Couldn't fault the cleanliness - it was spotless and the bed was nice and comfortable. The staff were pleasant and help. Nice setting as some rooms have a lovely view of the beach. The studio room had a well equipped kitchen.

Cleanest and most well equipped and comfortable room we have stayed in in a long time (and we usually stay in the fancier hotels in the CBD). Great location and beautiful views. We were in Room 8 on the ground floor facing the road and then those stunning views and trafffic was certainly not an issue. Fabulous staff from cleaners... More

Arrived absolutely shattered from a 10 hour or so drive, the manager was very helpful with all our needs upon arriving. Room was down the very secure card access (past 10pm) hallway past reception, with entry to the room via a keycard as well. Very secure which is awesome. Room was very spacious with a nice size kitchen, no oven... More

We chose the accommodation for its location as we were attending a seminar in Petone and the motel was midway between the seminar venue and the railway station and close to the main street. The welcome, late in the evening, was warm and friendly and this continued on a couple of occasions when we met the manageress during the day.... More

I have stayed here on many occasions when working at Saeview Marina which is about 5 minutes drive away. Jackson street is literally a 5 minute walk up the street and there are numerous restaurants, cafes and bars to get a meal, coffee or a drink. I like this place as it is close to everything this side of Wellington.
