“Love its location, close to shopping, dining areas, and waterfront”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

The main reasons that we selected the Travelodge at Wellington Plimmer Towers were its location and its values. For these reasons, we are pleased with our stay.
Though there is a connected parking garage, we found this wasn’t much benefiting us.
We took 2 half-day tours while staying here. The rest of the time we walked exclusively. The city center location of this hotel enabled us to do so comfortably.
What I liked:
1. This hotel location is definitely its best attribute. It locates right in the city center, shopping areas, many best restaurants are actually within walking distance.
2. The top floor suite was slightly larger and provides great views to both city streets and waterfront. In the morning, the room is sun-filled, bringing in plenty of energy to start a day. After a long day visiting the city, the windows provide calm and pleasant sights of the bay.
3. Staff is friendly and helpful. They provided me an adapter, as well as made calls arranging local pick up.
What I disliked:
1. The entrance which is oddly connected to an adjacent parking garage. It presented an initial unwelcoming feeling.
2. There is no real lobby, just a long and slightly narrow reception area. Again, I didn’t get that welcoming feeling that I had at all remaining hotels

Room Tip: Corner suites are larger. Select top floors to get greater water views. Though the hotel is connec...

Dear pdn1212,

Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. I am pleased to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed our central location and were able to take full advantage of all that Wellington city has to offer.

pdn1212, I do often receive feedback regarding our odd hotel entrance and apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. I certainly hope our friendly team and immaculate hotel did make for this.

Thank you once again. I do hope to welcome you back in the near future.

close to city centre, good shopping and restaurants, a pity the entry is hidden inside the car park so you go looking all over the place you don't want to drive into a car park.... BUT that is the way in to the lobby

Dear Giuseppe T,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed our central location and were well looked after by our team.

Giuseppe T, you are right in saying that the entrance to the hotel is a bit out of the ordinary, however, I hope that upon arriving at reception, we made up for the awkward entrance.

Thank you again for sharing your comments with us. I hope to welcome you back in the near future.

Excellent service, nice room which was clean and quite. Staff had pleasant smiles, were helpful and easy to deal with. A good place to stay when in Wellington on business and is situated close/handy to the CBD. Thank you.

I found the staff at this hotel to be very helpful but not in an overwhelming way which is always appreciated.

My room was immaculately cleaned on a daily basis and the housekeeping staff were barely noticed in terms of noise. I was in a room right next to the service storage and was worried that would be really noisy but it wasn't at all.

The room style was fairly consistent with most Travelodge hotels - nothing too fancy but also modern enough.

The location of this hotel might be problematic for visitors with special accessibility needs. The location is good for business and proximity to the wharf area. It is a about a 10 minute walk from the most active areas for nightlife.
