POSITIVE: • Friendly motel manager • Size of the room • Comfortable bed • Clean bathroom • Good to have a balcony (even though we didn't have time to enjoy it) • Location NEGATIVE: • Milk in a jug instead of a closed container (not the healthiest option as can't see use by date) • Charged to my credit card...

We booked AAA Mana Motel for two people but, at the last minute, our son decided to stay the night as well. When checking in, we asked if it was a problem to accommodate three instead of two people. Without any hesitation, we were provided with a portable bed for our son and not charged any extra cost. Excellent, friendly... More

I stayed in a standard studio on the ground floor. The room was older but nicely furnished and the bathroom was recently renovated. The unit contained everything I needed and had sliding door to the garden. The hosts were extremely friendly and helpful. The only negatives were the tight carparks, made harder to get into if the neighbouring cars are... More

We had an unexpected delay in Wellington, and stayed the night here. Great, very helpful staff, large rooms with good facilities, a very comfortable nights rest. Not the flashed in the book, but clean and well presented. Staff were willing to hold the room for the next night if need be. Great advice regarding local food outlets. Top value for... More

AAA Mana Motel has lovely spacious rooms, with everything you could possibly need and a superbly comfortable bed!! Well serviced by wonderfully friendly staff. Lovely private balcony and very peaceful especially considering the motel was fully booked with many staying that were attending dog shows. Great situation with shops within easy walking distance.

It is not fancy and the rooms are a little dated but, that said, this a very well situated motel which is close to the railway station and motorway. Nice being able to walk down the road to the shops and handy to the park. The service is fantastic and Ross and Megan cannot do enough for you.

I've stayed here quite a few times. It is not fancy and the rooms are a little dated but, that said, this a very well situated motel which is close to the railway station and motorway. There is high speed wireless internet for a small additional cost. There is an indoor pool which is not really warm enough to swim... More

Thank you for your detailed and thoughtful review. It is much appreciated. We are a 3 star plus property and claim to be nothing more. As a long term corporate stay this Government agency dictated a competitively priced nightly rate, which is great to see, rather than a more costly 5 star property previously utilised. Our indoor pool is in... More

AAA Mana Motel was an absolutely wonderful place to stay. The unit was spacious with everything you need in it. The bed was very comfortable and nice and warm to sleep in, and the outdoor area was perfect for the dog. For those staying for Dog Shows, its only 10 minute drive to NZKC grounds. Ross and Megan are very... More
