The Southgate Motor Inn is right across the road from Wellington Regional Hospital - therefore the location is brilliant for access if visiting someone at the hospital or working there short-term. However of course you MAY hear the rescue chopper fly overhead, or hear an ambulance head for the emergency department, but I would not worry about it too much.... More

The rooms are well equipped with everything you need. Walking distance to two supermarkets and Newtown shops - opposite hospital. The owners are very accommodating. We had family coming and going - although fully booked they would find us room as it became available. Thank you for your hospitality, it will never be forgotten 👍

The booking was seamless called after hrs and arrival was midnight. Heater was on curtains drawn lights on, that was a nice touch. Good size room and great location to the hospital right across the street. Paid $145 for the night and we were able to extend our checkout time and use a car park while finishing our visits to...

Not bad although where the car needed to be parked was a very steep driveway. Avoid it unless someone strong is helping you. Getting inside there was a slight step, that again needed help to negotiate. Bathroom was good, bed was comfortable. People running it were very helpful and lovely

The owners were very helpful to me. When my husband had an unplanned admission to the hospital I stayed there for a week. They gave me directions, helped me find the services I needed. The room was more than adequate, bed comfortable, bathroom modern, kitchen well appointed.

Ideal location as my course was at Wellington Hospital just across the road. Well equipped kitchen, comfortable king size bed and I really enjoyed relaxing in the spa bath at the end of my full on day. The staff were friendly and helpful so I managed to access WiFi without any trouble (I am technologically challenged). A great place to... More

Having to stay close to Wellington hospital, this place was a god send 😊 no need to battle traffic, just immediately over the road to the main entrance. The hosts were fantastic, having had to change my booking the first time, then to rebook different dates and also extended my stay , nothing was too much of a problem. They... More

A really excellent place to stay if needing to stay near the hospital for any length of time. Very friendly staff and room was very clean. Best shower I have seen for a long time very strong water flow and good size shower. King size bed and single bed and fold out bed were very comfortable. Television had good range... More

We originally booked for four nights when we visited Wellington for the Edinburgh Military Tattoo. A change of plan had us ask for an extra night. The manager juggled the rooms so we could stay in the room we had, rather than ask us to move. With us in, the motel was full so that was very helpful I thought.... More
