This motel had plenty of free parking, was very affordable, and a great location next to Lyall Bay beach. Ask for a sea view room. The room I had #23 was small, but cosy for one - two people. I was offered a complimentary drink on check in. I would stay here again for 1-2 nights.

Stayed just one night before we flew out of Wellington. Excellent location and free wine and beer on arrival(ask for it if you don't get it) lovely sized rooms and great heating systems. Easy check in with parking on site. Free wifi available, just ask for password.

My daughter and I stayed overnight to catch an early morning flight. The room was very clean with everything we wanted. Greeted with a cool drink of our choice which was a nice touch. The host was friendly and helpful. We would certainly stay again and recommend to others. We also enjoyed a lovely walk around the beach area.

We stayed two nights in what was described as a Family Spa Unit - costing us $398. Started well enough with a prompt collection from the airport at no additional cost and we were able to access our room a couple of hours early. The room has a basic kitchen with cooking hob, microwave, bar fridge and a sink. The...

The location when you have a 6am flight to catch was ideal. The heater worked so well we almost cooked. The spa bath was such a nice touch before heading home. Downsides - tiny and super uncomfortable bed. Pillows are rock hard. Parking a bit of a nightmare when the place is full.

Stayed for one night before flying on to Wellington. We all loved the room loved the free beer on arrival and loved the fact that they drove us to the airport to save us lugging our cases over the airfield.

You can see the yellow paintings of the hotel from your flight. The room looked a bit old. But the good point was, after l booked via booking site this hotel sent me a confirmation email with date, type of room and the price etc - decent hotel. There are hotels which do not show you the price (a receipt)...

The view is great and the free welcome drink really was a lovely unexpected touch but that's no excuse for the rest. "Compact" is a kind description of the unit. There was a Spa bath, which with the view over the beach and airport was what enticed us to book. However the shower was just a wee (low water pressure)...

Our flight meant we had to be at airport for 4:45am >_< so we decided to spend the night here as it's minutes from the hotel. the room was clean, modern (we were in the back area, no ocean view). It was not big but held the queen bed and bunk beds with lots of floor space for our luggage....

I spent one night here, coming in on a very late flight into Wellington. They made sure I had the wifi password and my room was ready for me, even though reception was closed. The kitchenette was equipped with all the basics and complimentary milk and juice for the next morning. While the motel doesn't have a shuttle from the...
