I have spent three weeks at Southgate Motor Inn at Newtown, Wellington and rate my overall experience very highly. Natalie and Dave are kind and friendly hosts. The atmosphere is warm and relaxed. The location is convenient to public transport into the city centre. The rooms are spacious, well appointed and maintained and extremely comfortable. The bathroom is large. I... More

This is an ideal place to stay if you need to be close to Wellington hospital as we did this week. Natalie was brilliant, clearly accustomed to dealing with families of patients. Could not fault the service from her, dealing with different groups arriving and the various necessary arrangements. The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable and have great beds... More

I have just spent the Easter weekend at the southgate motels in Wellington so I could be close to my seriously ill partner. The motel was beautifully presented and I slept very well in very comfortable beds. The atmosphere is very relaxed and quiet. And I would totally recommend this motel to everyone

This motel is located in a central position handy to the bus system, airport, the downtown area and the hospital. Has excellent well appointed spacious units with a good kitchen. I would stay here again. Good value for the price.

My stay at Southgate was unfortunately not a planned holiday but a second home for two weeks while I visited my mother in Wellington Hospital across the road. It was a very sad time but the managers Natalie and David were wonderfully supportive and friendly and made it that little less stressful than it could have been. The room was... More

We would have settled in without complaints had the power supply didn't give way. Six black-outs within an hour due to the fact the unit couldn't take the power load of 2 portable heaters + a kettle. It was a cold evening, unit had no central heating system, had to put on 2 portable heaters. To avoid black-outs, we needed... More

I stayed 3 nights to be with m daughter who was in Wellington Hospital. It only took me a couple of mins to walk between motel and hospital, which was great. Rooms were good size, clean, great amenities and very helpful staff. Would certainly stay there again.
