Pros: This is a nice hotel in a good location. the staff are friendly but somewhat ineffectual in relation to our issues.
The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. the bathroom was generous and well appointed.
There is a reasonable gym and a small lap pool
Cons: We had a bad room: the air-conditioning did not work for all of the three nights we stayed there. So the nights were stuffy and had to leave a door open until the noise was too much. This room is right under the restaurant kitchen so we got a lot of floor noise especially at cleaning up time from 10 pm till after midnight and then again for breakfast in the morning. We know kitchens make noise so they can't be criticised but it was a bad choice to locate a room underneath. We did not eat there at all. There are many good restaurants nearby with prices and menus that are more attractive. I understand the hotel has been refurbished but I did not think for the price we should have had to discover the problems.
Pros: Staff were super friendly and accommodating. There is a modern and boutique style room, the staff happily changed my room and made my stay enjoyable. Rooms were large with a very comfortable bed. Also had an espresso coffee machine in the room!

Pros: The location was perfect. The room was clean and the beds are very comfortable.
Cons: We interacted with 2 staff members from the front desk. One was incredibly helpful and kind. The other was rude and acted as though we were just 'stupid tourists' despite the fact that I would imagine a lot of their business is from tourism. When we valet parked our car, they required that we go down to get our luggage from the vehicle and then had to walk back up the ramp against traffic - very odd considering we paid $34 for one night of parking. Then, seeing how we are not from NZ, and discussed our travels, we were not aware that we had to put our card into this slot near the door to engage any power. This was not obvious to us, and it is not customary in hotels in the US. When we called down to ask if they had an idea why our AC wasn't working, the woman (who also worked with us at the front desk) was clearly irritated with us and acted as though we were idiots. While this seems like a small collection of interactions, it left a very poor taste in my mouth in regards to my stay at Novotel Wellington.
