“Free parking handy but bus stop at door.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2011

Handy spot to park if afraid of all the one way streets in central Wellington as Buses within 50 metres of door. Rooms clean & equipped, no noise from busy road, at least on ground floor. Make your decision on the above.
A wander up Riddiford road is not inspiring & even tho Asian/ Indian restaurants are in profusion, they were generally not inviting. In fact we grabbed takeaway. Thought Newtown vicinity quite grubby. Sorry Newtownians. The latter is not meant to reflect on Motel which is the oasis.

Had a very nice stay here. Rooms were well attended to and the cleaners were lovely. I was however slightly disappointed with the reception service given as i did not find them overly helpful/friendly. I was also quite shocked to find that having stayed here for a prolonged period of time and at a decent price a night, i was being charged extra to use the laundry facility most motels/apartments (at this price) have this facility included in the charge.

Compact motel in a centralish location - ideal for visitors to Wellington who have a vehicle and don't watn to pay extra fees for parking. Staff friendly and helpful. Kitchen fully equipped. Handy to hospital and walking distance from Newtown. Would stay here again.

Great motel, very clean with modern units. Great service by owners. Right across road from the main entrance to Wellington Hospital. Good bus services and restaurants very close. No road noise at night. I would highly recommend this motel. 5MB of free wireless Broadband. Very reasonable rates for units.

This motel was booked and paid for by my employer for exam-related purposes at Wellington Hospital. I liked the place straight away. Clean, tidy with heater, adequate kitchenette and fresh milk. Friendly owner who was helpful and allowed me to store my luggage after checking out in his garage. Daily room service even though I was only there for 2 nights. Only downside was not being able to extend out check-out time to 11am due to the cleaners' strict timetables, single beds on wheels, and only 5MB of free internet. Otherwise little to complain about. Right in the middle of Newtown so handy to local shops, restaurants and the hospital. Recommend to others if you are here on business or study.

Thanks for your feedback.

Just a small point. The Free wireless broadband is described on the access homepage as 5MB, but this is the UPLOAD amount. This equates to approximately 20MB DOWNLOAD which is usually amble to check e-mails and a small amount of web browsing.

Having needed some where to stay while a family member was in hospital, I was expectionally impressed with this motor lodge. The owner was very helpful and understanding in what was a very stressful time for our family. The room was very well appointed and one of the cleanest hotel rooms I have stayed in. Location excellent, with great bus service right at the door.

Proximity to Wellington Hospital (right accross the road) was the draw card. The manager (owner?) impressed us with his helpfullness. 2nd floor stairs and balcony are a little narrow as is the shower cubicle but the rooms are very well appointed and very clean. Great restaurants metres away, and a dairy and bus stop right outside make it so convenient. Free undercover parking and very friendly and obliging staff make it a great place to stay.
