I booked this hotel at short notice just before a long weekend. It is 20 minutes from Wellington and close to shops and eateries in Petone. A true 3 star motel, the room had beds, a fridge with enough milk for coffee and tea, and a small kitchenette. There was not a lot of room for a family of 4,...

Great place to stay, we had a studio with a queen bed and a single bed. The room had plenty of space for two adults and a toddler. Room had been done up, new carpet, modern bathroom, had a heat pump and heated room really quick. Nice people and walking distance to train station. Great value for money.

Unfortunately our stay wasn't the best. We arrived late as our plane had been delayed, and then our luggage was delayed. When we did eventually arrive - there was a muck up with our room. When we did get into a room, all the windows were open and it was beyond cold in there. All the beds were damp, and...

We stayed here for two nights (4 adults/1 child). Lovely 1 bedroom Unit with kitchen. Had everything we needed, clean and comfortable beds. Friendly and helpful staff & good location, 12 minute walk to train station with an easy commute to Wellington. Supermarket & restaurants about ten minute walk. Enjoyed our stay and would recommend to friends and family. :)

Although our family unit was dated it was clean and tidy. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen well set out. The bathroom with walk in shower was great. I would recommend to someone needing a family room

The room was tidy and had average facilities. The bathroom was musty and needed open window entire stay. I would suggest a Bathroom heater to keep it dry. Electric outlets in kitchen were sparse. Big puddle outside where loading car in rain was not nice.

We stayed one night and we were glad we moved on the next day. It wasn't terrible, but we've stayed in cheaper, better motels in New Zealand. The man at reception was rude to my wife when she went to ask about the wifi and extremely unhelpful and unwilling. When I went to check in, I stood in reception for...

We stayed in an upstairs "executive" room, I believe the difference is a desk and a recliner chair in the room. The room was clean, largish with a kitchenette, desk with USB and ethernet points, and ironing board and storage space. Comfortable bed. The bathroom was nice and very clean and had the most towels I've ever seen in a...

I booked a two day stay. I advised reception I would check in a little bit early, which they advised was fine. On my arrival I rang the bell at the reception but no answer for about 20mins. A bloke came out and was like "ring ring ring what is the problem". I was surprised at the service. Our room...

When you said you would check in "a little bit early" (normal check in noon) I was not expecting you to turn up at 8.30am on New Years Day. You're right, I was'nt that friendly. Obviously the room had'nt been cleaned at that time of the day as you were advised. When we wanted to clean it we were told...

Had a nice stay at the DuPont. Out of the ordinary quiet. Didn't hear you're neighbors cough or any noises that would interrupt your peace and quiet. Prices were (reasonable) in relation to the Holiday. Good espresso coffee machine in the lobby should you need it. Not the machine, the espresso. Free daily paper and a furry friend greets you...
