2-8 Maginnity Street , Wellington , , New Zealand View hotel location on the map
Nestled in the heart of Wellington's CBD and just a stroll away from shopping, major sports venues and a host of other attractions is a very special boutique hotel. One of the city's most charming heritage buildings has been transformed into a hotel with an ambiance which envelopes you the moment you enter its doors.
The Wellesley Boutique Hotel is named after Arthur Wellesley, better known as the Duke of Wellington, the victor of Waterloo. The Duke was a sponsor of the New Zealand Company, which in turn recognised his support by naming Wellington, one of the principal towns of the new colony, after him. In 1891 a group of Wellington businessmen decided to establish a gentlemen's club, they chose the name Wellesley because of its obvious connections with the city of Wellington.
The building that today houses the Wellesley Boutique Hotel was designed by architect Gray Young and completed in 1929. It won an Institute of Architects Gold Medal and is considered one of the finest examples of neo-Georgian architecture in Wellington. The building has been designated a grade 1 Heritage Building by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust. In 1997 the building was meticulously restored as a hotel.
The present owners of the hotel are proud of the building's heritage status and are committed to the preservation of its integrity.
Comfort, convenience and history. It's all here.
