“Comfortable and Clean”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

Stayed for just one night, central to good eating places. clean and comfortable. Close enough to city. Friendly staff. Enjoyed walking around the shops and nice scenery across the road. Would stay again.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2014

We only spent one night here, but it was ideal, with free parking, and very easy to get into Wellington. If anyone is worried about earthquakes, this motel only has ground floor rooms! Our room was not the most modern, but was very suitable for us, and we had a good meal in the local town. The new managers are improving the motel as quickly as possible (the website is much better than the old one!), and I'm sure it will be much better as time goes on. The managers were very friendly and helpful. Wifi was good. We would definitely stay here again.

This motel decor is slightly dated, but the bed was the most comfortable we've had in ages. Extremely clean and the shower had great pressure too. We would use this motel again.... I only wanted to say the above not make up stuff to use up 200 characters

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

We stayed one week and were pleased that Petone provided such easy access to Wellington (take the metro train, only 12 minutes!) and by car to the Hutt Valley area. It was also very close to the beach and a brisk walk to the main shopping street. It was near to the main road, which inevitably meant some road noise. The room was nice, clean and tidy. The only problem was the very iffy wi-fi, which never really worked for more than 2-3 minutes! Very annoying but the host provided us with a couple of free coupons to gain alternative wi-fi access, which helped.

The new owners have moved in and are carrying on the very high standard set by former owners. Worth as look and handy to all Wellington attractions. I have been staying here for 10 years as it is the most handy place for me to carry out my auditing of the Quality Mark at Supermarkets & Butcher shops going up the valley or in to Wellington.

I would stay here again, better that staying in Wellington.
Very helpful, rooms are Ok, TV channels a bit limited but no problems.
Across the road and you are on the beach, 3 minutes up the road and you are on the main drag with bars and restraunts.
15 minute train ride into the city.

Room Tip: Don't stay on the rooms closest to the beach, lorries in the night.
