“Excellent location and facilities”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2010

We stayed at Capital View for 2 nights in Sep' 09 and it was wonderful. The rooms were very spacious, clean and had all the facilities you need to stay for short or long stay.
The location was also perfect considering it was only 5 mins walk to cuba with so many shops and restaurants.

And Mark at Capital View was also very helpful in answering all our questions and helping us trip planning around Wellington.

The hotel is of a fair age Kept in good condition but an upgrade in some areas wouldn't go amiss Our couch was in need of a clean. Our room for 4 was spacious and had a fabulous view of the city and all the amenities we needed for a few days.
Close to Cuba St our host was very helpful and friendly. Thanks

Mark, motel Owner, was patiently helpful to provide information to me, a first time travel to Wellington. I found this motel from Trip Advisor. I agree with the reviews: this place is value for money for a basic set up within walking distance to the buzz of Cuba Street, yet not too close to the noise at night. We stayed in the unit room, kitchenette facility was in good condition, we are able to prepare lunch for both days we were there. Hygiene is top on our priority, and we found the room clean and cozy. Good hot showers. Free in-house parking available! My 77 years old Granny had no complain, so this place was Great!!!
I managed to asked Mark about the unreasonable over stay charge in one of the reviews, apparently that was done by the previous owner before he took over.

Stayed here in August '10 with my partner overnight. Room is a good size & clean. Furniture is outdated and a little on the worse for wear side. Shower is impossibly small and no hot water in the morning. Could hear people in the room next door. Staff are an A+ though. I would look at staying elsewere if we visited Wellington again as I don't think this place is worth the price we paid.

The motel is a short walk from Cuba st., with 10's of cafes and restaurants. Therefore, it is quite convenient, and you do not need to drive or take a taxi to go out.

The room was not fancy at all, and perhaps lacking in furniture (for example there were no drawers, furniture was cheap). However, the cost was reasonable. Moreover, everything was functional and clean, including the well equipped kitchenette (with dishwashing soap, electric appliances, wine glasses, etc etc!). The bathroom was comfortable, and appeared newish and of a much better class than the room itself. The service was excellent, courteous, and with attention to detail. I do travel for work, and overall, I had a good impression.
