Checked out caravan sites in the greater Wellington area with disappointing results....until we found the Capital Gateway with powered sites available for caravans and campervans - a large sealed carpark behind the motel units is set up for this purpose. The Reception staff were friendly & helpful allocating us a convenient site for our large caravan+car. Very easy to find... More

Very clean and tidy but shower and basin need replacing, room service dinner was great, bed comfortable, but bit expensive really for what it is, would put it more in the $140 - $150 bracket than $175

Toyed with Poor vs Average but went with the latter as no hot food available for take-away on the day we stayed. Practically, we stayed here as convenient for the early start on ferry next day so we only needed a parking space, and I guess that's what we got so can't really complain. Easy enough to find but opportunistically... More

This Hotel was a bit hard to find mainly due to the location and the roads in Wellington. When we arrived we were greeted with a friendly smile and given our keys. The room was large with two bedrooms upstairs and a bed downstairs. The property looks like an old english cottage and is very pleasant to stay in. I... More

The title gives this motel its major attraction. Wellington itself is a great city and well worth exploring but, like us, most customers will be looking for a motel close to the ferry terminal. This one is, there's nothing wrong with it. All the usual amenities in a clean and pleasant environment. The restaurant was a tad expensive for the... More

A lovely clean motel. Well appointed and met all of our needs. If there was one criticism it was that the motel was not accessible to the city centre and as it was NYE we were hoping to get into the city. It was also a little noisy as it is near the motorway However, we had to be up... More

Our room was one bedroom plus studio and kitchen. A bit dated, but clean and tidy. We were on the first floor, and unfortunately it was very noisy from the motorway which passes below, the traffic was heavy morning trucks and cars, and because of the hill, we could hear a lot of engine noise. They need to put in... More

We paid $46/nt for 2 pp in Sept 2013 and it was the dearest we paid for a campervan site in NZ during our trip. However, this is Wellington and you are also paying for the convenient location. It was handy to the Interislander ferry and the facilities were clean & functional. You had to press a button to get... More

Stayed here for one night for business. I was travelling with a large group (20+) and the staff handled us very well. We were checked into our rooms efficiently by friendly staff. I was in a ground level room with a queen bed and kitchenette. Room was a good size and clean. A bit run down, but perfectly comfortable. Our... More

A common parking space with a power outlet next to it is not a campsite. $61 for the three of us in a campervan is not adequate to what we got. There is a small lawn with tables and benches next to the "campsite".
