I stayed at the Brentwood hotel for two nights while attending a conference there. The hotel is very close to Wellington airport (about 5 minutes in a taxi). The conference facilities are good and it is obvious that hosting conferences is the hotels main purpose and specialty. The rooms however are old and in much need of a makeover. The decor is drab and the room I stayed in smelt musty.
The room was fitted with a heater and no air conditioning. So if you want to cool down you must open a window. This is fine however the traffic noise and the noise of aircraft is quite significant. On one entire half of my bed, the mattress springs had collapsed which made it impossible to sleep on that side.
The bathroom was slightly more modern than the rest of the room and was a bit cluttered. I stayed in an upstairs room (there are only two floors) and there is no lift so expect to have to lug your suitcases one flight. The floors throughout the accommodation wings are creaky so people walking past your room make quite a bit of noise.
The restaurant serves average quality food at standard prices. The staff in the restaurant and throughout the hotel are friendly and attentive. Overall the hotel focuses more on the conference experience but could pay a bit more attention to the accommodation.
