      Like the size/design of the room. All facilities we needed. Great view

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      It has great views of Wellington Harbour. Very comfortable, clean room, plenty of space, nice staff.

      Breakfast is very pricey, could have been included in the room price such as is normally the case in the uk and Europe.

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      A very pleasant, well located hotel. Efficient staff, well equipped rooms, comfortable beds, and a good breakfast. Fine dining.

      staff were very helpful - room was available at 8 am!

    • Older travelers

      So close to all activities in Wellington

      Our room was not serviced until we alerted staff to this at 4pm the day after our first night. (We were booked for two)

      Great staff and lovely rooms with views

      Very expensive breakfasts

    • Older travelers

      Budget allowing, would stay at the Amora again. So close to everything in the city. Worth paying a bit more to have harbour views and access to the club lounge. Very friendly staff.

    • Couple
      9.2

      We loved the centralness of the hotel to the city and waterfront

    • Group of friends

      Good location.

      Air conditioning was so noisy I couldnt sleep.

    • Single
      10.0

      I treated myself as a single traveller to the higher price of a club room for an extra $55 and it was excellent - I would do it again. Thank you I was treated special with every courtesy shown.

    • Couple

      Close to all city ammenities

      Everytime i tried to have a shower the water ceased working for at least five minutes, i think that if someone else was having a shower at the same time we had no water, which at a big hotel is dissapointing especially if you are in a rush.

    • Older travelers
      8.8

      We appreciated the room and the view, and its location.

    • Older travelers
      9.2

      The views, room was nice, comfortable bed.

      I found the air conditioing unit a bit noisy at night. No tea bags in room

    • Single
      6.2

      The rooms are too dark. At night if you want to do some work etc the amount of light in the rooms is poor.

    • Single
      8.8

      When the staff lost the keys to my rental car they put things right. (They turned up in the end before I was due back at the airport)

      The windows made a lot of noise in the high winds.
