Pleasantly surprised with this hotel, good location, very clean, good staff and would recommend. Breakfast was probably the only disappointment, not very imaginative, typical buffet. Reception staff very friendly and informative

Nice modern looking hotel, which we found it pretty rare in new zealand. Service at the front desk was good. Room clean , nice bedding, bath tub everything was good except there is no free wifi 😳👎🏻 which we found it disappointing, even the cheapest motel we stay offer some limited quota base wifi. Good point is that this hotel... More

Tasteful decorated with a veiw of the sea, lovely comfy bed and amenities as one would expect. Staff at front desk very helpful with taxis required and the check in and... More

Quick and easy check in with a few goodies for the kids (they loved their little gifts). We had adjoining rooms which worked well for us with 3 primary aged kids. The rooms were clean and good sizes, It was lovely to have a shower/bath in one and a walk in shower in the other. The location was great -... More

As an Accor Advantage member, I chose to stay at Novotel Wellington for a business trip one week after the Earthquakes. I have to say that the staff were the most courteous and helpful that I can recall staying at any hotel. From the moment they welcomed me at the taxi, to recalling and organising that I needed fast speed... More

Stayed two nights...good location and staff very obliging...used concierge parking service...$30.00 per day as opposed to self parking for $20.00...Wellington had experienced a major earthquake prior to our stay so changed our reservation from 10th floor to 1st just in case...staff we're very understanding in dealing with guest queries and concerns...would definitely use this property again...

Stayed for 2 nights. Room clean and an OK size. Breakfast had lots of choices. Lifts were either not working or very slow and the hotel did not seem to be in a rush to fix them. I'd return due to the price and proximity to the CBD.
