Very good 8.2 From 1,167 reviews

Exceptional 10.0
Comfortable stay
Very comfortable stay downtown.
Greg, us2 night trip
Good 6.0
I stayed at the James Cook a week earlier and had a wonderful room on the 19th floor. This time I was on the 12th overlooking the small inter-atrium. The room was fine except that it was incredibly loud. The water flowing through the plumbing from above sounded like a water fall and I would hear the person next door on the phone (and he wasn't talking loudly).
Scott, us1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Bland refurbished rooms
In Wellington for WOW. Given a refurbished room which was bland but bathrooms now have walk in shower. A little noisy in mornings due to ongoing refurbishment. Great location.
Janet, nz4 night romance trip

Everything was great except we had a crying baby in the next room which kept waking us.
