Excellent value for money.....nice large rooms, fast lifts, close to shops, great pool and spa, friendly helpful staff, but no air conditioning so room was hot but fabulous staff member moved us to a balcony room which was much better. Only other complaint was the shower wall was not wide enough to stop water spraying all over the floor but staff were great and brought more towels. Overall, highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Lower floors are cooler.

A super location in the heart of the Cuba Street restaurant area. We had a huge room with all conveniences except air conditioning - but this is Wellington, so if you are too hot just open the window. Nice reception area and bar, free internet, good parking ($20 per night).

Room Tip: A very popular hotel - so book well in advance.

Stayed here for our wedding anniversary and was very happy with location, found the room to be very clean and tidy. Has good facitities and is right in the heart of the "Cuba Quarter" with some excellent cafes around. Down points was no air conditioining, it was a hot night and for a 4.5 star hotel would have expected air con, and having to have window open we got all the noise from the Saturday night revellers. Room was spacious and comfortable, all in all it was an average hotel.

WE are a family of 4 from Alaska traveling around the world for 7 months and we wanted to spend a few days in Wellington. WE were so lucky to find the Quality Inn on Cuba St.
The rooms are large and the kitchenette was so great to have...we had our breakfasts and some dinners in our room - great way to save some $. My kids enjoyed the pool.
The location is perfect to walk to everything you need or want to see. You can take free buses from the I-site , which is close, to many attractions

We stayed at the Quality Hotel Wellington during late September 2011 and came away pretty happy about the hotel, it's amenities, and it's location. The location is on Cuba Street near several of the cities best restaurants. It's a short walk (4-5 blocks) to some of the better pubs in Wellington. The hotel room itself was clean, comfortable, and rather large. The only drawbacks were that the view was of a neighbors laundry and the hotel internet was constantly going down. Other than that it was a pleasent experience and I would recommend it to future travelers.

The hotel is clean and the interior design is modern. The facility feels secure since it requires a key to use the lifts.

This hotel has large rooms, sparse decorating, small TV, and very soft beds. The shower is a ridiculous design that spays all over the floor. I'd stay somewhere else next time, like the Jame Cooke.

Room Tip: Apparently the '51' rooms are the corner rooms shown in thepictures with the balconies.

Hi NZ Guy1
Thank you for sharing your experience and for your comment in regards to the shower design. While it is not always easy to rectify such design within a short time, I have asked in the meantime for our reservation department to update your profile in our system and allocate a Suite with a bath for any of your future stay with us. These Suite gives alternative options for our guests to use either bath or shower without spraying water over the floor. I am looking forward to welcoming you again after your next stay in Wellington.
