A room was booked for three nights. At the time I was told that the only room left was the larger deluxe room at $125.00 per night. The room provided was satisfactory, but quite small. When compared with other rooms, it was obvious that we have been given a lesser room than we had paid for. Late in the second...

BEWARE- THIS PLACE HAS HIDDEN FEES. Paid $115 for a room through AA. It was chosen for convenience as I only needed a bed to sleep in for 6hrs. Advised at the time I wouldn't check in until 12.30 am on 26/4. Despite trying to confirm the booking well ahead, the motel only replied at 8pm the night before. Advised...

This motel is old and shabby - badly in need of bringing up to date. Tried to check in early and were told we could - but then the room was not ready when we arrived. Asked for an iron - was presented with an ancient iron with a dirty sole plate and an ironing board that collapsed and could...

We stayed here for one night before an early flight. I was not expecting much as the price was low but it was worse. As another reviewer mentioned there was mildew everywhere in the bathroom. It was noisy and I did not sleep a wink as I didn't really feel safe there. The owners were lovely I will say that...

Mildew on the ceiling in the bathroom in # 6. I would have gone somewhere else, except... I booked this place to stay during the 2013 Sevens! By the time I realized my mistake it was too late to find another hotel. I based my decision on their pictures (MISTAKE!). I was foolish and got cheap at the end of...

We were six in number looking for a good priced motel in Wellington...very hard to find. Basic facilities, clean and close to bus stop into town, extremely friendly and helpful owners. A very good option for families, but if you want a relaxing pampering holiday this is not the motel

My girlfriend and I had a fantastic stay at 747 Motel. The room was recently renovated and modern, clean and had everything required for a short stay. We stayed initially for 3 nights, and enjoyed it enough to stay the extra night while we looked for long term accommodation in Wellington as we had just moved here (Johnny was extremely...

I enjoyed my stay at 747. Johnny and Summer are very helpful. The location is great. The new kitchens and bathrooms are very nice. Buses are very handy to motel 747 and the Kilbirnie shopping centre is also very close. The Tvs were very modern. During my stay I was also able to enjoy many beautiful walks around by Greta...

We stayed one night in this motel. Easy parking, close to shopping centre and bus stop makes this a great location. Good value for money, our room was clean and comfortable.
