I admit I am more a hotel with room service sort of person, but this motel was ideally located for an expo at the Te Rauparaha Arena. The room was good value, clean and well stocked. There was good parking and there is a mall and supermarket just across the road. I would be happy to stay here again.

Rooms were clean and tidy....bed was comfortable...hosts were friendly and cheerful. Located close to major shopping centre, highway or train station. I would happily recommend the Amethyst for one or two nights accommodation.

Have stayed at other places around Porirua, and the Amethyst is definitely my preferred accommodation. Comfortable rooms, friendly staff, would highly recommend. Only possible downside for me was no WIFI, but they do provide internet by way of a LAN cable, just not so useful for cellphones or laptops without a cord connection.
