Stayed for one night prior to catching a early morning flight. Found staff to be somewhat unhelpful and the room to be pretty dirty. There was thick grease/dust around the microwave and the beds did not have a top sheet. The room smelt bad and the beds were very uncomfortable. However it is next door to park and depart service...

We have just come home from a 3 day visit to Wellington to watch a sporting event at the Kilbernie Aquatic Centre. The location of the Airport Motel was ideal for this. We had no vehicle so its closeness to the airport was ideal - they offer a free shuttle service, we didnt use this as we were happy to...

This motel is close to the airport and is very convenient for travelers staying a few days. The bus stop is less than a block away, a great restaurant is a few blocks away to the east. Shops and a discount store are across the street. The bus will take you into the city central area and is a beautiful...

When booking I was informed about a hotel shuttle from the airport. But despite booking a shuttle in advance I had to wait 45 minutes to be picked up, after 2 phone calls to the motel. The driver said the first message was not passed to him. The hotel is well located but for the price I paid I thought...

Stayed 2 nights. On the plus side is large bathroom, close to the airport, close to some good eating, a stones throw from the beach and friendly staff. On the negative very small rooms, no air conditioning, very noisey on the ground floor, the sheltered car park is used for smokers meaning groups gather drinking and smoking. OK for a...

If your are short on time this is a great place to stay so that you don't have to deal with too much traffic on your way to the airport. Check in is fast and efficient without any dramas and there is under cover parking.

The airport motel is perfect for a before flight stay. The rooms aren't huge and you certainly wouldn't want to be spending much time in them. We had two kids who were a little cramped in such a small room, so despite the wet and windy weather we ventured out across the road to the Warehouse for some breathing space....

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but is very handy to the airport. Bathrooms are a great size, but let down by the very uncomfortable mattress. Was also very noisy being right next to reception with other guests coming and going.

Room a little on the small side, but the place stood up well to the recent earthquake, and the staff were just so amazing and accommodating. Car that was organised by staff turned up both times and was cheap to get back to the airport
