Budget beauty perfectly placed for Wellington sights
Set within the heart of Wellington’s cultural, business, and entertainment districts, the Abel Tasman Hotel is a welcome haven for guests looking to explore the city’s charms at fabulously affordable prices. This is a three-star-rated hotel that has recently undergone complete refurbishment to become a cozy and stylish place to stay. Featuring the Bistro 169 restaurant, serving breakfast/brunch and dinner, and featuring a lovely outside patio, this smoke-free property also includes a spa tub and several meeting rooms suitable for business guests.

  • Within walking distance from many top Wellington attractions
  • Charm and style on a budget
  • Spa tub and restaurant on-site
Abel Tasman Hotel Rooms
The 73 guestrooms plus three suites in the Abel Tasman Hotel range from standard to superior, and all benefit from the hotel’s comprehensive refurbishment. Décor is simple yet elegant, with sturdy wooden beds and white bedding highlighted in red accents which recur throughout the hotel. Bedrooms include comfortable armchairs, bedside tables, and discreet lighting, with tea and coffee-making facilities and high speed Internet access available in all rooms (some fees may apply). Hair-dryers and complimentary (weekday) newspapers and toiletries are also included in the room package, and all accommodations are served by pleasant, modern bathrooms. In-room televisions include Sky TV and premium channels, and babysitting and room service are both offered (fees apply). Welcome touches include blackout drapes to ensure a peaceful night’s sleep, as well as air-conditioning and daily housekeeping. The Abel Tasman Hotel is warm and welcoming with considerable charm, and far more style and amenities than you might expect for a hotel of this caliber and price. The hotel features the attractive Bistro restaurant and benefits hugely from its excellent situation in vibrant, lively Wellington, a gorgeous seaside city renowned for its revamped waterfront, outstanding museums and café culture.

ok, noisy.

Nice facility, city center, close to ferry. Helpful staff. Biggest problem was a night school next door with students hanging out between classes. Noisy until late at night. Would request a room away from that.

Redirected Energy

When you walk in your pleasantly surprised at how nice it is. A well decorated boutique hotel. The restaurant and bar are the same, nicely decorated, inviting, and comfy. The rooms on the other hand are bland and cluttered with shelving and cabinets. The room, compared to the lobby and restaurant was disappointing. I would have given the restaurant better scores but the $22.50 continental breakfast consisted of fruit, cereal, breads and coffee.

Basic hotel, great staff

Old building that has been refurbished. Cheap rooms are very basic, but quite large. Bathroom was big. TV old, ceiling was plain soundboard, no colour or art on the walls. However, staff were excellent in the hotel and restaurant.
