I had the chance to spend 3 nights in Wellington,November 2011. After looking on the web site the "Trinity Hotel" in Willis street looked ideal as it was in a good location,as I didn't have my own transport I wanted to be able to walk to many attractions.
I booked on line,was given a 3 for 2 deal,which was great
A five hour trip instead of 20minutes marked the beginning of my holiday,as the weather was bad,so was diverted from Wellington to Palmerston North,then to Wellington by bus.
The Hotel reception area was bright and clean, the staff member welcoming,helpful.
The elevator made its way to the 4th floor.
The Hall ways to the rooms were like a rabbit warren,rooms squashed closely together.
Swipe card to enter.
The rooms one window looked out at the church,the window itself was dirty the aluminium framing filthy and mouldy.
The paint was peeling off around the wooden frame.
The bathroom was small,with a corner shower. The grouting and silicone in the shower was also very mouldy.
There was an old style TV precariously hanging on a wall bracket almost overhanging the bed.
Where the smoke detector should have been, there was a lone wire hanging down, attached to nothing. Hopefully the sprinkler system would work if needed???
The room had quite a musty odour.
Very noisy from the street below.
When the guests in the room next door shut their door the wall in my room literally moved.
I ate in the restaurant for various meals,the food was always good,served hot. The staff were excellent,friendly,helpful,couldn't ask for better.
