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

have stayed here a number of times while on business at Wellington hospital. Fairly modern, well appointed and clean. Short walk to the hospital and easy access to bus into town. There are a number of good restaurants and bars near to the motel.

I rang to see if they could accommodate me at short notice as I was going to visit my brother in hospital for a few days. Southgate is situated across the road from the hospital, so I didn't need a car and could duck back for a coffee anytime. Frequent buses from outside the hospital into city centre if needed....

Excellent place to stay! So close to Wellington Hospital. The owners were amazing, and so helpful. Would thoroughly recommend without hesitation. The units are bright and airy, perfect if you have someone ill in hospital.

We stayed here while my father was in hospital and the owners went out of their way to look after us. The room was modern, clean, warm and quiet. Just across the road to the hospital and down the road from restaurants and supermarkets. They let us book without a deposit, found us a room over a busy weekend and... More

Our room was comfortable if a little dated with the brown and beige décor. The pot with cigarette buts outside our bedroom window on the balcony was a real disappointment as we are non smokers and I would suggest to the hosts that if they are providing this, then it needs to be emptied of dirty buts. We ventilated the... More
