Brentwood Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A bit tired. With cinder block construction and parking outside your door, it definitely had more of a motel feel instead of hotel feel. Only without a little sitting room and somewhere to boil an egg. However, the staff were friendly, it definitely didn’t seem they were claiming to be something thing they weren’t. Place was clean too. Good for a quick stopover

Check in very quick and easy, rooms dated but very clean , service staff very friendly and helpful,shuttle to and from airport quick and efficient. Didnt eat at restaurant but prices looked resasonable. .Airport, shops, supermarket all within 10 min walk. Had tea, coffee making facilitoes in rooms.Other viewers complain about the limited 100mb free wi fi, but I had NO problem as I only needed to check the mails and read on line newspaper. Better things to do than sit on WiFi all day.

Nearby was the local pool, pak n save, kfc and various shops in the Kilbirnie Town. o Very friendly service at front desk. The room was spacious and quiet. Ideal location & amenities There was limited amount of car park however we were able to park on the road.

We stayed here for one night before taking an early flight. Place looks like it’s getting an up grade which is good. Location is in a great place close to the airport. We were upstairs in one of the older rooms it was large and clean though dated. But was perfectly fine for what we needed. However no air conditioning on a 30degrees day. The staff were great and bought fans. The window would not stay open so we used the only thing available “a bread stick” Staff were super helpful on reception especially Robyn on check in. I would stay again it did the job. I would have put four stars but my only comment is the weak Free wifi they give. If you need to do any work for business you have to pay! Ok it’s only $7 but nearly everywhere else we have stayed offers free wifi when you have teenagers it’s almost a given. Stars here staff and pool.

She’s old but for the price and handy airport location it’s actually a pretty good option. I arrived at midnight and left at 6am so I can’t comment on the staff or atmosphere... Bed was ok, room seemed clean, plenty of offstreet parking.

The bed was comfortable is all I can say was good. Maggots in the light fixtures, wall cracked and heavy paint peeling in the bathroom, poor water pressure, very outdated building, extremely rude lady at the front desk seemed annoyed we were even there to check in. Didn’t bother eating there as it was way too expensive. Too far from the CBD as well however they did have free parking.

dated, lots of stuff broken in the room, bathroom unacceptable wall coming off,heater did not work, to noisy, need a total over was very bad, service not stay here it is not worth it

This hotel hasn't had an upgrade since the 80's. I used the wifi till my time ran out and I was told I had to pay $7 for more time. The shuttle was convenient. The rooms were clean. The only reason to stay here is if you want to drop off your rental car and take their shuttle in the morning.

Stranded in Wellington, first visit to New Zealand and our flight was cancelled due to bad weather - airline booked us in for the night!! The staff were friendly and very helpful. We had a twin room - beds were comfortable. The decor was aged but clean. For a night stop I would definitely recommend.

I stayed at the Brentwood for 3 nights on a business trip arranged by another party. It's one redeeming feature is that it is relatively close to the airport. Its decor is dated, the room I stayed in had paint peeling off the walls. I could hear the person snoring in the room next to me & the wooden floor above me creaked with every step of the person who got up at 4 a.m. The restaurant charged $31 for a very small & chewy fat streaked piece of steak with chips & the smallest serving of brocollini. The waiter looked like he wanted to be somewhere else. The van driver who took me to the airport was cheerful & friendly.
