“Disappointing”
Reviewed August 8, 2009

Chose the Travelodge as it had a great reopening special and is now fully refurbished however stay overall was disappointing.
Biggest issue was room was way too hot and stuffy. Its winter in Wellington but our room was stifling hot and stuffy so rang reception at 11pm to ask how to turn down heating. Was told hotel doesn't have central aircon and to turn off heater in the room but heater in room was off! Was told the only remedy was to open windows which worked but then had to endure street and party noise all night! A bad nights sleep was had!
Other issues included - only 1 of 2 lifts was working, some areas were still under construction, we couldn't believe it when staff held up the only working elevator for five minutes while they loaded it with laundry bags literally forcing waiting guests into the corners of the lift, and finally someone should tell the breakfast guy not to handle all the croissants with his bare hands.
Nicely renovated decor, friendly reception staff but overall experience was disappointing - unlikely to return

It's great to see an old lady getting some TLC! Toga NZ has taken over the lease of this property and is now trading as Travelodge Wellington. The service is with a smile and the plans for the next twelve months sound exciting - full refurbishment of the rooms! They even painted the outside of the building!! Can't wait to go back and see the final results.
