Reviewed 15 July 2014

My two adult girls and I stayed for 7 nights. We found the motel clean and comfortable. While the motel is on a busy road the units are surprisingly quiet. The manager was helpful when asked for assistance. Parking was available the manager told us where we could park if all parks were full and even helped us park our vehicle one night. I would recommend this motel.

My husband & I run a machine importing business & travel a lot. We stayed at this Motel for one night for the first time.
We went into the office where we received a chilling welcome. No smile with an attitude of not being bothered. Handed the key to our room & pointed through the window where the room was & we could park anywhere. When we came back from dinner that night there was no where for us to park. The manager had to move her vehicle which she was not too happy about. Her attitude put a damper on our trip & we will not return there again. The room was clean but the fridge had rust inside & the shower door was dirty. We will not be returning there again & will be mentioning it to our associates, family & friends.

This motel was clean and comfortable but had minimal facilities. There was a bench to make coffee or tea on, but no sink and only a microwave. The staff were friendly on check in. The motel is in a noisy location, but there were also major road works in the area at the time we stayed. Good for a short term stay.

We stayed here three nights as a couple with no car with the intention of having two full days to explore the capital. The motel is very clean, very well equipped and a helpful and accommodating welcome awaits the visitor.

There were two areas where this was not ideal. First the motel is very near a very busy and very noisy road making sleeping with ventilation a problem, certainly for the light sleeper. Second, though there is a bus service very nearby, this motel is not conveniently situated for those with no car. It is not a comfortable and certainly not peaceful walk into the town centre.

Those with a car would not have this problem and parking at the motel is very easy and spacious.

So all in all a mixed review.

Spacious and clean units which were serviced daily., comfortable beds. Even though the motel is situated on a busy road there is no road noise from inside the units. Easy access to wi-fi. Within walking distance of downtown shops, cafes, restaurants etc. Helpful and friendly hosts. I would certainly stay again on any future visits to Wellington.

Managed to move into the Marksman for one night after a dreadful experience at Mercure on Willis. marksman staff were very welcoming and friendly. Room clean, tidy and spacious with everything l needed. Only slightly negative comment is l couldn't access e wifi..even after calling the helpline number the receptionist gave me. Would also ask that shower gel and not conditioner be supplied. Bed comfortable and no road noise noticed. Would certainly stay there again in future.

We booked Marksman Motor Inn as it was close to our venue. Im sure I had booked a two bedroom unit, but had been allocated a one bedroom. There was Me, My wife and our two kids, so a two bedroom would have been perfect. Unfortunatly we had to squeeze the porta cot into a little alcove in the Main room, have our 8 year old in the queen bed and we had to sleep on a very uncomfortable Fold out couch. So this was the first disappointment. BTW Kay (one of the owners) is very helpful and nice, Kevin could learn a few customer service skills. The amenties were average, but not 4 star quality. The coffee in the units was the cheaper quality out of the health pak range. The shower had FANTASTIC pressure and was clean-ish. I was worried that sinse we were on the road side that we would have a lot of road noise with the Marksman being on a main road, but the hush glass or double glazing is a absolute god send and we heard nothing from outside at all - bliss!! And the room was nice and warm!! The kitchen had all the amenites that you would expect, but the cleaning somewhat lacked rather a lot.The area that the jug, toaster and plunger are kept had a lot of dead bugs, food crumbs and dust all over it. A quick wipe when the unit is cleaned would have fixed it. The dishes didn't look like they had been washed properly from the last guest.
Overall we were disappointed with our stay, especially for what we paid.
