Convenient location and was lovely getting a drink on arrival. Comfy and clean with real milk given and a nice spa bath. Poorly labelled entrance would help having a sign to attract you to the driveway. Just a shame the wifi was limited data.

Room was clean and had basic kitchen facilities - microwave, stove top, etc Bus stop less than a block away so easy to get back into city centre Limited car parking space. Complementary drinks were given on arrival and because we were early we were able to stow our luggage, and were able to do the same when we checked out. The only negative was other inconsiderate patrons that decided to “party” loudly till the early morning

A very convenient last-night stop in the capital city for us - next door to our rental car drop-off, pleasant location on Lyall Bay and handy for Parrot Dog brewbar! Slightly difficult access if driving, but a handy covered car park. Friendly reception where you get a couple of free drinks as well as milk for tea and coffee. Our ground floor double bedroom was adequate, if a little cramped, with a rather random uneven floor, but the bathroom was surprisingly spacious.

I am sure this is an ok motel to stay at. i have not stayed at it. I can purely write about the customer service and not keeping promises made. Long story short. Flight got cancelled in early December due to weather conditions i Wellington and i had to reschedule. Wrote an email and got a call back immediately more or less from lovely lady. So far so good. Agreed that i would revert with new date as soon as possible and i could use what i had paid for. I admit, did not plan new trip until end January but wrote back to them early Jan to confirm. Chased a few times and got email back a few weeks later. Apparently they never received my email. Ok, that can happen. Now, not possible to honor previous promise as i had booked through booking.com. I don't have an account with booking.com so that is not really possible. The room was booked directly on their website. Send proof on payment (copy of visa payment) and asked them to check again. Never heard back. I appreciate the new booking was almost 1.5 month later and they are in every right to not pay me back the money i paid for it. But, then dont offer in the first place . A verbal agreement is as good as a written and them saying they will not honor because i booked through Booking.com I find rather sad (when i dont have an account with booking.com). It is what it is and sad that a word is not a word
