Review of Hutt City Motel
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 14 Oct 2014
I chose to stay at Lower Hutt because it's close to Wellington and it's cheaper to stay here. Hutt City was an average motel. We stayed in a 2-rooms apartment. Reception was friendly and no fuzz, they get ready our room earlier than check-in time, nice. But once we stepped into the apartment, we realized it's rather small in it, but it's okay for the price we paid. Then we noticed the tap at kitchen couldn't stop flowing, but since it's like dripping, no big deal - we guessed - but when we started preparing dinner, the water started leaking out from under the sink and it became quite messy. The microwave oven was not functioning too. Then we were only staying a short night and left early in the morning the next day, so we didn't bother telling the reception. But I doubt they could have solved the problem at 9pm though.

This is a budget place. Quite old and tired - but cheap. we found it very noisy with the motorway just outside the window. Laid awake for a long time hoping a car wasn't going to take a quick exit.
Didn't see much of the reception but she was friendly when we arrived.

This Motel is what it is a budget place to stay. We appeared to have been upgraded free of charge, which was a nice surprise even if we weren't told, and spent our stay wondering.The room was very clean with a well appointed kitchen however we had to ask for tea towels and dish cloth. The full rubbish skip right outside the door was a little off putting, and there was a funky smell in the room. Which was explained to us as, the room having just been fumigated. A compendium would also have been a nice touch. My biggest gripe was the other guests. Who looked like a construction crew staying long term. These guys had no thought for others and woke us every morning at 6.30 loading their gear. While I appreciate the hosts have little say in guest conduct I would like to think they could have had a word about the early noise.

We booked this for a 3 night stay in Wellington recently, and enjoyed a warm welcome, spotless and comfortable accomodation and real value for money.
It is increasingly difficult to find places that enable travellers to bring the family pooch, and Hutt City Motel were fab.
A warm and sincere welcome from Bev, approachable and helpful service all round. We were not bothered by road noise, and our 2 bedroom unit was a proper home from home to 4 adults and a small dog. No complaints here, will definitely stay again!

We travel a lot. We also have a dog that travels with us.
This motel is perfect as there is a leash free area just across the road alongside the river.
Rooms are spacious and clean.
Staff are super friendly and helpful.
Will stay again next time we are in the area.

The women who works here was so friendly and welcoming. The kitchen is well fitted out with everything you need. Spacious two bedroom unit, perfect for families. Just off main road but not noisy. Short car ride to main lower Hutt shopping area and train to Wellington, which is probably a cheaper option than paying for parking in Wellington.
