If you are staying in Levin you will find that most of the motels are next to the railway track and SH1 and it's very noisy. So you will appreciate the Welcome Inn as it's up a long drive on the other side of the highway so it's quiet. The hosts are very friendly and helpful and the rooms are... More

Stayed for one night in a very clean and comfortable studio unit with kitchenette. Very quiet location set back from the main road but just a short walk to the town center. Very nice host. Good internet. Excellent value.

I stayed at this motel between Christmas and New Years (2014). The beds and cabins were really comfortable (recently refurbished I believe), well equipped and quite spacious too. I had very peaceful sleeps for every night I stayed. It was also in a great location, just off the main road, so easily accessible but due to being set back a... More

I had the pleasure of staying in a completed refurbished one room unit for an extended time while on business. The unit was well presented, had modern fixtures and there was no road noise. Proprietors were welcoming and friendly. Would definitely recommend for business travellers as it was well priced and easy walk to all the local amenities.

Stayed two nights, heading to South Island for holiday and then again on return journey. Super quiet, Super warm, Super clean, Super comfortable, Super price. What more could a tired traveler require. Thanks.

I had the task of finding accommodation for five couples over Labour Weekend. We chose Welcome Inn and were very pleased with our choice. The things I look for in a motel are comfortableness of the bed and quiet surroundings to ensure a good night's sleep. Welcome Inn exceeded in these matters. The beds are high quality with a deep...

We stayed at the end of a long drive and not wanting to face Wellington until the next day. We had a very friendly welcome and were shown to a cosy cabin that warmed up quickly. Its not the newest but it was clean and comfortable with the bed in a separate room. Recommended.
