We duly arrived at the motel and I was really taken aback by the rundown exterior of this establishment. Not a good start. After checking in, we made our way up to the room with our luggage. Thankfully there was a working lift, so that was a bonus. Upon entering our room, we were met with the bedroom door that... More

Stayed here as a family for 3 nights for a Wedding. Five of us crammed in to a 1 bedroom unit. Building has had many leaks over the years and damage has not been repaired but was clean. Beds were okay and a least had a queen bed rather than 2 singles pushed together. Situation was quite noisy and found... More

Clean friendly motel a short walk from the city centre . Great for families . A little noisy from the man road but nothing to put you off. Good for buses taxis and walkers The room was well serviced and large enough for a family of five

I stay in a lot of motels/hotels throughout New Zealand on a regular basis. This motel has to be the single most awful place I have ever come across. The room rate was $169pn and definitely not value for money. Rooms are outdated and filthy..staff are rude. I cannot comprehend how you can charge a rate of a decent hotel... More

We had a good room with a nice outlook. There were no significant downsides. Staff were courteous and helpful. Rooms were well serviced daily. Ours was comfortable and while we ate out mostly our kitchen was quite adequate. Cuba Street, just 2 streets away had numerous Food and Bar outlets. I like Museums and Colonial Cottages etc. Many of these... More

This place seems to get a bit of bad press in the reviews but we couldn't find anything wrong with it. Pleasant staff, clean and tidy room, decent facilities and all within walking distance of pretty much everything. Yes you do get what you pay for, but if you expect anything more then maybe you should pay for more. Very... More

We visited during the WOW weekend which was also the start of school holiday. Most of other motels were fully booked and this was one of the available ones with reasonable price. I decided to book it despite the review. The reason that I booked it was because it's such a great location, especially for us without a car. It's... More

Cheap motel for Wellington, close to the CBD, free parking and that is about all it has going for it. More suitable for Backpackers. No information available for nearby restaurants etc. Would not recommend

Cheap hotel that was booked on a busy weekend so little choice. Worn out and very tired, service very poor, signage out of date and confusing . But it was cheap so can't expect much else. There was no wifi despite being told there was. No information on resteraunts or sights. No in house resteraunt or breakfast despite being advertised.

The Harbour City Motor Inn in Wellington is quite well situated for easy access to the shopping areas and nightlife of the city. The hotel also benefits from having on-site parking available to guests (a plus in Wellington) and also provides free wifi in the rooms. Sadly, however, this hotel looks and feels somewhat shabby and tired. The rubber seals... More
