This is not a caravan park but a parking for caravans. They have turned their parking area into the caravan park. There is no outdoor space, facilities are extremely limited (two toilets and 4 showers for 28 spaces), it is under the flight path, and the worse thing is how unfriendly the receptionist of the day was.l would never come...

After traveling for almost 5 hours we wanted something nice and comfortable. Firstly we had to drag all our luggage upstairs to our room, which was a pain. The kitchenette was small, and only a microwave available, which meant eating out. Beds were Ok, pillows were too soft. Wifi was available to buy, and you had to sit in foyer... More

This hotel is far from the city center. About a 10-15mins drive away. As you know, Wellington's traffic can get heavy during peak hours. We were given rooms on the second level of the motel as our family of 4 needed a bigger room. Our room had a loft, with 4 beds. The whole room is big enough for 6... More

We camped here for a night before going to the South Island. The guy who checked us in was friendly and helpful. The kitchen, laundry and shower facilities were small but clean and convenient. Our sleep was disturbed a little by people and campervans coming and going. I guess this was due to ferry crossing times and so no fault... More

Comfortable rooms, great restaurant food & exceptionally friendly staff. Conveniently situated & although a little noisy because of motorway, not bad enough to be of concern. Wifi to rooms would be an added bonus! Would have no hesitation in recommending this Motor Inn.

Drove from Coromandel, tired & hungry & wanted somewhere close to ferry terminal for early start. Food was good in restaurant, but got no sleep as Motel is high above Motorway and noise travels up. Would not stay again.

The rooms were large. The beds were comfortable. Had everything we needed. Shower wasn't that great. Poor power and there was a shampoo body wash dispenser which I found weird. I like bar soap not body wash. Price was reasonable. Accommodating with parking etc. Breakfast was amazing and a good price.

Found this place when looking around for some where to stay and it turned out to be great. After we left we found out we were members of the golden chain. Not to worry we had a great stay.The motel staff were very helpful with direction and places to go and see.

We stayed at a powered site. We originally stayed here for 1 night after getting off the ferry. It was very clean, only 2 showers/2 toilets which is a shame as it can get busy at peak times, but they are clean. Laundry and kitchen facilities are very good and very clean. We ate in the restaurant and it was... More
