It can be difficult to find hotels that offer two beds per room so Mum and I chose to stay here because they have rooms with a queen and a single bed. It's also conveniently close to Lambton Quay for easy access to shops and restaurants. The room itself was fine, with a good sized bathroom and comfortable beds. We spent very little time in the room other than sleeping because we had so any activities planned, so I didn't check out the wider hotel amenities. Staff were pleasant and happy to arrange to store our bags when we checked out at 11 but intended to stay in Wellington for the rest of the day. Valet parking is an extra charge but can be convenient given the scarcity of parking in the region post-earthquake. A pleasant stay overall.

Room Tip: We were on the 19th floor (1903) and it was well soundproofed, with none of the rushing wind noises that sometimes come with staying in higher level hotel rooms in Wellington.

Spent one night with my wife and 2 children at this Wellington Iconic hotel and really enjoyed my stay from A to Z
All staff we came across was very friendly and room lovely.

We did not have dinner in house but breakfast was great. Lance our waiter was superb and Lua was great with the kids and apparently made the yummiest pancakes.

Thank you very much to all the staff, will be definitely be back next time in Windy Welly.

We stayed here again on 17-18 May 2014, and enjoyed it very much as always. We've been coming here for years and the staff spoil us rotten, so very nice that they remember us and make us welcome. We now purchase a room on the club floor if we can, as these are beautiful large rooms with a bath, full toiletries, robes etc, and access to the club lounge makes you feel that you're really having a holiday. I would recommend these rooms as very good value for money. The staff in the club lounge are so helpful, and the cocktail hour provides lovely food and drinks which is very nice. The hotel is always well maintained, clean, a little bit luxurious but at a reasonable price. The staff are so helpful and flexible in accommodating any needs like an early breakfast which we asked for. Very much appreciated, and highly recommended.

Nice hotel but the rooms are quite small. Clean and good decor but traffic noise is audible on west side of building. Room service is very expensive for basic things. Ie. paying a premium for steamed veggies that were clearly pre-cut and previously frozen.

Over all it worked as a one-night business stop.

Room Tip: Internet only lets you use 1 device at a time, so don't expect to be able to have a laptop and smartphone working at same time.

This hotel is well placed for eating and shopping. There is an elevator down to Lambton Quay, where there is a plethora of decent quality shoe and clothing stores.
The hotel gym has good quality functioning equipment for those wanting to workout. Room wise, these are a good size with good lighting. My bathroom was quite generous in size, had a bath and great lighting. Overall there was plenty of storage space inc 2 sets of drawers. The work desk had some useful things like paperclips and a stapler. McDonalds, New Metro supermarket and Subway also close by. I did eat a snack style meal in the hotel lobby area, and it was quite good and well priced. I would be more than happy to stay here again.
