Conveniently close to public transport and a dairy. Very friendly and helpful owners who offered to go the extra mile and drive 20 mins to collect me when I was stranded due to flooding. Will stay again when I return on business.

We booked this motel as it was close to Te Marua Speedway track. We had a one bedroom unit for our stay and found it very clean and comfortable. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. We had two vehicles (one with trailer and stockcar) and there was plenty of parking. Good sized kitchen, full size fridge and hob... More

Enjoyed our little unit and the privacy. Our bed was warm and linen sheets were crispy white. We enjoyed sky TV but wish there was more toliet paper, not quarter. Great hosts. Our stay was short but we had a awsome sleep.

The room was clean and well kept. the staff were always eager to please. Overall the room was a little small for us BUT that's just personal preference. The kitchen was excellent with a full sized fridge, hob and oven.

Having worked at Trentham many years ago I knew a little about this motel and it's situation suited my wife and I perfectly for the four days spent in the Wellington region with access to main roads to West Coast, Lower and Upper Hutt, walkways, etc. However, when we arrived we were assigned cabin #10 - one of those that...

We only stayed for one night to be able to attend my old Primary School Re-union. Very comfortable bed, very quiet and the owner is busy painting the place piece by piece. Perfectly adequate at a reasonable price. I would recommend it as handy to many places of interest.

Room was old, felt dark and damp and outdated. Manager was extremely rude and did not have a nice manner at all. Would not recommend this place, other nicer places for same price to stay in Upper Hutt.

While we appreciate constructive reviews, we will not accept malicious statements which are completely unfounded. This guest who has chosen not to communicate with us, but rather anonymously write untrue statements about our motel some 4 weeks after their stay - did you not have the courage to speak to us direct? NONE of our units are dark or damp.... More

If you look at my profile you will see I am quite critical on where I stay as I travel for work all the time. When a colleague booked me at this motel and I pre read some of the reviews on here I was a tad nervous. But I can't fault a thing. From the warm welcome from both... More
