                    9.6

                    Loved the location just so central,Loved the room and the cleanliness the decor and the warmth.Loved the bath.

                    I thought the staff were quick and efficient but not overly friendly.A polite welcome but certainly not a warm one.

                  • Single
                    7.8

                    a quiet comfortable room with everything I needed for a night's stay.

                  • Older travelers
                    8.2

                    While we may not have made use of the spa or other services the hotel has a great central city location, Enjoyed two of our meals at Whitbys . A pleasant weekend break.

                    Not working in an airconditioned office we found difficulty sleeping without being able to open windows However understand why this is not possible.

                  • Family with children
                    8.8

                    Very private staff are very helpful. Great views and facilities. Excellent access to the City shopping centre.

                    We are first time guest to Wellington we found the car entrance very distacting. We were intimidated by the cars behind us so we parked up in the city car park next door then walked to the hotel and asked for advise.Other wise the service and hotel were excellent, I will be back again.

                  • Single
                    9.2

                    Close to city, convenience for activities

                    I did not like the mexican food on offer-would have been nice to have plainer dinner options on the buffet

                  • Single
                    7.0

                    The room was well presented, central, safe and secure and good for business with valet parking available. Easy access to motorways etc. Good value for money as standard of accommodation in Wellington is atrocious - either substandard or 5 star and hugely expensive. Unlike other cities there are no modern, clean, affordable motels - just dodgy motels or expensive hotels with no cooking facilities.

                    Expensive parking, no microwave

                    We were upgraded to an Executive Suite with no extra cost, which was wonderful, wanted to stay longer!

                    We liked the friendlyness of the staff, especially the men at the desk being so helpful with parking our car etc. The bed was so comfortable, wish we could have stayed longer!

                    As I had been ill recently, walking across the walkway on Floor 20 was very disconcerting! However, it was a challenge, and I like to extend myself - I may not be able to be in that particular room again! (2001)

                    We had an excellent room, a particularly comfortable bed and more accessories than I have ever seen - even down to paper clips.

                    Excellent service. We will book again.

                    The parking was expensive. Resaurant was little expensive. The restaurant didn't cater for vegans or vegitarians.
