Felt like this property had been zoomed in from the 1980's - decor is dated and in need of some loving. Rooms were very clean and tidy and the bed was comfy - they just need some loving and a little money spent on them...

Really enjoyed our stay here, we arrived and the check in was very quick, the room was ample for 3 (2 adults, 1 child) Very clean and tidy, the kitchenette was really modern. The hotel is just around the corner from the main part of Paraparaumu, where you can get a bit to eat and walk along the sea front, go to the playground. We ate at ' Fedup' recommended by the hotel - very nice !

Spending the weekend exploring the Kapiti Coast and picked Wrights by the Sea Motel. Received a lovely welcome from the staff on duty who booked us into our delux studio unit all we could say was wow, very tidy, clean, spacious and well stocked kitchen. Highly recommended, value for money, we'll be back.

The Unit ( # 14) we stayed in was nicely laid out; in very good condition and was well equipped....particularly the kitchen area. One issue was that we could hear the next door neighbours talking at 2am. The owners, Frank and Zoe, were helpful and friendly. The motel is close to the sea (3 minutes) and eateries.

Stayed one night as a traveller and had a terrible night. Family living in next door unit made sleep near impossible. We have stayed at lots of motels throughout NZ and this would have to be noisiest. Avoid this place if looking for a peaceful nights rest. Facilities are old and tired and need refurbishment. E.g. No power point for hairdryer. In bathroom rather an old shaver point!! Bed very soft.
