“Great service”
Reviewed 28 January 2014 via mobile

We stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed ourselves. Zoe and sunny were unexpectedly great hosts. Much better than your normal hotel receptionists. They wanted to make sure we didn't get lost in the city and even gave us an umbrella to use. We slept on the side with the motorway and it didn't bother us. With the window closed it's not really noticeable. The rooms are clean and comfortable and we received 500mb of data which was enough for our two nights. It was a great location to the picton ferry and an easy 10 min drive into welly.

My family including two children under four stayed here over the Xmas break. We made a last minute booking due to the poor facilities and service encountered at a nearby motel. The rooms were spacious, modern and clean and great value. The service from Zoe & Sunny was outstanding and accommodating for a young family. I couldn't recommend this place higher.

Room Tip: Rooms on the West side are quieter.

My family just spent 3 nights at the BW and we enjoyed ourselves. We picked this hotel due to the great reviews, price, and proximity to the city (about 12 minutes by car).

As we were traveling with a young child, it was quite convenient it have a full kitchen as well as laundry facilities. Also, Zoe and Sunny we're very kind hosts - train/bus schedules, restaurants suggestions (definitely try 1841 down the street - very good food and nice atmosphere), and general advice/questions. This is a very nice family-run hotel and we wish them much more success in the future!

Probably the best motel I've stayed in. Just perfect for my needs. Travelling on business, need to hold business meetings.

The place was incredibly clean, well laid out, spacious, great beds and pillows. The shower worked well, plenty of water and heat. Parking is ample. If I could find a minus it would be I thought they could have a better plunger coffee.

The local eateries and coffee shops are below average. If you're wanting great food and coffee stay in Wellington City. I would definitely stay here again. Great place.

The owners or people running the place are very helpful and looked after me exceptionally well.

Room Tip: The hotel adjoins the motorway. We were on the opposite side. I don't know what the other side i...

Excellent room with loads of space and big spa bath. This motel is one of the cleanest I have stayed in. You can leave your car at the motel and walk about 4minutes to public transport into Wellington.

Stayed at this motel because it is close to the ferry and has free parking, unlike in the city where parking is not easy. The hotel is clean, comfortable and spacious. However, the best part of this motel is the really helpful and friendly new owners who mailed us our forgotten ipad to our next location. They were so nice and didn't charge us any extra than the shipping, even though they went through the trouble of the mailing. Thank you very much Zoe.

We had 2 nights in a 2 bedroom unit. Helen was friendly when we booked and the reception we received on arrival and during our stay was friendly and pleasant. The room was nice, clean and comfortable. We had a room at the end of the hotel so our view was a concrete yard and a neighbouring house. This didn't worry us too much as we were out and about most of the day. It's in a good location, close to the motorway and only minutes from the central city. All in all, a good place to stay and I would recommend it and stay there again.
