Family Gettogether

Was pleasantly surprised to be told that we had out room upgraded, a nice gesture. Room needs a little do up but otherwise good. Perhaps a bit of soundproofing between rooms too! Staff very pleasant and helpful and the breakfast is good value.

Pleasant Hotel with nice bathroom

First time staying at Abel Tasman. A discounted stay from Rates to Go made the room good value. We found the bed seemed small for 2 people. Bathroom was lovely and clean and spacious although the fan on 24/7 was annoying at night. Carpet was very stained in 2 areas, but otherwise the room was clean and warm. We were given 3 towels which was a bonus - Perhaps due to the fact that there was a single bed in room also. Hairdryer good. Coffee/tea selection average. Pillows selection poor - Either high and firm or lumpy. Staff pleasant. Coffee great in Bistro.

Close to markets/food court which opened late last year. Close to bus stop/airport flyer on Manners too - Mostly undercover to get there.

Good basic service.Excellent cafe for breakfast, with great service.

Good value but location a drawback - you need taxis or a long walk to get to anywhere important, eg Lampton Quay and Courtenay Places cafes.

Not quite what we expected

The staff were very friendly and helpful but the hotel quality and facilities were not nearly as good as we expected. Noisy (other guests and road noise) and cold rooms with all lights failing in one of the rooms three times.

great break

Enjoyed my stay, went to NZ Archives, also did the tourist thing- Te papa, Botanic Gardens, heaps of walking and buses(using my gold card) staff really helpful, gave me directions, rang me when my room was ready, did my check in for air ticket, booked taxi for me, couldn't have asked for more. Restaurant staff very pleasant but meal size of their special offer was very meagre so only ate there once for dinner.

Was Expecting More

I had previously had the impression this hotel was one of the better ones in wellington but was a little disappointed. The room advertised said it was a double bed and a single but the double bed was 2 single beds pushed together. One bed was firmer and higher than the other so my husband & I had to sleep on opposite sides of the bed instead of snuggling in the middle like you usually do otherwise it was all uneven. Cupboard doors needed some attention, hinges were loose. We could also hear the people in the next room quite clearly from our room so we turned the tv up to drown out their noise which they probably didn't appreciate either.
