We came from staying at rydges in Auckland and had a good experience. When we arrived in Wellington at 6 pm there was No one to help with bags. That's ok, we are a self sufficient family. Was then told the valet was not available, "sorry, it's full, we only have one very small space left". We rented a Toyota...

We stayed in a King Superior Room and were lucky to have a 180 degree view of the waterfront to the Beehive. The bathroom was well appointed although being over 6 foot made the shower over the bath a little awkward to negotiate. We chose a package which included the buffet breakfast which was nothing short of excellent. The choice...

This was a great hotel - excellent location for the city and waterfront. The pool and spa were a bonus and the beds very comfortable. I also found the staff very pleasant. Breakfast was great with a good variety and the restaurant and bar excellent.

The good: Great comfy bed, good location - very close to shops and restaurants, friendly staff. The bad: Curtains wouldn't close properly, shower went freezing cold half way through, room service food was cold (although it was delivered very quickly). I've stayed in better in Wellington and can't imagine I'd come back here again. Dinner in the Portlander was nice...

We stayed for 2 nights. The hotel is centrally located downtown, we were able to explore the city by foot. The room and all the facilities were excellent, the reception staff very friendly and helpful. The bed was very comfortable, on the luxury side. The free wifi worked very well. Plenty of coffee shops and restaurants within 15 min of...

If you are looking for a good hotel in the Cbd, this should fit the budget for its service. The beds are super comfy. Rooms are decent size and view out is good although not sea facing. Room service is quick. Staff are courteous. Portlander, which is their native restaurant; offers lip smacking meals and an expensive buffet. A thorough...
