The room was okay, but in need of an overhaul. The curtains had tears in them, the decor is tired and we only had 3 channels to choose from on the TV. Some woodwork in the corridors needs attention and the whole building needs a refurb. Our friends stayed at your hotel the same night, and they had a really bad experience with some kids in rooms to the left and to the right of their room. The kids were going between rooms, slamming doors and making a lot of noise. When our friends complained the manager said there was nothing he could do about it. This is unacceptable and had that been me I would have left the hotel and demanded a full refund.

Great location and modest price

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

TheoProf Business - 02/08/2020 TripAdvisor review

This is an older property. The rooms are fine/ good. The dinner (part of an organized event) was very good with old fashioned and generous portions. Overall is definitely choose this hotel for its value for money. Located on the corner of Willis Street and Dixon, it is 10 minutes to most things. The trade off of being slightly away from the waterfront and Lambton Quay is the modest price.

Central Location in Wellington is Convenient

stgeorgesonthebend Business - 27/07/2020 TripAdvisor review

Not sure if the hotel is going through a refurbishment program (1 elevator was OOO) but in the case of my room, it certainly needs work. The bathroom fittings were loose and the bathroom felt very basic - not Mercure standard. The TV only had 3 channels on it (TV1,2 & 3) and even there, the aspect ratio was out and half the picture was missing. On a plus, the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. I have stayed here many times (did not get my room up-grade) - the bar was emty and uninviting so did not use my drinks voucher either. Will be back but hopefully will see improvements.

Wellington Stop Over

Lob6 Business - 15/06/2020 TripAdvisor review

Hotel easily located and within walking distance to all points of interest in Wellington city Room tired decor and could do with a revamp Spotlessly clean with all the amenities I required for a 1 night stop over Lovely breakfast in the morning Had to pay extra for car parking in Wilson’s which was next door Thank You Micheal at check in for your expertise

Short Business Stay

WXPDHE Business - 02/03/2020 TripAdvisor review

The hotel is obviously undergoing work which is always an unpleasant surprise when you check in. Hopefully the work on the lifts will result in them running in a reliable manner because during my stay one was out of commission and other broke down. It seemed like this was only just a Mercure standard property very old and basic fitout from the TV to the bathroom not at all current when compared with other Mercure properties in the region.

Hi WXPDHE, Thank you for your feedback and apologies about the lifts. They are being replaced as part of the modernisation of the building. Regards Jeff

Wouldn't have stayed at the Mercure as not up to our standard

cwish2020 Couples - 06/01/2020 TripAdvisor review

When travelling for a rare holiday my intention was to spoil ourslves. We thought the Mercure would live up to the same standard as the Pullman or Novotel hotels, but we were disappointed. The hotel was old. Although refurbished, it was mutton dressed up as lamb. It was functional but not overly enjoyable. I think the fridge we had on our room was over thrity years old. The shelves were all broken. No place to get ice. and quite unuseable. Very disappointing.

Hi CWish2020, Really appreciate the feedback and I will speak to the staff about out shortcomings. Apologies and please contact directly if you wish to stay again! Regards Jeff

Nigel G Family - 29/12/2019 TripAdvisor review

I talked my wife into staying here rather than our normal Grand Mercure on the Terrace. What a terrible decision!! Through no fault of the hotel it was noisey 24/7 due to waste water issues. Then there was poor quality food in the restaurant both at dinner and breakfast- such a disappointment. Then on the second day the restaurant area was closed - no warning at the time of booking or on arrival. What's the point of being an ACCOR member? Leaving the hotel was even a problem. We won't be returning to the Able Tasman.

Hi Nigel, Thanks so much for the feedback and I apologise for any shortcomings. I have recently started at the hotel and I can assure you that there will be plenty of future improvements. Regards Jeff

The property needs a revamp

101Jennifer Business - 07/12/2019 TripAdvisor review

Restaurant staff were amazing!! Receptionist was unwelcoming. Assumed we were among a tour group and jumped to serve customers behind us in a queue. She then made a "brush off " comment, saying that she didn't see us there waiting!! One of the two elevators was out of service. Room was old and cupboards and draws did not close properly. Shower pressure was poor.

Hi Jennifer, Thank you for your feedback and apologies that you didn't feel welcomed. I will certainly discuss with our team. Regards Jeff

Another nice stay

Chris I Business - 20/10/2019 TripAdvisor review

Staff were very helpful especially as I had mucked up my booking and needed an extra night. The bent over backwards to get something sorted which they did. I often chose to say here as it isi central and usually best priced in comparison to the other Accor hotels in Wellington. The only hiccup this time was a terrible smell which permeated the floors and lifts. When I asked about it they said they had the grease traps cleaned and that the company doing it had not done it properly. They had them back in and it went the next day. My only suggestion would be to inform all those staying of what was happening so that people weren't left thinking there was a terrible problem.

Hi Chris, Thank you for your constructive feedback and I will pass onto the relevant departments. We hope to see you on your next visit to Wellington.. Regards Jeff Hermes GM of Prime Hotels

Disappointed

notathome5 Couples - 17/10/2019 TripAdvisor review

Had booked 2 nights here for the end of our trip to the North Island. When I became ill and unable to enjoy touring on our 3rd last day we decided to stay an extra day to recover. But at a huge mark up in price. Not happy!!

Dear Notathome5, Thank you for the feedback and we appreciate your feedback. Similar to airline hotel pricing is dynamic and changes due to demand. Regards Jeff Hermes GM of Prime Hotels.

Murray M Friends getaway - 21/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

Awesome - great service, food, reception - a wonderful stay - we were totally at the mercy of Wellington service persons and they were awesome. I believe they knew we had been to the Beer festival. The hotel is in a wonderful location and has a great kitchen and good beer on tap. We were totally happy :)

Thank you for your lovely feedback. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay. We hope to see you again soon. Kind Regards Jody Dickinson General Manager

Good services but big issues with sound from neighbours

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

kemclenn Solo travel - 13/08/2019 TripAdvisor review

Lovely attentive staff My biggest issue was in room 602 and there was what looked like an old interconnecting door just replaced with a panel. When the people in the next room talked it was like they were in the room! I could hear every word. Also note I’m a very heavy sleeper so a bit of noise doesn’t usually bother me. Couldn’t risk recommending due to this issue alone.

Thank you for providing helpful feedback. I am delighted to hear you found the staff lovely and attentive. I sincerely apologise your were disturbed by people in the next room. Your feedback is very much appreciated. Kind Regards Jody Dickinson General Manager

Great stay

Above average staff from initial contact to check out. Couldn't do enough to help. Nothing was a bother. Hotel room was really clean. Handy having a restaurant on site. Restaurant food was really good and staff fabulous.Very close to shopping/ theatres etc.

The team are thrilled to hear you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for sharing your lovely experience. We hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back again soon. Kind Regards Jody Dickinson General Manager

Alan_Taylor14 Solo travel - 17/04/2019 TripAdvisor review

Everything was excellent as it always is. A great bed, great room, great service. No problem sleeping at all even though it was a Saturday Night. Would happily come back and stay again. In fact I am returning in May.

Perfect Central Wellington Hotel

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

panhellenism Business - 15/04/2019 TripAdvisor review

The Mercure Abel Tasman is centrally located and well within walking distance of the CBD and Victoria University of Wellington (albeit with a step walk to get to the Uni). The hotel is an older hotel but the rooms are large, renovated and well maintained. The staff are great and the downstairs restaurant makes a great coffee as well!

A European-style hotel in Central Wellington

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

bmlawrence Solo travel - 22/03/2019 TripAdvisor review

The appeal of the Mercure Wellington Abel Tasman is its unique style: a small, boutique hotel or so it seems as it has few rooms over several floors. [I am usually on Level 7]. It retains the class of bygone eras. The breakfasts and evening meals are both well-presented and value for money. The wait staff are attentive to one's needs and can be relied upon for guidance in selection of an evening meal.. The hotel also appeals to groups of International students and this gives the hotel are further unique quality. Reception is very much attuned to the needs of visitors from other areas of New Zealand, as well as other parts of the world.

More attention to customer comfort needed

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

sharleen b Solo travel - 13/03/2019 TripAdvisor review

Have stayed before but this time not as well looked after as previously. First room taken to had someone obviously staying in it, Second had an appalling smell like strong mould or chemicals . I'd asked for a quiet room but this one was street frontage so couldn't keep windows open due to noise. Aircon on full helped but room should not have been let that night.$1 Breakfast as part of package was very average but it was not stated I then couldn't use my points towards cost of hotel. I'd rather have used the points.

Thank you for your feedback. I am looking into your feedback. Your feedback is valued and appreciated and helps make a difference.

Not up to expectations

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

K8886QBanthonyr Couples - 24/02/2019 TripAdvisor review

It was quite a warm day when we arrived. The building was not air-conditioned and the solitary pedestal fan in the room did not handle the afternoon sun. The curtains were open so the fan never really had a chance. The Abel Tasman is an older hotel than all Mercure hotels I have stayed in previously so perhaps I have been spoiled.

Nice New Year's break away

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

AliceP2983 Friends getaway - 05/01/2019 TripAdvisor review

We stayed at Mercure Abel Tasman last year and decided to stay again this year. Located conveniently near most CBD attractions, it makes it really easy to walk down to Cuba St or Courtney Place for a fine meal!The room was clean, the bathroom was clean and provided with fresh towels and shampoo/soap etc. There's a mini fridge and a microwave in the room along with some basic cutlery and bowls. There's not scrubber for the dishes though, so we had to use the dishcloth.The hotel is very nice, on new year's day they left a note asking if we wanted our room serviced as they're aiming to have their housekeeping staff finish by 12pm so they can spend time with their families - we ended up calling reception and letting them know that they can skip our room for that day.The double beds are nice and firm but the single bed was quite squishy - so generally comfortable depending on firmness you're used to!There's no aircon in the rooms so it can get a little stuffy, however you can open the window and an electric fan is provided in our rooms which helps a lot.Overall we had an excellent stay for the price - very affordable! Would love to stay again next time.

Thank you for sharing your experience. It is great to hear you enjoyed your break away. The team are delighted to hear that you will stay with us again next time you are in Wellington. Your feedback is appreciated. Kind Regards Jody Dickinson General Manager

The Best Spot in Wellington

TripAdvisor rating 3.5/5

PhilipM1610 Couples - 18/12/2018 TripAdvisor review

If your are spending time visiting spots like Te Papa, there's no where better than the Abel Tasman for your base. Excellent service and great rooms. We went to the Terracotta Warriors exhibition, and the Hotel was ideal for the walk across town. Plus there was the shopping on the way.

Thank you for sharing your lovely feedback.. The team are delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay. We pleased that you got to experience the Terracotta Warriors exhibition. We hope we have the opportunity to welcome you back again in the future. Kind Regards Jody Dickinson General Manager
