Arrived absolutely shattered from a 10 hour or so drive, the manager was very helpful with all our needs upon arriving. Room was down the very secure card access (past 10pm) hallway past reception, with entry to the room via a keycard as well. Very secure which is awesome. Room was very spacious with a nice size kitchen, no oven... More

We chose the accommodation for its location as we were attending a seminar in Petone and the motel was midway between the seminar venue and the railway station and close to the main street. The welcome, late in the evening, was warm and friendly and this continued on a couple of occasions when we met the manageress during the day.... More

I have stayed here on many occasions when working at Saeview Marina which is about 5 minutes drive away. Jackson street is literally a 5 minute walk up the street and there are numerous restaurants, cafes and bars to get a meal, coffee or a drink. I like this place as it is close to everything this side of Wellington.

Clean, Neat and Tidy Accommodation with all the amenities you need. Loved the spa tub, got to soak and relax with some complementary wine after a long tough day. Excellent service and friendly staff. Quiet and peaceful with lovely views of the harbour from the rooms facing the harbour. The only thing i would recommend, would be better pillows. Centrally... More

Perhaps we had the worst room in the place (819) but the manager wouldn't change us to one of the larger rooms. The space was way too cramped for two adults and two suitcases. But even with the larger rooms, there would be noise from the traffic all night. There is no air-conditioning so one has to keep the window... More

This motel is well situated in the interesting town of Petone. The motel is smart and recently decorated with above average bathroom etc. There is plentiful parking and we used the gym which was also good. There are plenty of good restaurants nearby in the historic Petone high street.

We stayed in a one bedroom unit that had a Queen bed in the living area and 2 single beds in the bedroom. As well as having the bed in the lounge there were 2 lounge chairs so somewhere to sit when watching TV at night. Not a huge area though for 4 people. The motel complex is quite new... More
