Its not the cheapest hotel in Wellington and it was chosen for a change from other hotels and it seems that the bathroom was not cleaned properly that day (hairs on wall and obvious urine around toilet pan) didn't enhance the dated decor (paint flaking, small cracks in the bathroom rooms).
The bedroom was much better and everything great - but the TV reception was so bad we could not watch any local tv or sky.
Staff were generally friendly and helpful but seemed a little thin on the ground so waiting, waiting, waiting for a person to get your car). Often no one on desk and a queue of patrons waiting.
Then its $12 for internet and $20 for parking - extra on top.
I think if a little attention to detail is made, it would be a great stay and the location is fantastic - can't be faulted. Fixing the little stuff goes a long way, charging for extras with this not so good.
Won't be going back - for the same money should get a better value.
