We stayed on the budget side of this motel and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the furniture and fittings throughout. The small kitchen area is especially well set up for this type of accommodation. The DuPont is close to the lively shopping and restaurant precinct of Jackson Street, Petone. You really need a car to get around easily. Helpful staff.
We would certainly stay there again.

Stayed here for 2 nights while on holidays, the room was modern, neat and tidy but the hosts were not s friendly as other establishments we have visited while in NZ. The price was reasonable but the impression was that this is more for business people rather than those on holidays. The location probably supports this. OK but not great.

I stay at the Dupont Motel every time I'm in the Wellington region. The new wing has everything you could need for a business stay, including free wireless. The bathroom and kitchen are finished to a very high standard and are always clean. The HD TV and MYSKY are a bonus! Little things like the comfy armchair make this a home away from home. The owners are very friendly and helpful, and the instant online reservation system makes it simple to book. The location is good, being close to the motorway interchange, but there is no road noise at night. There are plenty of good eating options close by, including a great little Italian restaurant in Petone. This is a much better option than staying in a heartless hotel in the city. Highly recommended, and good value.

Have stayed twice in the past month, first stay for 2 weeks. Management super friendly and helpful, easy walk to Jackson Street for restaurants (Speight's pub has great food), etc., 25 or so minutes from the airport, easy drive to downtown Wellington, seems to me there is even a train station a long block away. Executive room for $135 all up was new with large firm bed, giant TV with all channels, excellent strength free Internet, coffee, tea, milk & daily newspaper also FOC, fantastic bathroom with huge shower, kitchenette with cooking facilities, table and 2 chairs outside, plenty of space to set up laptop, etc., and work from room. Very quiet location. Highly recommend.
BTW, if you rent a car as of NOV 2012 the gas station at the airport is closed for renovation so fill up with gas before getting to the airport. Pain in the butt if you don't.

Room Tip: If you are a single or a couple, ask for one of their new executive rooms.
