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

We recently stayed a night here after getting ferry from Picton. We were recommended this motel by friends who stay there often and if you didn't know it was there, you would miss it. But so pleased we were told about it. We were very impressed by the friendly and helpful staff. Our room was very spacious and very clean.... More

The room was great and the reception was friendly and helpful. For $175 I did expect more of a hotel experience, rather then the apartment style motel experience we had. Sound proofing of the dividing walls is poor. You can hear when your neighbours use the toilet, shower and are enjoying a little horizontal athletics.

Staff were friendly. Good value for money. Room clean and had all the necessary amenities. The motel itself was a bit grey and uninviting. Good to have free on site parking and local takeaways if needed. Room specifications said we had a balcony. It was more a concrete walkway down the side of the apartment facing a large concrete wall.... More

Standard motel room with nice furnishings. Bed was a bit soft but otherwise fine. Free wifi and mini kitchenette was handy. Also had sky tv. Staff very friendly. We also utilised the laundry downstairs. Very good value.

Stayed for one night prior to catching the Wellington to Picton Ferry. Hotel is easy to find when travelling from the North but a larger sign at the Burgess Rd entrance would help. Undercover free parking is a bonus. Friendly welcome at reception and room was large, comfortable and very clean. Well equipped (like many NZ hotels) with microwave, kitchenette... More

We checked in and the owners, who work the front desk greeted us! They were very friendly. They showed us to our room and gave us maps and directions to the bus and metro to get into town. This Best Western a bit on the outskirts of Wellington, so for travelers that want to tour in Wellington it is not... More

Reception lady was very friendly, room was clean and tidy, a bit of road noise in morning. Shower water pressure was pretty low. They had ice trays to hand out and a good heater added warmth to the room. Not many tv Chanel's to choose from. Undercover car parking is handy
