Excellent helpfulness at checkin, room servicing was very good, breakfasts were of a very good quality and the overall standard of presentation equally so. The convenient access to the adjacent shopping and dining precinct was particularly pleasing. Checkout was managed in a way that complemented our overall experience.

Was a great experience to stay so close to the city Centre, would of liked a small sink to fill up jug as doing it in the bathroom is not ideal, otherwise great room, excellent service, amazing location

Although I have stayed here many times in the past when working, it was a pleasure to return now that I have retired to find the very high standard offered by this hotel and its staff is still the same.

The hotel itself was nice and in a great central location, but the unexpected carparking stung us half the price we paid for the hotel itself so totally not worth it. $50 for overnight is ridiculous!!

A great price but the aircon sounded like a jet taking off! The room was hot in summer and it needed to be on which made for an interrupted night's sleep. One of us had hot water in the shower whereas rhe other one didn't - odd! Good price, overall an average room.

Room ok. Could have done with running water, a sink and cooking facility. Valet service was awesome. There was always someone available to meet the family's needs. Great access to room via the lift. The best experience was breakfast.

2 minutes away from Wellington's main shopping belt and attractions (Cable car, Beehive, Waterfront). Grand Chancellor Staff made us feel welcome and went out of their way to make our stay a memorable experience.

Good location being in the heart of the CBD so we were able to walk everywhere that we needed to. Buffet breakfast was very nice and great views from the restaurant. No views from our hotel room window - just looked out into an internal part of the hotel so no chance of being able to open a window to...
