we were looking for accomodation nearby Wellington airport as we arrived on a flight just after midnight local time and wanted to travel on to our destination after a good nights rest. The Airport Motel was a convenient location, being only 5 minutes from the airport in our hire car (the motel does have shuttle or taxi arrangements if you...

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

Booked a night here before an early morning flight to Auckland. The room itself was basic but more than adequate. Large shower and bathroom, and having a microwave and frig in the room was great. Only downside was the mattress was pretty worn and approaching it's end of life. But I have to say, the woman who checked me in...

Location was the key for me. Airport right next door and staff were friendly. Room adequate size. Cleanliness was great. Bathroom perfect size for me- need a big shower! Great cafes that were in walking distance.

I didn't have high expectations however was underwhelmed with the tired linen. No hot water in the morning was approached by management without any appearance of urgency at 7:30 in the morning - we had a full day ahead of us and cold showers are reserved for bush camps! Although close to the airport, the first morning flight landings didn't...

We had a very comfortable night here prior to an early morning flight. It's ideally situated. The room was perfectly adequate with a great spa bath. The staff were really helpful and even came to pick me up from the car rental place after I had dropped the car off. Excellent service.
