Great accommodation, value for money. Inexpensive cafe 2 minutes walk away for breakfast and lunch. Handy to Petone railway station, only $5 each way on train to city and stadium.

We only stayed two nights but would happily have stayed longer if we could. The room was spacious and the kitchenette well equipped. We walked 600 m to the train rather than taking the car into Wellington. The room was spotless and the proprietors extremely helpful. Highly recommended.

Stayed here while on a business trip, stayed for 2 weeks, felt sad I had to leave to come home, just like home, wonderful experience, Robin and Kathy are No1 in my book, breakfast either cooked or continental are fantastic, in room Wifi, 40 + channels of cable TV, showers to die for, the rooms are based on small apartments, beds are sooo comfy, newspaper delivered if you want, and Robin and Kathy can sort out any booking for you, short stroll to either the Petone Workingmen's club or down to Jackson St to all the eateries, PakNSave, Warehouse, McDonalds all within walking distance as well as the Petone Railway Station, $5 each way on the train into Wellington CBD, I can't fault the place,...go on pamper yourself and I WILL be going back !

Room Tip: Try and ask for unit 8 or 9 they are tucked away down the back, you feel in a world of your own

Settlers is not located in the best area, but we had no problem with the studio room, apart from it being very pink. Decor & bathroom fittings probably need updating, but clean and the bed was comfy. We always ask for a quiet area, as most motels are on a busy road and we got it. Robin ,the owner was very helpful with information on the train into Wellington, the station was within walking distance and where to eat. This was the only motel that we stayed in NZ that had a leaflet from Qualmark asking for our opinion on the rating. We opted to eat at the Working Mens Club, just around the corner. Great food and prices and a safe atmosphere. Family orientated. Petone is an ok place to shop & dine.Lower Hutt has a lot more shops.

Excellent motel to stay at. About a 5 minute walk from the Petone Train station where it is three stops into the main Wellington station.

The motel unit was quiet, very clean, and the beds and pillows very comfortable. The proprietor was helpful and we were able to check in earlier than requested without issue.

Breakfast ranges in price from $10-18 depending on whether it is continental or cooked. Wireless internet is also available although we did not make use of it.

The Settlers Motor Lodge is located in an industrial suburb of Wellington. Presumably its location is suitable for commercial travellers, but not for tourists wishing to visit Wellington. The staff is friendly, but the place is rather run-down, moldi showers and worn paint everywhere. Not a place I would recommend.
