A strangle smell was in the room, full of flies, the smoke alarm was removed, the coffee mugs badly stained, not enough towels in the room - just not very clean. Good location but Very below average!!

Dirty and seedy characters hangin around. Across from the shipyard. It smelled, was dirty and we left without a refund, just wanted out of there! Beware! Gross! It was an old cottage like place. Not the 2 story pictured! Bad choice!

Loved this place, clean, quiet, roomy. Very friendly front desk personnel, too. On the outskirts of Wellington, so less congestion and convenient to ferry for early departures. Would return enthusiastically.

We have stayed here on several occasions over the past few years, however since the new owners have taken over, we have noticed that things are changing. Not only did they put the price up, the high cleaning standard has fallen which is a shame. The upstairs Executive Room is large and ideal. Wi-Fi works well here too. This motel...

If you are looking for a reasonably priced motel with good (15 minutes driving) access to the ferry's for the South Island crossing, then this place ticks the box. Apart from a problem with a mix up on booking 2 rooms for 4 adults, which they sorted as it was their error, it was clean & comfortable and didn't break...

I'd avoid it unless you really are on a tight budget. For not much more, you can get significantly better accommodation elsewhere, even in Wellington proper. The rooms are decent enough (typical 3 star motel) and fairly clean, but it is very noisy. There's significant road noise and, more fatally, you can hear conversations quite clearly from the adjoining rooms....

We did a spur of the moment find a motel booking, and to our delight we were pleasantly surprised at how clean, modern and equipped our room was, absolute value for money!! Our host was welcoming on such an awful blustery night. Only downside there was no out of towners booklet/folder that most establishments provide, for local eateries etc.

We stayed at the Dupont over Christmas while we were catching up with family and friends. We had an upstairs unit which we found very comfortable. It had all the amenities we required and we will no doubt return again.

This is a little oasis in Petone - Wellington lacks great motels (honest aprasial of Wellington ) but the new suites at this motel fit the bill very well for the business traveler - very recommend but suggest booking essential as Wellington generally lacks accomadation space

My family traveled by car from Auckland to Wellington for a short escape. Considering a long driver, I thought that we need a good room to stay in Wellington and found this motel in TripAdvisor. The hotel was easy to find and only 15 minutes from Wellington city centre. We stayed in a quad unit for two nights in this...
