  • 6.0.Good

    Location was very handy and the free parking was a great option. We stayed here one night and it did the trick - cheap and easy. But, if you were looking for a nice holiday in Wellington, I wouldn't recommend this spot. The rooms are very dated and smell like cigarettes. Every floor in the building has a unique "aroma" and you get a lot of "city life" drunks and dis-orderlies wondering around the area, which makes sleeping difficult with people hanging outside your window hours after midnight. If you're visiting Wellington and you won't be spending much time in the accomm, this is a good spot/location - but if you're planning to relax in the rooms, it won't be my #1 choice.

    It was a good cheap and cheerful property in a great location with parking. I was transferring my parents car from Nelson to Auckland. So the big disappointment was the hub caps we stolen of my parents car, even though it was parked underneath the Motel in the garage!

  • 4.0.Fair

    The room was very cold as the heater didn't work. There was no blanket, just a thin cover on the bed. I was so cold I wore my clothes to bed. There was no coffee, milk or sugar in the room and we had you go to reception 3 times before there was someone there to assist. Although it was a budget motel I would have expectef it to provide even the basics.
