Capital view is a great place to stay and for the price you can't beat it. We stayed there for a while as we were in NZ to spend time with family who lived close to the hotel. We would only use the place to sleep so we were gone everyday and would come back late to a well cleaned...

This a basic hotel in a good location. We chose this as it had free parking. The gentleman on reception was very friendly and helpful. The entire motel had a very musty smell which was overpowering. The beds were average. The view was great. The bathroom had been recently renovated and was of a good standard. I wouldn't stay again...

Stayed here for 2 nights and it was an excellent location for all we wanted to do, as well as being about 10 minutes drive from the ferry terminal. Large room, good kitchen facilities and small kitchen table, good modern bathroom and very friendly owner and staff. It was only a 5 minute walk to the top of Cuba street...

My honest opinion would be to research alternate hotels. We selected Capital View because we understood it to be convenient to the ferry and it offered free parking. The free parking was a benefit but convenient to the ferry was a stretch. Would not have wanted to stay beyond our two night reservation. Some of the rooms were being renovated...

A no-frills but good value motel. Rooms are clean and tidy. The best point here is the parking and the location. Walking distance from the buzz of Cuba Street, the serenity of the War Memorial and the CBD. Capital value for a capital city :-)

Stayed in this motel for one night and wouldn't return. The room smelt grubby. The shower was very strange it had restricted entry and you need to be 5ft or less to be able to wash your hair without bending your knees! ! The lift only goes to the first floor out of reception hours so you have to carry...

Easy to find from the airport. Close to the War Memorial which was our reason for the booking. For the price it was just ok. Very clean but tired and in need of a bit of an update. Our host was very helpful and put right our 1 complaint immediately. The housekeeper had been in while we were out....we were...

Had a great stay at this hotel. Mark the owner was very pleasant and helpful. The room had been renovated and was comfortable and warm. Amazing value. The only issue was the complimentary wifi was a little temperamental.

They do have car parking which is tight and the place seems like an old timeshare which has seen better days. Short walk to Cuba street where there are lots of restaurants/cafes and not far from waterfront. Sizable rooms even if strangely furnished with pretty old furniture. Guy on front desk a little different and probably doesn't love his job....
