I agree with the previous reviewers - decor dated and tired but very clean & comfortable & the shower is great! Traffic is very noisy but although I usually find noise a problem it didn't stop me sleeping at all. We had a lovely meal at the curry town Indian restaurant which is 20 minutes walk from the motel in...

Enjoyed our relaxed stay here in the pretty semi-rural setting behind units, albeit close to the main road. Yes, the rooms are old and could do with a revamp, but everything else about this place was great, including friendly staff and free Wi Fi and Sky TV, and we would come here again....

This is a nice small motel complex on the edge of Otaki township on state highway one! Clean and comfy, although a little dated in the decor department. A little traffic noise in the front flat, but not a big issue. Plenty of parking too. Staff are friendly. You can walk into the center of town for 3 good cafes...

As others have said the rooms here are simple but fine and the shower excellent. The reception guy was very pleasant but in-room service was a problem the night we stayed and both places he recommended to eat were closed (this was at 7pm). There's an Indian restaurant but we had takeaway fish and chips. Beds etc were comfortable but...

The decor is a bit dated at this motel but the room was immaculately clean and the owner/manager was super friendly and helpful. I've read other reviews that complained about traffic and train noise but I can honestly say it wasn't an issue at all. The Unit was clean and tidy and well set out and the beds were comfortable:...

Has all amenities, food, warmth, good ole NZ fish and chips: The motel manager, polite made sure you had all amenities. Private with trampoline for children, nice green grass to play on. Price for room affordable and the shower pressure was bliss. Very good bargain, and totally enjoyable stay. Definitely be going back!!

Recently needing somewhere to stay in Otaki we crossed our fingers and booked Otaki Motel. Definitely value for money at a reasonable price, very pleasant lookout on lawns, trees and seating area. A trampoline for children. Best of all, spotlessly clean and a good shower with plenty of hot water.. Would be happy to stay there again. My only mild...

Have stayed before to shop the outlet shops in Otaki. Location is brilliant - a 2 minute walk to shops. Motel unit very dated and very basic but comfortable and clean and has all that's needed - apart from wifi - apparently doesnt work so well in end unit. What I found a little surprising was the fact that the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are a small family run business who provide great value accommodation in Otaki. We are situated just a one hour drive from central Wellington and the Interisland ferry terminal. Our goal is to provide great value accommodation to local and international tourists at the same time as creating employment in Otaki.Otaki is a great place to grab a coffee on the way through to Wellington, or to do some discount shopping at one of the many retail stores. We love housing people visiting the region for weddings and family events. Many of our guests are Kiwis from different parts of New Zealand, but we love to meet international people as well. ... more   less
