We always stay here when we go to Wellington. The staff are all very friendly and helpful. The hotel itself is well appointed, clean, with awesome harbour views. A short walk to Te Papa, theaters, restaurants and main shopping areas.

Close to the city and lots of restaurants within walking distance. Beds are comfortable, showers are good but breakfast was overpriced. Lovely view from dining room across the city and harbour. Quiet rooms, adequate for conference/business and weekend breakaways. No AC

I cant speak well enough about the place. I stay here whenever I can as its close to the Wellington CBD and it has a great buffet breakfast. The family room is spacious and its right across the road from the beach.

Stayed here two nights in the "Vista Wing" of the hotel which definitely met my requirements. First impressions of the hotel was good, it had a nice entrance and lobby area. However lack of places to stop to unload the car was a bit of a pain (particularly in a larger vehicle) they did offer valet parking for $28 a...

Large and comfortable room with lovely harbor view. Easy access for the airport and walking distance to the vibey waterfront area at the port. Good breakfast and restaurant, although many restaurants and cafes are within easy walking distance. Friendly, efficient and helpful staff.

Was a little disappoint as pool was unfortunately closed during stay, although we were offered vouchers for pool down the road not quite the same as walking there in a robe.

An entree and glass of wine is sometimes all that one needs to satisfy the palate. The chefs signature dish is an absolute delight visually and sensorally. Cured salmon with jewels of exquisite flavour accents - the caviar pearls burst on the tongue and the best tease is the creme fraiche which fools the palate sensing an exceptional creamy goats...
