"Location was good"

Maudes1, 4/5 Reviewed 3rd October 2018 on TripAdvisor.com

Reception staff were nice, especially the trainee. Rooms were very dated and bedding not up to standard of other Mecure that we have stayed. Good location for getting to Cuba Street. Request room away from lifts.

"Clean, Efficient and Convenient Location"

Douglas, 4 Star Review Received 13th March 2018 from Trip Advisor

Stayed 2 nights in a 2nd floor balcony apartment on our trip to the Coromandel Peninsula. Motel has a basic utilitarian design with our unit (room 716) having a kitchen, living / dining room, balcony with nice ocean view and separate bedroom that met our needs. The motel's host, Jill, was very hospitable and gave us good recommendations for places to eat. The motel is within easy walking distance to restaurants and close to Whitianga shops.

As we were in the corner room we had a view to the lake. Clean and comfortable. Small kitchen so we were able to cook dinner and make breakfast so this kept our expenses down. Onsite parking. Wide stairs to the top level.

"Clean rooms close to town"

Kate, 4 Star Review Received 22nd March 2018 from Expedia

Nice clean room with good kitchenette and balcony with sea view. The room seemed to be quite hot each time we returned. We didn’t use the pool, but it looked clean and our daughter loved the playground. In a great location - right near the beach and around the corner from main street of town. Good value for money.

Immaculate hotel with ocean view rooms."

Suzanne, 5 Star Review Received 19th August 2017 from Expedia

After we were quickly checked in, we were walked to our room and provided with a fresh milk for our morning coffee. The room was fresh, light and tasty decorated, Every room was immaculate and the kitchen was stocked with all the dishes and utensils we needed. The balcony was big and the view was beautiful (ocean view). I loved the cute beach town feel. We ate dinner at a local Thai/Indian restaurant which was fantastic (menu provided in hotel info binder). My husband and I will definitely come back and stay at this hotel when we come back to this area.

"The Armitage is the place to stay in Tauranga."

John, 10/10 Review Received 25th September 2016 from Booking.com

The clean rooms, the restaurant and the staff are what we like the most. This was our third stay and it's now our 'go to' place in Tauranga. It's within walking distance of the central city and the shore, which means we can head off on foot and leave the car in the free car park if we want. It's an older hotel, so expect the decor to reflect that, but that doesn't detract from the excellent service. Looking forward to our next visit to Tauranga and the Armitage.

"Excellent Management and Team Response"

Wez6699, 5 Star Review Received 7th Febuary 2018 from Trip Advisor

We visited the hotel for two nights recently. During our second evening we had cause to raise concern about the quality of meals ordered via room service. The following morning we addressed the issue at reception. We were greeted by a lovely young woman on reception �Amanda� who was very friendly, pleasant and helpful. We then spoke with the General Manager Nicolas Caffardo whose response was friendly, supportive, professional and helpful. We were offered complimentary breakfasts and encountered Tiffany in the restaurant. Tiffany was helpful, friendly and lovely to deal with. Upon our return home we received not only a follow up email but personal phone call from Nicolas (GM) to ensure we were happy with the response from the team to our concern. We have used this hotel a number of times over the past 2-3 years and never had a problem. Our stays have always been very enjoyable. No one likes to complain and when in a situation like this the response from the establishment is a vital part of the whole experience. This team led by Nicolas were excellent in how they dealt with this situation promptly, in a positive, friendly and supportive manner. Well Done Hotel Armitage!

"Youngson Family Reunion"

Mikeve103, 5 Star Review Received 9th October 2017 from Trip Advisor

This last weekend - Friday and Saturday nights were the times we were in the hotel for this. Leading up to this event I was dealing with Sarah who could not have been more helpful right from the start, recommending how to do different things. On the two nights the allocated person to look after us was Vishal who could not have done enough for us along with his staff for the night. The food was great for both evenings. Yes the hotel is in need of a face lift but I hope not too much and I know this is in the pipe line with the new owners, but we all had fun along with all the children we had there and that is what it was all about, not the looks. Anyone looking for this type of venue well worth it. As I am a local I did not stay in the Hotel.

"Very comfortable"

MancLassie, 5 Star Review Received 5th April 2016 from Trip Advisor

Visiting friends from the UK a few weeks ago we stayed in Tauranga for a 2 night stopover during our holiday. They recommended the Armitage and we weren't disappointed! The hotel reminded me of a bygone era - but in a good way. Our room was spacious, clean and the bed was one of the most comfortable I stayed in during our entire 3 week holiday. The bathroom was huge with a shower over the spa bath. The staff were so friendly - nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely stay there again when I'm over there again.

"Tauranga Escape"

Brian, 5/5 Review Received 26th November 2017 from Expedia

Overnight escape visiting friends and family. Due to Hotels.com deal we were able to afford an upgrade to room with jetted bath and free breakfast the next morning. Staff were friendly and helpful and happy to help when we had any questions. Rooms were old but tidy and comfortable. We also had dinner in the Restaurant at the hotel. Standard Restaurant prices but well worth the money - very tasty. The free breakfast was the standard hotel buffet but again no complaints regarding the food. Overall our only complaint would have to be the toilet in the room. It is so close to the wall you struggle to sit down. Can't figure why they installed them that way.

"Grand spacious hotel close to everything"

Barbare, 5/5 Review Received 30th September 2017 from Expedia

This lovely hotel full of beautiful features was perfect. It was built quite some time ago and was obviously a classy place to stay then. We had a refurbished room which had it's own balcony that had a table and chairs to sit on in the morning. The rooms are HUGE (which was a surprise) And the bath was a spa bath. The Clipper Lounge for drinks is gorgeous with creased leather couches and cavernous armchairs and has a lead-light entrance way. In the foyer is a grand piano and one of the nights we were there a group of tee totaling rugby players were playing reggae respectfully on it. Brilliant! Had a marvelous stay and couldn't fault the cleanliness and customer service.

"Pleasantly Surprised"

Natalie, 5/5 Review Received 3rd June 2017 from Expedia

Kegan, 5/5 Review Received 16th April 2015 from Expedia

Amazingly beautiful grand hotel with a feel of that old charm you just don't get much nowadays, friendly staff and a lovely comfy bed. Value for money that you won't find anywhere else in Tauranga, I actually felt that it could've been a bit more per room, for what you got!

Hotel St George Long Term, Student and Backpackers

Florencia C, Buenos Aires, Argentina - 5/5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2011

"Perfect Place and Location - Very nice place and the location is perfect! good value indeed! We've been staying there for 9 months and we were very happy with the place. It's got a big shared kitchen and a nice TV room. The staff are very helpfull and nice."




SilvSL, 4/5 Reviewed 5th April 2019 on TripAdvisor.com

First thing that came to mind is that this place is a good value for its very central location.

Cafes, restaurants, shops, bars, supermarkets, parks are all within walking distance, very handy indeed. It is also quiet inside considering it's on a busy location, so don't worry about sleep disturbance due to outside noise.

I find the room is a bit tired and could use a make over. However, it is clean and tidy. The bathroom and kitchen are spotless, which is always a plus mark to me. Bed is comfortable too.

The front desk staff members are courteous, friendly and helpful.

Free wifi is available throughout the hotel.

I would recommend Mercure Central City Hotel and Apartments if you are travelling as a family with little one(s). First, it has a full size kitchen which is great to prepare meals for kids.

Second, the central location means you can walk everywhere without worrying about driving and parking, which could be another challenge when travelling with children. Hence, less stress.

Overall, we are happy with our stay at this hotel and will return next time we're in Wellington

"Groovy Hotel"

My partner and I stayed in a harbor view apartment recently on our visit to Wellington and Te Papa. Reception staff the cleaning staff and the adjoining hotel restaurant staff were so friendly and helpful. The view from our apartment was amazing, it was sunny and clean and with the windows open we felt on top of the world. Yes you can hear some noise but you are in the center of Wellington so it’s to be expected as you would in any other major city.
We would happily stay here again, not sure why we haven’t before!!

Quiet and central-one block to Cuba Mall, two blocks to Courtney Place. Easy to walk around. Went to Cin Cin Italian restaurant Cuba Mall, BurgerLiquor on Willis Street , and a roast meal at The Grand, Courtney Place. Breakfast Saturday at the Beach Caf� in Island Bay-best bacon yet. Watch out for cyclists, and no, they won't give way and can get aggressive. Wellington can turn on a howling wind and glorious calm (rare) sun filled days. Wonderful place because it is possible to walk everywhere,in the City.

“Great little place to stay in Wellington!”

T0nez, 8.3/10 Reviewed 2nd august 2018 on Bookings.com

The bed was a little soft for me but my husband liked it. Could hear noise from the street below most of the night but that's expected when you choose to stay in the city. Was dissappointed that there was no tv in the bedroom - but in saying that did not expect a room with a seperate living room space and a little kitchen nook.

Within walking distance of everywhere we wanted to visit. Very easy to check in, polite and friendly staff. Was a clean and tidy room, with views of the street below. Had a little balcony but you had to ring reception to get someone to come and open it up - which we didn't as we only stayed one night. Good shower pressure.

"Two night weekend away"

Phil W, 3/5 Reviewed 17th July 2018 on TripAdvisor

Beautiful lobby and a great location right in the middle of town.

The staff member who checked us in was amazing. Friendly, knowledgeable and informative about local area.

The room we have is spacious, well
Laid out but very basic.

Being winter it only has a wall heater that is hard wired in and in a timer. Little bit frustrating as obviously it turns off and you wake up cold.

The bed is extremely uncomfortable with bad roll together. Feels like a real cheap budget mattress.

The apartment Misses on little things like no TV in the bedroom, no AC ETC.

Location and staff would give this place a 5 rating but unfortunately the apartment itself drops it to a 3 rating.

The most important thing for me is a decent night’s sleep which unfortunately didn’t happen due to a stink bed.

"Recommend Staying"

ANavanua, 4/5 Reviewed 21st May 2018 on TripAdvisor.com

The good thing about the Mercure is that it didn’t pretend to be what it isn’t! It’s a mid range hotel that ticks all the boxes, clean and tidy, rooms are of average size but I didn’t feel boxed in.....I’m by no means a small bloke either! The guys at reception are friendly and efficient, and out of all the Accor branded hotels in town they are the most responsive to my emails. What also gives it an edge is it’s fairly close to the CBD. If you are like me and arrive latish then no need to pay for parking, use the available parking on the road outside the hotel, it’s well lit and safe and you won’t get a ticket as long as you are gone by about 8:30 in the morning!

Hotel was centrally located and the staff were super friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable and clean, however it's location on the first floor right next to the alleyway and a window facing the front that we could not see out of due to the entrance way, meant the room was quite dingy and didn't lend itself to wanting to spending much time in it. Not sure if the hotel was fully booked but if it wasn't, I think this room should be used as a last resort.

Stayed here for 1 night to meet up with friends in the city. This is a basic hotel in the CBD and was good value for the location and price paid for a short stay. Friendly & efficient staff. Room had no view, but was a good size, clean & bed comfortable. Bathroom looked recently refurbished and was excellent. Biggest hassle is finding a place to park the car for a Friday night overnight stay, but can't fault the hotel for that.

On arrival to the room, realize that there is no air-conditioning. Only heater is available. Perhaps Welly' s weather does not need aircon. But having it will improve comfort level. Hotel has no gym.

The Mercure Abel Tasman is centrally located and well within walking distance of the CBD and Victoria University of Wellington (albeit with a step walk to get to the Uni). The hotel is an older hotel but the rooms are large, renovated and well maintained. The staff are great and the downstairs restaurant makes a great coffee as well!

"Nice and Comfortable"

Reneexl, 4/5 Reviewed 9th April 2019 on TripAdvisor.com

My husband and I chose to stay here on a getaway for our anniversary. The room itself was comfortable and warm, the bed was huge and very comfortable. It was very well priced with breakfast included for the 2 nights. It is walking distance to Lambton Quay and Cuba street. We would stay again.

"A European-style hotel in Central Wellington"

bmlawrence, 4/5 Reviewed 30th March 2019 on TripAdvisor.com

The appeal of the Mercure Wellington Abel Tasman is its unique style: a small, boutique hotel or so it seems as it has few rooms over several floors. [I am usually on Level 7]. It retains the class of bygone eras.
The breakfasts and evening meals are both well-presented and value for money. The wait staff are attentive to one's needs and can be relied upon for guidance in selection of an evening meal..
The hotel also appeals to groups of International students and this gives the hotel are further unique quality. Reception is very much attuned to the needs of visitors from other areas of New Zealand, as well as other parts of the world.

Very nice hotel nicely decorated good location to do the tourist experience in Wellington on foot .Good was good in hotel.Only negative thing was the hotel car park which was underneath the hotel it was small and tight always full and difficult to get in and out We had to park in a car park next door belonging to Wellington council which was very expensive

"Great central city accommodation"

John L, 4/5 Reviewed 8th February 2019 on TripAdvisor.com

My wife and i recently spent four days in Wellington and stayed at the Abel Tasman. We were unsure of what the hotel would be like before we arrived but we were more than pleasantly surprised .Our room was on the 7th floor away from the noise of Willis Street.and it had everything we could reasonably expect. Lovely comfortable bed, clean and relatively spacious room and what my wife appreciated most of all, a comfortable armchair in the room. The staff were efficient, helpful and friendly.Thoroughly recommend and we will certainly be staying here on our next trip south.

"Nice New Year's break away"

AliceP2983, 5/5 Reviewed 8th January 2019 on TripAdvisor.com

We stayed at Mercure Abel Tasman last year and decided to stay again this year. Located conveniently near most CBD attractions, it makes it really easy to walk down to Cuba St or Courtney Place for a fine meal!The room was clean, the bathroom was clean and provided with fresh towels and shampoo/soap etc. There's a mini fridge and a microwave in the room along with some basic cutlery and bowls. There's not scrubber for the dishes though, so we had to use the dishcloth.The hotel is very nice, on new year's day they left a note asking if we wanted our room serviced as they're aiming to have their housekeeping staff finish by 12pm so they can spend time with their families - we ended up calling reception and letting them know that they can skip our room for that day.The double beds are nice and firm but the single bed was quite squishy - so generally comfortable depending on firmness you're used to!There's no aircon in the rooms so it can get a little stuffy, however you can open the window and an electric fan is provided in our rooms which helps a lot.Overall we had an excellent stay for the price - very affordable! Would love to stay again next time.

"Good location"

CherieS304, 4/5 Reviewed 9th January 2019 on TripAdvisor.com

we stayed here when we came to Wellington to see the Terracotta Warriors, so it was a good location we could walk to Te Papa. Parking was good. The room was clean, very small for 3 adults but the room was budget room and all we needed. Two things I didn't like, you had to full the jug from the bathroom, and the step around the shower was the same colour as the floor, and not toe friendly.
was very hot and we had to sleep with the fan on the windows open, and it was very noisy


A verified traveler, 5/5 Reviewed 18th December 2018 on Expedia.com

It's close enough to the center of town that you can walk to anything from here, but far enough so you're not bombarded with the late night buzz. The staff at the front desk was also amazing.


Rutendo, 8.8/10 Reviewed 9th December 2018 on Booking.com

Property was nice and clean at arrival, everything we needed was located in our room. Property was nice and close to everything which was good because didn’t really want to be using a car in the busy streets of Wellington.

"Centrally Based"

Caraveningcouple, 5/5 Reviewed 6th December 2018 on TripAdvisor.com

We visited Wellington for two nights, travelling down from Hamilton on the scenic railway and flying back there with Air New Zealand and had a lovely time staying at this hotel. We had two buffet breakfasts with plenty of choice to suit all tastes and the staff couldn’t be more helpful. One evening meal too which was excellent. The room was perfectly comfortable, clean and provided all we needed and we slept well too.

"Cheap and Cheer full"

Jocablebay, 4/5 Reviewed 9th November 2018 on TripAdvisor

Stayed here for a night over in Wellie to see the ballet. We wanted something clean, close to the theater and central but didn't need anything fancy. Perfect for our needs - reception staff super friendly and helpful, room spotless and great location for what we were doing.
Bedroom area was well maintained and bathroom clean and functional although could do with an update at some stage. Windows could do with new insulation foam to reduce noise and wind sound.
We didn't eat here as it was so close to lots of great eating spots (Neo for breakfast was stunning and Burger Liquor, both a quick stroll away, were excellent). Would definitely stay here again but maybe would choose elsewhere if it was a special occasion.

"Nice Stay"

SashaB, 4/5 Reviewed 8th November 2018 on TripAdvisor

Staff were very accommodating on my arrival. The rooms were relatively clean (miss on the view) for a mid range budget. The restaurant down stairs were good for a few drinks to meet new people. Location was a bit of a walk to other places, but easily to access.

"Our stay at the Mercure Wellington"

johmdH5041YQ, 4/5 Reviewed 14th November 2018 on TripAdvisor

We enjoyed the stay in this hotel. The room was a good size and in good condition. We had a good sleep for the two nights we stayed. We did not use the dining room this time as we did not have breakfast in our package.

"Night Staff were exceptional"

Escape15, 4/5 Reviewed 30th October 2018 on TripAdvisor

I arrived on a very late/early flight in from Sydney and didn't arrive at the hotel until after 1am, that staff were exceptional - they processed my check in quickly and were also kind enough to let me know that if there was anything I needed that they would be on reception all night and to not hesitate to let them know. The perfect amount of speed, accuracy and care.

"New Zealand May Break"

FJB56, 4/5 Reviewed 25th September 2018 on TripAdvisor.com

Having read some of the reviews of the Mercure Abel Tasman I was a little sceptical. We arrived off the train from Auckland around 1930hrs and check in was quick but not as friendly as expected from an Accor hotel. When we got to our room it was not what I had booked. The room we were suppose to have had was crossed out on the checkin form and were given the other room. As we were staying for 6 nights I checked with the manager the next morning and all was sorted with a minimum of fuss. Thank you Mercure. The Mercure Abel Tasman is an older hotel and does not have air con but the room we had was spacious and very clean. Be prepared for traffic noise if you have the window open. The hotel is centrally located and a short walk from restaurants, theatres, shopping and the museum. A couple of doors down from the hotel is a dining area with 15-20 food stalls. We ate here regularly and the food was delicious. We had dinner one night at the hotel and it was very nice. The main came with a drink included in the price. Great value. Breakfast was a simple but enjoyable buffet. You could also order al a carte. The hotel has very good coin operated washing and drying machines. Great value for money hotel.

"one night stay"

alexfanning001, 4/5 Star Review Received 8th August 2018 from TripAdvisor

Very helpful staff and the room was clean. For $80 it was well worth it. Normal price is around $120, but still worth that much. They allowed me to check in early at 12:00PM which was also appreciated. Would stay again.

"Well located, clean and tidy"

LG, 4/5 Star Review Received 31st August 2018 from TripAdvisor

Stayed here for two nights. Conveniently located near the university, our main destination. Handy to Cuba St, couple of Cafes and a market place food court on the same street. Stayed in a twin room - nice to have one large bed (king, not queen as expected) and a single - beds were comfy. The decor and building is a bit dated but clean and tidy. Check in was swift and friendly. The buffet breakfast in the ground floor restaurant was nice but nothing stood out particularly. One night was spent in a street facing room on the 3rd floor - a bit noisy with voices from the street. The second night was another booking, this time facing the rear on the 4th floor so no view but quieter overnight. Would happily stay here again for the location and a reasonably priced room but not if you are looking for something luxurious or modern.

"Very central and comfortable"

Emma, 8/10 Reviewed 10th August 2018 on Bookings.com

Very centrally located, comfortable hotel. Only issue worth noting was the noise at night time, but it is right in the middle of the city! And they provide ear plugs. The bar was lovely and cosy too. Would recommend to couples or groups of friends.

Lara, 8.8/10 Reviewed 10th June 2018 on Bookings.com

Only suggestions would be to have a better guide to the services that the hotel offers and not just a one pager flyer. I had trouble getting the Sky TV and then when i did most of the free channels that come with a Sky package were not available, only the discovery, 1 movie channel (not a good one either) 3 odd sports channels (bit of an overkill on the sports side) and 2 news channels. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and both the front line staff and housekeeping were all very friendly and welcoming. I enjoyed my stay and even though i provided a couple of suggestions that would improve my overall experience in the future in the next section, I would definitely stay again at the Abel Tasman Mecure - Wellington.

"Location, Comfort, Value"

Chocfisshh, 5/5 Reviewed 17th June 2018 on Tri Advisor.com

Stayed 3 nights for Work in the Capital - the Hotel was all I needed.
This is nicely positioned in Willis St but away from the busy part of Willis meant CBD was 5mins walk from the hotel. It is also less than 5mins walk from Cuba St and a few more minutes to Courtney Place, Te Papa and the Waterfront. Right next door is a Food Hall that offers varieties of menus and very affordable eating.
The cost of staying here is more than reasonable. Book direct with the hotel or use your Accor Loyalty membership to get the best deals.
The room is comfortable and the bed gave me the best travel sleep in a long while.
Staff and Service complimented the hotel nicely.
I would stay here again. It meets all my travel needs when in Wellington for business or pleasure.

"Convenient, Excellent Service - Will Return"

Familyof4_Boys2014, 4/5 Review Received 27th March 2018 from Trip Advisor

Stayed at the Abel Tasman for 7 nights. The hotel is located near shopping at Lambton Quay, restaurants on Cuba Street and easy access to the main highway system. 169 Bistro serves a good breakfast buffet with hot food, meat, fruit and anything you need. Service at the hotel and the Bistro were excellent, very pleasant and willing to offer / provide any information required from shopping to dinner.
The rooms were simple but as required. WiFi was consistent and dependable. Television offered only 6 channels or so. Not an expensive hotel so there were a few noticeable tired parts of the room - some spots on the roof & floor and wall-paper seams lifting in a few places. Nothing to fret about as the pro outweighed the cons.
Given the need or opportunity I will use the Abel Tasman again.
