Stayed one night here with 3 of my girlfriends in Room 712. We were welcomed at first sight and the people at reception were friendly and very kind. Our rooms were clean and there was nothing we could find to complain about. Whoever was staying in the room next to us, I hope we didn't keep them up too late...

My husband and I arrived late in the afternoon on the first day of fall. The room was hot and we quickly found a huge floor fan and opened the windows. Thankfully, that helps. We slept with the fan running and the windows open all night. It did cool off during the night so that helped. The hotel room was...

We had two separate bookings for 2 nights as could not be accommodated in the same room as the hotel was full but it was all handled effortlessly by the staff and in fact they upgraded us the second night which was a treat. We would not stay anywhere else in Welington.

I stayed three nights and the location is great, near enough to walk into town and yet not too noisy and with right on the ocean. The hotel is clean enough and the staff friendly, but check out Sunday morning there was a bit of a wait. Our room was ok, a bit jaded and we couldn't get to it...

We were greeted by Sally and Alex who were very welcoming and chatty. We were originally given a city view room but after asking if they by...

As far as business hotels go then one is perfectly comfortable. One 80 resturant was good. No complaints. Conference rooms were very good. Most business hotels can be fairly bland but this one at least had a personality.

Hotel in a good location and staff friendly and helpful. We had booked a superior bay view room which did not have aircon and had a double and a single bed. When we queried the aircon with the hotel we were told that a superior room was a standard room and as such did not have aircon however there was...

Spent two nights in a harbour view room, despite quite a busy road beneath hotel it was quiet at night. Close proximity to town and harbour and about 5 minutes walk to the excellent Te Papa museum. Harbour evening at night was buzzing with lots of bars and restaurants. Disappointingly the food was average and the breakfast quite poor with...

We stayed here two nights before proceeding to South Island. Our room was on the eighth floor looking over the bay and towards the city center. The room was spacious and comfortable. On check in we were welcomed warmly. We had two problems: the bedside alarm went off at 5am. Apparently the maid had not turned off the alarm after...
