Over half of The Dwellington is dedicated to common areas, including the chef’s style kitchen, the impressive 5 meter long Redwood dining table that overlooks the tennis courts, a state-of-the-art cinema room with Netflix and Sky Sports, a games room, ample outdoor spaces and much more.We offer our guests free unlimited WiFi and a scrumptious free breakfast with freshly roasted ‘Havana’ coffee and free-range eggs everyday during their stay. Fresh towels are available on demand anytime you like.
We have a variety of rooms which include spacious private double’s, twins, triples, a family room, 4-bed dorms, a female dorm room and a generous 8-bed dorm. Reception is open everyday between 6:30am – 9pm but we can arrange to welcome you if you are arriving later.
The friendly staff can help with booking a variety of local activities and onward journeys including the Interislander and Bluebridge ferries to Picton.

Location Info

The Dwellington is located in the historic neighbourhood of Thorndon, Wellington’s oldest. Within a few minutes walk from the train and main bus station, The Dwellington is nestled between the third oldest tennis club in the world and the US and Chinese Embassies. Wellington’s biggest supermarket, New World, is across the road and the New Zealand parliament (Beehive) is a stone’s throw away. A pleasant 15-minute walk through Lambton Quay (Wellington’s CBD) will get you to the famous Cable Car where you could ride to the top of the botanical gardens and see city from up high.
