It is a conveniently located hotel I had booked a twin bedded room some months before leaving the UK. We were eventually offered a single/double bed and had to have a (very comfortable) "put-you-up" bed squeezed into the room. Seperetely, the restauant manageress was graceless and "sour" and gave a poor impressing of hospitality. I would never stay in the Hliday Inn in Welligton or recommend it ti friends or business colleagues
Kids running in hallway No car park for general use - only valet offered and not told how much it would cost
staff were very courteous and helpful food was excellent and our room was very comfortable and well appointed no
the price that gave me was more than price for other guest about 35%
Location was good and staff very helpful and friendly Room decor and fittings a could use a bit of a redo
The whole family enjoyed the swimming pool and the spa.
That is was clean and quite. Staff were obliging, and everything I wanted to go to whilst in Wellington was within walking distance. Having to pay for car parking was a bit odd!
Location to city, pleasant staff, quiet at night. The bed was too small and my husband and i had to sleep in separate beds. I didn't realise a had booked a room with 2 double beds only.
Ran in the Wellington marathon
Great location, comfortable and warm
The location of this hotel is very good for visits to sporting events. Ease of travel airport or train station, to hotel, to sporting venue is great. Handy to bars and restaurants. Good views over the harbor from some rooms. Semi see through glass wall between bathroom / toilet and bed is a bad concept.
Only stayed for one night after travelling on ferry from South Island and location was very convenient for this. Upgraded to harbour view room which was comfortable and had everything we needed.
The friendly, attentive staff The bed was hard.
it has access to a good nearby gym and the hotel staff were very helpful and friendly
Enjoyed excellent meals and service in the dining room. Do not want my remarks to be published.
location to Westpac Stadium
It was very quiet in the room and it had a good shower I would have liked extra bedding. I was a bit cold in bed.
Location The pillows were very uncomfortable
The Staff were friendly and very helpful, Nothing was too much trouble. The Girls always greeted e with a smile. Very impressed. Two problems only with my stay. Firstly the chairs in the Restaurant are far too low for comfort and the tables don't accommodate ones legs with ease,Secondly Cafenet inernet connection is useless. I paid $20 and had 5 minutes use of it as I continued to be cut off. It took 4 phone calls to their help desk also one call from your Reception to the help desk, which still didn't solve the problem. Need to change it. I heard the same complaint from other guests
Nice and quiet on the 8th floor. It's within easy walking distance of almost all of WGT main places-to-see. On one day the room was made up only at 2.30pm, but the next day there was a knock on the door at 9.30am from the staff. The hotel has a check-in after 2, check-out by 10 policy and the staff ought to abide by their own rules.
The service was fantastic! The staff were very friendly and welcoming and I felt that they would be able to help with anything I needed help with, very capable. My room was very comfortable and the room service was great. The food was delicious! I didn't have time to use the pool, sauna or gym. The hotel was handy to seeing Wellington and shopping! A few small issues with the cleaning - dirty teaspoons and a mark by the shower that could easily have been cleaned off. I didn't feel that the room was dirty though, it was very comfortable.
Clean rooms, good restaurant
I liked the old world charm and friendly service. The breakfast was very good and prepared from scratch. The standard room was very small but we were upgraded the next night to a lovely, spacious room. The standard room would be fine for a one-night business stay for one person.
staff were friendly,smiley.They kept my luggage in the store room before check-in and after check- out so that I can walk around in town.Nice big bathroom.So quiet night and day. I didn't like a big photo of old man( president od something) in the room,staring at me.Hope they had a stainless kettle instead of an old plastic one.There was only one staff in the morning to serve breakfast,and to serve people at the reception.had to wait for a while for my tea.I felt sorry for her doing everything on her own.
Good, quiet and genteel atmosphere centrally located. Basic room was a bit on the small side and didnt like the double bed pushed against an outside wall. Ok for single but not for double. Bathroom on the other hand was big with plenty of room. Full breakfast at $30 was expensive and you should consider making it an all inclusive B&B price.
The staff were very attentive. The hotel was well situated near the waterfront. The breakfasts were very good. We like hotels with old world charm and character but the Wellesley seems quite run down and somewhat tired in general appearance.
