Southgate Motor Inn

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 October 2017

I was in Wellington needing surgery and staying at the Southgate Motor Inn made perfect sense.

The room was perfect, very well maintained, and had one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in.

Great customer service as I left an item in the room and the management rang to let me know that they had found it.

We stayed one night when we traveled down for mu daughters 21st. Rooms are very spacious, good location and rooms are very quiet.
Lots of options for food etc within walking distance and just a $10-$12 Uber ride from Lambton Quay.
We found it much more affordable staying here than in the CBD with no minimum nights required over the busy WOW weekend.
Rooms are clean, very comfy beds and we wouldn't hesitate to stay again.
Friendly welcoming hosts.

We (2 adults, 2 teenagers) are staying here for two nights while travelling NZ from Australia.

Our 2 bedroom apartment is spacious and clean, as is the bathroom, which includes a spa bath. Kitchen facilities allow for self-catering, and laundry facilities are available to use for only $5 (we have clean clothes again!). Wifi is also provided (great for the teenagers).

Located opposite Wellington Hospital and close to shops and public transport, Southgate has been ideal for us. While we have a rental car, we haven't used it since we arrived as Supermarkets are within walking distance as is the bus stop. We caught the bus into the main part of the city today for $22 return (for the 4 of us - much cheaper than NSW public transport).

I would recommend Southgate as a great place to stay

Stay here while having to work over the road at Hospital. Was allocated a nice unit with twin bedrooms. Unit was large with a Spa bath and reasonably modern.

No Air Con - heating was supplied by a fan heater. Flat screen TV smallish.

Over all a nice stay

I stay at the Southgate monthly whilst having medical treatment in the Hutt and have done so for nearly two years. It is in a great location with several ethnic eating places nearby. I cannot fault this motel. David and Natalie are great hosts and always most obliging. I normally stay in a downstairs unit which is large and the beds are very comfortable. I know there is an internal lift as have on some occassions stayed upstairs.

Room Tip: I prefer the unit facing the road. Sunny in the morning
