Surprised that Rydges put their name to this hotel”
This hotel appears to be in the middle of a refit after being taken over by Rydges and it shows. Room service is under resourced. Returning to the room at 5.30p.m. after a full day out on two days, the room had not been cleaned, bed not made or towels replaced and fridge not restocked............you would think a basic requirement of any hotel ?? Furthermore we were woken up by a guest who took it upon themselves to run up and down the (temporary and noisy) stairs at 4.30a.m. - Our room being next to the stairwell. One can only hope that sound proofing is part of the refurbishment programme.

Wellington stay”
When we arrived my wife called to ask whether we have parking.She was rude on the phone and when we arrived we told the reception desk they didn't do anything. When we merged the beds there was dirt under the bed.When we said to clean the room only the towels were chaned. As well as when room was cleaned they didn't refill the tea.Every morning we had to call to get tea bags from the reception. Wouldn't recommend again to stay in this hotel.

Well located in the city of Wellington. Room was small but is okay. Parking is free of charge should you decide to drive over to Wellington. Receptionist was kind enough to prepare our room since we arrived few hours early. Highly recommended.

Basic hotel could do with better staff”
We particularly chose this hotel because it was listed as not having paid parking, however when we arrived the woman on reception tried to charge us for parking. When your travelling for a long period of time you need to budget. We explained why we had booked, initially she was not very understanding and was quite rude but eventually gave our parking for free. The room was basic but clean, however it was very warm and is on a main road so noisy if you open the window. You have pay extra for breakfast. The guy on reception the next morning was unfriendly when we tried to book an extra night but didn’t because the price was almost double! There is a friendly staff memeber from Liverpool though.

Nothing special, they've made some renovations so it's a bit more modern than it used to be. For the price it's fine - a bed and a shower. The food in the ground floor restaurant is good and reasonably priced.

Not worth the money, needs refurb!”
I was dissapointed in the Hotel as a whole. Rooms were cleaned extremely late on day and then not at all the next day as well as the cups looking like they were from the 90's with a permanent stain on them. The Hotel is pretty shabby, entrance and restaurant look nice and then the rooms were old, out dated, shabby and looked dirty due to age. Whilst the staff helped with an issue I presented be warned there is misleading information about costs for the restaurant. Location is good and staff were great. Food we ate was awesome but it's not enough to get me back.

Screaming music in foyer. No bedside clock. No door service request tabs and none given. ”
Breakfast buffet not replenished. Room rubbish not removed one day. Was there from Monday to Friday and the room was never vaccumed in that time. Charged top hotel price for backpacker type accommodation.

I have stayed at this hotel on numerous occasions due to its location. It is only 10 minutes walk from the train station, bus station and inter island ferry terminal. A leisurely stroll to the City and harbour side.

A fairly basic hotel, and a small room, but it was reasonably cheap, clean, staff were friendly and my room (on Level 9, away from the motorway side...) was quiet.

We couldn't sleep properly as there was too much noise outside our room. Kids yelling and running on the corridor, early in the morning.

I complained when I arrived and got moved to a cleaner room. I feel that the whole place was dirty. our room had dirty tiissues and drink lids and other assorted rubbish under the bed of our newly renovated room. dust on the top of everything, mould in the bathroom,hallways that didnt get vacuumed the 4 days we were there and a customer laundry that looked like a uni flat.They had 3 nights to clean our room properly after we complained but despite me explaining what was wrong they failed to do anything about it. they failed to tell us when booking that they were undergoing renovations and the parking was $15 per day. very drunk customers wandering around the hallways at night meant i wouldnt go out without my husband. totally disappointed with the whole experience and we left thinking that this was a boarding hostel for homeless . most clients we come across in the hallways and lifts were drunk or high, smelled terrible and seemed that they were permanent residents, Is this a motel/hotel or emergancy accomadation?Will never go here again and am telling everyone what a dump this place is!!!!!

I think the service is quite good. I really like what they write on the shampoo, body clean and conditioner. They are really funny and interested me. Also, they hotel is next to the highway, so it is very convenient for us to go home. I really like this hotel!

A comfortable hotel to stay. Staff were very helpful. Bed wasn't that great as it had a definite slump in the centre of the mattress which made it uncomfortable to sleep on. Otherwise a good place to stay close to central Wellington.
