My wife and I went on a 2 week holiday to New Zealand, and when in Wellington, we stayed at this motel. It was quite far from the city. The place is a little run down, and because the rear is a camper park, we found it was a little noisy and also car parking space was quite difficult to get. WIFI is limited. And the unbelievable thing was when the girl at the reception charged me a dollar for a map brochure ! These are available free everywhere!

We were on stopover back from the South Island. Convenient from the ferry terminal but noisy motorway traffic and aircraft. Receptionist most unwelcoming and not helpful. Didn't mention it was a Kiwi park, we only noticed a flag through a window the other side of the building after paying. Went back but receptionist who refused our discount even though we used a debit card which is as good as cash. She just couldn't be bothered. Also expensive at $46 for two in a small campervan. Site is just a car park. Facilities poor and small. Not happy. Worst place we have stayed in the whole of NZ. Suggest staying in alternative campsites Even though they are slightly further away.

We stayed in our 6th berth camper here for our stop over in Wellington on the 2nd March. Basically this is a motel with a "campervan site" in the car park. Very tight spaces on the concrete. Very small facilities for number of vans/people. Only 1 toilet & 2 showers in each male/female block. Very small kitchen and dining area. Facilities were not that clean and old. Staff were friendly enough but not that helpful. 7km from the city and approxomately 20 minutes into town on the bus but this costs $5 one way pp. All 4 of my party were not happy with this camp site and wish we had checked it out first. Especially as it was expensive $76 for 4 people for what you got. I would recommend staying in one of the other sites further out of the city.

Have now stayed here several times on visits to NZ as it is so convenient for the ferry terminal. This time we actually had a meal in the restaurant and were not disappointed. The dining room is very pleasant and the food and service very good and reasonably priced. The rooms are clean and spacious and have everything needed for an overnight stop.

Positives: Conveniently close to motorway and easy to get into Wellington. Not too noisy. Owners are very helpful and the Christmas dinner was exceptional. Comfortable beds and linen, cosy bar area. Friendly atmosphere.

Negatives: in a gap in mountains and so no views of city. Feels isolated. Worn out cement paths outside rooms with bird droppings and flaky paint. 4 stars in the guide books is hard to understand. Old analogue tv, no air con, hot rooms if over 25 degrees. Over priced by 30% compared to other Nz accommodation on our trip.

I hope it can pull itself up to a better standard of facility to justify the prices asked. Would stay again only if it was cheaper.
