This motel is handy to the airport. Close to shops and restaurants in Kilbbirnie. It was clean and tidy though somewhat dated. The bed was comfortable and the heating sufficient. This motel is not flash, it doesn't have a lot of the extras you might get in a newer place, but it doesn't have a big cost either. I spent... More

This motel was handy for us, being not far to the Inter Island ferry terminal where we were heading in the morning. It would also have been easy to get to the airport from here. The room was clean and tidy as was the private bathroom and well equipped kitchen area. The room had a dining table with chairs and... More

I stayed at the Motel and had no complaints from the minute I arrived until the time I left. The price was great, the bed was so comfortable and the rooms were quiet and tidy. The shower had good pressure and there was everything there that you could need. Free parking outside and close to all the shops. I would... More

For Wifi, charged $10 but couldn't get the reception on the 3 devices we had. Tried all areas in the studio unit but no luck. Leaky Fridge, Highly Compact Unit for 3. Single Unit stove not working properly too. No decent size microwave bowls too. Good side is gave 10% discount on arrival. Still $115 for 3 people very expensive... More

The main feature of this motel is that it is close to the airport - very handy if you arrive late or leave early. The layout of the unit we had was a bit strange, but it had everything we needed and it was clean. The bed was a bit hard and the TV difficult to see except from the... More

I would really like to recommend this motel. The service is second to none. I arrived in Wellington later in the day & the motel proprietor picked me up from the airport. My room was very comfortable and clean, and they went out of their way to help me. The manager even went out of his way to book me... More

Thanks for your review about our motel. Totally agree with your comments "Good value for money", as our rate is generally the lowest in Wellington city. Our ground floor units have bigger kitchen areas with cook tops for those who wants to enjoy their own cooking while they stay here, and our first-floor units have basic kitchennetts with microwave, toaster...
