“Pleasant overnight stay”
Reviewed July 6, 2011

Had no problems with quality of hotel. Staff were friendly. Thought the dining area was a bit stark, could do with a bit more flare. Was going to eat there in the evening, but it did not look inviting. Breakfast was good though, and it looked better in the daylight.,

Ibis Wellington located in the city center – Featherston Street, which is one block away from the busiest Lambton Quay. It is very convenient as most buses stop along the Lambton Quay. Even the airport bus stops here. We just got out at one of the stop and walked across the road where the Ibis located

There is a big and clean lobby welcome you upon your arrival. Just like the standard Accor qualities that never fail us. Right behind the reception, there is an on site restaurant and café. We had a buffet breakfast there and it was fantastic. Especially after almost one week’s continental breakfast, having a warm, cooked breakfast was a nice change!

The room was clean and spacious. Our king size bed was comfortable. The room consist of coffee/tea making facilities, flat screen TV, air-conditioner/heater, iron ..etc. A nice clean bathroom with enough amenities (there was a hair dryer in the bathroom) - really nothing to complain about.

We had a beer and tea at the lounge (which was the café/restaurant during the day) It was nice ambience and staff were helpful.

One of our concerns was parking. There were not enough parking spaces. Luckily we were going to return the rental car and that we did not need parking after we checked in to the hotel.

Stayed August 2010, traveled as a couple

Dear VanessaMunYee,

Thank you for your constructive comments regarding your recent stay with us. I am glad that you enjoyed the close proximity of the hotel to Lambton Quay and you got to experience a nice hot breakfast in Vivant! restaurant. I am glad that you enjoyed the spaciousness of the rooms and the cleanliness, something we pride ourselves on. Thank you also for your comments regarding parking, we do have limited parking on site and this must be pre-booked however we do have affiliations with local parking stations that can be utilised if our car park is full.

Kind regards,

Nathan Frost

This hotel is handy to the waterfront , Lambton Quay... We were able to walk everywhere from here. Unfortunately, for us, the service didn't match the location. Our only meal at the restaurant saw us not being offered water, lettuce preheated on a burger. There was a large group of people staying together who set up camp outside the entrance and smoked heavily. When we went to leave they were performing an action song and we couldn't get into the hotel and were not assisted by the attendants at all - one was rude to us. We had all our meals at the Novotel where the service was exceptional!
