4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

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

We stayed here twice during our recent stay in New Zealand. The rooms are extremely comfortable and very well equipped and modern. The beds are also very comfy. We had booked a room with sea view which was amazing, lovely to sit out on the balcony and watch the sunset and other activities going on! However, the down side was... More

The welcome at Reception was just the beginning of a wonderful experience! Annette was extremely helpful and gave us a wonderful room overlooking the bay. The room was fully equipped and was very comfortable. The only drawback was there was no room available to stay another night!!

Stayed only one night on my first visit to Wellington for a sporting event in Upper Hutt We booked 3 rooms only a few days before, so $160 for the room was a little on the steep side, but the room and service cannot be faulted. The room was one of the cleanest and best equipped I've stayed in around... More

We stayed here for 4 nights after leaving a place we were unhappy with. It was such a relief and comfort to find B.K. The room was so comfortable especially the recliners were a real tread.. Bed was great and location superb. I would highly recommend his motel, feels luxurious for a motel...
