Stayed here for a family event in Petone. This motel is only a short walk away from a good range of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants in Jackson St, and not too far from the Lighthouse Cinema. Our welcome was warm and friendly, with excellent off-street parking, and the motel unit was clean and easily-heated on a cold, blustery day!... More

Stayed here before catching the ferry the following morning - it's a short, direct drive from 83. Our room was lovely and warm when we arrived and really nice soft furnishings. Lots of good parking around the back and kitchenette in the room was great.

Pleasant helpful staff as we found is always a good omen. The cleanliness & clean fresh beds is absolutely essential for us and this place was just the ticket. Having... More

If you need a clean, friendly,value for money place to stay, before or after the Ferry Crossing, this is it.7 minutes from the Ferry.The receptionists were helpful and very friendly, we arrived as strangers and left as friends.

We stayed for 3 nights while visiting family. Adequate comes to mind. The room was compact but well equipped however our room suffered from road noise to the front and constant music from a yard at the rear. Host helpful with early departure. Easy on site parking and convenient for Wellington.

We couldn't get a room in the Wellington area because of some rugby games going on in the area so we booked in Lower Hutt. We arrived very early. The hotel staff was super friendly. Our room happened to be free but not cleaned. They stored our luggage while we went for a walk and found lunch. When we got... More
