Where to stay

As an established, modern capital city, Wellington offers accommodations of numerous shapes and sizes. Get a harbor view at a luxury hotel by the waterfront, or enjoy simple rental rooms at one of the many backpacker hostels. Cheaper accommodation lies outside the downtown area, with motels, campsites, and RV parks providing options for those on smaller budgets, and travelers wanting to get out of town and into the rolling, green hills. Wellington benefits from a wide range of transport and a very efficient infrastructure, so you'll have access to attractions no matter where you stay.
