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...

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...

Yes I know this motel is very new, and the first comment that comes to mind is "I'm back in Europe again" which isn't a bad thing at all. One really neat touch that stood out was the DVD collection for use by guests.

We had a wonderful stay here in September. Rooms were very modern, warm and we had a lovely view of the water. Great service and we were very well looked after. We couldn't have asked for anything more, it suited all our needs.
