We wanted accommodation in Wellington for 4 nights but as we left the booking to the last minute and over a weekend we had few options. We chose this property for the first 2 nights of our stay as it had good reviews and not too far to travel into Wellington and surrounding bays. Access is up a side street... More

Our stay was unusual in that we were visiting relatives nearby so spent 5 and then 7 nights at the hotel. We had the opportunity to get to know the managers whom we found very friendly and helpful. We will definitively stay there again . The room was of an excellent standard and could not be faulted. It has the... More

Reasonably quiet, good location close to our family event and away from railways. We didnt hear any traffic even though not being far from the motorway. Average, met basic needs. Not overly impressed with cleanliness finding long black hairs in bathroom.

We loved the easy parking, our room was immaculately clean with everything we needed, the bed very comfortable and the very friendly reception and staff was most appreciated. We would recommend the in room breakfast... More

We chose this place because we needed to be in Johnsonville and it was convenient. It will be worth commuting from now on just so we don't have to stay here again. At check in the welcome was not particularly friendly. When we got into the room it was freezing. There were 6 dark hairs in the bath, several on... More

HI Joey, We have been away for a holiday and on our return we have sadly found out that our motel minders have let you down. I have talked to my housekeeping staff and re-established that all the bathrooms need to be checked again after they clean it. My husband and I normally check again after they finish a room... More

The room was lovely, nicely decorated and had every needed for basic microwave cooking. Great sound proofing for the outside world, but sadly the sound proofing inside was terrible! Every noise was heard in the hallway outside the room; talking, doors closing, even foot steps. Between the rooms was just as bad, heard every toilet use, shower etc. This was... More
