Decent 3 star chain hotel which delivers what it should, no more, no less. Staff are friendly and helpful but having stayed here around 4-5 times now I never find them particularly warm.
The other day at breakfast the music was so thumping and loud I had to ask them to tone it down it was 0630 and they had some hellish tunes on which scrambled my brain. I suggested this was something for the evening not the early hours. The F&B man agreed and said he was trying to get this playlist changed to the evening - they did turn it down and apologised, so all good!
It's worth pointing out for those who are driving and checking in a bit later that free street parking is available from 18:00-08:00 on the streets outside and around the corner. Park outside, drop off your stuff then go and find a parking space. Overnight parking charges on offer are otherwise exorbitant from what I overheard at the counter as I was waiting to check out, just a few days ago
For those of you who are lighter sleepers as I am this location may suit you better than somewhere on Courtney Place which can be incredibly noisy!
The food offer is pretty good though I think prices are a little high for the experience on offer and lack of intimacy in the 'lounge/diner area' which is attached to reception
You can pay around the same and have a nicer environment if you're prepared to venture out
All the rooms that I have stayed in have been refurbished and are always nice and clean with everything working
If you can get this hotel for between $90-139 which I have recently it's worth it. Sometimes rates can be exorbitant when something is on in Wellington e.g. $250-300 then it would not be!
So, top tip if you're coming to Wellington for a gig/show book nice and early to get the best price
Aim for a higher floor away from any street noise
