Reviewed April 10, 2014

I can not say enough about this Motel and it's staff. We were greeted upon arrival with a complimentary drink and taken to our room. The reception staff arranged a wake up call for us as we had to be at the airport by 4:30 AM and she also arranged a taxi to be outside waiting for us at 4:15 AM, everything was arranged for us and made things so easy on us. We were given a coupon for dinner and got free delivery to our room. The room we stayed in was the travelers room, large bench space to put luggage, very large shower which was great before the long trip back to the USA. Everything was just so perfect - from phone staff upon booking to check in staff - thank you!

Room Tip: The travelers room was perfect before flight out early next morning. Quiet.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are clean and have plenty of space. We had a bed and two bunks, I slept on the top bunk and it was comfortable and clean. No road noise and there is off road parking. Very close to the airport and harbour. Would stay again if in this area.

I have been to NZ over and over and every time I fly out of Wellington I have always stayed here. The staff (family - owners) are always so accommodating and helpful, happy to do what they can to make your stay a pleasure. Also great view over the beach to watch the planes take off from the nearby airport. 4 Stars for me. will go again for sure.

Room Tip: Staff will assist with requested rooms if asked. I prefer the upstairs (for quiet) down the end (for...

Arrived around midnight at the airport and the hotel came and picked us up in their mini-van. Check-in was quick and efficient and we got a complimentary drink each. Room was small, but did the job for one night. Room was a little noisy in the morning as we were on the ground floor and people were passing our window.
Breakfast was already in the room waiting when we checked in, so we were able to eat when convenient for us in the morning. Staff then returned us to the airport so we could collect our hire car.
Good service all round.

Good location and average price for what you got. I don't usually write a bad review, but very disappointed in motel. Not much appeal. Room was extremely noisy and easily heard all noise from other occupants (at very times of night/morning), bathroom fan did not turn off, dirty toilet and the bed smelt horrible (old and sweaty smell). Very budget accommodation and certainly not worth what I paid. Also other little things that just added to disappointment, no choice of trim milk or 'red' wine (complimentary which is nice if you like white wine), no hairdryer in room unless you picked up one from reception. These small things would make a stay much nicer for someone.

Room Tip: I guess room with a view??

This is a great place for sports teams to stay. Our basketball team stayed in spacious units that accommodated 4 players. These units had kitchen facilities but the manager allowed us use of the semi-commercial kitchen, the conference room and laundry at no extra charge. Although we were limited to times of the day that we could use laundry facilities the staff were very accommodating and did our laundry for us. We were within 5 mins of ASB stadium, supermarket, across the road from the beach and the Warehouse. Definitely would recommend to sports groups.

Stayed here before an early morning flight to Auckland for connection to Rarotonga. Literally just accross the road from the airport so a good option for those having to catch the early morning flights to Australia from Wellington.

Rooms are tidy and reasonably proportioned, and in the immediate are service station, chinese restaurant, and Burger King. For the price i think this is a good option, and David down at the front desk was friendly and welcoming.
