Oaks Wellington Hotel has officially opened its doors in the heart of Wellington’s entertainment precinct, Courtenay Place.
Formerly the Ford vehicle assembly plant, the site has since undergone a multi-million dollar transformation into a 226-key, nine storey hotel. Oaks Wellington Hotel offers 30 different room configurations.
Helmed by executive chef, Kit Foe, the on-site Oak & Vine restaurant offers Kiwi-inspired cuisine with a Mediterranean influence.
The menu features flatbreads served with thyme and beetroot hummus, locally sourced Te Kouma Bay Pacific oysters, twelve-hour slow cooked lamb shoulder served with green beans and chat potatoes, and the signature Oak & Vine charcuterie board complete with artesian meat and Pâté.
The hotel also offers executive meeting rooms and function spaces, as well as a business hub located in the foyer with high-speed internet.
“We are thrilled to see Oaks Wellington Hotel come to fruition,” said Jamie Donnell, general manager at Oaks Wellington Hotel. “Our property brings a fresh flavour to the current offerings in the booming city of Wellington, with a powerful mix of culture, rich history, delectable cuisines, and world-class coffee and craft beers.”
