Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Wow what a spot! Only happened upon this place by chance, while searching for Accommodation in nearby Levin.

Booking very easy through the Website, with funds deducted from card immediately. Littel operates without a reception - and a Unit Number, Door Key Code and WiFi Password emailed and Text through in the morning of arrival. Also included were Phone Numbers in case any help or assistance was required.

Easy to find, located only one street back from the Main State Highway One drag. Heaps of off street parking, I was able to park right beside my unit. No Dramas using the Key Code to get the door unlocked. I had booked a 1 Bedroom Townhouse Apartment. What a lovely spacious and well appointed apartment. Downstairs is a small living area with a Sofa and Chair with Telly. Dining Table with seating for two, and a small kitchenette with a cook top and everything you'd need to make Breaky or a basic dinner. There is a small patio with outside seating.

Upstairs is a lovely bedroom flooded with natural light through the big windows. Also a bathroom with a large vanity and decent shower. Heaps of Toiletries and extra towels/linen.

Apartment was really warm, with two heat pumps (downstairs and upstairs) and double glazing. That double glazing also helped with reducing the road noise from the highway. Proper concrete walls between each apartment meant I heard nothing of my neighbours.

Lots of nice touches like Whittakers Chocolate, Sky 50+ TV, loads of Tea/Coffee Sachets, and also Toiletries.

2 min walk to the New World Supermarket for supplies.

Everything was very very clean, and just tastefully appointed. I really wish more accommodation in NZ was up to Littel Otakis standard for its price point. The value for money was excellent.

Cannot wait to stay again. Otaki is the perfect location for a stopover before/after Ferry Crossings, or even for visits to Wellington, being less then 50mins away...

We are expats moving back to New Zealand after a long time away. We needed time to search for a house and settle in and Littel Motel proved to be the perfect base for us to do this.

Mark and Anna were extremely accommodating. The two bedroom, two storied unit we stayed in was spacious enough for our many suitcases and various belongings and the kitchen was well enough stocked for us to get by for the seven weeks we stayed. The room was cleaned to a very good standard.

Despite being relatively close to the main road, the motel is very quiet. We also really appreciated the complimentary laundry and outdoor setting. Entertainment was also very good with Sky TV and Netflix so no shortage of things to watch.

We would highly recommend.

Littel Ōtaki is a simply wonderful spot to stop awhile while passing through the Kāpiti Coast on business or for weddings/functions and the likes.

You feel truly at home in this spacious apartment, with gorgeous interiors and all those little finishing touches that only hosts who truly care would take the time to add and round off.

The customer experience is completely integrated, with your access key shared directly to your inbox - and via text message.

This is cost effective by but stylish accommodation - great for families, colleagues, and friends no matter the occasion. A stand out addition to the town of Ōtaki.

Who knew Otaki had such a hidden gem. Littel Hotel Otaki is like staying in an upmarket stylish & modern hotel studio found in a city. We had a wonderful stay, our studio was private, reasonably quiet given the central location, had large comfortable bedding, the shower was huge and bathroom very modern, we had a fabulous lounge & dining area, King bed + a single bed, TV with Sky & Netflix, everything you could need & want. Our friends were jealous! Thanks so much for making our break away for a wedding so enjoyable. Can’t wait to stay there again.

This is a wonderful example of doing the basics incredibly well.
Rooms are spacious..kitchen and bathroom well set up...great furnishings and incredibly quiet.
Check in and room access is via a code sent to you so does away with the need for that paper based check in..was able to request an earlier check-in time which worked like a charm!

Would certainly stay here again.

We booked three seperate rooms for a wedding, and all were fabulous. The owners were very accommodating allowing us to check into each room early, sorting a portacot and being helpful with directions.

Really nice facilities and space - it’s unusual to get such a big living room and bathroom for such great value.

Definitely worth the stay if you’re down Ōtaki way!

This is a well organised setup, from our initial (last minute) booking to receiving the detailed emails giving us everything (including room access and WIFI codes) we needed to access our room. Very impressed how easy they made it. The motel is well located with excellent acoustics to block out the noise from neighbours and the new expressway. Our room was clean, spacious and very well appointed with everything we needed.
Our only complaint (which goes against other reviews here) was the bed, which we found to be very uncomfortable, you could feel and hear the bed springs and if your partner moved you certainly felt it.

We were on a two month holiday from Northern Ireland to NZ, to visit our niece in Otaki over Christmas and the new year. We realised there wasn't sufficient space at our niece's, so looked for accommodation close by.
We normally book hotels through sites such as Booking.com or Expedia, but found nothing suitable. Littel Otaki is not listed on these sites and I can understand why. Mark, Anna and the team have a high end quality accommodation at a very competitive price.
Savings are made by electronic code access to your room without formal check in. Any contact needed was by phone or email, which were promptly responded to.
I have never seen a property (anywhere in the world), that maintains the same daily price throughout the year, with no increase over holidays.
We initially booked a week, but ended up staying 18 nights! It certainly felt like home.
A special thanks to all the housekeeping staff who were all friendly and helpful, especially Holly who we got to know.
We are planning to come back to NZ and will definitely want to stay there again.

Second time I have stayed here in the same unit.
I just love it.
Codes sent to you for entry and WiFi.
Always super clean.
Wee chocolates, great selection of toiletries and good range of teas and coffee.
Situated right behind main road you can cut through mobil to access restaurants, supermarket, great cafes and all the shops.
Visited Antonio's pizza for dinner. Well worth it.
Saturday Market was awesome as well. All within walking distance.
Will definitely be back again.

Outstanding, beautifully presented, spotlessly clean, spacious and great amenities.
Entrance stairs to upstairs room were rather steep to wrangle luggage up, just something to be aware of. Considering Littel was full the day I stayed I was not disturbed by any neighbouring noise, carpark was a little jammed though and couldn't park near my room.
Will definitely be back, this is one of the nicest properties I have stayed at in quite some time, and I regularly stay in motel/hotels for work.
