We had room # 8. The size of the room was different than photo shows - quite deceiving and small. We arrived to a note on the door saying to ring the owner (not great if you don't have a phone or can make free landline calls). When we opened the door to the room it stunk of old wet socks (or similar) and the fan was going (not actually hot outside so presume this was going to perhaps mask the odour in the room, which it didn't do). The free breakfast was already in the room on a tray (continental) - not sure I liked it sitting there all afternoon and night. The bed was flat and not that comfy. Under it was an empty food packet which, if I could see it from the toilet, then the cleaner should have seen and removed it. The toilet brush container was extremely rusty - hate to think I sit on a toilet that is cleaned by something inside this awful container. Inside the spa bath were black hairs. Trying to tilt the jug to fill with water from the bathroom sink - not good and as far as I'm concerned, not good practice. Waking up in the morning and not being able to open the curtains to let the light in - no net curtains to stop people going past from looking in. When we first drove up to the place, the first thought was 'is this a motel or the bronx'? The whole area around it is awful to look at so it does not make you glad you arrived. This is not a cheap place to stay so based on that, and what you get (or don't get) for your money, I would not stay here again and definitely would not recommend it. The owners need to either lower the price or tidy the place up. For starters, It's not expensive to get a good toilet brush.

When we booked we specifically asked for a quiet unit.We were told that there were no units above us and we would be in a quiet part of the complex.This was completely wrong.....there was a unit above us and we could hear that resident's every footstep and guitar strum...plus their dog running around.We had arrived at 6.30pm and couldn't find any replacement accommodation, so we had to stay the night.We moved out the next day (we had originally booked for 2 nights) to Wrights By The Sea Motel....which was an excellent place to stay. On the plus side, U Studios was clean and tidy;close to the beach and eateries...And Bijal, the Office Manager, was helpful and quickly arranged a refund for the night that we did not stay. Bijal

Great location near the beach and with food and drink options next door. Has everything you need for a comfortable stay. I would recommend as a base for exploring the Kapiti and Wellington areas. I would certainly stay again.

I booked this because it was one of the few that were pet friendly that I could find and we were traveling with our two dogs. When we arrived I thought it looked quite untidy. But it seems it's in the middle of alterations. Our room was very tidy and even came with a spa bath. Parking was very good considering we had two cars and a boat. And the chap at reception was very pleasant. This place is very good value for money and would not hesitate to stay again.
