A SPECIAL PLACE IN HISTORY The Wellesley Boutique Hotel is named after Arthur Wellesley; better known as the Duke of Wellington, the Victor of Waterloo. The Duke was a sponsor of the New Zealand Company, which in turn recognised his support by naming Wellington, one of the principal towns of the new colony, after him. In 1891 when a group of Wellington businessmen decided to establish a gentlemen’s club, they chose the name Wellesley for its historical connections with the city. ARCHITECTURAL BEAUTY The building that today houses the Wellesley Boutique Hotel in central Wellington was designed by architect Gray Young and completed in 1929. It won an Institute of Architects Gold Medal and is considered one of the finest examples of neo-Georgian architecture in Wellington. The building has been designated a Grade 1 Heritage Building by the New Zealand Historic Places Trust. In 1997 the building was restored as an elegant hotel, and the present owners of the hotel are proud of the building’s heritage status and are committed to the preservation of its integrity and character. THE WELLESLEY EXPERIENCE Experience the history of the Wellesley Boutique Hotel for yourself. Our central Wellington location is ideal for exploring the dining, shopping, culture and sights that that New Zealand’s capital has to offer. We are also the perfect function venue for your next gathering, conference, or as a wedding reception venue for an unforgettable day. Contact us for information.
