Clean room, nothing fancy: a bed, a bathroom with bottomless warm shower, kitchenette, complimentary tea and coffe. Everything you need for just one night. Best was the location convenient across the hospital which was the most important factor for me.

Stayed here over a weekend when on a conference next to the hospital; I was upgraded from a Queen studio to a one bedroom, where the bedroom was upstairs with the bathroom. I don't always sleep well in a city as live rurally but no problem here. Excellent friendly service.

Room Tip: I was at the back of the complex away from the road.

This motor lodge is directly opposite Wellington hospital which is why I stayed here. This is not a 5 star hotel nor does it pretend to be.
The rooms are comfortable, tidy and clean. Cooking facilities (a stove top, but no stove) are available and include a microwave plus basic cooking equipment.
Staff are very obliging.

Ascot Motor Lodge is a very convenient place to stay overnight in Wellington. Easy to locate with good public transport access to Wellington city-centre. Rooms are quite good, although the Wellington main Hospital is across the road we experienced no disturbance. Friendly service, very helpful in planning your way into town.

I had to stay in wellington when a family member was in wellington hospital. The hotel across the street was very nice. The staff are friendly, i could do cooking (it had a stove top and not just a microwave), yay for not have to share a kitchen/bathroom/tv etc, and it was handy to be literally across the street at a zebra/pedestrian crossing with lights. There is some kind of convenience store next to it, but I didn't go in there. I found the shops of Newtown were only a block away...everything you could want in very easy distance (supermarket, pharmacy, funky clothes, indian saris, a real french cafe, weekend market, ....). And on a main bus line to Downtown Wellywood or (in the other direction) the Zoo. I would stay there any time (except if I was broke) ;-)

Room Tip: Some rooms are upstairs and some are furthur back from the road (so some might be quieter/noiseier)
