I was initially nervous about booking in to Amethyst, because I had read a few poor reviews. My experience was fantastic! Even though this motel is 6 years of age everything looks as new.

The people who run this place were incredibly rude to the point of hanging up on me when I tried to make a booking after telling me rooms were available. Don't bother contacting this hotel if you want a late arrival or are coming off the ferry. Normal practise for late arrival is to leave room open and take payment...

Thankyou for your second review after the 1st one was removed from Trip Advisor because you violated their guidelines. As we have already explained our website states we do not accept guests checking into our complex after 9pm and you were coming off a late ferry and 9 times out of 10 the ferries are always later than the scheduled...

Great location, close to Porirua shops & Events Centre, only problem was crossing the road, it's really busy most of the time. Good lighting for a motel, plenty of power points, good size room & modern, but bed is really hard. Managers did add an extra underlay when we mentioned it.
