pleasantly surprised.

Very central, walking distance to Cuba quarter where we had a great meal. The room was clean and tidy, could do with a bit more colour because of the beige overload! The free cooked brekie was our highlight. Thanks

very bad

Actually I should say that I did not have a good stay at this hotel. some staff were not friendly and I should tell that they lied me. because when I reserved my room wifi internet was included for up to 300 MB for every 24 hrs but they told me that I can have access to free wifi internet in the lounge for just 30 minutes in 24 hrs!!! I do not recommend this hotel to anyone, I think that I could reserve better room in other hotels by the money (130$ for each night) that I paid for it.

Very Convenient to the city

We thought the hotel was extremely good value for money. Easy access to the city and suburbs. The staff were very friendly and helpful and having free parking was a huge help (a bit 'hit and miss' at times at night, but patience and 2 or 3 times driving around the block meant that we eventually found a park. All in all we were very happy wit our stay.

Easy access to downtown Wellington

This is really a 2.5 Star hotel (no option available to mark it as such in the ratestogo rating scale!). The room was tiny though clean and the bed comfortable. Barely enough room to open suitcases. There is NO AIR CON - to get some air you need to open the windows - the windows in the bedroom and bathroom open to heavy traffic on Victoria Street! Very little hanging space for clothes. The towels were very tired and skimpy and the room and bathroom also very tired looking. Barely a trickle of water in the shower. Our key cards did not work after 24hrs at the hotel and had to be reissued. Staff were very helpful. The WiFi/internet facility is only available in the lobby/lounge downstairs and only for half an hour per person per day! The location is good - only a 10 minute walk to Cuba Street and downtown Wellington.

OK and is being improved

New owners (used to be the Mecure) with big plans, so this is a work in progress. Staff were lovely, room was very very very small and crowded. they've done a bit of a refit, but the original old windows which are a bit grotty are still in place. Location at the top end of town, but not too far to walk to Cuba St to lots of restaurants

Basic Wellington Accommodations

This Mercure is well located for access to the waterfront, Te Papa and many nighttime activities. It was fairly basic but clean, staff was friendly and was a good value.

Not bad but barely worth 3***

Adequate and clean room but not a great start when you arrive to find the lift is not functioning and you have to haul your cases up to the first floor in order to use a service elevator. And that is at 1am!!!!! Hotel looked a bit tired but represented good value for what we paid, and suited a brief one night stopover but woul not use for a longer stay. Did not use any hotel facilities.

Too, too hard

It's a three star hotel and it felt like it. Normally I would never stay in this type of hotel, but accomodation was short in Wellington for the weekend in question. Nice, friendly staff and quite accomodating. Cleaning and room supplies was a little sloppy and we had to ask for extra pillows and towels. The major concern was the terrible lift, which creaked and groaned and one night it was broken and we had to walk six flights to get to our room. It didn't feel like a great place to stay, felt like we were in prison, but probably could be OK for a 3 star hotel. Location wasn't brilliant, so would not recommend.

Great Value and friendly staff

You can see where Mercure has lifted this old girl up. Still a little work ti do but lovely place with GREAT helpful staff. Looking forward to my next stay. The only complaint I have was breakfast. Although the continental breakfast was well stocked and yummy, I would have preferred the option of a cooked breakfast. Something for you guys to work toward. :-)
