Too many small details combined leaving a bad feeling about the stay. Bathroom issues, toilet issue, safety issue with a peep hole out of reach, internet not working (fortunately I had no professional use for it this time so did not even mention it), overpriced restaurant. I would not consider any of then a real issue but all of them...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 26 February 2017

The James Cook Hotel is long established and lives up to its great reputation. Central location means you have a short walk to the Golden Mile shopping precinct and numerous conference facilities, government and businesses. Helpful staff and hotel has recently been renovated

Great location, friendly & helpful staff. Close to good walks, entertainment and Wellington's key exhibitions, galleries and tourist attractions. If you like to sleep with a window open it is wise to ask specifically at the start of your stay.

Excellent stay. Room was very clean. We are B and B operators with 9.9 grade so when we say it's clean we really mean it. Good wifi and sky tv. Staff pleasant and helpful. Bed a bit hard but comfortable.

The location is right down town and you can walk to city centre shops and waterfront easily. We stayed in a standard room and it was clean but quite dated. It was like being in hotel several decades ago.

Had a comfortable stay at James Cook GrandChanceki Enjoyed a comfortable stay at the James Cook Grand Chancellor. The buffet breakfast very extensive and generous. The Club on 26th floor provides extensive views and good happy hour and worth paying the premium

Breakfast is amazing, make sure you get this included. Valet parking was a bit of a pain, I would have probably ubered or taxied everywhere if I'd realised how annoying it would be. Lovely staff, nice clean room. WIFI is amazing. I would highly reccommend
