I cannot rate this enough. Just a short walk from the station. Huge, excellently equipped rooms. Fantastic bar and restaurant downstairs. Great beers. Great food. Friendly banter from the locals. Comfortable. Relaxing. But most of all the welcome and service from the owners was more than expected, a lovely couple. I'll certainly be staying here again.

We have stayed here twice, each time on our way to the Wellington ferry for an early sailing. The rooms are great, roomy and well equipped. The restaurant is casual and friendly. This seems typical of an owner operated business where you get excellent service with good value. Even though the railway line is adjacent I have never been woken... More

I stopped in this motel because of its position not too far from the city of Wellington from which, the next morning, once dropped off my rented car at the airport, I had to proceed by plane to the South Island. I was positively impressed by the location, the very, very spacious rooms and their comfort. Yes, the frequent trains... More

Have now stayed at Finns on six occasions for two to three nights while visiting family nearby, and we keep going back when in the area due to the lovely comfortable, clean well equipped rooms and friendly service- nothing is too much trouble. The restaurant downstairs is a great place to eat when in Paekakariki.

We were on a Steam Incorporated steam train excursion from Paekakariki to Wanganui & stayed 2 nights (in room 6) at Finns. We were 'gobsmacked' at the size of room - easily twice as big as most regular rooms. Superbly fitted out with top hotel standard bathroom fittings - Complete with top of the range spa bath. Unfortunately was not... More

What a great place to stay at. Easy to find and express check in with no problems. We upgraded to a superior room. Well worth the extra cost. Also had a view out over the road to the beach shops and cafes. And a view over the railway road crossing so you could see the trains coming to and from... More

Best service and the food exceeded our expectations, well worth the visit! Fantastic bar staff especially the gorgeous tall blonde with glasses. The menu was well balanced with good options for the kids and the tuatara beer on tap was a hit! Well done team!
