Comfortable rooms, great restaurant food & exceptionally friendly staff. Conveniently situated & although a little noisy because of motorway, not bad enough to be of concern. Wifi to rooms would be an added bonus! Would have no hesitation in recommending this Motor Inn.

Drove from Coromandel, tired & hungry & wanted somewhere close to ferry terminal for early start. Food was good in restaurant, but got no sleep as Motel is high above Motorway and noise travels up. Would not stay again.

The rooms were large. The beds were comfortable. Had everything we needed. Shower wasn't that great. Poor power and there was a shampoo body wash dispenser which I found weird. I like bar soap not body wash. Price was reasonable. Accommodating with parking etc. Breakfast was amazing and a good price.

Found this place when looking around for some where to stay and it turned out to be great. After we left we found out we were members of the golden chain. Not to worry we had a great stay.The motel staff were very helpful with direction and places to go and see.

We stayed at a powered site. We originally stayed here for 1 night after getting off the ferry. It was very clean, only 2 showers/2 toilets which is a shame as it can get busy at peak times, but they are clean. Laundry and kitchen facilities are very good and very clean. We ate in the restaurant and it was...

If your looking a very basic place to stay then this is the one for you. Cost for two nights was $92.00 which was easily the more costly campervan places to stay during our journey from Auckland to Wellington. The toilet rubbish bins were not emptied during our stay. The kitchen facilities were very basic, one toaster only. When there...

Checked out caravan sites in the greater Wellington area with disappointing results....until we found the Capital Gateway with powered sites available for caravans and campervans - a large sealed carpark behind the motel units is set up for this purpose. The Reception staff were friendly & helpful allocating us a convenient site for our large caravan+car. Very easy to find...

Very clean and tidy but shower and basin need replacing, room service dinner was great, bed comfortable, but bit expensive really for what it is, would put it more in the $140 - $150 bracket than $175

Toyed with Poor vs Average but went with the latter as no hot food available for take-away on the day we stayed. Practically, we stayed here as convenient for the early start on ferry next day so we only needed a parking space, and I guess that's what we got so can't really complain. Easy enough to find but opportunistically...

This Hotel was a bit hard to find mainly due to the location and the roads in Wellington. When we arrived we were greeted with a friendly smile and given our keys. The room was large with two bedrooms upstairs and a bed downstairs. The property looks like an old english cottage and is very pleasant to stay in. I...
