Sofitel Wellington

'Elegant, Chic and Central'

Ideally positioned within the Central Business District of Wellington, Sofitel Wellington overlooks the lush hillsides and diverse flora and fauna of the Botanical Gardens. 129 lavish rooms and suites are beautifully appointed with vintage gold and bronze tones, as well as modern amenities to ensure a comfortable city stay. Within the hotel itself, you’ll find an elegant French-inspired restaurant, stylish bar, and Sofitel’s signature spa and fitness centre, while the main city attractions are just a short walk away.

In Our Opinion

‘The iconic Wellington Cable Car, established for over 100 years, is just a 10 minute walk away – steel yourself and view the city at new heights!’
