We stayed at the Trinity last year and thought we'd give it another try with a Grab One deal. Check in was friendly, some confusion over the promised bottle of bubbly on check in, but we were happy to wait until it was chilled. Our room was on the side near the back, a small room with a comfortable bed and a very compact bathroom. The shower head seemed too big for the size of the shower box and water sprayed all over the floor when the door was opened. It seemed like all the air conditioning units for the entire hotel were crowded outside our window and these were very noisy with the window open, fortunately not a problem with the window closed at night, but then no way of relieving the humidity in the room.
We had complimentary cooked breakfast both mornings, but the Sunday breakfast was not available at its advertised start time of 8am, as the chef hadn't turned up for work. He arrived about 8.15 and cooked an okay breakfast of two eggs on toast, one small rasher of bacon and half a tomato. No cereals, juice or fruit, just urn coffee and teabags.
The staff are pleasant enough, but seem a bit lacking in focus, either they are all new employees or they need to do KiwiHost courses - none of them appeared to be very happy in their work. Cleaning was somewhat slapdash, eg new towels provided but old ones left, shampoo not replaced.
The Trinity is quite well placed for getting around Wellington on foot, parking in the small garage, at $15 a day, is about average.
