Hotel description
Found in the center of Wellington’s business and retail district, James Cook Grand Chancellor Hotel is ideally located...see more 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.

A solid choice

Location, room size,quietness
I stay here often and I'm always happy with the hotel. It's getting a bit shabby and dated, though. But I keep returning - the location is brilliant, the rooms are a good size and it's quiet.

Rooms, staff and location
Easy access to the city and close to the harbour. Large room and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay. Charges for car parking are the only complaint.

Did not appreciate paying daily rate for parking in the hotel - should be free when you are a guest

Good Wellington Hotel

room size, view, location
We had an upgraded room for 3 nights which was very good. The dining room is very large and with a good view. The buffet was good. The only problem was a large family with very noisy shouting children which disrupted the atmosphere of the dining room. I am sure this is a random event which not the Hotel's fault. The desk staff were helpful and I would stay there again if in Wellington
