Found in the center of Wellington’s business and retail district, James Cook Grand Chancellor Hotel is ideally located for both the business traveler and visiting tourist. 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.
Sojourn Café will be open from 07:00 AM to 03:00 PM on Mondays to Fridays only.
