Accommodation close to Wellington Airport

Hi guys,

My husband and I are heading to NZ at the end of April and fly into Wellington. We don't get in until quite late so I am after some suggestions on accommodation for the night which is close to the airport and ideally has an airport shuttle service that we can utilise. It doesn't have to be anything fancy (unless there is a good special on :-P), just after something that is decent, clean and good service. Happy to pay around the $100 - $120 AUD mark, give or take a bit.

Any recommendations would be much appreciated!

Thanks :-)

Wellington Airport is barely 15 min from downtown and shuttle services will operate until the last flight so my recommendation is to choose a central hotel and head straight there.

Have a look at www.wotif.co.nz - picking random dates in late April it would seem that the Novotel, Copthorne James Cook and Mercure Apts are within your price range - as is the Wotif "Mystery Hotel"!!

I agree you don't need to spend the night close to the airport, if you're on one of the flights that arrive late from Australia you may as well head straight for town via taxi or one of the shuttles at the airport, if your hotel doesn't provide transfers. I'm not sure exactly what your budget comes to in NZ dollars, but it looks at the lower end for Wellington - if you are here over a weekend you might get a discounted package at one of the mid-range hotels - and the discount sites are also worth a look. Otherwise you may be looking at some of the cheaper options such as the Ibis or similar. Most of Wellington's hotel traffic is business-oriented so weekend packages tend to be cheaper. If you are here over ANZAC weekend it's probably worth booking as soon as you can as plenty of locals will be taking holidays that weekend.
