Had a great stay...excellent room with sea views....sound proof room...spa bath included...close to everything....the only downfall was the breakfast of scrambled eggs were dry and appeared to have been a microwave diluted version...otherwise It was a great experience...

Rooms very well done with unexpected comfort of two recliners! Very clean; spacious shower; nice toiletries. Good sleep on very comfortable bed. Great view from room; nice to have patio space. Public areas in hotel very nondescript.

We recently stayed here for 3 nights and found it very clean and comfortable, we were in a 1st floor studio with ocean views, it is on a busy road but with double glazing it reduced the noise so were able to sleep soundly, it is situated close to the main shopping centre with a good choice of cafés and...

The location of this motel is excellent. If you get a room at the front the view is stunning, looking straight onto the bay. It's only a short walk along Tory Street to the main shopping street where there's a fabulous choice of shops, cafés and restaurants. The owners are friendly and helpful and were very accommodating when we needed... More

Stayed here while visiting Wellington. It’s a bit of a drive outside the city centre but we had a car so that was fine. The location is very good. The motor lodge is a short walk from the main street of Petone which contains all the eateries and boutique shops. It is also a short walk to the Esplanade. Our... More

Great place to stay. Owners couldn't be more accommodating. There was lots of us staying here for work over a long period and it was no problem leaving vehicles there. Rooms are comfortable with great cooking facilities and top notch lazy-boy chairs. Can be a little noisy on the esplanade side but the view more than makes up for it,... More
