I had a comfortable stay at the motel. The interior is quite new and clean. The lady at the counter is very nice. A drawback of the motel is the lack of a zebra crossing to the opposite mall and town center.

The service from the old lady who answered the phone was the worst I have ever experienced. She was unhelpful about assisting with my booking and said I needed to read the fine print and have credit card. When I explained what happened she said it was my fault - yet I have stayed at many other hotels in Wellington...

Great convenient, quiet and comfortable. Easy from the motorway, great parking, close to shopping centre, large quiet room with great amenities and comfy bed. Lots of light which made working from the room very pleasant. Will be my first choice for business.

I had the unfortunate experience of staying here. When I first arrived, the owners were very friendly and accomodating. Although within 10 minutes of arriving I received a very nasty phone call (I must mention I have spent 5 years in customer service and try to always be friendly and approachable). I remained friendly, although their attitude did not change...

I was very happy with the whole stay. It was great to have a family room that accommodated for a family of 5, we didn't have to ask for extra towels or plates etc as we have had to in many places. We booked for 5 and had everything we needed in the room. It was also great to not...

Best thing about this motel is its location, only 100m from the Porirua Town Centre and right on the ring road, Considering this it's surprisingly quiet, especially the first floor rooms which face the bush-clad escarpment. Big rooms, reasonably well fitted-out and clean. Ideal for business travellers, a big desk to do your homework on, and extensive parking area right...

Stayed here many times in the past and was greeted by friendly staff. Under the new management this is not the case. Stay here if you want to be abused by a rude, grumpy man who essentially told me that they don't want business because they are full enough when I arrived at 10pm due to a late flight.

We arrived in Porirua by rail after traveling from Aukland to Wellington on the KiwiRail Northern Explorer. Amethyst Court Motor Lodge was easy to find. The receptionist was very welcoming and helpful. We had asked for a quiet room and it certainly was. No people or traffic noise contributing to a good sleep experience in a comfortable bed.The room was...

The motel is ok, rooms are clean and big enough. I stay here the night before I had to get on the inter islander ferry, so was only really looking for a comfy place to rest up. While motel was fine the surround area is not great and pretty much run down. I found the front desk staff to be...

A modern motel with comfy rooms. Very clean. Tea and coffee making facilies, a large fridge and a microwave. The bathroom is large and complete with pleasant soaps and shower gels. The lady at the front desk was also very pleasant.
