I haven't stayed here for many years. But was pleased when I arrived that it is still the same peaceful location. There was a slight glitch with my room when I arrived late on a Friday night. But August, put it right ASAP and I really appreciated that. My room had a separate kitchen and dinning area and then a... More

My family including two children under four were provided with a unit that was musty, dated and right on top of the motorway. It was if nobody had stayed in the unit since the 1970's. All this despite booking almost a year in advance. As the proprietor would not provide us with an alternative unit, we chose not to stay.... More

Concur with many other comments re ease of access to motorway etc. Yes 2 bed units are a time warp, they are older and dated but the rooms are huge (18 and 19), beds are very comfortable, rooms are warm, they are quiet, facilities do the job well. Cannot fault cleanliness, staff always helpful and... More

With two of our children living in Wellington in recent years this motel has been a convenient base for visiting them. Even better has been it’s proximity to the motorway, giving fast, easy access into the city, the ferry terminals, the Hutt Valley and the highway north when we headed home. It has also been a regular overnight stopover on... More

The Glen Alton Motel is situated well away from the centre of Wellington. It is in a very busy area, but located in a quiet cul-de-sac so noise was not a problem. There is nothing wrong with the motel, but nothing particularly memorable either. As a place to spend a night it does the job.

Great communication for the actual booking on line, made it very clear on the type of room we needed, what a shock when we arrived, only interested in payment up front ( no wonder) we would have left otherwise. It was ok as far as cleanliness goes until we opened a draw to use the utensils....filthy, we ended up buying... More
