“Not bad.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2011

Got a harbour view room for a very nice price and was pleasantly surprised to find the room delivered on the view. The room was a good size, clean and serviceable, with electric jug and microwave. The staff were friendly and competent. One annoyance was the bathroom had an unpleasant odour. running the shower for a bit took care of that. Location is fantastic.

Travelled all round NZ and this was the least value-for-money hotel we stayed in. Hotel was pretty bland but well-positioned near the waterfront and a 15 minute walk from the railway station. Room was tiny - about a metre space around each side of the bed and it cost £150 per night - they hiked prices up for RWC even though hotel didn't seem full. It was clean and had a microwave and dishes/mugs/cutlery for two people. Reception was friendly but WiFi was a ridiculous price. Lift was easily accessible form the street and shopping mall so nothing to stop the general public stepping in and getting access to the floors. You could get better elsewhere I'm sure.

Dear Bonnyblink
Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay with us at Travelodge Wellington. I am glad you found our team to be helpful and are location to be convenient. Game days over the Rugby World Cup are classed as an event by the hotel due to demand and therefore event pricing does apply.
Kind Regards

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Travelodge.
We got a great deal on what if? So the room we got was a great price.
The staff were friendly and our room was clean and tidy. We had a nice view of the water (between buildings but a view none the less).
The location is great and I would recommend this place.

This was a stop off point on our arrival on North Island. The hotel had been recommended as newly-refurbished and it was indeed of a clean and tidy appearance. We opted not to pay extra for a room with a view, so can't complain about the view into the office building next door. However we were surprised the next morning at how late the office was staffed given that it would appear that people go to bed very early in New Zealand! The hotel bar was completely shut down - and locked - by 11 pm. This was a disappointment as we came back to the hotel for a nightcap. ON the plus side, the breakfast buffet was well stocked, and generously offered, and every member of staff we met was really helpful and friendly.

Dear Philking64,
Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback.
Please accept my apologies for your disappointment at the bar being closed by 11pm, how late we keep open is subject to the guest demand for it. We endeavor to keep the bar open as much as possible.
I’m very pleased to hear that you found our team helpful and friendly and the breakfast buffet so enjoyable.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Travelodge again sometime soon!
Kind Regards, John Bristowe Hotel Manager

I've stayed at the Wellington Travelodge on a number of occasions, and on every occasion the team have been friendly and professional which encourages me to return. Travelodge Wellington is my first choice for accommodation because of that fact.

The rooms are well proportioned, great value and being in the middle of the city are best placed for great restaurants, bars, the waterfront and the stadium! Each room has a microwave, fridge, decent hairdryer and are always clean and tidy.

Id definitely recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a good hotel in a good location.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less noise. Airport transfers can be organised through the front desk.

The hotel is nothing special... but the location is very good - Plimmers' Steps. Close to the national and art museum, shopping and public transport. Breakfast is just a tad above a continental breakfast. Rooms are quite small. It is clean and relatively quiet. Wifi is very expensive -- use the shared computers on the 6th floor.
