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

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.

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.
