Mark, the charming owner, greeted us in a very friendly and professional manner. Our apartment was very comfortable and well equipped. The bathroom appeared as though it was newly refurbished and had an excellent shower. Everything one would need was supplied and the apartment was extremely clean. Our apartment was 3rd floor, double aspect and the one side provided a...

As with most motels we've stayed at in New Zealand, Capital View sets a pretty good standard. The room was of a good size, with a brilliant view of the city and plenty of space for cases, storage etc. Basic microwave/kettle/toaster set up, but there are three or four small stores within walking distance, as well as pizzas from Hell!...

We've stayed at Capital View Motor Inn several times over last few years and always enjoy our stay. Mark and Lorraine are always friendly and helpful, the units are quiet, despite being close to motorways and central city, and always very clean, comfortable and well serviced, with good facilities, there's parking on-site, but the city and museums etc just a...

Capital view is a great place to stay and for the price you can't beat it. We stayed there for a while as we were in NZ to spend time with family who lived close to the hotel. We would only use the place to sleep so we were gone everyday and would come back late to a well cleaned...

This a basic hotel in a good location. We chose this as it had free parking. The gentleman on reception was very friendly and helpful. The entire motel had a very musty smell which was overpowering. The beds were average. The view was great. The bathroom had been recently renovated and was of a good standard. I wouldn't stay again...

Stayed here for 2 nights and it was an excellent location for all we wanted to do, as well as being about 10 minutes drive from the ferry terminal. Large room, good kitchen facilities and small kitchen table, good modern bathroom and very friendly owner and staff. It was only a 5 minute walk to the top of Cuba street...

My honest opinion would be to research alternate hotels. We selected Capital View because we understood it to be convenient to the ferry and it offered free parking. The free parking was a benefit but convenient to the ferry was a stretch. Would not have wanted to stay beyond our two night reservation. Some of the rooms were being renovated...

A no-frills but good value motel. Rooms are clean and tidy. The best point here is the parking and the location. Walking distance from the buzz of Cuba Street, the serenity of the War Memorial and the CBD. Capital value for a capital city :-)

Stayed in this motel for one night and wouldn't return. The room smelt grubby. The shower was very strange it had restricted entry and you need to be 5ft or less to be able to wash your hair without bending your knees! ! The lift only goes to the first floor out of reception hours so you have to carry...
