I am a regular business visitor to the 'Westie' and stay there every time I am in Wellington because I loathe the Ibis, Travellodge etc which are the other mid-value hotels in central Wellington. The West Plaza is in a great location, extremely clean, and has a really nice ambience. The baby grand in the foyer which sits between a lovely bar on one side and the restaurant on the other and which is played nightly whilst dinner is served is a lovely touch, as is the always present large vase of flowers on it. This is not a 'flash' place, but this week when I stayed there I had a meal which could have been served up at a fine dining restaurant, it was that good. It was a chicken breast stuffed with spinach and cream cheese on a lemon and green pea risotto, and it was to die for! Absolutely top class, and after phoning to compliment the chef I found out he has been there only two weeks, an english guy, and gee I hope he continues to stay there. If you only have one reason to stay at the Westie, then do it for the food, but everything else is fabulous too, especially the great staff they have there and they've been there for ages too which indicates to me, because they're all young, that they must enjoy it there also because they've stayed. Great hotel.
