“Value for money & car park included!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2011

Situated close by the cafe & entertainment areas of Wellington, Hotel Willis is a little dated, but has reasonable sized rooms, is clean & quiet.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the front of the Hotel.

I would personally recommend anyone this hotel.
A fantastic location, handy to the city, and most importantly, kind and friendly staff.

I have enjoyed the accommodation of Hotel Willis on several occasions in the last twelve months. On each visit I have been made very welcome and provided with a room that is comfortably appointed and furnished. The beds in particular are great. All the amenities have worked well and I have enjoyed a leisurely breakfast in the dining room with the newspaper. While the hotel is not new, nor 5-star, it provides excellent value for money and I warmly recommend it.

Don't know what some people expect. No-one can expect to book in at 7am anywhere in the world unless they are paying for an extra nights accommodation. This is great plae to stay, friendly staff and excellent value. Where else can you stay with guaranteed parking (most hotels wont guarantee, or you have to pay extra) in the city, at such great rates.

My partner and I were ready for a break in Wellington. We found Hotel Willis on the internet and booked in for 3 nights. We were most impressed with the well appointed room, friendly and helpful staff, and the breakfast service. We made good use of the excellent Wellington Day Tripper transport service, using buses, trains and ferries to explore museums, shops and restaurants. Hotel Willis is centrally located to make easy use of these services and the hotel reception staff were very helpful in suggesting places to visit and activities to do. We were able to leave our vehicle in the hotel park and not have to endure traffic and parking hassels.We had a wonderful time in the city each day, and greatly appreciated the comfortable bed, peaceful room, luxurious lounge and internet service to relax with at the end of each outing. We returned home rested and well satisfied with the value for money, of our stay. We will be returning, and highly recommend Hotel Willis.
