We took 'pot-luck' by booking this motel earlier in the day. Secured a studio room over the phone. The motel is situated just off Marine Parade in Petone. It was that close to the sea the waves breaking on the gravel beach could be heard. Petone is at the head of Wellington Harbour. 50+ Sky Channels. This was our kick...

The Foreshore is a motel with a cheap feel, but like many accommodation places in Petone is way over priced. It is clean but cold and noisy. It is well located on the seafront and not far from the town centre. The reception was friendly. Stay if you have to.

A nice, clean and basic motel room for a two night stop over in Wellington. Friendly welcome by staff when we arrived and left. The rooms are old and need updating, but had everything we needed. Staff were very helpful when I needed to wash clothing "out of hours" and assisted with the tumble dryer too. Parking was right outside...

Situated right on the Esplanade [beach right across the road] and 200m to the main street of Petone with plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants. Quick access to the motorways to Wellington city and the Hutt Valley. Clean and quiet.

Recently stayed here for one night (8th November 2015). Picked this location as we had to catch the ferry the next morning with the car and this place was close enough with off street parking. Room rate was really resonable, even though we arrived late and had no reservation. Very close to Wellington (took us approximately 15mins at 7am to...

Easy to find when coming off the motor and easy to get back onto the motorway. Great little cafes and restaurants just around the corner with a paknsave too. All within walking distance.
