Mercure Wellington Abel Tasman

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel is dated and due for a good refurbishment. No air condition in the room. There is a stand fan. And a heating panel. And the windows are single glaze. Glad I’m not there during winter. The lift button doesn’t quite light up. TV remote doesn’t quite work.

The room is fine-spacious and well appointed. Restaurant dreadful-Very slow service and meal was inedible. I wonder if the fact that I was dining alone led to bad service and being treated as unimportant. If you are a woman travelling alone avoid this hotel.

The old Abel Tasman has seen better days. The rooms are functional but tatty and poorly insulated. The central location means it is very noisy and the lack of air conditioning means you have to have the windows open and the provided pedestal fan on high speed! The cleaners barged into our room without knocking at 07:45. The carpark is really only suitable for a very small car. Overall disappointing and unbecoming of the Accor brand, one which can normally be relied on!

Friendly staff which gives you good information. Quick check in. Large room with a large and good bed. Good bathroom with a nice shower. Shops and restaurants nearby. Good location and value for money.

A bit outdated but decent enough for what they charge. Location is great close to everything in Wellington CBD. Just need a little of TLC on the premises as everything is starting to look old and outdated.

One of the worst hotels I've stayed in, particularly for the high price paid. Booked 2 rooms for 2 people but they messed up the booking and supplied 1 room for 4 people. The room was old and dated and noise from the street prevented a good night's sleep. Very poor service.

The hotel is well located in the city, but is of poor quality. It displays the Mercure livery, and appears to be an annexe to the main Mercure in Wellington, however there doesn't appear to be an practical connection such as use of the main Mercure pool or other facilities. During warm weather it is necessary to have the windows open as there is no A.C. - look in your bedside cabinet and the hotel has thoughtfully provided ear plugs against the traffic noise outside.

Overall an enjoyable 2 nights at the Mercure Abel Tasman. The rooms were good quality recently refurbished and the location in the centre of Wellington is ideal for getting around. There is hotel parking available so the car can be parked securely. This does cost $26 per night but is convenient and probably is less than Parking elsewhere. The pros above just about outweigh the cons which are there is no air conditioning in the rooms and with having windows open leads to traffic etc noise especially at night which may effect a good nights sleep.

Unfortunately this Hotel is Old and dated. Right in the best location BUT the road noise was horrendous, No air conditioning and old curtains which did not keep out the heat or sun, No power point for hair dryers in the bathroom and no power point near the mirror but over in a corner away from the desk \. Not a very pleasant stay. Probably the worst Hotel we have stayed in on eight overseas trips. Would not recommend.

There is no air conditioning so staying in the current sweltering heat was a bit uncomfortable. There is a fan in the room but I still had to keep the window open too. As I faced a multistorey car park, this meant noise until late! But the bed was comfy and staff pleasant. Not a hotel I’d choose to stay at in summer though!
