I should note that am writing this review on behalf of my parents as they are not what you would call 'computer savvy'.
My parents booked the 747 Motel due to the close proximity to my place which is in Kilbirnie. I understand that it was $120 per night. I would assume many of the people book this place as it is only a few kms far from Wellington Airport.
The first thing I noticed was how dark it was in the unit. It is near impossible to read a book in the room as the lighting is terrible. Even in the middle of the day it is not much better. There isnt enough parking available on street if all the units are full as residents that live in the area also require the parking.
The worst part was the blood stain on one of the blankets. My mother went to reception and told them about the stain and that she wanted it sorted out. She was told that the cleaners would come in later in the day to have a look. This did not happen. One can only wonder if a visible stain like that is acceptable, what on earth is on the rest of the bedding that you cant see! Last I heard, the issue of the stained blanket was not sorted out. Therefore, service not high on the list of priorities.
I suppose the bonus to this place was that it was very warm and fast to heat. Also couldnt really hear people in the units above. Could only hear people that were outside talking.
I would not recommend this place at all. If it is close proximity to the airport you are after, there are better options out there.
