I read other reviews and really can misjudge comments made. The world is full of travellers that are either on holidays or on business . Business travellers must have comfort and a good nights sleep or work function suffers the next day. The Marina Motor Lodge has large rooms, very clean and comfortable furnishings. When I visited a week ago,... More

Found Marina unit very clean, staff were helpful and friendly, within walking distance of all amenities. Had a delicious breakfast - worth the money!! Even though close to railway line, the unit was soundproof and no disturbance from trains. Would definitely recommend this place to my friends.

Motel that is easily located on the main highway, west coast, just north of Wellington in the Porirua area. Our room was located on the second floor with a door and stairway to the parking lot. The room was clean, spacious and had an enclosed balcony with large windows. The light rail runs right behind the motel and it is... More

It didn't start well, with advice when we called them again, that our booking had not been confirmed by us (we had just phoned-in and provided Credit Card details for the booking) and was now not available - taken by a Corporate. Initially begrudgingly accepted this but then we called back to query. They admitted their mistake and the booking... More

My wife and I spent one night here and would never again. The only plus of the stay was we didnt pay for the stay as someone else did. The Restaurant that they still advertise as open on the AA website was shut and had been for a while, the king side bed was two beds joined together which left... More

I stayed here with a netball group and the staff and facilities were absolutely fantastic! It is a great setup for sports teams and the adjoining rooms are an added bonus, we used the kitchen freely and the dinning room/lounge as well. The rooms were extremely clean, tidy and modern and the beds extremely comfortable. But what blew me away... More

Stayed in the Premier Spa Suite. Lovely clean room. Big cosy bed. Was very comfortable. Would definitely stay again. Was great to have a spa bath at night. A nice getaway. Close to shops and amenities is a bonus.
