we ate dinner at Finn's after a long trip from Auckland, and it was delicious, reasonably priced and a block away from the beach, where e enjoyed a lovely swim after dinner! Highly recommended for the food and location and service!

We were looking for an overnight stop before catching the ferry to South Island so arrived here by accident. This proved to be a pleasant surprise. Rooms were newly fitted out, large and spacious, ensuit was well equipped with a large spar type bath. There was a good sized balcony to the room where you could sit out. At $135... More

Well placed just to the North of Wellington, Finns Paekakariki is a great stop off for a night or two before catching the ferry or indeed on your return. We were running late and when we arrived the owners were most kind and hospitable organising fish and chips for us although the kitchen had closed. The rooms were excellent, spacious... More

Staff were very good, friendly and helpful. Room was clean and probably the best bed we have slept in at a hotel/motel. Only things i could suggest to enhance the stay would be a better free wifi system (only 50mb) and a larger TV otherwise could not fault the place.

Great location in the centre of the Paekakariki village. The room was large, light and clean with a spa bath and deck overlooking the main street. Really wasn't expecting it to be so nice but the hotel is fairly new and though the rooms are above the pub noise is no issue. We had a group of friends all staying... More

While we have never stayed in the Motel we have been here many times to enjoy the restaurant/bar/cinema. We love the relaxed, friendly atmosphere here and the wonderful food, whether you just want a snack or a proper meal, drinks, cinema and if you are inclined, the option to play the pokies. In Summer, it's wonderful to sit in the... More

The food came quickly and was nicely presented. For the most part it was tasty and well cooked. but steak was a bit over... More
