Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   Not the most modern accommodation in the city, but extremely well priced and PERFECTLY located. I would strongly recommend booking a car-park and walking to your destinations around the inner city. I will most definately be staying here again.

Review:   The worst hotel ever. The personal at the reception was nice. But the waiter (female) was terrible. No greeting , no help, nothing. Unfriendly as its best. Her motto seemed to be...be as unfriendly as you can. Target fulfilled. I have been to many Hotels, but I have never expierenced something like this. Terrible.

Review:   We hoped for the top view of the city but the building was under construction so our view was obstructed by scaffolding outside our window which was a BIG shame for us. Very basic and out dated rooms with no heating, which is a shame for the price you pay. Service could be better as we walked to our room to find out we had to walk back to receptions for the WiFi password.

Review:   In my opinion Bay Plaza Hotel is good for the travelers who want to spend few days in Wellington. After visiting the historic places and views of the city, this Hotel is nice to relax at night.
