InterContinental Wellington

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Wellington Intercontinental Hotel is a five star property located in central Wellington, not far from the waterfront. Within walking distance are several great restaurants, the main shopping area, and the Wellington Cable Car. The rooms are spacious, well appointed, and clean, with sufficient space for baggage etc. Staff are very professional. I would definitely consider staying here again if I should return to Wellington.

Easy access to everything downtown Wellington has to offer. The 7th floor lounge and staff is a must.

We booked really in advance and got a great deal! Price was excellent and the service was fantastic! Comfortable and clean rooms, excellent wait staff and all concerns / requests were met with excellent performance. Staff was helpful with tourist questions and concern, and got us to many places on time. Breakfast was plentiful and represented the culture well. Great chefs. Would definitely book again if finding ourselves in Wellington ever again.

perfectly located by the wharf/harbour -- walking distance to Te Papa(National Museum of New Zealand). Staff was incredibly accomodating and helpful. Room had all the amenities, albeit on the small side. would stay again

We stayed 2 nights at the intercontential and had a great time. The gym was very nice for hotel standards and free. We utilized the concierge service many times as it was expensive to pay for Internet. They were consistently professional, attentive and helpful. The location was great and we walked to Te Papa museum, Courtneay and Cuba Street as well as the Cable cars.

Just stayed there.

I was promised a phone call when the room was ready but "it didn't go through". Perhaps the "InterContinental" check-in desk can't make international calls. I suspect they never tried. We went back and apparently the room was ready but the bath towels and soap were missing and the hand towels were dirty. Throughout our four day stay, the Business Center was never staffed. There's no wifi. Internet access costs $10 for half an hour or some such ridiculous rate. The food at the Chameleon lived up to its pretensions, which is fair praise indeed. Service, though, could have been more attentive. Every night and morning, watch the maitre d' fiddle with her computer for minutes before one of the waiters notices you "waiting to be seated" and takes pity. Yeah, you could cough, but why should you have to? You could die of thirst waiting for a refill. New Zealand is full of great coffee, so don't touch the regular joe at the InterContinental. I could sleep fine on a soft bed or a fairly hard bed but not this bed. The seemingly warn-out mattress offered very little support. They did take good care of our bags on the first and last days. When I needed first aid, the concierge was helpful and knowledgeable. The gym guy really tried. Well, it was pretty cheap, at ~150 USD / night.
