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.

Booked this to have a night away from children. The operator was amazing, such complete service and a really lovely guy. The room was clean and perfect for a break away. Will book again when children are a bit older and can cope with not having us for a night.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment after arriving in NZ that afternoon from Australia, into Wellington. It was an easy drive from Wellington - approx. 1.5 - 2 hours. The property is on the older side but is well set up with a full kitchen, own outdoor courtyard, lounge room with a large TV with SKY. Our stay was comfortable and parking was at our door. The motel would be great for a beach holiday with the family as there is plenty of room and it has a relaxed feel about it. The owner Oliver was very hospitable and took me for a tour of the unit and explained where everything was. The only negative was our neighbours who arrived not long after us. We were relaxing and enjoying a drink and nibbles in our courtyard, when a group of blokes arrived into the unit next to us and promptly put the TV on full blast with the footy and came out the back and lit up. Unfortunately we couldn't stay outside as it stunk of smoke and was no longer relaxing. We also had to close our door because the cigarette smoke was wafting into our room. The room rate is realistic and affordable. Apart from the disruptive neighbours, we enjoyed our overnight stay and recommend this motel.

This was our 4th night in New Zealand and finally everything seemed in the right place. Comfortable bed, fully equipped kitchenette, spacious bathroom and great selection of channels in cable tv. We wished we could have stayed longer than 1 night, but we had to move on with our NZ trip :)

Chose this motel because it wasn’t too far north of Wellington after arriving on the InterIslander ferry and it’s positive TripAdvisor reviews. Met the owner Oliver on arrival. He was very welcoming, even handing us chocolates. Our studio room was tiny and quite dated. It was clean and reflected the budget rate charged. There was everything you needed in our little room ie new microwave, jug, toaster etc. Great. Bed was a little lumpy and I found it difficult to get comfortable. However it was the unintended noise from the adjoining units that was the deal breaker of our stay. You could hear thumping when guests simply walked around their room, loud creaking of closing doors, flushing of their toilet etc. Our neighbours were considerate, but the building itself is just old and needs upgrading/soundproofing. Location of motel is fabulous. Short walk to beach and eateries.

We were staying here for a few days break from Wellington and so we could actually be at the beach at 815am for our trip to Kapiti Island. We had a one bedroom apartment with three single beds in the bedroom for the kids, and a king size bed in the main room for the adults. There is a decent sized table and chairs, a big TV, and comfortable couch, and a well stocked kitchen. The bathroom was a wet bathroom but really well designed in that the shower curtain actually stopped the water from going all over the floor (so that later you could go into the bathroom without having wet feet or socks). The price is good and the service was friendly.

Arrived unannounced due to an unforeseen overnight trip. Greeted warmly by the Belgian host and got given chocolate, bottle of milk (for tea/coffee) and was immediately checked into my room. All amenities provided, very clean, quiet and comfortable. Fantastic high pressure hot shower !!! The host even borrowed me their phone charger for the night and gave many good restaurant recommendations in the area. Would stay here again 100%.

We stopped here on the way to Kapiti Island. The motel is located 10 minutes walk from the meeting place for the trip and we were allowed to leave our car at the motel for the day that we spent on the island, which was nice. The motel has all the standard amenities, there are restaurants in the walking distance, plus a big supermarket about 5 minutes drive. There are a few places of interest in the vicinity of the motel other than Kapiti Island (e.g. Southward Car museum, which we visited as well).
