Comfortable Motel

Location: Only a 10min walk to the local train station, with the train ride taking about 50mins straight into Wellington. About a 5min walk to a 24hr service s
Room was clean on arrival and the smell of disinfectant was evident (which was good as this meant it had been cleaned properly). Bed was quite comfortable. No road noise. Manager was very accommodating with regard to our booking.

Needs some work

The rooms were in need of a refresh. The price was excessive compared with the quality.
