We stayed at the James Cook Hotel last month for a quick work trip (First time) to Wellington. The Hotel its self is quite dated and needs a Re-Furb but thats not to say the cleanliness and atmosphere in the Bar/ Lobby isn't up to standard.. i never had any issues. The food in the Lobby is my favorite within the hotel as it seems fresh and tasty.
The staff are the real selling point of the hotel, they are attentive and know a lot about the city. One girl on Reception (Ashleigh) made me feel particularly at home and was welcoming and helpful when i had problems with my internet connection,she is an asset i believe she will go far. I would return to the James Cook for this service over and over again. WHAT A STAR!
The lift access to Lambton Quay is so handy and was close to my office.
I will be back!
