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Room was old, felt dark and damp and outdated.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

Stayed one night for work. Carpets in Unit 14 are in DESPERATE need of a clean!! Trying to strategically place an old mat over the grubbiest of many carpet stains is not cool. Rug doctor wouldnt go amiss. Although the gentlemen I dealt with during my stay were pleasant, personal and professional presentation would do wonders for first impressions. It... More

Shame this guest did not come and talk to us about the unit. We only had one unit left for this particular day (all other units full) so only able to offer this one. Yes we are aware of the problem with the carpet, but rug doctor will not work as a previous guest spilt a tin of varnish on... More

The room we had was a surprise. The units have been renovated inside but still look like an old block motel as you drive up. Roomy unit. Great bathroom, good bed. Heat pump. Quiet. 56 Sky channels if you want them. Owners very helpful. Offered to drive us to our function if it was raining.

Thank you for your review, as you mentioned, we are trying to refurbish all of our units as quickly as possible and when it stops raining we will be able to finish painting the outsides of the units. Glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again soon. More

This was the second year in a row we have stayed at this motel, while at Trentham for the races. Good service, clean unit, delicious breakfast, handy to everything we wanted to go to. We will go back again.

We appreciate the motel is going through an upgrade but our room was an older one. Terrible beds, dated rooms. Booked by our employer, but I wouldn't go back I don't think, not unless you absolutely had to be in the Trentham area. We were actually close to going to another place after the first night butput up with it.... More

Unfortunately this is the problem when others/employers book accommodation and ask for the cheaper room. If we’d been advised of any issue during the week long stay then we could’ve rectified it at the time rather than hearing about it after departure which leaves unable to help. If we’d had known of any issues during the week long stay then... More
