Stayed at Amora on a business trip, the low points were the cramped gym and old exercise equipment in need of a refresh, loud AC unit in my room, and breakfast wasn't all that appetising. This is really a shame because the room was well furnished, actually really spacious, and the bed was comfy.

The Amora is placed in the heart of Wellington's dining precinct, adjacent to the Harbour and Te Papa museum. My room was spacious and the double glazing ensured a lovely peaceful nights sleep. The Harbour view was the highlight for me and I understand all rooms have a view. I look forward to staying there again.

We visited over a weekend and had a Spring Special rate, which we felt was good value. Room was really nice, well appointed and comfortable. Breakfast buffet was very good. Can not comment on Grill room for evening meal as it was booked out for special function when we were there. Nice loung/bar area to sit and relax. Staff were... More

Stayed here with a colleague while we were attending a conference in Wellington. We were both very impressed with the level of service, the cleanliness and location. The staff were all very professional, yet friendly. The doorman dressed in top hat was lovely to see on arrival, along with the concierge who immediately took our bags and delivered them to... More

As soon as we arrived in our cars, they were taken care of. Throughout the whole stay our cars were parked at the front of the building, which was very convenient for us because we had to drove a few times the night we stayed. Room was excellent, only minor issue was one of the lights did not work. Apart... More

Didn't start well with our reservation being double charged twice to card. (4 times!) Couldn't spell my name properly and the booked car park never eventuated. Room rates were reasonable though. No Booking confirmation as name that I spelt out 3 times on the phone was still wrong Rooms well appointed, comfortable and spacious. Service in the bar was abysmal,... More

We stayed as a gift from our daughter even though we live in Wellington with a package affair including meals.The Grill restaurant was disappointing but the hotel itself was really lovely. Our room was contemporary and clean and well equipped with a gorgously comfy super king bed. Very nice pillows and linen and a view towards the harbour. The service... More

We love the Amora and choose it every time we go to Wellington. The location is the best - half way between the main shopping and eating locations of Lambton Quay and Courtenay Place and across the road from the waterfront and Te Papa. The service is always excellent and the rooms spacious and very comfortable. Breakfasts are great and... More

This hotel was an excellent choice due to its location in the city, it enabled us to walk to nearby eateries etc especially as a polar blast was visiting Wellington at the same time as us. The room was clean tidy and quiet which is always a plus. I would definitely stay again.

This is a great hotel, location is great for town, close to restaurants and bars and shops and Te Papa. Staff are lovely and this time I asked to move rooms due to the air conditioner being directly outside the room I was given and even though they were busy they found another room for me in 10 minutes!
