Prior to immigrating to the UK my partner and our 2 dogs required somewhere to stay for just over 1 month. We had the great pleasure of staying at the Mana Motel. Hosts Ross and Megan where fantastic and made us feel so welcome and it was more like staying with friends. The unit was warm and clean and it was a home away from home. The cleaning staff are a great bunch of girls and work so hard to keep the units to a high standard.
While the motel is beside SH1 on one side and the main north railway line on the other we were quite amazed at how quiet the motel is. Of course you can hear the trains go by but for the 15 seconds every hour really was no issue and after awhile you just forgot about them - they certainly never woke us up - put it that way. this may also have been due to the bed just being so comfortable which is often rare in a Motel/Hotel.
The surrounding places to eat where clean and friendly and the meals were enjoyable.
Fantastic that our dogs could stay with us as this was the hardest thing to find in Wellington and its a credit to Ross and Megan that they realise that people who travel with their pets more often have dogs that are freindly and well looked after.
Great last place to stay before departing New Zealand thanks to Megan and Ross and staff.
