Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Very cheap rate, & you get what you pay for! Location in city is great, but as others have said, it’s in need of a good do-up: double-glazing, new bathrooms, sound proofing between rooms etc! Having said that, it was clean, and Receptionist was cheerful and helpful. And don’t do what I did and use the coffee sachets – treat yourself to a decent Welly coffee! We had a breakfast included. Again, staff were lovely, plenty of food. I’m guessing the advertised on-site parking is always taken - we were directed immediately to the nearby parking building. It is right next door, but it’s not secure and is pretty seedy as you’d expect. But, car was still there and unscathed in the morning. You can leave it there for 24 hours from check in, so handy if you want to wander Welly after checking out. It’s full of city parkers during the day so seemed safe, & we did see a security guy doing a drive-through. Summary: cheap & cheerful, great location, but not the most glam joint you’ll ever stay at.

FILTHY.. throughout.. broken mirror in bedroom, held together with tape. Mildew on the windows, shower and basically throughout the bathroom. Even the room fan is full of dust, and rattles. The view is great ( city views on the web site) Yep, a dirty grey wall 4mtrs away. NO SECURE PARKING AVAILABLE ON SITE… unlike that stated on the web site. Parking available in the car park next door.. comes complete with bongs and needles.. and only $35 for 24 hrs. I hope our car is still there tomorrow.. Do NOT believe anything on the website… it appears to be out of date..eg. Top of the page states cash is fine.. further day… NO CASH, Don’t use the desk in room 301, it’s broken. We have stayed at Mercure hotels for many years but this one is disgusting. Never again. Bad news, we’re here for another night

Stayed in this hotel for two nights as part of my tour of NZ. On arrival it appeared to be 'tired' and facilities were limited. The breakfast was exceptionally poor quality with frozen fruit, cold 'hot' offerings, limited other food and only filter coffee available. I asked for 2 poached eggs and waited 25 mins for this. My bedroom (410) was shabby and run down and had no double glazing. As it overlooked the very busy main road junction outside it was incredibly noisy. There was a bar with an outside terrace across the road which was very busy and this noise penetrated into my room. On the saturday night my fit bit recorded that I had 2hrs 36 mins sleep. All in all I would not recommend this hotel to anyone who is a light sleeper and if you are ask for a room not facing out onto the main road. I also used the laundry facilities. A tiny room under the hotel in the car park....very shabby.

Mercure is considered a mid-tier chain, but I would rate this hotel average at best, and probably more high-end budget than mid-tier. Still, at a competitive rate per night, it is a good choice for budget-minded travelers who are looking for basic accommodations in a good location. Room was somewhat small but adequate and clean. Basic furnishings including a comfortable bed, and desktop with chair. No power outlets anywhere near the desk. Fortunately I travel with a long extension cord, and this was needed in order to power my laptop computer, which I use a lot when traveling. Wi-fil connection was spotty. Service at reception was cordial and efficient. Elevator requires room key in order to be able to access guest floors providing an extra level of guest security. Location is convenient to shopping, restaurants, most of the CBD, and is within reasonable walking distance of Lambton Quay. Close to many bus route and the Airport Express bus.

Stayed here for 2 nights, top floor room - well appointed. Limited choice of tea and coffee and no biscuits 😞. Lucky I brought some ftom our previous stay. Very handy, easy walking distance from good bars in Cuba Street and upmarket restaurants towards Lambton Quay.

Difficult to get to via car. Parking is terrible. Hotel hallways and rooms very old. Outdated. We had a view of a car park and a dumpster. Walls thin, heard people talking and laughing all night, car alarm went off every 20 mins to the early hours of the morning. Shower so old and shower head had no pressure. No tissues available, windows wouldn't open or close properly. Bed was uncomfortable. Nothing in the bar fridge. Curtains didn't close so the light was coming through the window all night. Didn't matter because we couldn't sleep anyway. 🤣

Get there to be told we are at their sister accommodation which has no restaurant/bar … which was Our big reason for choosing this place! Dirty bedding, curtains hanging off railings. Cupboard doors dirty. Masking tape still on the walls. Obviously by the bad reviews the management don’t care as haven’t done anything to make things better .

The price was cheap, and the room was basic. Small, dark furniture, high window with limited natural light. Comfortable bed. So felt a bit hemmed in. Resteraunt only does breakfast at $35 for full buffet. The location was fabulous short walk to Cuba street, eating and shopping district. If you wanna a cheap room for a holiday, and plan only to stay for a sleep this is ok. Car parking was for $35 a night, wgiches more than the car hire! But there is NO off street paring-free-all metered. Staff were fabulous.

We stayed at this hotel when visiting Wellington. (Rm705) The staff were friendly and helpful. The foyer and corridors looked tired and in need of refurbishment. We stayed on the top floor overlooking a side street. The room was clean well appointed and of a good size. The beds were comfortable and the shower had a good pressure. Car parking was limited and a tight squeeze to get in. We could have done with double glazing windows as we did have some street noise from rowdy people. The restaurant at the hotel needed to display More Gluten Free Options as this prevented us eating there. Al's Top Tips Ask for a room not over looking Willis Street. Take a good umbrella / waterproof clothing as it rains alot here and can be quite windy.

I stayed here at the beginning of February and had a good stay in a room that was similar to those on the website. However, this time it was so disappointing and will not stay here again, nor recommend it to anyone. The first thing was having to wait for a Receptionist to appear at the desk so that I could book in. She did not give any information regarding how to use the lift, nor where to eat or breakfast timings. I was told by email that I was to have an accessible room and unlike my first visit, this was a far smaller room and there was no space for the comfy chair seen in the publicity photos. The room was only big enough to have the bed and two bedside tables. A table and upright chair and suitcase holder. To get to one side of the bed you had to fight with the wardrobe and drawers. Lighting was very dim. You could not have had a wheelchair in the room. The bathroom had a shower with a small lip which was fine, however once in the shower there was no body wash nor shampoo and the polystyrene ceiling tiles were showing signs of mould. Only one hand towel, two small bath towels, no bath sheets. There was no grab rail to be able to hold on to. Any toiletry accessories were noticeable by their absence. You would expect the usual, ie shower cap, sewing kit, shoe cleaner and tissues. Overall impression was that management did not care about the cleanliness or comfort in the bathroom. The pillows were very thin and I had to use the cushions to get a little depth. Tea and coffee facilities were limited to one mug of tea and there was a tea towel in the drawer which suggested I should do my own washing up. The fridge was not working and so the milk was warm. There was no information booklet, so guess work was used for the TV. There was no indication of breakfast times, nor any helpful information of where to eat. No complimentary paper and pen. There was no “Do not disturb” sign to be used. Walls were very thin and you could hear conversations in the next room. The next morning I had to ring Reception to find out breakfast times and where to eat it. I was told it was in the Staten – a bar on the side of the hotel. You walked into the Staten and there is no immediate sign of where the breakfast is. No one on hand to help, it was another guest who told me where it was. I did not have breakfast there last time so it was new to me. The breakfast area had no indication of whether the food was gluten free, dairy free etc. I picked up my plate to get hot food only to find that all the plates for the hot food were cold and the glasses for the cold juice were warm. The eggs were clearly powdered as you could see some of the powder. None of the standing dishes on the hot plate were marked and clearly had been around for some time (not fresh). I asked for a taxi to be called, which never came and I had to hail one myself outside. Not a good look for a hotel in the centre of the Country’s capitol, especially when trying to encourage people back after the pandemic
