We picked this place because we had to be at the ferry terminal by 7.30am the next morning and it proved to be a good choice. Also good because it's easily found when you're driving in on the SH1 and also it's on a bus route into Wellington with fairly frequent buses. The bus cost us $13 for 2 return tickets and bus took about 15 mins to get to Railway station. We had a large room which was clean and had what we wanted. The wifi didn't work very well but to be fair when I checked in they said to go back if problems but I didn't bother because we were only in the room a short time. In the morning it was a straight forward 5 mins down the road to check in for the ferry. The only negative is that the place is a bit tired décor wise but had so many pluses for us I came down at 4 stars.

Stayed 3 nights, very comfortable thanks to Wayne who recently acquired the motel.Rooms equipped with microwave, electric stove and kettle, fridge, complimentary tea, coffee sachets and milk. The rooms were clean and so was the bathroom. Great location, friendly hosts who went the extra mile when required. Location is close to Johnsonville shops and Motorway, Woolworths is a short walk. Would definitely recommend and stay again should we be in Welli.

Stayed 2 nights with own transport. Room was clean with full kitchen facilities (Microwave, Oven, Electric Stove, Fridge). Bathroom was clean. Housekeeping was good.
Location is close to Johnsonville Mall and Newlands Mall by car. Got a petrol station opposite the motel. Short and easy drive to Wellington ferry terminal.
Requested a hairdryer and was provided immediately. Requested universal plug for h/p charger was not available.
The current owners has sold the motel and new owner and management will be taking over soon.

A extended stay due to work commitments in Wellington. Great spot with easy access to motorway and not far from ferry if you can't face a late night drive up north.Rooms where mantained and cleaned to a high standard.Add to this the friendly host's and what else can you ask for.

If you are looking for a cheap motel close to the ferry then this is it ,the motel is dated and has seen better days but the owners were friendly,we arrived late afternoon and were gone early morning,the motel has all you need for a one night stay,but we found it noisy with the out side lights going on and off for most of the night.
