    we liked the fact that the Hotel was quiet and were impressed by the staff. We also liked the huge range of food we could have for breakfast.

    Close access to Te Papa, beach, marina, Courtney Place, Restaurants, waterfront walkway and supermarket

    The best thing that I liked during my stay at Bay Plaza Hotel was the wonderfully friendly staff. What a pleasure !!!

    I couldn't find any maps or bus information in the room on how to get to the Beehive.

    Good

    Handy location to Te Papa and downtown and rerasonably priced

    the room I had on the 6th floor smelt of rising damp. You could smell it on the landing and the room, especialy the bathroom, even worse. Would not stay there again because of this and is the reason i marked comfort as fair. Place needs an upgrade, dated, dowdy.

    Exceptional

    Parking- drove in and there we were- no worries about this. 24 hour desk service, and a lovely lady on the desk. We were able to put our things away, and then just walk into Courtenay Place to enjoy the nightlife. We ended up at Downstage for Saturday night show- and so easy to walk back to Plaza later. Loved being able to go down for breakfast next morning, with options of breakfast deals.

    Very close to Courtenay Place and all the bars and restaurants.

    Very good

    Close to city

    Old Fridge made too much noise at night. So we had to turn it off at bed time. TV screen too small and old. Gurgling water sounds from ceiling annoying at night. Would only recommend going if the room was on a lower level.

    Very good

    Very central to Wellington city and waterfront attractions. Car parking on site and close to buses. Staff helpful solving a problem

    Some lights not working in bathroom

    Location was ok

    It was very basic, not very clean, old TV and a kettle that did not work very well. We paid $207 per night which did not represent value for money. Overall very poor quality and more like a very cheap budget hotel. Would not recommend to anyone else unless a revamp had taken place.

    I chose the hotel for its position, ease of travel, views of the harbour.

    Exceptional

    Loved the view out of my window. The bathroom was lovely, as was the bedroom. My room had everything I required and more. I thought the wee sitting/lounging area was well placed for the afternoon sun.

    No all good :-)
