Booked a weekend away in Wellington, leading up to the trip I received a confirmation E-mail from the hotel with the dates and advising the cot I requested would be in the room. Checked-in with sleeping daughter in tow, reception staff were not that friendly. After battling with the elevator - could not get the card to work, get into the room and the cot wasn't there. Wasn't the best start to our stay. Room was nice though, some furniture had taken a beating though, bedroom door (was in a suite) didn't latch shut and would open whenever it felt like it. View looking in the offices next door wasn't ideal but didn't spend much time indoors. Little touches like the phone still said on it "Holiday Inn". Unfortunately I don't have a lot of positive things to say about the experience - the ladies in the restaurant were very cheerful for early morning. All up, what we paid was not worth what we got. Would have rather stayed somewhere for less and expected to get this standard of service.
