The Wellesley Boutique Hotel’s architectural history is just as remarkable as its chic, contemporary rooms. The neo-Georgian building in which the hotel resides was designed by architect Gary Young, and won several awards upon its completion in 1929. What was once the site of a gentlemen’s club is now a local heritage institution and luxurious hotel experience. The Wellesley Boutique Hotel consists of four elegant Deluxe Rooms, four ornate Executive Suites, four high-ceiling Classic Rooms, and a stylish Single Room.

A trip to one of Wellington’s most popular beachside suburbs will bring you to the chic, independently-owned Ohtel. This 10-bedroom boutique hotel was carefully composed and conceived by Allan Blundel, who had more than 20 years of architectural experience under his belt before pursuing the hospitality industry. Ohtel features two deluxe rooms, two suites, three superior rooms, a junior suite, and two studio rooms. Contemporary artworks and a mid-century inspired interior design were chosen to contrast with the premise’s modern apartment aesthetics.
