My two adult girls and I stayed for 7 nights. We found the motel clean and comfortable. While the motel is on a busy road the units are surprisingly quiet. The manager was helpful when asked for assistance. Parking was available the manager told us where we could park if all parks were full and even helped us park our... More

My husband & I run a machine importing business & travel a lot. We stayed at this Motel for one night for the first time. We went into the office where we received a chilling welcome. No smile with an attitude of not being bothered. Handed the key to our room & pointed through the window where the room was... More

This motel was clean and comfortable but had minimal facilities. There was a bench to make coffee or tea on, but no sink and only a microwave. The staff were friendly on check in. The motel is in a noisy location, but there were also major road works in the area at the time we stayed. Good for a short... More

We stayed here three nights as a couple with no car with the intention of having two full days to explore the capital. The motel is very clean, very well equipped and a helpful and accommodating welcome awaits the visitor. There were two areas where this was not ideal. First the motel is very near a very busy and very... More

Spacious and clean units which were serviced daily., comfortable beds. Even though the motel is situated on a busy road there is no road noise from inside the units. Easy access to wi-fi. Within walking distance of downtown shops, cafes, restaurants etc. Helpful and friendly hosts. I would certainly stay again on any future visits to Wellington.

We booked Marksman Motor Inn as it was close to our venue. Im sure I had booked a two bedroom unit, but had been allocated a one bedroom. There was Me, My wife and our two kids, so a two bedroom would have been perfect. Unfortunatly we had to squeeze the porta cot into a little alcove in the Main... More

Great location, helpful hosts, nice room. Only slight downer was the cold tap in our bathroom was almost impossible to turn on, and only came out as a trickle at best... Bed was super comfy, had a great sleep, thought road noise would be an issue, but hardly noticed it. Will stay again if I am ever back in Wellington

Great location as I wanted to hit the town for a meal and drink after a very busy days work. Great Manageress and very nice room. I will be staying here again on business for sure. The City is very close and the noise level from the road was amazingly not bad. Well done Team.
