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.

This is a really nice motel, very friendly and efficient owners and it has lovely amenities including a spa, swimming pool and is very close to town and all Upper Hutt's facilities, including restaurants, takeaways, the Cosmopolitan Club etc. The rooms are spacious, well furnished and decorated and have good bathroom facilities. Good parking and out of hours access from the car park. We didn't use the breakfast facilities offered by the motel owners but there is a cooked breakfast option available we believe. We have visited friends staying in this motel before when they came over from England and they were also very pleased with the accommodation and facilities.

We have stayed at Hawks Inn several times over the past few years when visiting Upper Hutt. While the motel has been around for many years, the room and facilities were very clean and well appointed and had a comfortable bed. The room was serviced daily.
Office staff were very obliging and met out request for a front, top floor unit.
Centrally located and quite.Will certainly be staying when in Upper Hutt again

This motel is advertised as a premium motel. Definitely not . It seems most units are taken by permanents or subsidised. Room stunk of disinfectant, so much so that we had to open all the windows. Pool filled with kids in clothes jumping in and very noisy.
Thankfully it was just one night. Would never stay here again. Not value for money, very tired and noisy. Only good thing was the location.

Have stayed here many times before, always someone plesant there to greet you, answer your questions etc. Now at night, no manager is on the premises & nobody answers the landline/reception. No semblance of customer service. A LOT of emergency housing this time too. Unpleasant & did not feel safe. Room clean. Spa not usable for last several years. Steer clear, will not come again.

I stayed in this property for four nights and on the first night of our stay the electric blanket caught on fire, burnt the bed and my arm. We were promised payment for medical expenses by one of the owners and upon leaving this never happened. I now have a huge amount of scars to my arm and have been advised by my doctor that there will be restricted movement in my wrist. Owners were a great help... but still not really good enough.
While the property itself is good, and the facilities reasonable from the prospective that myself, my husband and my three children could have quite easily been killed in thisr motel, on reflection I think that the quality of care received wasnt good enough. As I said on departure the rest of our stay was very good, but this doesnt take away from the fact that i will now have life long effects from a fire that happened at this motel whether your fault or the manufacturers fault, i am the one left with the scars.

I was going to attend the all blacks game but instead I had to goto a funeral
The good people here still charged me full price. I actually can't believe they did. It was a shock to me and my family
Wow :(
You expect people to be at least somewhat understanding

Firstly I am very sorry for your loss. You did not contact me either on the day of check in or the next day to inform me that you would not be arriving. I charged the card in line with our terms and conditions which state 48 hours notice is required to cancel a room, this was also booked through an online website and we were charged commission for your reservation. The night of the All Blacks match we were full and I had turned many people away who were looking for accommodation, had I known you were not intending to use the room I would have sold it to someone else which would have resulted in you NOT getting charged.

We stayed 5 nights and it was great. Caroline and her family are wonderful - very friendly and they really do go the extra mile. We had a lovely 2 bedroom unit and it was well equipped. Nice and quiet which surprised me being right on a busy road. Handy to town. We were there with 2 young kids and there was no problem with them sleeping and housekeeping were so quick getting in at appropriate times to give the room a great clean. Also great that we could use the cot and highchair. Highly recommended. Caroline - our little girl still loves 'horse' that your daughter gave her - a real favourite - so kind. We now live in Upper Hutt and we would not recommend staying anywhere else.

Recently stayed at this place room clean and tidy .. but it had a horrible feel to it and service was none existent ..
I was there on business arrived about 6.30 7 pm to office note on door saying what room.. an email welcome would have been better or txt.. internet didn’t work aand I rang the next day ... left message no reply .. absolutely appalled still not heard days later..
place felt more like council housing estate ..
Definitely don’t recommend staying here
Paths cobbles dangerous health and safety issue no security light come on in the early morning or night ..
I will be taking this further with management who so far have failed to contact me
Like another review it appears permanents stay there..
absolutely not an executive motel or anything close False advertising
I have given them the opportunity to contact me and still have not done so
I want a partial refund ...

We stayed here during the British Lions tour 2017 when the Lions beat the All Blacks in Wellington!!!

Hotel was clean and tidy and ok for what we required. Hotel I slightly dated and could do with some updating. Location was slightly outside Upper Hutt center. Train station was a couple of ministers walk, you can catch train and be in Wellington in around 20-30 minutes.

There's a pool and hot tub at the hotel. They also offer breakfast delivered to your room for extra cost.
