“Good simple hotel”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

We've stayed at the Travelodge a couple of times over the last few years and found it perfectly fine. It is well located for any activities in the central city, and it is good value. The rooms are plain but nice enough for a few nights stay. If you are given one of the rooms on the higher floors there can be some glimpses of the harbour.

The Travelodge Wellington provides good budget accommodation in a decent location. It is relatively central and the service is good. The room is quite small, bathroom very small and the shower was terrible.

Great hotel in fantastic location for sightseeing.
Nice clean basic rooms. Good rate with on site parking.
Ask for seaview rooms away from the lifts. Staff we're very friendly and helpful. Hotel entrance a little difficult to find at first but all good after that. Would definitely recommend and would stay again next time in Wellington.

Close to bus stop from airport, walking distance to railway station. The room was spacious, not cramped like many are.
Would have rated excellent except for expensive Wi-Fi - free Wi-Fi was very limited and could only log on once every 24 hours - useless for checking emails and no Sky movies - only expensive hire options.

Centrally located clean, reliable budget but not spartan accommodation. Loved having a microwave and a few dishes in the room, even though we didn't use them. Second visit. Would look first there again.

Dear Zainab K,

Thank you for your review. I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay with us. As an inner city hotel parking is a rare commodity especially in Wellington I assure you our rates are very competitive and you won't find much better anywhere else. I am glad you liked our location in the city and found our rooms to be clean.

Late check in wasn't an issue, tidy warm rooms, opening windows which made rooms smell very fresh, great value, Great selection at Buffet Breakfast. Very central location made getting around very easy
Highly recommended.
