Modern accommodation conveniently located close to the motorway. Excellent value for money. Great helpful staff who provide a fantastic service. I left some items in the room. Staff very helpful in having them returned. Highly recommend.

We stayed at Aotea Lodge for 2 nights last week. Upon arrival, we waited in line for around 10 minutes (behind another waiting customer,) whilst a phone call was taken and the man in the office bickered with someone on the phone. I found this behaviour unprofessional. Once I was at the counter, my booking couldn't be found (I had... More

Our stay at Aotea Lodge was a frustrating and disappointing experience! There was confusion about our booking and although we had booked for 3 nights there was only a room for us for 2 nights. When we complained that there was a mistake the manager would not admit fault on their part even though I had a print out from... More

We booked a superior family suite for 2 nights. The shower had several hairs on the front and the splash guard along the shower edge was bright green with dirt. . The bathroom, for a family was grossly inadequate. It was so small you couldn't swing a cat in it. The Shower, basin and toilet all in a room the... More

We stayed at the Aotea Lodge last weekend as a group. Our room was double-booked for the last evening, and another couple in our group also had a double booking for their last night too. It was eventually sorted out in the end with the other booking transferred to another room. I don't know what would have happened if it... More

Stayed 17 nights here over the xmas, new year period visiting family and friends. We'd arrived just before xmas at our pre booked accommodation at the aotea motor camp to be told that they had just given our cabin away. Came here to the Aotea Lodge and were very relieved and grateful that they took us in at short notice.... More

My husband discovered this place when he stayed there while on a conference. This was my first visit. Just off the main road into Wellington, it is easy to get to yet not too far from the city itself. The motel overlooks Aotea Lagoon with its duck pond, children's' playground, miniature railway and walkway which encircles the lagoon. It is... More

We used this venue for a presentation and accommodation for a group who were then travelling on to Christchurch. The conference room was spacious and met the need of our group and it meant that the staff of Aotea Lodge were able to deal with the catering without interruption to us. Unfortunately as the room was upstairs we were just... More
