I stayed for 2 nights with my family here. Apartment was very spacious. Has an induction cook top, which was very suitable for us since we wanted to cook our own food instead of spending so much eating in a restaurant. So that is definitely a plus. Fromt staff was professional. Had a nice swim in the self contained pool....

A very spacious pleasant apartment to spend 4 nights. In walking distance to most of central Wellington. Fully equipped. We had booked for a couple, but there was a second queen bed. Very large lounge. Bed extremely comfortable , great bathroom etc. the only negative was the swimming pool, which was wasn't pleasant, but one can cope without a swim....

Fully self contained apartment with a view into a carpark. The apartment was roomy for one. Modern, glass basins and tables give a clean and industrial feel. All amenities are here. Charge back available at a few cafes and restaurants, no in house restaurant. Great location! Would come back

Had a great stay here, loved the room and the staff were beyond helpful when I got stuck on my second day. The penthouse was a little dated looking but perfectly fine for our hens party once we dressed it up with balloons etc.

This is my second time at Distinction Wellington, once for a work trip and once for leisure. The front staff and very welcoming and the rooms are perfect for a couple of nights stay. It is within walking distance to Courtney Place, Cuba Street, Te Papa and Mount Victoria without busy main road noise at night. The room comes with...

Surprisingly air conditioning in many Wellington Hotels/Apartment doesn't seem to exist, so the only bad part is street noise if you want fresh air by leaving the window/sliding door open. No issue with room to room noise. Reasonably well equipped self contained apartment to make a hot brekky in the morning or basic dinner at night. Pretty good location to...

The Distinction was one of the few places that provided two separate bedrooms in an apartment style living that we could find. The location is great for night clubs, bars and restaurants (as is all Wellington). We walkeda round the city from here on a number of days and it was easy. Staff were friendly and helpful (24 hr desk)....

We stayed at Distinction Hotel in central Wellington. My room was a lot larger than I anticipated and was very comfortable. I was also on the inside so no views but no hassle. Only downside was the lifts took a bit of time to reach you, but overall great time had, made easier by great accommodation

Nice clean, modern room with seperate bedroom. Friendly and accommodation staff and only a short walk from everything!! Was a little disappointed that there was no tv in the bedroom and there was only one seat in the lounge area. Otherwise it was a great hotel and we will be back.

Spent 3 nights here on business. The room was dark with no view due to being hard up against the building next door. The one bedroom appt was comfortable, the bed a bit softer than I like but for 3 night's was ok. Shower over bath which had nice pressure and good hot water. The kitchen only had a frying...
