Very modern clean unit with very good sky TV and WiFi. Good central location. Was our second stay and would definitely return. Stayed in the new units. Very good bathroom and shower. Kitchen was more than adequate.

I stayed in a studio unit for work. Rooms are very spacious with plenty of room to relax. Lazy boy chairs. The desk space in the room was great too. Bathroom is large, water pressure is fantastic. Excellent cooking facilities. No road noise, unites are very quiet. TV is large! And a huge up is the My-sky recorder in the... More

Sadly we had a different experience to the other people who have reviewed this motel. We arrived at this motel in the late evening. As we were quite tired both of us had showers and went to sleep. In the morning when we wanted to shower again before breakfast we discovered only two towels had been given. So I went... More

We stayed here one night. Our room being one of the newer units was spacious, clean and very quiet. Unlike some motels we could not hear noise from the adjacent rooms or from those above. The bed was very comfortable and overall we had a pleasant stay. It was good value compared to some other motels where we have stayed... More

We decided to overnight in Wellington after coming from the South Island and not getting in till late afternoon. We booked via Fly Buys and although it was adequate and clean, we were put into one of the older units (#28). The bathroom fittings were very old and the shower pressure was almost non existant. My husband woke up during... More

My husband, son and I stayed early October in one of the older units. Had an old bach feel about the unit and it was adequate. We did not have a couch in the living area so it was either a hard dining chair or perch on the single bed......bit strange. We got good serivce at reception. Feel the motel... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and because we needed the extra bed decided to book the "older" room. I was a little surprised at the unit we were given, it does need abit of a upgrade. Whilst it was comfortable and clean, it was probably a little overpriced. Just the one small tv in the main room, none in... More

Four of us recently stayed a night at the Du Pont in Lower Hutt. The room was 2 bedroom, spacious and very clean. I prefer a TV in the bedroom which it didn't have, just the one in the lounge area which only had a 2 seater couch and a single bed to sit on. The service was pretty abrupt... More

We have stayed twice at this motel in less than 6 months. Room was very clean and simple, had everything we needed. Had two different units on both occasions and cannot fault the rooms. Handy to the shopping mall and cafes. Loved it and will definitely stay there again.
