Not as good as the description

Posted Apr 15, 2014
Pros: Good manager
Cons: Heating
Location: Good access to restaurants
The rooms are tired and the positioning of the room meant watching TV was not comfortable as you were sat under the tele.

Very comfy beds, very clean, location great, quiet

We thoroughly enjoyed out stay with Wrights By The Sea. It was immaculately clean, comfortable beds and very quiet which goes hand in hand with a very good experience. Will recommend the motel in future to other people and will certainly frequent it ourselves next time we stay in Kapiti. We play competitive petanque and travel frequently to towns like Kapiti.

cold place to stay

Posted May 29, 2012
Location: Good location
We were absolutely FROZEN. The vertical blinds did not keep out any cold - just channeled it all sideways directly onto our bed. There was only one bedside light. The spa bath was tiny and old. Bed hard, but reasonably comfortable. Not enough towels. In the summer it would probably be perfect, as it had a big deck to sit out on. Table and chairs quite rusty though.

Great for a quick stay

Posted Mar 22, 2012 on Hotels.com
Centrally located near the Paraparaumu Beach, Wright's by the Sea makes a convenient location for a day or two on the Kapati Coast. The rooms provide all of the necessities, but not much else. Ideal for people looking to spend most of their time out and about. Downtown Paraparaumu and the beach are within walking distance, but do not expect ocean views from the hotel. Car park fills up at night, but I was able to get a parking space every time. The front desk was beyond helpful and even prepared my room early for an early check-in! Wifi is not free, but reasonably priced (ask hotel for current rates). I would recommend buying wifi coupons from the front desk instead of entering your credit card, unless you plan on using the service provider frequently. I did have issue with wifi connectivity in my room (#11) towards the balcony, but it worked just fine closer to the front door. Overall, this hotel is perfect for someone looking for a place to sleep and shower after a long day on the road, or out and about on the Kapati Coast. The price was right and the staff members were friendly. I would stay here again.
