, well appointed and with an open outlook. I was lucky in that respect as some colleagues staying in the same hotel had to keep their curtains closed to avoid seeing straight into neighbouring apartments which are uncomfortably close.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesn't look into neighbouring apartments. Room 661 is excellent.

Room is big and with cooking appliances. It has a convenient location and it is located within the the heart of Welly. The restaurant serves good food as well. The restaurant staff and manager ensured that we were served properly and right on time. I was there for a business training. I would recommend this place if you are looking for a place in Wellington.

A spacious, modern and friendly Hotel. Our room (twin Queen) was fantastic- plenty of space, a nice deck to enjoy the day, the beds were comfortable and everything felt very clean and looked after.
We really enjoyed the pool- nice and refreshing after a days wandering and always felt like we had the place to ourselves!

The CQ is in a perfect spot for exploring Wellington; we enjoyed the easy walking distances to all the "usual" attractions (Te Papa, Parliament etc) and that you always start in one of the most vibrant streets. Wellington has many fantastic food spots and bars- and several of these are literally within meters of the CQ.

Room Tip: Our room was great- didn't see any others but it was one of the twin queen rooms. We had a deck...
