Our first time at Wellesley Boutique Hotel will definitely not be our last. We've found our favourite Wellington sanctuary. Where have you been all our lives? Personality plus, great central location we couldn't want for anything more.

Exquisite place to stay. Beautiful and so comfortable. The room was warm, spacious and had so much charm. It was central and easy to get everywhere. I will absolutely stay here again next time I am down here. By the way, book on their website rather than Boooking or another site. It is easy to book and actually cheaper. I was grateful to discover that and happy to pass that info on to others.

This was my second stay at the Wellesley and it was perfect for an overnight in the city. I love the deep clawfoot bath and high ceilings. It was a very easy and comfortable place to stay, and very reasonably priced. I will be back.

This is a classic old building right in downtown Wellington. Close to gazillions of shops and restaurants, as as well as many attractions, including music from opera to whatever trend is next. Delightfully old fashioned rooms with all the modern conveniences Very friendly staff who will help you with all of your arrangements even if your a thick old guy like me! Definitely worth the upgrade to the exécutive level for the views and extra quiet, even though the lower, less expensive levels are more than adequate. We’ll definitely be back.
