Myself and a friend needed to book in somewhere overnight in Wellington to catch a morning flight out of Wellington international.
After looking at various websites I booked via the Bay Plazas own website for a Twin room, 2 course dinner for 2 and full Continental breakfast for two package for $190. After reading reviews of here wasn't expecting a grandplace but a comfortable base. Was pleasantly surprised. While yes the rooms are old, still has an old tv and tiled bathroom but new shower head, new bedding and very clean. excellent view of Te papa and water front.
Most of your basics are hidden ie jug is hidden in the wardrobe with a good range of drinks tea, coffee, hot chocolate, decaf coffee, lemon tea, sugar. the note with these was rather confusing saying to contact reception for fresh milk. We did eventually find the mini bar with uth milk (fridge was hidden in a cupboard under the tv) the mini bar had a small range of items to select from.
Parking was $18 a day and at the back of the hotel a plan simple car park reasonably well lit
By far the dinner was the most exemplary part of our stay we were given the option of main and either or of entree or desert.
We had steak and fish of the day mains and chocolate cake and banana bread and butter pudding
All was Delicious!! would highly recommend
The continental breakfast was excellent 3 x help yourself fruit juices, fresh fruit, cereals, toast.The cooked breakfast was ok bacon was cheap and dry, eggs were bland and not free range but ok.
nice decor but does over look the road and new world supermarket.
Staff were attentive and pleasant in both reception and restaurant
be aware there is a $100 deposit to cover parking, drinks in bar etc that you get the balance back on check out
the fridge randomly buzzs- is by beds
room overheated no way to control
the tv remote was dodgy
jug is too big for bathroom sink
some rough around the edges and walls, light switches
but the positives out way the negatives and have recommend to others! I will be back soon
