We both desperately needed a break away from a stressful life. We could not have picked a better place to stay. From the time we arrived and were so warmly welcomed by the Managers through until we departed and wished a safe and happy trip home we felt relaxed and so thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The room was immaculate, everything... More

What a perfect spot to end our New Zealand holiday! We asked for a first floor balcony room and it was every thing we hoped for. Fabulous waterfront views across the bay to Wellington, a delightful balcony and excellent facilities, clean and modern. The hosts friendly, welcoming and helpful. A gem. Especial the two rocking chairs!

We stayed at B-K's Esplanade Motor Lodge for the first time just recently. I loved having a recliner in the room, it really did make things so much more comfortable. The spa bath was great as was the DVD collection that was freely available for guests to use. We had wonderful sea views and the owners were extremely friendly. We... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hosts were friendly and accommodating. Our unit was clean, well set out and with an amazing view of the harbour. That was our second stay and we'll be back! Highly recommend. Thanks.

We found our room was very clean and well presented. We had a 5 night stay here. Staff were helpful when it came to storing our frozen's that we had brought with us in their large freezer. In the room there is a kitchenette which was reasonable but not quite good enough for cooking properly. There was a 2 element... More

Hello Restored of Christchurch, Thank you for your review of BKS Petone. We appreciate your thoughts. We are a complex that is only 3 years old, and most modern motels have no cooking facilities at all, so we feel that we cater for most guests cooking needs well. We do state in our advertising what we have in the units,... More

We loved our stay in this motel. Service was good, bed was fabulous, had a great sleep or rather would have if the refrigerator wasn't so noisy!! We should have slept in the bedroom rather than share the room with the fridge. Proprietor said that he would investigate the noisy room mate! Will stay there again, 5 minute walk to... More

Our accommodation was spotlessly clean, comfortable and well equipped, perfect for our three night stay before crossing to the South Island. The laundry was excellent and our hosts helpful and friendly. The recliners in the room were a dream - we’ve lost count of the number of motel rooms where there is only one comfortable chair.

I recently stayed here for 8 nights whilst exploring the greater Wellington region. The motel is modern, clean, well equipped, very comfortable, great location. The managers are helpful and very pleasant. I was amazed at how quiet the rooms are, considering u are on a main road. We never heard any traffic noise or other guests i.e., TV, talking etc....

Since lots of other folks must stay in this motel just the one night before taking the Interislander Ferry to the South Island, I had assumed it would be just okay. My room was surprisingly large and comfortable, including 2 lounge chairs, desk, kitchenette and of course bed. The hosts were very helpful, and I purchased the basic continental breakfast,... More
