          The James Cook Hotel Grand Chancellor is my first choice for Wellington accommodation, whether for business or pleasure. The hotel's main point of difference, apart from its fantastic location, is its people. The service is of a consistently high standard. I would unreservedly recommend it.

          Please define the available "laundry service." Is this a coin-operated on-site laundry or a service that picks up and delivers items to be laundered? Thank you.

          Thank you for your question. We offer a dry cleaning laundry service only, where your items are picked up and delivered, after being laundered. There are no coin-operated washing machines at the Hotel.
