Average time to visit

The climate in New Zealand is incredibly pleasant, with warm and balmy summers and cold crisp winter months with wonderful clear, blue skies. The warmer high-season months of November to April are perfect for outdoor exploration. The colder months of June to August are the best time to ski.

Both North and South Islands are drier on the east coast, rather than on the west, where mountain ranges act as a trap for the moisture-rich winds from the Tasman Sea. It is also worth remembering that it is usually a few degrees cooler on the South Island than the North Island and as New Zealand has a maritime climate, the weather can change rapidly.

This quirky design-led hotel is a new addition to Wellington’s trendy waterfront district and offers a fun, eccentric stay in the capital, within walking distance to shops, restaurants and numerous attractions.

Situated by the harbourside, this design-led hotel is an eccentric addition to Wellington’s creative heart. The walls are adorned with eclectic artworks while idiosyncratic touches create a fun, hip property that doesn’t take itself too seriously.

Furnished with modern art and the designs of local artists, the 179 rooms and apartments are an explosion of colour, creativity and individual design; this is certainly a place to find your inner Banksy and embrace the vibrant joie de vivre of modern art. Nespresso coffee machines, complimentary wifi and Bose sound systems bring the modern technology to complement the art, while QT Gel beds, crisp white linens and vibrant accents create a welcoming retreat after a day exploring New Zealand’s capital. While the streets around the hotel are lined with cafes, restaurants and bars, the hotel boasts three dining options of its own, with the atmospheric surrounds of the Lobby Lounge, the French-inspired Hippopotamus restaurant and the Asian menu and cutting edge mixologists of Hot Sauce taking you from morning coffee to evening cocktail.

The 17-metre indoor pool is a welcoming addition to a city hotel, while the fitness centre, spa and sauna provide a chance to unwind when not exploring the sights of the city. QT’s harbourside location in Te Aro offers access to the bars, cafes, restaurants and boutiques of this trendy neighbourhood. The Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa is opposite, while the sands of Oriental Bay Beach are less than five-minutes walk. You could explore the art collection of the hotel before heading out into Wellington’s bustling streets, wandering from vintage record store to world-class restaurant, tranquil park to speakeasy-style bar before ending up back at the hotel for exquisite French fine dining at Hippopotamus.
