This hotel has small but efficient modern rooms. It is clean, with basic toiletery and a comfortable bed. Wi- fi in your room will cost you extra $$, which we find an abberation.
There was plenty of choice for breakfast ; however, it was not very good, with a funny- tasting coffee. The swimming pool is in another hotel. The personnal was polite.

We had a short but very pleasant stay in January visiting family. We arrived late, or rather, very early in the morning and the staff member was very welcoming. All staff were really helpful, friendly and keen to do anything for us. The room was good - good size, comfortable bed and a tv that worked as well as a great view over the city and looking out to the harbour. Even though located on the Terrace, there was great access to the central city with elevators going directly to one of the main streets. The gym was small and not really very adequate but we were lucky with terrific weather so enjoyed running around the city and beachside instead. We had a special accommodation price which worked out to be truly excellent value for money.

Room Tip: looking out over the city and over the harbour

terrific hotel

faultless in terms of service , location ,attitude of the staff & the rooms are excellent.On checking out we were able to leave our car & bags while we went into town for breakfast. The hotel is typical of the Accor group and i find they are excellent the world over.

We have stayed at Novotel Wellington on a couple of occassions now. We love that the hotel is immaculately clean. Rooms are serviced daily (if you choose). The restaurant and bar area is a nice sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle. Happy hour is well worth it and the complimentary peanuts (fresh for each guest) are a nice touch. We were delighted that the bar staff remembered your drink of choice from the day before. The lift access down to Lambton Quay makes this an ideal location. Lobby staff are helpful in finding awesome places to dine. We will definately stay again and highly recommend to others.
