Clean room, nothing fancy: a bed, a bathroom with bottomless warm shower, kitchenette, complimentary tea and coffe. Everything you need for just one night. Best was the location convenient across the hospital which was the most important factor for me.

Not only close to hospital, but the rooms are nice, and immaculately clean, large tiled bathroom, really awesome pressure shower, comfy bed...lovely service. Countdown supermarket is just down the road. Was able to park car at motel.

Stayed here over a weekend when on a conference next to the hospital; I was upgraded from a Queen studio to a one bedroom, where the bedroom was upstairs with the bathroom. I don't always sleep well in a city as live rurally but no problem here. Excellent friendly service.

This motor lodge is directly opposite Wellington hospital which is why I stayed here. This is not a 5 star hotel nor does it pretend to be. The rooms are comfortable, tidy and clean. Cooking facilities (a stove top, but no stove) are available and include a microwave plus basic cooking equipment. Staff are very obliging.

Ascot Motor Lodge is a very convenient place to stay overnight in Wellington. Easy to locate with good public transport access to Wellington city-centre. Rooms are quite good, although the Wellington main Hospital is across the road we experienced no disturbance. Friendly service, very helpful in planning your way into town.

I had to stay in wellington when a family member was in wellington hospital. The hotel across the street was very nice. The staff are friendly, i could do cooking (it had a stove top and not just a microwave), yay for not have to share a kitchen/bathroom/tv etc, and it was handy to be literally across the street at...

Very close proximity to hospital (literally across the road!) and short walk to Newtown supermarket & restaurants. City centre and airport are also both close by car/bus. Very pleased with 1 bedroom apartment: while not fancy, clean and functional and just what we needed. TV reception wasn't the best but this only affected some channels; not really a concern.

My daughter and I had come to Wellington to see the Wiggles concert and hadn't realised that the All Blacks were playing the same day. We were lucky enough to get a room here at Ascot Motor Lodge with undercover parking. The hosts were very helpful with any questions we had, and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were... More

I recently stayed here on a work trip to Wellington Hospital. Location was great for anyone needing to go to the hospital. It was across the road so you can also get free parking! I walked up the street and had Indian takeaway for dinner, but there were a few options within walking distance.The room was compact, but perfectly ok... More
