Where to stay in Wellington

When considering where to stay in Wellington, the options roll on and on. However, there are a few major areas that remain tourist favourites for good reasons. For example, staying in Cuba Street makes sense if you want to be right in the heart of Wellington’s culture scene from daybreak to dusk. Meanwhile, Mount Cook provides a more laidback accommodation spot if you prefer peace and quiet. Of course, you can’t look past Oriental Bay if you’re hoping to hit the beach during your Wellington getaway, and Lambton Quay is a popular all-round area.

  • Lambton Quay

    As the heart of Wellington's CBD, Lambton Quay is the perfect place to stay if retail therapy is a big part of your holiday itinerary. This area is a shopping paradise. Even if you're not desperate to shop, this popular suburb also offers close proximity to many attractions and hotels of every stripe, from five-star hotels to simple motel accommodation.

  • Cuba Street and Courtenay Place

    This area is not only central but also home to some of the fanciest hotels in the city. Cuba Street is one of the most desirable places to stay in Wellington due to its popularity as a social precinct and its proximity to local tourist attractions. There will be quirky shops and cafes practically on your doorstep, and you'll often pass local buskers on the way back to your hotel.

  • Mount Cook

    An inner-city suburb full of historic landmarks and old-world-style hotels and accommodation, Mount Cook is perfect if you prefer to be out of the CBD a little way but still want to remain reasonably close to the many attractions nearby. It's also a wonderful place to base yourself if you're looking to head into the hills.

  • Oriental Bay

    Beach lovers need only apply. The perfect place to stay in Wellington if you like throwing open the doors of your hotel room in the morning and heading straight down to the seaside, Oriental Bay is filled with hotels to suit any budget. It's still quite central despite being to the city's north, so staying in Oriental Bay also keeps you close to most city attractions.
