A new name and upgraded!! Looking fresh and clean with a very comfortable bed. Hosts are enthusiastic about their new venture and full of helpful information. A hop skip and jump from the main street of Richmond and all it has to offer. Will make this my permanent stop on every visit.

I checked in as a break away from the noise and busy streets of Wellington for the weekend. I found while cafes etc were only down the road I wanted to have time inside (weather wasnt the greatest) but the breakfast was alittle simple and could have had more options. However the power of the shower was awesome and the... More

I've just returned from a work trip to Richmond, where I was put up at the Gladstone Motel. It was an enjoyable stay. Friendly hosts. Clean, warm, tidy, modern facilities. Comfortable bed! Nice shoer! Free (though limited) WiFi. Easy walking distance to the shops, restaurants and cafés, and kids playgrounds. If I was to suggest one improvement it would only... More

Thanks for your comments which are appreciated. Regarding the WiFi; we allow 100Mb free as an introduction. This is normally more than enough for guests to check E-Mail, web browsing, Facebook etc. However if you require more, you only have to ask. The only reason we limit it is to discourage illegal downloads of Movies, Music etc (Large files) for... More

We found the people friendly and helpful. With staff that were willing to go the extra mile to accommodate our needs. They talked to us about activities and places to go. The rooms were very clean and tidy

We travelled with another couple and stayed for 2 nights in adjacent studio units 805 and 6. On arrival we found the units ready for occupation although we arrived early, no problem with booking in and found unit clean and tidy with good appointments. Hook was available for skylight and sky sport enabled us to watch AB's beat England in... More

We stayed in this motel for 2 x nights last weekend (2 x adults & 1 toddler) and stayed in the 2 bedroom unit. It was clean and tidy with all the usual conveniences you would expect. The only draw back was that you could hear the neighbours quite clearly (not fun at 5.30am) getting ready to start their day... More

Thanks for your response. Our ground floor units all have double thickness insulation to eliminate noise and are otherwise extremely quiet. However, the unit you were in has an interconnecting door so it can also be used by the next unit. Although these doors are solid and very good at sound proofing they are not totally sound-proof if you have... More

Apartments are very well appointed, best for 2 rather than more...if you have more people book the Destiny motels 1 and 2 bedroom suites. the studios... More

We have stayed at this very comfortable motel on 3 occasions over the last 6 years. The cleanliness and comfort of the rooms cannot be faulted and the owners are always available to help with any enquiries. Good size rooms come with large TV, DVD and surround sound. Also wireless internet is available - the first 10MBs free but you... More

Thanks for your comments which we always appreciate. We have since canvassed our guests regarding Sky TV channels and as a result have added extra Sports channels so the cricket should be available in future. We have also switched over to all digital in anticipation of the digital cutover next year. Regarding Internet access. We have increased our free allowance... More

My wife and I stayed here last year, and it was a wonderful surprise. We thought it would be your run of the mill motel, but it was actually really nice. The rooms were well appointed and the staff freindly. Would definately stay there again. The only drawback were that the rooms were small, but they made up for that... More
