A brief overnight stay before catching the Ferry the next morning. Easy 10min drive to the ferry. Despite this place backing onto SH1 our Room 5 was on the opposite side of the building and gave us a really quiet sleep. There’s no Street frontage to this place as it’s at the end of a driveway, making most things about this place quite relaxed and informal. However the Beds, linen and facilities are really good. Many food outlets within easy walk, I especially recommend the Irish Pub, The Inn Keeper as you receive a 10% discount if you mention you’re staying at this Best Western.

Con - bathroom fan is connected to light switch (personal hate of mine) and the fan needs replacing as its very noisey. Makes the guest reluctant to turn light on in the night as it’ll wake other sleeping guests. Carpet needs a clean too.

I booked the Best Western in Wellington because of its close proximity to the ferry terminal. The location was awesome for this reason--it only took us 15 minutes to make the drive to catch the morning ferry.

The room was very clean and had a heater which we needed because of the cold weather. Our room was very quiet and contained everything we needed. The owners were pleasant and accommodating for our needs. It was great having laundry facilities that we could use since we desperately needed clean clothes.

The hotel is very difficult to locate (use your GSP) and be very careful on the last roundabout. The other drivers are not very patient as you try to locate Burgess Road.

My only complaint is that there were many people cooking food in their rooms at night and the smell permeated the hallway. Luckily the rooms are sealed well enough that the food smells didn't come into the room.

One of us had a minor medical problem. Zoey was wonderfully helpful. Directed us to a local clinic. Things got resolved & back on the road swiftly.

Room was clean, spacious & comfortable. Location was good. It put us north of Wellington traffic to begin the day.

Stayed here just one night. We got a free upgrade. Which was awesome. Zoe on reception you rock. The check in was fast and efficient. Her smiling happy face was a lovely sight for tired eyes.

It is pretty close to the ferry terminal which was great because our ferry was delayed and it was a very choppy sailing and most of our group got seasick... so the fast check in was appreciated.

The rooms were spacious and clean. Lots of towels and toiletries.

Upon check out I saw they had the cookie time buckets I've been looking for. I asked Zoe if they sold them she said no but gave me a bunch for the kids.

Would we stay there again? Absolutely!!!!

Thanks Best Western you are the "Best"

My wife and I were due to stay at this hotel for three nights as part of a round trip of North Island. Unfortunately our studio room faced a very busy road and the noise was a constant source of disturbance. Without air conditioning we relied solely on the electric fan - we certainly could not open the windows with the traffic thundering passed all night. It was a great pity that this hotel failed to meet our needs as the young couple who run the place are clearly trying very hard to do their best for their guests. The room itself, although rather tired, was spotlessly clean. The following morning we were offered a room on the other side of the building but at this point I had booked to stay elsewhere. We were pleased not to be charged for the other two nights.

We checked out two days early and drove up the coast to Wanganui for a much more tranquil stay.
