Excellent room. Large window seat which took two large ports. Large bathroom. Full sized basin. Shower with doors which did not leak onto the floor. DVD player in room and movie library at reception. Very clean and well appointed. Close to Picton ferry terminal. Need to leave quite early for morning ferry as traffic quite a problem.

We stayed at the motel for 1 night and i am never going back here. The room was dark and eerie with rundown fittings. Only the bathroom had been renovated. The mattress and the blankets were stinking and were probably handed down from one guest to another for months. The staff at the reception was nice and friendly. That is... More

We stayed one night at Du Pont motel when passing through Wellington. Its very modern and very clean. Location is good especially if you are taking the ferry to Picton. The SKY TV channels are good and there is free wifi.

I stayed in a studio unit for work. Rooms are very spacious with plenty of room to relax. Lazy boy chairs. The desk space in the room was great too. Bathroom is large, water pressure is fantastic. Excellent cooking facilities. No road noise, unites are very quiet. TV is large! And a huge up is the My-sky recorder in the... More

Sadly we had a different experience to the other people who have reviewed this motel. We arrived at this motel in the late evening. As we were quite tired both of us had showers and went to sleep. In the morning when we wanted to shower again before breakfast we discovered only two towels had been given. So I went... More

We stayed here one night. Our room being one of the newer units was spacious, clean and very quiet. Unlike some motels we could not hear noise from the adjacent rooms or from those above. The bed was very comfortable and overall we had a pleasant stay. It was good value compared to some other motels where we have stayed... More

We decided to overnight in Wellington after coming from the South Island and not getting in till late afternoon. We booked via Fly Buys and although it was adequate and clean, we were put into one of the older units (#28). The bathroom fittings were very old and the shower pressure was almost non existant. My husband woke up during... More

We did not have a couch in the living area so it was either a hard dining chair or perch on the single bed......bit strange. We got good serivce at reception. Feel the motel... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and because we needed the extra bed decided to book the "older" room. I was a little surprised at the unit we were given, it does need abit of a upgrade. Whilst it was comfortable and clean, it was probably a little overpriced. Just the one small tv in the main room, none in... More
