Really enjoyed my stay. Yes the decor is dated, but all effort is made to provide comfort and there is everything you need. Its like going to stay with long time friends. What I like is the setting. It is has large grounds with a garden area and a feeling of expanse, facing north west for best exposure to the... More

I spent a couple of nights at Aotea Lodge recently and while it's heavy on the 80's vibe and could do with a bit of an update, my room was spotlessly clean and despite its proximity to SH1, was very quiet. The room was large, the staff are lovely and if you don't mind the time warp, I thoroughly recommend... More

The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to assist. We stayed for 3 nights and have booked to stay again later in the year for a longer period of... More

Air conditioning terrible. Had a shocking headache by end of day. Room for workshop was hot and airless. Staff smoked outside by entrance to Workshop. Disgusting. Food dreadful. Late. Stale. Cafe slow beyond belief. Relish from the supermarket slapped on plate. Food tired, tasteless and boring. Area grubby, table sticky. Staff disorganised. I pray I never have to go back.

There is an indoor swimming pool, but we did not use it. The owners were very friendly and kind as were the other staff members.the... More

Once again stayed here - enjoyed the night. Very comfortable bed, unit pretty clean and quiet and only 20 minutes from Wellington's CBD Only two very small niggles - the electric jug did not switch off automatically and the microwave needed updating (it was an old dial up type) Otherwise as usual enjoyed my stay. Will come back again
