Recently stayed here with my 83 year old mother. It was easily accessed off the motorway and the onsite restaurant made it easy for my mother who is unwell. As the restaurant is elevated the veiw from our table was lovely- watching the twinkling lights of the motorway. The food was surprising quite good - man size servings though! Our... More

We stayed here for one night mainly because it is close to the Interisland Ferry terminal and it was about the only family room we could find that wasn't booked out. Our room was very dated and well used - sure does need a make over. Value for money isn't good as I feel we payed top dollar for a... More

My friend and I recently stayed here for a night while driving through the country in our campervan. The motor home park was basically a parking lot and each spot equipped with power outlet. I like that it was located 5 min away from city center of wellington. There was a kitchen and sitting area with TV. Hot shower for... More

My wife and I went on a 2 week holiday to New Zealand, and when in Wellington, we stayed at this motel. It was quite far from the city. The place is a little run down, and because the rear is a camper park, we found it was a little noisy and also car parking space was quite difficult to... More

We were on stopover back from the South Island. Convenient from the ferry terminal but noisy motorway traffic and aircraft. Receptionist most unwelcoming and not helpful. Didn't mention it was a Kiwi park, we only noticed a flag through a window the other side of the building after paying. Went back but receptionist who refused our discount even though we... More

We stayed in our 6th berth camper here for our stop over in Wellington on the 2nd March. Basically this is a motel with a "campervan site" in the car park. Very tight spaces on the concrete. Very small facilities for number of vans/people. Only 1 toilet & 2 showers in each male/female block. Very small kitchen and dining area.... More

Have now stayed here several times on visits to NZ as it is so convenient for the ferry terminal. This time we actually had a meal in the restaurant and were not disappointed. The dining room is very pleasant and the food and service very good and reasonably priced. The rooms are clean and spacious and have everything needed for... More

Positives: Conveniently close to motorway and easy to get into Wellington. Not too noisy. Owners are very helpful and the Christmas dinner was exceptional. Comfortable beds and linen, cosy bar area. Friendly atmosphere. Negatives: in a gap in mountains and so no views of city. Feels isolated. Worn out cement paths outside rooms with bird droppings and flaky paint. 4... More

We stayed overnight with motorhome before early morning ferry. Yes its a car park but suited our need. Spaces are wide enough for the biggest motorhome with additional hatched off area of 1m between every two spaces. Long vehicles may have some difficulty with turning spaces, depending on which site you are allocated. Facilities were more than adequate for users... More

Stayed here for the night in a motorhome as we were getting the ferry the following day and we wanted to be close to Wellington. Very disappointed with the camping area. Pretty much a motorway service station aesthetic - white lines painted on the Tarmac with 1m gaps between them. A few grass strips or even the odd plant in... More
