“Clean and comfortable”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

This lodge is within college grounds. We found the room very well appointed with a good size double and single. The ensuite facility was clean with up to date fittings. The kitchen, should you want to use one, is shared with other residents, otherwise the room is equipped with kettle, coffees and teas etc.

The drive to Picton ferry was exactly 20 minutes for the mid-week 8 am ferry, leaving the lodge at 6.30am, which was an easy drive.

The owners were friendly and helpful, and there is a shopping centre within walking distance, Easy parking also makes this a good lodge for an overnight stop to the ferry.

We arrived in Wellington around 18.00 on 15 Feb 2012 by ferry from Picton to find availability of beds to be zero and the same for hire cars. Had tried to book room ahead without success. Resorted to contacting friends in Auckland who found Kenepuru on web for us but it meant catching train to Porirua. This turned out to be easy by taxi from Ferry Terminal to main station (NZ$10/11) and further 20 mins to Porirua. The owner of Kenepuru had volunteered to collected us at Porirua station! Wonderful. A further very pleasant surprise - brand new tastefully decoration accommodation, with a view and the use of the very clean, well equipped communal facilities on ground floor. There were larger rooms for families. Local shops 5 mins on foot. The owner Shane and his wife Jane could not have been more helpful and friendly. Shane also dropped us back to the station (2 mins away) the next morning. Full marks and we wish them every success with this new venture.

Room Tip: The location was very quiet and serene.
