A cheap stay with average service. Good location as it is right beside the supermarket. Very squishy beds. Small bathroom with uncomfortable shower that has weak power! The fact that the shower head was attached to the wall was very very annoying! Not much parking.

The motel is tidy and clean, very good location, easy to go to the wellington zoo and city center. No hair dryer in the room but I asked reception, they provided it to me, I even borrowed a rice cooker and an iron from them. The young couple are the new owners of this motel, they are friendly and helpful.... More

Had I have driven to Wellington instead of flown, I would have found better including cleaner accommodation lying underneath my car. (which has multiple oil leaks) The cleanliness of the bedding was questionable, not to mention the unit in general which is suitable for dogs only, however even a dog with a blocked nose would I'm sure turn and run...

This is the worst motel I have ever been in. When we arrived we were assaulted in the reception area by the most disgusting stench of rotting seaweed and fish entrails. The owner was unshaven and rude. Because of the foul smell we asked to see the room before paying for it but he refused, saying we had to pay... More

We chose this motel as it was near our family's house, but that was its only redeeming feature. On arrival we were offered an opened half filled 1L container which the owner said was 'their milk' but we could have it! We did not take it for obvious reasons. Although the website states non-smoking everywhere, the tenants above us were... More

I booked this motel as I needed to stay overnight for an appointment early the next day. Online it looked satisfactory, but I did not read up on Tripadvisor unfortunately, that would have saved me lots of trouble. I booked online filling in all the details, yet I was rung up and asked what time I would be arriving. When... More

We were here because a family member was admitted to ICU Wellington hospital. Parking sucked! I couldn't get out of my car in the space she told me to park in. It was so narrow! Service - one towel per room?! Even though she knew I booked the room for 3 people. I had to justify why I needed more... More

i have visited quite a few motels, but was appalled by the initial service of this motel. Firstly, a smelly room was given despite other vacant rooms being available and the facilities were not updated. The door for the toilets was so "not private" that any other member (sharing with you, eg, family) could just have access to it as... More

I stayed here recently with my partner. We found the owners very rude and difficult to deal with. The rooms were cold and noisy at night and seemed to lack the basics. The parking was impossible and we also parked on the street overnight. We won't be staying here again.

We had unit 8 upstairs. There was no hair dryer in the room, no desert spoons and not a lot of water coming out of the shower. We mentioned the shower to the owner twice. she didn't seem to worried about it.
