We stayed in Rm1 just behind reception. It wasn't that ideal. Booked 4 adults and 1 baby and we were given 1rm with a pull out sofa bed which I thought was a bit budget. The noise in this room from cars and foot traffic is very noticeable, it can get quite loud. On the third night (Friday night) there... More

A very nice motel, neat and very clean room with comfy bed (room 11). Had a very good nights sleep. Shower was a bit short for hubby but pressure was strong. We parked onsite and stayed one night. So close to CBD including easy to find supermarkets.

Stayed here for one night with 2 school aged kids. It wasn't very busy, so we had plenty of car parks, but we were told there are more units than car spaces, so it's first in. As we had chosen this motel over another one which didn't have parking, I think this should have been made more apparant on the... More

We have stayed here twice now. The rooms are very comfortable, clean and equipped with all we need. The office staff (not sure if owners or managers) very helpful and obliging. The location is not central Wellington, but a short walk away. We parked the car and left it there for the two days of our stay. There are many... More

Stayed in motel in February. My photo ID was left in the room. When I discovered this I called up the hotel management. The owner was not there And they wanted absolutely nothing to do with my issue. If they can't return someone's ID how can you trust the staff? If you are looking for a safe environment look elsewhere.... More

Stayed two nights in August 2014 - upstairs room, shared with a female friend who took the lounge bed and I had the Queen in the separate bedroom! Close to city and in fact we walked into town for dinner and taxied home quite easily. Main issue was the lack of bed covers given we encountered a very cold, wet,... More

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
