Rooms were clean and tidy....bed was comfortable...hosts were friendly and cheerful. Located close to major shopping centre, highway or train station. I would happily recommend the Amethyst for one or two nights accommodation.

Have stayed at other places around Porirua, and the Amethyst is definitely my preferred accommodation. Comfortable rooms, friendly staff, would highly recommend. Only possible downside for me was no WIFI, but they do provide internet by way of a LAN cable, just not so useful for cellphones or laptops without a cord connection.

This has to be the only hotel that provided an air freshener spray in the bathroom, a nice touch considering we had a 2 bedroom apartment. My mother was very impressed with this. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and tidy too. Would like to stay here again.
