Perhaps we had the worst room in the place (819) but the manager wouldn't change us to one of the larger rooms. The space was way too cramped for two adults and two suitcases. But even with the larger rooms, there would be noise from the traffic all night. There is no air-conditioning so one has to keep the window...

This motel is well situated in the interesting town of Petone. The motel is smart and recently decorated with above average bathroom etc. There is plentiful parking and we used the gym which was also good. There are plenty of good restaurants nearby in the historic Petone high street.

We stayed in a one bedroom unit that had a Queen bed in the living area and 2 single beds in the bedroom. As well as having the bed in the lounge there were 2 lounge chairs so somewhere to sit when watching TV at night. Not a huge area though for 4 people. The motel complex is quite new...

We stayed here for 5 nights and highly recommend it. From start to end it was a breeze. All the staff were welcoming and friendly (including the cleaners who did an awesome job) the room was big and comfortable and very clean. Petone is a gem. We were staying for the quick vicinity to Wellington city but discovered some lovely...

I have a pet hate.. the door key that operates the power stops me going out and charging my laptop at the same time. Don't be tight.. let me use an accessible power point when I am not in the room.. I also HATE double beds that are really 2 singles. The ridge in the middle is so uncomfortable. The...

We had an upstairs room looking out over the sea. The day was grey but the view still wonderful. We had everything we needed in the unit and all was of a great standard. The bed was very comfortable. Friendly helpful management added to our enjoyment.

Needed to book a weekend away at the last minute and in a bit of a panic. Helpful receptionist did everything she could to make things work for us. We had a one bedroom unit, upstairs. Although we didn't have a sea view, we did have a little balcony, so could sit outside. Room was really spacious. Spotlessly clean, lovely...

Stayed here for a few nights as it was close to the office. The location is good, close to the main road and a short walk away from Jackson Street for the restaurants and cafes. The rooms are nice, clean and tidy. It only gets a four as the kitchenette area is not easily usable, and I found the pillows...
