Nice place, friendly people but be prepared for the train that runs all night right beside the property! Bring your earplugs!

10/10 Exceptional

Great little place to stay, very clean and quiet with everything you might need in the rooms while you stay. Staff were very friendly and quick to help. Convenient on site parking in a good location that is a close enough drive when needing to go to wellington. will definitely be staying again.

4/10 Fair

the room was clean, tidy and spacious. Problem was the train seemed right outside and room vibrates when it goes which is a lot, and very loud. Under the train bridge homeless people gather to sleep just a stones throw away and could look up to my unit, I felt unsafe leaving to get to my car at night. Shame because otherwise quite nice.

2/10 Poor

The male owner has a bad attitude & he accused us of having extra guest staying over. The microwave smelled like curry. The noise is a problem, the motel is situated next to the train tracks & you can hear the noise from the unit upstairs (footsteps & banging) No wifi.
