We wanted to spend a couple of days in and around Wellington on north island vacation. Chose this place because the hotels in wellington looked to be expensive, and driving into a biggish city is always a "pain". The motel is 2 minutes off the highway into Wellington, 5 minutes walk from the suburban train station, a 20 minute 9 NZD fare into the city, trains every 30 minutes. Very pleased with the choice. The motel is new, rooms excellent, v quiet, and there is a supermarket just across the road. Staff/ owners very helpful. There is a national art museum nearby - which we didn't get to. Train comes into central station, which is right by parliament buildings, and 10-15 minutes walk from the other main sites.
