We stayed at a King Standard room on the 2nd floor which was fine - I think the only high floor rooms are for club members. Room was great, excellent amenities, bathroom had fixed showerhead but surprisingly not troublesome. Could hear a bit of thumping from outside when other room doors open and shut but not too loud. Dinner at... More

I have reviewed this hotel several times in the past but on our last couple of visits to Wellington we have stayed at the new Sofitel because we thought the Intercontinental has lost some of the amazing level of service that we had always encountered. However we stayed here on opening night of the Wearable Arts show because of the... More

Because of the six month rule this review covers two stays. After being looked after so well during the Edinburgh Tattoo in February 2016 I decided to return in March 2016 when Wellington was quieter ( 14/3/2016 - 18/3/2016 ). And it proved to be a very good idea. I pay to access the Club Lounge which is definetly worth... More

The location of the hotel is excellent. It is in the central business district and we easily walked to all the sights in Wellington. Wellington is a walkable city. The hotel is approximately a half mile to the Te Papa museum, Cuba street, and a little less to the government area. Further, the hotel is a 2-3 minute walk to... More

Spacious and well equipped room, polite and efficient staff. Comfortable bed and effective climate control, I can't think of anything to criticise. Location means you can walk to most CBD businesses and there are a number of good restaurants in the vicinity if you don't wish to eat in the hotel.
