Short drive to airport, Kilbirnie sports Centre and town. Only a 10 minute walk to Courtney Place. Double galzing helped keep the traffic noise out and room was well appointed, warm and clean. Free off street parking. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed two nights at the Marksman. We found it very central for most of the places that we wanted to visit/see in Wellington, The unit we stayed in was very clean and comfortable and surprisingly very quiet. The owners were helpful with our request on restaurants in the area. Our unit was serviced each day. Great free wifi. It... More

The hotel is clean and neat. The decor is a bit dated. We used a two bedroom unit and were disappointed that the kids single beds were in the main area which meant parents couldn't watch TV after putting the kids to bed. There was no separate TV in the bedroom. There was plenty of utensils and plates etc to... More

I showed the staff the booking i made and she said it's a mistake. Not happy. We stayed for 2 nights, house keeping didn't even fully made the... More

This stay was a last minute booking when our time in Wellington had to be unexpectedly extended. Without much time to research possible accommodation options we took a punt and booked into the Marksman Motor Inn. The rooms are equiped as one would expect for accommodation in this price range and are clean and comfortable. Motel management are friendly and... More

Approx 20 minutes walk to harbour. Spacious room with comprehensive kitchen facilities (hobs, hotpan, microwave kettle and all crockery). Very clean room. Some traffic noise at night (but expected in the city!).

Such a lovely central, cozy place to stay, close to the hospital at around $10.00 a trip.. Owner is a lovely lady who will give excellent service and support. We had to change rooms on the second next and this was done seamlessly.

Stayed here with my wife and toddler. Good location to town and restaurants etc. Room was a good size and nice and clean. Bed was comfortable and room price was very good. Had an appointment on morning of check out and reception allowed us an extra hour to vacate. Would stay here again.
