Had a lovely stay, they went out of their way to accomodate us, clean lovely rooms, comfy bed with plenty of soft blankets for a cold day, decor so lovely and bright! Good facilities, did I say very friendly and welcoming!

I stayed at B-K's Esplanade for one night. I was greeted by a very friendly receptionist, shown to a very clean and comfortable room. The bed was comfortable, shower pressure was great. I recommend this motel to anyone that I'd on a bit of a budget. True value for money.

Moved here after a less than satisfying experience in another Petone motel. There really was no comparison. BK's is a modern well appointed motel on the seafront and within easy walking distance of the Jackson Street restaurants and cafe's. Well worth considering for your Wellington stay

I would recommend this spot! It's super convenient, and in a great location. The staff went out of their way to help me find a good room that would work for my family. I was really impressed with the service and location.

What a great place to stay: large rooms just across from Wellington harbour. The rooms are immaculately clean and well laid out with a kitchenette, recliner chairs and DVD player. There's a DVD library and gym on site and the place is a brief walk from Jackson street which has great restaurant and cafe selections.

Good quality accommodation is hard to find in New Zealand. I was really surprised at the quality of this motel. Away from the main cbd - the location is stunning with great views of the Petone Esplanade and near Jackson street with cafe, restaurants and a pak n save close by. Rooms are well appointed, modern and quite spacious. Housekeeping...

Just an awesome Motor Lodge near the beach in Petone. It had just changed owners when I arrived in May 2016 and they were very friendly and helpful. We booked a one bedroom room and were given a north facing room with a balcony (no sea views). In May that was awesome as we had most of the sun shining...

Very clean, love the selection of dvds. Lovely sea view. Love the balcony. Awesome place to stay. Only down side was the sheets on the bed hoe the bed was made could be improved. Very thin sheets and no duvet.

Couldn't fault the cleanliness - it was spotless and the bed was nice and comfortable. The staff were pleasant and help. Nice setting as some rooms have a lovely view of the beach. The studio room had a well equipped kitchen.

Cleanest and most well equipped and comfortable room we have stayed in in a long time (and we usually stay in the fancier hotels in the CBD). Great location and beautiful views. We were in Room 8 on the ground floor facing the road and then those stunning views and trafffic was certainly not an issue. Fabulous staff from cleaners...

“Ask for a North facing room during winter you will miss the cold southerly winds and also maybe lucky enough to get the morning sun.”
