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.

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.

Good location in Wellington

The service here is seriously lacking and DO NOT eat at the restaurant. Otherwise, the beds are nice and large and the location of the hotel is great.

Mercure Hotel. Willis Street, Wellington. NZ

If you have read earlier reviews about the Mercure Hotel on Willis Street, then ignore them. My wife & I stayed there in july 2011 and we both found the Hotel to be far better than people had written. It has been re furbished and the rooms were really smart, clean & with new comfortable beds. Can't recommend it enough. It is very close to Cuba St and just a 10 minute walk to Courtney Place. The reception staff were very courteous and helpfull and posted my mail for me prior to my departure at 4 am. If you find one better for the price, then let me know. Ken Bolton. UK.

Nothing special, but extra fees

Wifi was outrageously expensive. The hotel was decent, nothing special. Probably wouldn't book again.

Friendly and helpful staff on the front desk and in the restaurant. Nicely out of the centre of the town but only 10 mins walk in. Cooked breakfast was a little disappointing but still good value. Clean tidy room with all you could need. Thoroughly enjoyed stay here.

Decent Hotel

The hotel was an average hotel but was not in the most ideal location for use. We would have liked to be closer to the wharf. The staff was not very good. Our trash was not emptied at certain points when they came into clean our room and they would not replenish our toilet paper. It wasn't a bad hotel but I think we could find a hotel with the same if not better service at a better location in Wellington.

The hotel did have a great restaurant and was within in very close walking distance to some great bars. I recommend the hamburger at the hotel restaraunt. Best hamburger I've ever had!
