Accommodation near ferry at Wellington

Hi We will be flying in to Wellington around 2pm and will be taking an early morning ferry to Picton next day. Will be staying in Wellington overnight.

Could you please suggest accommodation (B&B or hotels) near the ferry at Wellington and how to reach from the international airport; public transport preferred.

Rydges or the Ibis are probably the closest hotels. The Airport Flyer bus stops close to both hotels.

Thanks Selsy.

I checked the rates for these two and unfortunately both are over my budget :-( Any other places?

Best way to reach your accommodation will depend where you end up staying, but the Airport Flyer will be your cheapest $9 one way into the city, if there are 2 or more of you you might be better off booking (or getting from the airport) the Super Shuttle you pay a flat fee of $18-22 for the first person and then $6 for each additional person and its a door to door service so you don't have to concern yourself with getting from a bus stop to your hotel with your bags etc.

We are planning to stay at Kingsgate Hotel, Hawkestone st. Will airport flyer be cheaper to reach this venue? How much will a taxi cost?

The flyer would be $9 to the railway station, and then it would be a ~500m walk slightly uphill. Taxi should be $30-40 depending on time of day.
