“Nice one”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 10, 2009

Never felt good about accommodations in Wellington until we found this one. Comfortable and affordable. Friendly and helpful staff (not so easy to find in Wellington).
The building is a little old but well-maintained. Easy walking distance to city centre. Spacious room with Kitchen and cooking equipments. Motor Lodge but also recommendable for travelers with no car.

Yet again we had another sucessful stay at Capital View.
You can't beat the location, no need for a rental car to get around town.

The management have always made us feel more than welcome, nothing extra we have asked for has ever been a problem.

The room standard is always great. Although it has an older styled decor our rooms have been clean & well presented.

  • Liked — The Clean room & the friendly staff.
  • Disliked — No SKY.

DO NOT stay at the CAPITAL VIEW MOTOR INN. We were charged $1 for every minute we were late in checking out (an extra $50 in total) and were abused by our "hosts" when settling the $200 account for one night's stay charging us $250. This is a poorly equipped Motor Inn managed by poorly mannered people. When questioned on the additional $50 fee, they responded by saying they didn't want ignorant people like us staying with them. At no stage were we informed there was an option to check out late or that there would be a fee charged if we did, in fact, check out late.

Stayed here on a trip to the capital for the second time with my partner. Absolutely wonderful motel/motor lodge that exceeded our expectations.

We stayed in a studio room for $115 (NZ) per night, which gave us a double bed and single bed, plus a kitchenette - including a hot plate, microwave, toaster and jug, plus a small fridge containing a small icebox contained within. We also got free offstreet parking. Perhaps a bit expensive to stay in Wellington, but well worth it seeing we didn't want to go out to dinner/lunch everynight.

Everything was clean and tidy when we arrived, and the room was cleaned and tidied to an immaculate standard everyday of our stay.

The decor of both the hallway/entrance and the rooms were excellent - the room was quite large as was the bathroom. There was a TV that I think had SKY, but we never really turned it on.

The location wasn't really a problem for us. It was about a half hour walk to the centre of the city, which for some may be a bit too far, but was fine for us. Staff were very polite and VERY helpful.

Overall, a wonderful experience and we would definitely stay again!

Very good value for money.
Room very spacious and not bad views.
Facilites like tea and coffee making excellent, even had a coffee plunger thingy.
Beds quite comfortable and clean.
Water pressure for hot showers a bit poor but probably not fault of management-rather because of hilly situation?
Staff at reception desk very helpful, plus lots of free visitors' literature and maps near front desk.
Would definitely recommend to other friends and relatives.

  • Liked — Clean,comfortable and spacious.
  • Disliked — The lift could do with an upgrade.
