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.

Booked here as wanted to be close to hospital and it is! The room was adequate; the parking is impossible and I ended up parking on the road overnight. As I have read in another review, the parking is very narrow and barely allows room for the driver to get in and out of the car. I would not stay... More

The only good thing about this motel is its location 3 minutes from the Wellington hospital. Rooms are old and outdated shabby furnishings and decor. 1 bedroom for 4 people very cramped and there were only 3 of us. Nothing about this motel appealed and is overpriced in comparison to other motels in close proximity

We stayed here for two nights after the recent storm when we were left without any power. The owners were very helpful and cannot fault them, thank you The property itself is a dated motel but it has everything you need for a short stay. The road it is on is pretty noisy and we were woken both nights by... More

We had a one bedroom room which felt very cramped, barely room to sit round the table and a tiny bathroom. The layout wasn't ideal as you have to go through the bedroom to get to the bathroom. In desperate need of renovation and traffic noise was quite bad. It was, however, nice and clean!

We stayed here while my father was in Wellington Hospital. Location was perfect, within walking distance, but that was the only good thing really. This place is very outdated and in serious need of a makeover. The studio rooms are very small, with the double bed (too small, and too soft) being only one metre from a noisy fridge. The... More

This was the worst motel we stayed in in New Zealand. Parking was very difficult. we were in a ground floor unit and walls and ceiling seemed paper thin so there was a lot of noise from other guests. Room was clean but the smell of spicy cooking was all around. My tablet would not connect to the internet and... More

We stayed at this motel for only one night on 14 March 2013 and how thankful we are that it was only for one night. The motel is in serious need of a make over. The room was matchbox size with two beds in the lounge and a double bed in the bedroom. The bathroom was also very tiny. We... More
