Oaks Hotels motors to Wellington in former historic Ford building

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.”
