Clean rooms and great location if you have someone in hospital. Situated just across the road from the hospital. Also very close to Te Papa and other amenities. I have no hesitation in recommending this motel.

Stayed one night and was completely amazed by how friendly the staff were and how comfortable the room was. Comfort was really important for us as our son was in hospital. It was nice to retire to a clean, warm, and comfortable room after being at the hospital. The quality of the room we were in was definitely above that... More

A week ago I visited my Mother in Wellington hospital and had to stay over night. And so I booked one night at Ascot using their online booking system. It's in a great location for the hospital, with a few minutes walk across the road and you are there (you spend most of the time waiting for the pedestrian lights... More

I booked this motel in advance for three nights and really wish I hadn't! On arrival at reception the lady was very polite and cheerful. When I got to my room and was about to sit down, I noticed two brown, textured smears on the bedspread. On close inspection this looked a lot like poo. It was kind of gross.... More

Friendly greeting. The room was modern. Everything that you need. This hotel is opposite the hospital. It is close by a supermarket and great restaurants are close by. I definitely would choose this hospital again if in Wellington.

If you have a loved one or relly in Wellington Hospital and you want to be within easy walking distance this is the place. We needed a downstairs unit and got one, but probably being the first built they are getting old and while clean and tidy just ok for the money. It did have double glazing which was a... More

Another great stay at the Ascot. This time we had a two bedroom family apartment. Great to have 2 bathrooms and 2 TV's. Bus stop outside, dairy next door and Countdown 5 minutes down the road. Right opposite the hospital but noise was no problem. Clean rooms, lovely owners.

My husband was in hospital for 2 weeks. I knew no one and had no relatives living in Wellington. Ascot Motor Lodge was a life saver for me, so convenient being right across the road from the hospital. Room was comfortable, able to cook a meal, great bathroom facility and in walking distance of the supermarket plus good car parking.... More
