Brentwood Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel does it's job sufficiently. It's generally pretty tidy, though not elaborate. The staff are friendly, and the meals are ok (though the eggs taste like gross powdered eggs I've gotten overseas before). I had an issue with parking on site, which was limited due to inconsiderate guests and an inconvenient layout of the parking lot, so ended up parking on the street. The biggest problem I had was the noise at night. The place is NOT quiet. I got woken up from people knocking on other doors - it was loud enough I thought it was on mine. I got woken up by people coming down the hall - the floor squeaks and squawks. I got woken up all all hours by the people in the room upstairs. I got woken up by the noise of the parking lot. Just as well I use a sleep "rain" app on my phone to drown out the rest!!

I attended the NZDF Convention held over three days at the Brentwood. We made use of three rooms which suited our requirements very well. Even though there were other meetings on at the same time there was no feeling of crowding. The bedrooms rooms were spacious (even with four sharing) and had everything we needed.

Stayed for a couple of nights in September and really happy overall. Located in Kilbirnie so a fair hike from central Wellington but super super close to airport. Downside to that of course is you have the jets flying over at low altitude which is very noisy. Room itself was fine. Not flash but had the basics you need. No newspaper in the morning despite requesting one but this seems to happen at most places so not peculiar to this hotel. Kilbirnie is a surprise with supermarkets very close by (10 minute walk) as well as a couple of good restaurants. Recommend Tandoori Heritage for great Indian cuisine or stay at the hotel for some great meals. Sure the rooms are dated and you can hear people walking around on creaky floorboards upstairs at all hours but for the money it can't be beat. I'll be back for sure.

Great venue to leave your car, stay the night before flying out and coming back. Food was nice and waitress friendly. The shuttle bus was bang on time when we got back at midnight. Room was spacious and the shower was good to freshen up before and after our flights.

This is a good option for a small conference and/or short stays. Probably not the venue for a romantic weekend. While the place is certainly on the tired side property wise the staff are helpful and friendly, the food is good and the location is great re the airport and it is easy to get into the city. Happy to stay there for conferences/meetings.

A large single story hotel very close to airport in Evans Bay. Staff were great, rooms a little tired but comfortable. Very limited facilities in the room. Very close to 2 major supermarkets, and takeaways. Quiet and close to all the venues we needed. A way from CBD so need car or can use pub transport to get to the best parts of the city.

We rented a non-smoking room for a short stay of a few hours for our two early-teenage children who were being looked after by a friend. They all reported that the room was clean and comfortable, and very close to the airport. Convenient for a few hours' stay to catch a red eye long haul flight to Singapore. We booked here because the hotel advertisement showed they had free car parks available at the hotel, and restaurants, cafes and other takeaway places were close by. We were comforted that their check-in and check-out went smoothly and their stay was very safe and comfortable. We'd do the same again in future.

Booking in was very friendly and helpful with our bags and parking! Our room was immaculate and warm on our arrival. The bed was great and so comfortable. We'd had an exhausting day and so we opted for a room service meal. This arrived promptly, was beautifully cooked and just what we felt like eating. We had an early morning call and the airport shuttle left on time. This shuttle also arrived to pick us up when we came home. What a great way to start (and return) from an overseas trip!!!!!! Grateful thanks to the staff at Brentwood :-D

Very enjoyable stay, room was clean & comfortable. The restaurant food was good with a nice bar. The hotel is ideal with a free shuttle bus to & from the airport, plus it is not over priced like some Wellington hotels. One negative was that we where on the top floor & both of us being in our 70s with no elevator found it hard work with our cases going upstairs. Not really the hotels fault we should have explained to the hotel when we booked. We would have asked the receptionist but she found it hard to smile so we left it there. Come on young lady you are letting the team down a welcoming smile cost nothing. Overall very good & we will stay there again.

our room was very good warm at night, swimming pool out side restaurant in the hotel a bar in the hotel, a very enjoyable stay, not a lot for children to do in the hotel but there is a lot to do in Wellington
