It was a fair bit drive from the city, the room was amazing especially for the amount of people we had staying there. Lovely lady in reception was very kind towards us. We stayed for a couple of days here and I will definitely stay again in this place and tour this beautiful city. Good location close to shops and... More

We stayed at this motel at Johnsonville for 3 nights, we chose this because there is free parking and wifi. We are happy to find out that the car park is covered and free wifi is well enough to use during our stay, we had 5GB quota during our stay. And it just took about 5 mins walk to the... More

As I started to writing up the feedbacks for my NZ trip last year. Our experience with this motel was unforgettably negative. We didn't really recall what was the attitude of the old man in the reception during check in, because we were too tired from a long flight. When we were in the room, we heard the sound that...

HI Joe, I am completely shocked by your experience in our motel last June. I am truly and deeply sorry for my motel minder's behaviour/attitude. Motel operation is a 24/7, 365 days. So we take 2 breaks each year and we had minders to look after the motel while we were away. I have dug up the minding report for... More

This is our choice for over nighting before catching the Interislander.Five minutes walk to Johnsonville CBD, restaurants and train station. Clean and well presented rooms with all that is needed for the overnight stay.BUT watch out for the 80 km restriction down the Ngauranga Gorge. Staff were pleasant and helpful.Parking is under cover and has security cameras. Lift up to... More

Peter and myself brought 7 people here with us as we operate a wee tour company. We booked three apartments for the couples and a 2 bedroomed apartment for the three ladies. The rooms were clean and convenient. Sonny and Zoe are great. Sonny even dropped three of our ladies down to a restaurant for us while we walked as... More

The hotel was good overall. The room was clean room and staff were friendly. The only niggle I had was the distance from Wellington city, about 15 minutes drive in the car. As i booked by phone app and failed to notice the distance, perhaps my own mistake but the name Best Western Wellington is a little deceptive when the... More

A local Motel at the far end of town opposite the fire station. It might be the only place to stay locally and is a popular overnight venue. The rooms are of various sizes and layouts and you are pretty close to the widest selection of fast food options anywhere.

We stayed here for two nights and was a pleasant stay. It us along side the jville motorway but we were on the Johnsonville side so the noise was not an issue. Decor was a bit tired but we were just after a bed in a clean environment so worked well. Recommended to a visiting family member too and they... More

This hotel is actually located just outside the city, a 20 minute train ride into the city, and a short drive from the ferry terminal. That was great for us, because we don't like driving in strange cities, on the wrong side of the road! The room was spotlessly clean, and well appointed. The manager, Sonny, was very willing to...
