The additional cost of a Club Room is repaid several times over in all the extras that are included. Well worth the extra cost!

Great hotel;Super Location

Book a Club Room. Great value for the $. Evening wine/beer/ snacks, plus a full breakfast in the AM. Truly a great hotel, except for really poor internet service. Best spot in Wellington.

Duxton Hotel, Wellington

We stayed three nights in September 2010. The hotel was comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful. It was well situated, close to the harbor waterfront and Te Papa Museum. There are many good restaurants within a short walk from the hotel. Overall, our stay was a pleasant one and we would stay there again. Don't miss Te Papa Museum. Also, Zealandia is a rare treat and the tour of Parliament is very interesting.
