The West Plaza is at the economy end for hotels and Wellington and seems good value. The rooms are basic (and perhaps a little tired). The location is great - walking distance to a large number of cafes and restaurants. Rooms at the roadside end of the hotel (and above the bar) can be a little noisy but overall it... More

Hotel is whithin walking distance to event venues and shops, bars, restaurants etc which makes it ideal. Staff are helpful and friendly.The decor is dated and attention to cleanliness would definately improve the rooms as the walls, drapes etc look tired and dirty, not the most appealing thing to see.

This hotel is ideally located within walking distance of everything. Right at the base of Cuba street where there are trendy shops, great restaurants and plenty of cafes. A really short walk to the harbour and museums. The rooms were basic but had enough rooms and were clean. The hotel restaurant seemed good however we didn't eat there.

I’ve stayed at the West Plaza regularly since 1996. Why, because the rooms are comfortable a decent size with windows that actually open for fresh air, its centrally located without being noisy, the reasonably priced restaurant its totally reliable (not one bad meal in 17 years) (many feature on my blog), the bar is comfortable with great bar-snacks but most...

The hotel lobby looks very nice but step away from that and further into the hotel and it look dated. The room was clean and tidy, the bathroom a little disappointing, with no window for ventilation I found it fogged up very quickly. The toilet and shower were next to each other separated by a curtain and a slight lip... More

Stayed here for 2 nights while attending a conference.

Rooms are a little dated but are comfortable, some are a bit smallish. Staff were friendly and helpful and even let us... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were a bit dated but clean and tidy. The food in the restaurant was of a good standard. Having a morning paper not delivered to your room was a bit of nuisance.

I booked this hotel for a weekend with my mum and dad in Wellington. She was very happy with it and said it was the best hotel she has stayed in. The location was very central and convenient for them. They enjoyed their stay, thanks for making it pleasant!
