Nice clean, modern room with seperate bedroom. Friendly and accommodation staff and only a short walk from everything!! Was a little disappointed that there was no tv in the bedroom and there was only one seat in the lounge area. Otherwise it was a great hotel and we will be back.

Thank you for your comments. TV's in the bedrooms is something we are looking at for the future where we can put them in. Have a great Christmas. Kind regards Tony

Spent 3 nights here on business. The room was dark with no view due to being hard up against the building next door. The one bedroom appt was comfortable, the bed a bit softer than I like but for 3 night's was ok. Shower over bath which had nice pressure and good hot water. The kitchen only had a frying...

We arrived just before check in time and went straight to reception. We gave our details and it became clearly obvious, listening to reception staff, that not only was our room not ready, although we had booked a few weeks in advance, we had not even had a room allocated. We were asked to wait and a couple of minutes...

There wasn't anything particularly awful about my stay, just that it wasn't quite what I expected for the price and the way they position themselves as a higher-end offering. Pros: Location is pretty good to access Te Papa, Cuba Street and Courtenay Place Size of the room was fantastic, and having all the amenities in room was great. Blackout curtains...

Beautiful rooms which are laid out fantastically. Lounge, dining, separate bedroom and great bathroom. Highly recommended place to stay so close to town. Great service upon arrival and overall great experience.

I've stayed here before and returned as I was very pleased.

Distinction Hotel is really interesting in Wellington. The rooms are decent in terms of spacious enough, balconies etc. furniture is cheap and dated but it still is clean and works if that makes sense. Because of the balconies and the space I can make it work! Front loader washing machine/dryer which is always helpful, cheap bathroom towels. Bedsheets are white...

Stayed for just one night due to rearranged travel plans. The room had a little bit of a weird flow in how it's set up. Think NYC/Paris studio appt with a small balcony. In one room is the bed, stove/kitchenette large lounge chair and small kitchen table for two. Bathroom off the side. The staff was helpful, the room was...

We stayed for one night in a one-bedroom apartment. The hotel was chosen because it was conveniently situated for Te Papa, the National War Memorial Park and the restaurants in Courtenay Place and Cuba Street. The apartment was reasonably spacious, with a fully-equipped kitchen, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, shower over the bath and washing machine. The bedroom had a wardrobe, two bedside...
