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.

Stayed here for 5 nights this time. Have been here a few times prior and have always found the owners to be most helpful and pleasant. The rooms are like a small apartment with its own well appointed kitchen with all utensils, flat screen TV, large bathroom (shower only), and separate bedroom. The bed has electric blankets which are needed... More

Fantastic clean and modern rooms with the best beds! Everything you could possibly need. Dave and Nat are great hosts and more than happy to go out of their way. They can certainly recommend some great restaurants! Motor Inn is great location opposite hospital and just up the road from bus stop. Even not a bad walk into central city.... More

Everything we needed in close walking & driving proximity :) Had a lil concern about no locks on the bathroom doors, as a couple of us were caught out lol, but overall a very enjoyable stay. Realy nice, helpfull staff, would definitely recommend to anyone... More
