As usual we had a great stay at the Distinction. This time we stayed for 3 nights in a 2 bedroom unit on the 7th floor with a city view. We have stayed here many times and always request the 7th or 8th floor which means little road noise and with the blackout curtains we always sleep well. The beds... More

Stayed overnight for business, only need the room to sleep in. It was a spacious room, the bed was very comfortable and the room had everything you need. Bathroom was clean and fresh. Very centrally located, big choice of places to eat just outside door. Staff was friendly and helpful. The only thing is, and I have seen it mentioned... More

Second time I've stayed here. The location is great, close to Te Papa, and with good cafes in easy walking distance. The room is comfortable, with a good bed and also cooking facilities and utensils if you feel like picking up some food from a great gourmet supermarket just across the road. Staff were friendly, and check in and out... More

The location of this hotel is excellent- around the corner from many shops and eateries and within walking distance of night spots and a cinema and the famous Te Papa museum. My one bedroom apartment was spacious, with modern conveniences, including a washer/ dryer which came in handy during my five night stay. All staff that I met were friendly... More

No Double glazing and outer sliding doors don't seal properly you can hear everything from the street. Not worth $300 per night and the staff weren't interested in the fact i had the worst night ever. Much better options available elsewhere

Two nights here. Great location for us. It's a busy area but as we had a room on the 8th floor and at the back of the hotel it was really quiet. No view but that's fine we weren't there long. It is appointed well with nice modern facilities including reasonably fluffy towels! The bed was very comfy. The only... More

Just going to add my 2 cents worth as I was with "No distinction at all" The rooms are well appointed with nice décor and the beds are very comfortable and I like that they don't have those awful quilted bedspreads just a white striped sheet that gets laundered between guests. The room has a heater and a fan for... More

Dear Glenda Thank you for your review. Sorry to hear that people in the public car park next door disturbed you during your stay. There shouldn't be any loitering in the car park and I will bring this up with my team to keep an eye on. Kind regards Tony Hotel Manager More

Did what we kiwis seldom do - complained and asked for replacement room. Eventually after two giants to reception and sitting around packed to leave for 40 minutes, and with little grace or enthusiasm the night desk operator moved us from 109 to 509 but it was barely worth it These rooms back onto the car park and all have...

We stayed there as a group of family and stayed in one of the penthouse suites. It was just stunning, the views across the city were amazing, the open plan living area and kitchen were perfect and there was so much space in the 3 huge bedrooms. Bathrooms were immaculate and the heated floors were so great first thing in... More

We stayed for 2 nights, the room was comfortable and warm. We wanted to use the pool but it looked dirty, it was cold so there was no way I would allow my child to go in there. We told the guy in reception he was clueless to the problem but al least he apologized.
