Nearly All motels throughout NZ include FREE WI FI just the same as they provide free electricity, free water free kichenatte (with everything that goes with it ! ), They are all included in the price of the room. Internet became a basic everyday service just as water, electricity etc. And there is absolutely no reason to charge extra for it. So it would be very nice if this nice motel stop charging for WI FI ($10 for 2 hours...) and provide it as part of the “package״ that is already included in the price of a room.

Pros: Location, clean, great staff
Location: Town centre, beaches near by as well
Friendly staff, comfortable unit . Along side a main road but surprisingly quiet. The best part is the location. Stayed two nights. would stay again

Visiting for the NZ Open at Windross Farm

Posted Oct 1, 2017
Cons: Upgrade the external door to make it easier to open and repaint and plaster the bathroom ceiling
Location: Very handy to Botany Town Centre evening eating etc
I had a studio room for one person. Although the room itself was OK the door needed some CRC or a new lock as I had difficulty opening it. The bathroom ceiling was peeling and need a good repaint. They should also double glaze the windows as my room backed onto a road behind the motel and was quite noisy. I recently stayed at the Travelodge in central Wellington which was less than this and thought that this room was not worth more than that.

Thanks for your review. We are having the doors repaired as the wheels have worn out and ceiling is being repainted. Normally it is quiet around here. You would agree,different locations have variable costs.

Easy access to airport

Posted Jun 26, 2017 on Hotels
Good place to stay, easy to get to airport and visit family, had an issue with door but host sorted, car parking maybe needs a bit of sorting ( when motel was full on one of our nights we had a lady knock on our door (late) and ask if we had double parked behind her) apart from that we had a fabulous stay

Average motel.

Average value for money. Shower poor and lack of bench space and towel rails.
