As the city is only a couple of kilometers wide, walking can get you just about anywhere. The wine growing valleys of Wairarapa and Marlborough are also easily accessible from the hotel. Wellington is also excellent for mountain biking, sailing, walking, as well as helicopter tours. After an adventurous day spent exploring the city, a trip to the Bodyhaven Spa is a must to rejuvenate for the next day. James Cook Grand Chancellor Hotel is a well-priced hotel in an excellent location in Wellington.

Won't go back

The heating in the room, the room service lady we met, and kind of the location
It was quite disappointing unfortunately. The room was more run down than advertised, and there was no caution of the construction that the hotel was under when we stayed there. We were woken in the mornings by construction noises like banging and drilling directly below us. We were only staying for two nights but if we had stayed longer we would have requested another room or gone to another hotel.
