Each room is individually furnished with the bathrooms as the focal point; large expanses of glass reveal luxurious two-person baths, oversized showers, and the finest natural toiletries.

Wellington, named by Lonely Planet as number 4 of 2011's Top Ten Places to Visit, has gone through a renaissance in recent years. Jason Dundas checked out a designer hotel (called 'Ohtel') by the sea and a nearby bar for a taste of this NZ beauty. 

I have also enjoyed a stay at ohtel, a friendly 10-room boutique hotel on Oriental Parade with a serious commitment to designer chic.

"One of Wellington's strengths is its willingness to you what's going on whever you go. Artworks are labelled, sights are sign posted and everything is explained"

Nightlife-wise, Alan of Ohtel is well hooked in. I particularly enjoyed our trip to Motel, an excellent bar with young, friendly staff in military regalia. Ohtel is a real find and first of its kind in little old New Zealand—well worth a detour south of the equator!
Christian Houge
Your front of house staff, the rooms and the overall complete package that Ohtel offers is world class. I look forward to returning as well as recommending Ohtel to my local and international friends and business partners as this is the place to stay when in Wellington.
