Although we had heard the down side of a slightly tired campervan set-up, we found it was perfect for our needs. Even birds singing on packing up for an early morning trip to catch the interislander. The staff were super friendly and helpful in regard to instructions to get to and from the city whilst leaving van in site with...

I only had one night here but I was impressed with the place. The room I had, had a nice kitchen where I could of cooked my own meal, a queen bed on the lower level and walking upstairs I found a 2nd queen bed with a spa bath next to it. I was so surprised. Then I went for...

Stopped for two nights in a camper van , place seemed to feel like an afterthought to the actual motel itself which looks pretty good. Good location for ferry and to get into city. Kitchen facilities ok but the bathrooms weren't very good and need updating. The 10 minute hot water limit in the shower wasn't the best either. Would...

Great place for motorhomes. Just a skip off the freeway and not far from the CBD. 10 minutes drive to the wharf for the Interlander. Buses to and from the city just out the front. Restaurant in the main building of the Inn. Not overly big kitchen. Only a couple of showers and you needed to flick the button for...

This is a family run motel and they are very welcoming and genuinely friendly. The apartments are very clean and comfortable and not too noisy despite being close to the highway into Wellington. The food in the restaurant is tasty and well presented. The big plus to staying here is the close proximity to the Interislander ferry terminal.

I chose this motel for it's location. It meant we didn't have to drive into Wellington and find parking but was an ideal location for reaching the ferry in the morning. I was really pleased with this find. Despite its proximity to the road it was quiet and looked out on a pleasant garden. The staff were very helpful. There...
