Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

The stylish QT Wellington offers designer boutique accommodation in the heart of Wellington, and its distinctive interiors are adorned with a carefully-curated selection of art.

Rooms at QT Wellington

The unique rooms offer a private sanctuary and a creative hideaway in the middle of the city. They come with plush beds, large windows and colourful touches including wall murals and bright cushions, with decadent gold accents, alongside well-stocked mini-bars and sleek white bathrooms. The studios have gallery kitchens and large bathtubs.

Enjoy views over the urban hills or the harbour - and some rooms have private balconies where you can relax and look out over Wellington and beyond.

Food & Drink

The lavish and highly-acclaimed Hippopotamus restaurant is a showcase of French flamboyance. This is a haven of gourmet dining and fine wine, and for dinner, feast on a gourmet menu of dishes such as beef fillet and fresh salmon. Browse the list of superbly-blended cocktails for your choice of after-dinner sundowner in the bar.


Have a workout in the gym, enjoy an evening dip in the pool or visit the spa for some pampering.

Activities at QT Wellington

Once you’ve finished gawping at all the artwork lining this hotel’s corridors and communal areas, take a tour of the fabulous Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, which is just round the corner, scale nearby Mount Victoria for pretty harbour views, ride the iconic cable car to Carter Observatory, enjoy theatres, galleries and the shopping of the vibrant Courtenay Quarter, or taste your way around the city sampling coffee houses and gourmet eateries – some of our favourites are dotted along the waterfront on the way to Oriental Bay Beach.
