The West Plaza hotel is an unimpressive sleeping factory with 102 rooms over 5 storeys in the centre of Wellington. Nearby and at the waterfront you find dozens of cafés, bars and restaurants. The West Plaza has a true seventies architecture and atmosphere, walls between rooms are relatively thin. From our room at the back-side of the building we had... More

This hotel was a wonderful find at a reasonable price. Clean modern and centrally located with its own parking garage. The buffet breakfast was a good value with enough variety, and open early. Great location to nightlife and restaurants.

Stayed here for one night before heading over the Strait. Second time of staying. It is a nice hotel with reasonable facilities (bar and restaurant). Parking can be a bit tricky as it is very limited but the location makes up for this.

We picked the West Plaza for its location and relatively low cost, expecting something basic. The rather nice lobby made it appear much higher end than it turned out to be. Our room had most of what it needed, although I was surprised that it only had a desk chair (hence no place for a second person to sit, as... More

Thanks for your comments about the location. Our accessible rooms do normally only have one chair to allow space for a wheelchair when necessary. I am pleased however that the staff could help with another chair for you . We are a mid-range value for money hotel in the heart of Wellington City and our room rates are priced accordingly....

Outstanding choice for business travellers who need to stay in windy Wellington for one or two nights. Located downtown, very close to the CBD and the waterfront, the West Plaza offers you a down-to-earth stay with very friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Maybe it is just Wellington because it is one of the coolest, immaculate, compact cities I have ever visited and therefore I liked the hotel too. Wellington has everything within walking distance to the hotel- water, mountains, gardens, open space, public art, museums, civic buildings, high-rises, theatres, etc. The hotel rooms are basic and small but they have what you...

Stayed at the West Plaza during the opening of the Arts Festival. It's a nice 3 1/2 star hotel with all comforts but without the luxuries. The rooms are basic but clean and tidy, have opening windows and a flat screen TV. The bed is quite soft but very comfortable. The location (SO close to everything) is the main selling... More

I have stayed at this hotel in Wellington on all of my business trips and have received top service & friendliness on each occasion. The cleanliness of the hotel & the rooms is second to none. The meals are a delight with top ingredients and a chef who obviously enjoys putting it together. This hotel I call "my home away... More

Great location for Courtney Place, water front, town hall/Michael Fowler Centre and an easy 10 - 15 minute walk to Parliament. Very helpful staff. Front desk staff were especially helpful in finding me accommodation when my flight was cancelled and there was no accommodation at West Plaza for an additional night. They went out of their way to (successfully) find... More

I stayed in a triple room with my two children. The good points were the price (only a few dollars more than a backpackers would have been for the three of us) and the location (very central, close to Cuba St and surrounded by great places to eat, library, galleries, etc.). Although the rooms are a little dated, the beds... More
