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

Coming across from the South Island we were looking for a convenient hotel for a good nights rest and quick escape the following day. The Best Western met all of our needs as it was close the ferry landing, outside of city centre, just of the motorway, offered wifi and convenient free parking. While it could be a little of... More

I travel a lot for work and this has got to be one of the most delightful hotel experiences I have had to date. The rooms are huge and very clean, the hotel is literally a minute walk from the shops and eating places and the couple who run the motel are lovely! Also you can still get room service... More

We chose to stay here in preference to a city-centre hotel and were glad we did. The hotel has easy access and good car parking, is quiet and is a short walk from a mall and bus/train station. The hotel is comfortable and competitively-priced and has very friendly and approachable staff. It is only 10 mins drive to/from the Interislander... More

First impression of Johnsonville - fast food heaven. After so many lovely places Visited in NZ we wondered how we could have made such a big mistake. The impression did not improve when we found the hotel up a cul de sac past the KFC. All that changed when we got inside. Spacious, clean and airy. Rooms are well equipped.... More
