We were quite comfortable at the Capital View, and thoroughly enjoyed our conversations with Mark, the proprietor. He was very kind and helpful in providing us with information on Wellington, and even offered to keep the keys to our rental car to hand-off to the agent who would be picking it up the following day. Our room was on an...

We stayed in this hotel in December and found it comfortable, clean and located in a really handy area right near the centre of town. We were a group made up of 2 adults, 3 children and 1 infant and stayed in a studio room, which was surprisingly roomy. Staff are friendly and helpful and I would definitely stay there...

Finding a reasonable motel with parking in Wellington was our goal, and this worked well. The motel is just a block away from the top of Cuba St. This allowed us to walk to restaurants and various attractions in the city since parking in town is difficult. Our studio apartment had a very large room and nice bathroom plus kitchen...

Stopped in Wellington to visit the Weta cave. Great place to stay in Wellington - very friendly and welcoming manager who took time out to pass on directions etc. Great unit, very clean and comfortable. Close to Cuba Street and easy walk to town. Don't forget to say hello to Dudley the dog! Excellent and would definitely stay again!

We stayed for 2 nights and really enjoyed our stay. From the professional yet friendly check in with Mark to the very clean rooms everything was great. Free parking when staying so close to the city is a great added bonus. Whenever we are in Wellington we will stay here.

We spent 2 nights here and enjoyed our stay. The reception from Lorraine was very pleasant - she gave us ideas of where to go for a choice of restaurants and was generally very helpful. Off street parking was a real plus. Our room looked out over the harbour and was comfortable. The kitchenette was useful. This is a great...
