Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed at the Capital View for three nights as part of our tour of New Zealand. It has a great location, just a few minutes walk from a range of restaurants and Wellington sights. The rooms are spacious and we had a studio which appeared to have been recently refurbished and was immaculately clean, with kitchenette, one separate bedroom and a double in the living room, plus private bathroom. The studio has a great view over the city. Other reviewers have commented on noise, but we didn't find it noisy.

The layout in the main room was slightly odd, with the TV facing the bed rather than the sofa, which meant that TV watching meant piling onto the bed! Not a problem, but just a bit of a strange set up. There's parking at the property too, which was a great bonus.

Hi Carole, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us. We are delighted you found most things to your satisfaction and you enjoyed your time here and the views over the city your room provided. Most of the time it is relatively quiet here, but on occasions there are people who don't consider others when staying as you might find in any place providing accommodation. Hope you had a great trip, all the best for the future. Kind regards, Mark & Lorraine Cunneen

This is like a small hotel in that the rooms are located over 5 floors with an elevator. This is not a problem unless you have a lot of things to take to the room because you are self-catering thus you need to make several trips up and down. It is very conveniently located close to lots of restaurants on Cuba Street and only about a 20 min. walk to the Te Papau museum. The room was very clean and comfortable. The kitchen appropriately equipped and the shower very good.

The motel goes through an upgrade and that is a good thing. The rooms are basic motel rooms. But the pricing is reasonable. Especially because the motel is so conveniently located, almost at the top of Cuba Street. The sink in the bathroom of the room we had was too low and too small. The towel rack is small, but it is a heated one. Staff is very friendly and accommodated the request the have the car parked a little longer after check out. When we return in Wellington, I will contact them again to stay.

The rooms are large and our room had a double bed and a single bed with a kitchen. It was quiet and had a view over Wellington. It has good parking. My only minor complaint is that the room is looking a little dated but reading over reviews may be our room was waiting to be re-furbished. Close to the road with lots of restaurants.

Very clean, good value, good location, lovely staff.
We had 2 queen studios, one had queen bed plus a single, the other had queen bed and 2 singles.
We arrived late due to flight delays- staff member - Athena? - was very kind and helpful. Thank you very much for your patience.
We have stayed here several times over the last few years and definitely recommend it.

A recent trip with young grand daughter required us to be close to the city and in easy walking distance to most of the Wellington highligts. Capital View certainly provided well in every aspect. So clean, with modern, comfortable furnishings and bedding. will certainly stay again when visiting Wellington

Great location to stay, room was clean and very nice. Good view over city.Price is good. Bit dissapointed when we asked about the sky t.v and found it was removed around lockdown with covid. Compendium still shows sky channels available and it still has a large sky sticker on the front door. Rooms are quiet but a bit noisy through the entrance door into the room. Won't stop us staying here again though.

Although advertised as having sky TV this was not available. Advertised as having daily servicing or rooms but ours was nnt serviced, we arrived to find the fridge was not turned on luckily we realised this but had we not our food might have gone off.
Nowhere in the bathroom to put anything, there had clearly been hooks on the back of the door at one point but no more.

Great facilities and handy to eateries in Cuba St. Just don’t expect to watch tv as it doesn’t work, just get frequent interruptions with no signal- very annoying. The manager looked at it and still couldn’t get it to work.
Bed comfy and small kitchenette.

Situated just round the corner from Cuba St which is great for bars and cafés.
Off street parking which for those with a car is crucial.
We were walking or using public transport and found the place easily.
Friendly and helpful welcoming owner. Excellent instructions for after hours access as we arrived into Welly at midnight.
Nice quiet area which made for a peaceful night's sleep.
Room slightly dated but this did not detract from the fact that the standard of cleanliness, kitchen & bathroom facilities, etc were excellent and the bed was very comfortable.
Easy to walk up to Mt Vic for some exercise.
We'd definitely stay there again
