We stayed in a downstairs unit and were able to park right outside. Heaps of parking around the perimeter for upstairs units. The units are separated by a slanted concrete wall so are very private, and also shielded from the railway line nearby. The trains certainly weren't an issue. Our unit was very spacious and clean, (apart from a stray...

We were booked into the family suite which we were disappointed to find it was the conference room with 3 beds in it. It was huge with a kitchen but noisy and would have been very cold. My husband asked if there were any other rooms available and we were moved to a very cosy room which was perfect for...

Perfectly good for what we required - clean room and fresh linen, towels etc. Nice spa jet in bath was unexpected. Our room was quite cold but staff were able to assist and provided an extra heater. Reasonable price for a short stopover and cheaper than staying in Wellington. Easy distance to Mana train which is a short train ride...

We booked in 3rd July for a overnight stay before Ferry crossing to Picton. Found accommodation very clean, and comfortable also convenient to eating places, trains and freeway. I would certainly recommend and stay in future. As we had two overseas guests we were allocated the inter connecting rooms very helpful. We had one of the interconnecting rooms. Our room...

The rooms are quite spacious, and the beds comfortable. We had an upstairs room away from the railway, which happens to be right outside. It didn't affect us, but even so, we could hear the trains. Bathroom was clean and obviously recently updated, it was fine. There was an extractor fan in the bathroom which was permanently running, and it...

I stayed at the Marina Motor Lodge while I was in Porirua and the room was massive with a king bed that was cozy and warm. The staff were friendly and very helpful with my questions about public transport and food places. The spa bath was great and the price of the room was very affordable. I will be staying...

We had just returned from the South Island and as it was dark and raining we needed a bed for the night. Heading north we arrived at the Marina Motor Lodge as it was easily seen from State Highway 1. At just under $100 for a one nights stay, the price was very acceptable. The motel appears to be very...

Clean and near to everything needed. Bed linen and towels nice and clean and fluffy. Staff friendly and helpful. Parking at hand and close to room. A train runs bear by but not too disturbing. But the air venting system in the bathroom ran the whole night long and this we found awful. But as we had had no sleep...

“Our room 106 on ground level faced West and suited us. Upstairs units probably have a sea view, and a wider view of the area.”
