          We stayed here for one night and have no complaints. Check in was smooth, the room was not ridiculously small as some hotel rooms are. The bed was comfortable and the AC worked well. Breakfast (which was included in our room rate) in Whitby's Restaurant...More

          Concierge was less than friendly! Rooms are looking tired with mismatched furniture and wrinkled carpet. Location is good but having to travel up in the public elevator is rather dodgy. You don't feel very secure at night time.

          Easy place to stay for City access. Good location with reasonable size rooms and access to Terrace and Lambton Quay. Great staff always happy to help. Reliable known quality for the business traveller.

          Excellent Service from all the staff and great location in the heart of the city. Staff friendly and very helpful when asked for advice on finding places to visit in and around Wellington. Would stay there again for future vacations.

          Have stayed at James Cook a number of times. The rooms well appointed, quite roomy, comfortable and always feel fresh. No city noise makes for a peaceful stay. Location excellent with the city only a lift ride away. Would definitely stay here again.

          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.
