What a great change from the humdrum of chain hotels - my room was well appointed, warm and large. The bathroom had two basins, large shower and bath. It's a quaint hotel, providing a great alternative to the standard fare in Wellington - even to ride the old fashioned elevator. I will be back!
Great place. Luxurious bedroom with excellent facilties. Huge shower as well as a bath. Good coffee, in a plunger, but hot chocolate and real coffee were not replenished for the second night. Convenient to Lambton Quay, shops, museums, cable car etc etc. Delightful antique lift. Easy to get to from the airport on the airport flyer. A great weekend
This hotel is very nice and rooms are very clean and spacious. You feel like home when you stay in this hotel. Also, location of the hotel is close to all major attractions in CBD. Free unlimited Wi-Fi available on each floor. The hotel is value for money and I am looking forward to stay again in this hotel next time.
Good central location, older style building with huge rooms. The bathroom (which had a bath and separate shower) alone would be the size of an average modern hotel room. Very spacious. Friendly, helpful staff.
I had a really comfortable room, everything of a good standard & totally free good wifi. Its so close to shopping and waterfront but a quiet street. The unique thing is the traditional decor and architecture. You just don't see or experience this in a modern hotel. This place is a classic and the awesome old lift is from a begone era. Worth staying here just to experience this.
A wonderful old work hotel - wonderful lift experience - just needed a lift attendant as you would find at David Jones I stayed in 407 - 4 th floor - the Top Floor, quiet as it faces the internal light shaft. Well appointed room but missed a desk! A good size bathroom with a bath but does need the bleach treatment to control mould growing in places Ease of access to Lambton Quay
Always have a great night staying at the Wellesley. Each room is a little unique and has an old world feel without loosing modern conveniences. Great location near Lambton Quay and the Beehive. I've not had breakfast hear, but I've heard great things about the food from colleagues.
The Wellesley is a great place to stay if you appreciate some old world charm. My room was a little on the dark side, so if you prefer light and bright, you may have to inquire on that point. I liked this aspect of it as I was looking for a sense of enclosure and seclusion, so the lighting wasn't an issue. Staff were lovely, very helpful, providing umbrellas and advice on getting around in Wellington. I'd definitely stay again.
Stayed here second time. Very nice historic place in the heart of Wellington. Stuff I'd helpful and friendly, rooms are spotless clean. Walking distance from shops, cafes and restaurants. Will definitely come back there.
Loved this little hotel, can't beat the location. The food a bit ho hum, but fine if you don't feel like going out. Heaps of wonderful places to eat nearby. My room had the biggest bath and I had just finished hiking so really appreciated it. The bed was the most comfortable I have had for years. I'm not often in Wellington but if I am will stay here.
