We booked in to the Bay Plaza Hotel because we stayed in Wellington unexpectedly and rooms were few and far between. The reception staff were polite but not overly friendly or helpful. The reception area looked quite modern and we hoped for a nice room. What a terrible disappointment! I could have cried. Our rooms were old and felt grubby. The bathrooms had mouldy sealant around the bath and the tiles were avocado green. The toilets flushed with a loud 'gush' which wouldn't have been so bad if we weren't woken up by our neighbour every time they used theirs too. The bed covers and cushions were old and brown and the first thing I did was strip them off the bed. The bed linen looked clean but had a crumpled, un-ironed look so I couldn't help wondering if they'd actually been changed. It's the kind of hotel where you don't fancy walking on the carpet with bare feet and don't want to touch anything really. To sum up, for the money I expected more and it's not acceptable in 2013. I've stayed in several hotels in the last two weeks and this is easily the worst. Come on management, stump up some money and bring the Bay Plaza in to the 21st century. Don't stay there!
