    Great food, friendly service and central location. Very clean facilities. Decor in room a little tired but other than that was very happy with this hotel. Taxis at the door very useful too. Wished I had time to use the spa and fitness facilities!

    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

    Have stayed here plenty of times and it has always been a pleasant experience. Staff are fantastic. Great location, convenient to TSB arena and the waterfront. Clean rooms. Will be staying here again when we're next in Wellington.

    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...More

    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.

    Please define the available "laundry service." Is this a coin-operated on-site laundry or a service that picks up and delivers items to be laundered? Thank you.

    Thank you for your question. We offer a dry cleaning laundry service only, where your items are picked up and delivered, after being laundered. There are no coin-operated washing machines at the Hotel.
