Mercure Wellington Abel Tasman

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Just an overnight stay before work but as an Accor member always appreciate the free drink voucher and late Check outs! Just got a basic room but was tidy and prewarmed with a heater. Sky TV, fridge, comfy beds. So close to many dining options. Desk staff helpful. Would recommend

We stayed here because of it's location and being central to everything within the city. Hotel is getting a little tired but still clean and comfortable enough and of course you can hear a lot of street noise in your room. Desk service not the greatest but overall the Hotel served its purpose.

When you first walk in it reeks luxury, majestic hallway boasts a magnificent chandler, large gold well placed mirrors and splashes of red brings the whole entrance way together however that's where the luxury ends. While it is clean and comfortable good strong service, all smiles and great service from reception to the restaurant. If you are wanting to be in the middle of the city then this hotel is in walking distance of the Quay and other major attractions. In its hay day this would've been at least 4 star now it needs a lot of work done on it to raise it back up. Carpets are stained and in some part threadbare. My bedroom only had room for my double bed which was adequately comfortable. The paint on walls chipping the skirting boards need work. Everything basically needs to be updated. Low pressure shower, no heat or air flow so when you get out of shower the mirror is full of steam, not seen that in a long while. However I'd rather stay in a clean run down place then a dirty modern one. If you not into luxury and want pricing then this would suit that purpose.

Very well situated on Willis Street at the junction of Dixon Street. The staff are superb and we had a buffet breakfast held in the conference room as part of our deal and the breakfast was fine. The main issue is that Willis Street is a very busy Road, through the night and the hotel only has single glazing so traffic noise is an issue, there are packs of ear plugs in your room but we only found them on the morning we were leaving after spending 4 nights. Cleaning is to a high standard and crisp clean sheets and fresh towels were welcome. As I said the staff were excellent.

We enjoyed the stay here as it was located in the heart of the city. The room was nice and was quite modern and the king bed comfortable. Only downside was the bathroom which could do with an upgrade as it was dated.

First time ever staying in Wellington and I was pretty excited about this aspect. We arrived at the hotel after driving to Wellington from Auckland. Obviously having a car, we expected to put our car in the carpark which the hotel provided. Little did we know it was going to cost us $29 per night, and we were there 2 and it cost us enough staying there. We've stayed many places in cities and none have been as expensive as that. It put a big downer on the start of our time in Wellington. To top that off, you could barely park the car in the tiny space they provided. Should not of charged $29. Finally get to the room and it was just so disappointing. Stains on the carpet, bathroom was outdated and tired, I've had better standards in motels. The toilet seat was so used and old, it was disgusting. There were long hairs all over the room, all over the bathroom. Honestly it was disgusting. I wore sandals in the shower I didn't trust it had been cleaned properly. Only good thing about the room was the bed was very comfortable, best night sleep I'd had at a hotel. Hotel was in a good location. Overall I would not go back.

You can find a quiet and peaceful place to stay here, and you can also easily access some interesting places in the heart of Wellington, even just by walk! The hotel is also close to some shopping centres and outlets of Wellington.

Mercure Wellington Abel Tasman Hotel is centrally located and with in easy reach of the the main attractions of Wellington. The room was tidy and clean. The hotel has a bistro style restaurant on site and there are other dining options near by.

Stayed here for a couple of nights while on business. Great location in the CBD with on site parking available. Rooms are a reasonable size and very comfortable. Everything is well within walking distance and if you don't feel like dinning on site it is surrounded by great quality bars and restaurants.

Stayed there around a week ago. I arrived quite late and it's hard to find a parking spot since the hotel is located in the city centre of Wellington. There is a Wilson garage next to the hotel, but I think it's quite expensive for the night. This is Mercure and especially Accorhotel group, so I don't expect too much. The rate I paid was only about 100 NZD, too. So basically you got what you paid for including overheated room. For me it was OK since I prefer warm room rather than a cold one, but I can imagine in the summer that's gonna be a hell for you since they don't have any air conditioning system. What I saw there was just a table fan - have fun with that in the summer. If you open the window, it's gonna be a nightmare as well since you'll hear the traffic and all those car horns and sirenes even in the night. Just like any other Accor hotels, the stay bonus and points didn't post correctly in my account. While 1 night stay might be OK, I'd say look for other hotel options in Wellington.
