PARK HO­TEL OVERNIGHT RATE FROM $138 (STAN­DARD ROBIN ROOM)

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - Escape - - WHAT’S YOUR BUDGET WELLINGTON - PARKHOTEL.NZ

Opened in 2016, the Park Ho­tel puts a new spin on ur­ban na­ture with views over Mid­land Park, tim­ber-clad walls, and each of the rooms named af­ter a New Zea­land bird – from the smaller Robin to the ex­clu­sive Takahe. Head out­side to look for real-life equiv­a­lents in the Welling­ton Botanic Gar­den, just 1km from the front door. You’re only a two-minute walk from Lambton Cen­tral ca­ble car sta­tion and an eight-minute walk from the har­bourfront, but have a chat to re­cep­tion staff to suss out lesser-known lo­cal se­crets.

You’ll feel the Mad Men vibes din­ing in the ho­tel’s Ster­ling Wood­fire Eatery & Bar, with a sea­sonal menu de­signed around a wood-fired oven. If you’d pre­fer to re­treat to your cosy room, 24-hour room service is also avail­able.
