Best Western Wellington
Ranked #24 of 46 Hotels in Wellington
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 14, 2014

Coming across from the South Island we were looking for a convenient hotel for a good nights rest and quick escape the following day. The Best Western met all of our needs as it was close the ferry landing, outside of city centre, just of the motorway, offered wifi and convenient free parking. While it could be a little of a challenge to locate without GPS, you are encouraged to make the effort. Excellent underground parking with an elevator makes for easy unloading of luggage and the rooms meet all basic needs while at the same time being clean. While the hotel is adjacent to the motorway we did not find it noisy.

Zoe and Sunny are the live in owners who serve as great host. They freely offered suggestions on restaurants and shopping. It should be pointed out that the location is convenient for essential shopping needs but is not where you would go for fashion or touristy items. While we did not make the effort it would appear the property would be convenient should you wish to explore Wellington.

I travel a lot for work and this has got to be one of the most delightful hotel experiences I have had to date. The rooms are huge and very clean, the hotel is literally a minute walk from the shops and eating places and the couple who run the motel are lovely! Also you can still get room service for breakfast which is very convenient. Johnsonville is only 10 mins from the city and very central to all the surrounding towns. I would absolutely recommend staying here!

Booked this motel based on price, location and free parking, when we got here a day ahead of our booking, the hosts happily and quickly found us a room. We were not disappointed in our choice of motel. It was clean, comfortable and great service, excellent all around The bed was excellent. And the price was great as well. We would highly recommend Best Western Jonsonville.

We chose to stay here in preference to a city-centre hotel and were glad we did.
The hotel has easy access and good car parking, is quiet and is a short walk from a mall and bus/train station. The hotel is comfortable and competitively-priced and has very friendly and approachable staff.
It is only 10 mins drive to/from the Interislander Ferry terminal, and about 15 mins from downtown Wellington.

First impression of Johnsonville - fast food heaven. After so many lovely places Visited in NZ we wondered how we could have made such a big mistake. The impression did not improve when we found the hotel up a cul de sac past the KFC. All that changed when we got inside. Spacious, clean and airy. Rooms are well equipped. Our room was on the motorway side of the building and we did get a bit of traffic noise but not too bad. The train goes into the city from Jville. 25 minutes, 4NZD and every 30 minutes

The interior decoration of the public areas and rooms was simply stunning – it certainly made us feel like we were staying in a five-star hotel. The hosts were warm and helpful, allowing us to use a luggage trolley rather than have to make several trips to and from the car to get all our suitcases. Surprisingly, there was a second TV in the second bedroom rather than the main bedroom (which my five-year-old was ecstatic about!). The motel is less than 15 minutes by car from the centre of Wellington, thanks to the nearby motorway. The only fault we could find was that the light in the main bedroom flickered, and although we asked for it to be fixed, nothing was done during our two-night stay – the only cloud over what was otherwise a wonderful place to stay.

Hi there, thank you for giving us such a nice review. We are very sorry about the light. We have ran out of that particular light bulb when you told us it is flickered on your second day of staying and haven't been able to get one before you checked out. Apologies again for any inconvenience. Kind Regards, Zoe

We stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed ourselves. Zoe and sunny were unexpectedly great hosts. Much better than your normal hotel receptionists. They wanted to make sure we didn't get lost in the city and even gave us an umbrella to use. We slept on the side with the motorway and it didn't bother us. With the window closed it's not really noticeable. The rooms are clean and comfortable and we received 500mb of data which was enough for our two nights. It was a great location to the picton ferry and an easy 10 min drive into welly.
