Spent a week at the James Cook Grand Chancellor in Feb 2012 for business. Arrived at an awful hour of the night and a staff member was at the desk and very helpful checking me in. The room was very clean and comfortable. No one can control the weather, so for those on the higher floors expect the Wellington wind to buffer against the windows at night. Buts that life, the hotel is high on the hill. I didn't get to use a lot of the facilities though I did use the restaurant, it was Asian week which was served buffet style, not really something I'd write home about, though the Al a Carte menu was very good but on the expensive side. The hotel is close to just about everything with two levels of access so it's easy for you to get into the city or to the harbour from the lower entry. The hotel has a cafe/bar in the lobby which although relatively small when you consider how many rooms there are is clean, busy and popular. Overall it was a very good hotel for business and those on holidays, it's not the cheapest of hotels but you get what you pay for and I'm willing to pay a little extra for cleanliness and variety.
