In looking at other reviews perhaps we would have enjoyed our stay here more if we were in an apartment. As it was, our room was a small studio with a view of the parking deck next door. The bathroom had only a shower head that was separated from the rest of the bathroom by only a shower curtain. When...

Our studio apartment room was clean and perfect fora short stay in the city. It included a small kitchenette with a stove, fridge, and microwave. Our room also had a small balcony. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Conveniently located near restaurants,a shopping district, Te Papa museum and Mt Victoria park. A short walk from the waterfront. Nice hotel, would...

This hotel is very centrally located to transport and all the hotspots in Wellington - not to mention the beach is a 10 minute walk. The rooms are spacious and well appointed and the beds very comfortable. The only down side if is you have a balcony on Tory Street it may be a bit noisy at night ,especially on...

Stayed here for a full week. The hotel location was the best thing about this place from my point of view. We had a "rear facing" room which was quite a disappointment. These face the back of two other buildings so the balcony feels like it is literally in a rectangle concrete hole. Being on the 2nd floor the room...

We arrived at the Distinction to find ourselves in a Studio room with no laundry facilities where we had specifically asked for them, but once we'd raised this with Reception we were moved immediately with no fuss whatsoever to a 1-bedroom apartment, which was fine. The apartment was fine, large, comfortable and well appointed, without being 'flash' or trendy -...

Rooms are self contained with a separate living area with kitchen and also washing machine/dryer which is so much more comfortable than an ordinary hotel room. Bed was very comfortable and we could walk everywhere we wanted to go. Caught the bus from the airport and stop was an easy walk. In saying this it cost $18 for the two...

Stayed at the Distinction Hotel for 4 nights. Hotel is very noisy (constant banging on walls and from the room above). Very easy to hear when someone closes a door in the hallway. Also, there is no air-conditioning. When preparing to check out of the hotel, I had lined all of my boyfriends belongings on the glass table in the...

This was the second time my wife and I have stayed at this property, and it was just as good as the first time. Large-sized rooms, and the property is in a great location, handy to central Wellington so we can walk everywhere in the city. There is an excellant supermarket close by (Moore Wilsons - excellent cheese section), if...

8 of us travelled from HB to a concert in Wellington. The hotel had been pre-booked for about 5 months. We had two separate apartments with all the amenities, kitchen, spacious lounge area and a washer/drier. A queen size bed in a separate bedroom and one in the lounge (heaps of room). The rooms were spotless and I really could...

Excellent hotel for short stays. We had a studio, and it was very well equipped-will need some maintenance in a short time. Big bathtub and a good bed. Also very fast internet. Very close to a lot of mall restaurants.
