Reviewed 29 August 2014

As part of a study group we decided to stay at the south gate an try it out...one night down and we had convinced majority of the class to book in with Southgate!! The hospitality is personal and amazing. After a stressful day there is always one of the lovely staff there waving out the window. The rooms are cosy and the spa bath....amazing!!!

I would definitely return to the South gate and would recommend to other!! Thanks guys for the excellent hospitality!!

Looking forward to finding a reason to return :D

Excellent bus service to anywhere in Wellington...literally a 2-5 min ride on thee bus to the city center. and there are two bus stops within a block from Southgate. Just across the road from the hospital and wellington otago uni campus.

I have spent three weeks at Southgate Motor Inn at Newtown, Wellington and rate my overall experience very highly. Natalie and Dave are kind and friendly hosts. The atmosphere is warm and relaxed. The location is convenient to public transport into the city centre.
The rooms are spacious, well appointed and maintained and extremely comfortable. The bathroom is large. I slept very well on the comfortable king size bed. There is also a big balcony to enjoy the afternoon sun.
I would recommend this convenient location to anyone visiting beautiful Wellington and will definitely stay here again.
Thank you for a enjoyable stay.

This is an ideal place to stay if you need to be close to Wellington hospital as we did this week.
Natalie was brilliant, clearly accustomed to dealing with families of patients. Could not fault the service from her, dealing with different groups arriving and the various necessary arrangements.

The rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable and have great beds with electric blankets, good bathrooms with electric towel rails and functional kitchenettes. These are the things which matter when you are facing stressful times at the hospital. There is a Countdown supermarket within easy walking distance.

Recommended.

I have just spent the Easter weekend at the southgate motels in Wellington so I could be close to my seriously ill partner. The motel was beautifully presented and I slept very well in very comfortable beds. The atmosphere is very relaxed and quiet. And I would totally recommend this motel to everyone

Staying here while My Wife was in Hospital and very handy indeed as just across the road.
Had a top floor unit and a lift is there if needed.Very clean and tidy unit with microwave and a 2 ring stove top and all the utensils you need.
A huge and very comfortable bed and even a balcony to sit outside on a nice day.
I might be nitpicking but a shelf to put shampoo etc on in the shower would be great as it would make it a lot easier for people instead of having to bend down.
For sure a super place to stay and will definitely be back.

This motel is located in a central position handy to the bus system, airport, the downtown area and the hospital. Has excellent well appointed spacious units with a good kitchen. I would stay here again. Good value for the price.
