Location & contact
Arrived early but was ok to check in. Reception friendly, rooms good size, very comfortable beds, spotless bathrooms with good quality toiletries. Towelling robes and slippers provided . Breakfast was buffer style with eggs cooked to order I’d requested. Plenty of choice with cooked food replenished quickly. Free “Chocolate Hour” happens daily. On the day we chose to sample we hade choices of chocolates fruit and marshmallows for dipping. We had originally planned to stay at another hotel in Wellington and had booked early due to “WOW” being in town but on checking the prices a couple of weeks before staying found we could save over $700 by switching the booking to the Movenpick which also has a higher rating. There is an indoor pool available which looked ok but did not have time to use it. Would definitely stay here again.
Do not disturb sign was on the door. Person didn't even knock to see if me and my partner were the room, still came in. 20 minutes or so later we receive an apology on how they were going to clean the room and how they couldn't because of the do not disturb sign. Next time knock or just come back later if the do not disturb sign is on. ESPECIALLY FOR A 5 STAR HOTEL!!!!
Me and my partner were enjoying our stay so much so on the day we were due to go home we booked an extra night. We had the dnd sign on the door but they ignored it and came in anyway. It was quite traumatic for me. They didn’t come back in luckily and slid a note under the door saying they “respected our privacy with the dnd sign on the door” when they actually came in without knocking or making themselves known.
The hotel is reached via one of two very steep hills. There is a lift from the restaurant that goes halfway down the hill to Willis Street but only if you have already checked in. We booked a Deluxe Room (615) which is around 30 dollars more than a Superior Room and promised a high floor and "stunning views". Our room was near the entrance and one floor above Reception. The view was of houses. I asked Reception if our room was indeed Deluxe and this was confirmed. Moral of the story is save your money and book a Superior Room
We really liked the Movenpick: tucked into a lush green hillside, the hotel exudes an old world charm matched with modern-day comforts. The room was quite small but well-appointed and very quiet. The service was excellent: friendly & efficient at all turns. Full breakfast buffet was lovely with a stunning view over the city. Unfortunately, we would not choose to return because of one room issue: the majority of lights in the room, including bedside lights and bathroom lights, are controlled by one master switch, an overhead light that lights up the whole room. Turn this overhead off and you cannot turn on those bedside lights nor the bathroom lights. Hence - no reading in bed without the whole room lit up; if you need to use the bathroom in the middle of the night, you either trip around in the dark or wake up your sleeping partner with the light. When your partner accidentally turns the overhead off while you're in the shower? Welcome to Sensory Deprivation Shower time. It is such a shame, because but for this one issue we quite enjoyed our brief stay - but, if it had been a longer stay, I would have moved hotels. Lastly, a note: the hillside down to the main street of restaurants, shops and central downtown is VERY steep. We enjoyed the trek to & from, for the most part, but we both had to stop for breath on the way 'home.' If you do choose the Movenpick, make sure to pack sturdy walking shoes!
