Recent guest reviews

Awesome experience, nice and clean room , handy location- 10 minutes driving to Wellington town, 5 minutes walking distance to mall and supermarket etc. very kind and helpful staffs . will definitely come back again!

The hotel staff were friendly and helpful on arrival and there is free covered parking which is not the case for many others in Wellington. The room was large but not very clean (still dirt and items on sofa from last guest, some substance spilled on wall next to sofa and beginning to mound) and the supplies were pretty minimal in the kitchenette. Over all it appears to be run and maintained on a tight budget. It will do for a quick over night but for the money I'm sure there are better places to stay in Wellington.

The room was decorated in an attractive manner and contained a few items to use for eating a meal. There were cafes and a grocery store nearby. Everything was clean and well kept. There was plenty of parking.

We stayed in the Best Western for six nights at the end January/ beginning of February. We had a one bedroom apartment on the top floor. We were at the end of the motel - away from the road and found our room quiet. The apartment had a pleasant view across looking across Johnsonville. The apartment was clean and comfortable. It has a small fridge, hot plates and enough utensils to cook breakfast and basic meals. It is in a handy location near a couple of Countdown supermarkets. The local area also has some restaurants and fast food outlets - in case you prefer not to cook. We did not have a car and found that the apartment is close to the train station. We found the trains clean and comfortable. We were able to get tickets on board for the ride into Wellington. The property has a guest laundry and charges $3 for the washer per load and $3 for the dryer per load. The Reception kindly lent us a clothes airer so that we could dry clothes that were unable to go through the dryer. The Reception staff were very friendly and happy to oblige.

Best Western Wellington is a warm and friendly place to stay. Wonderful staff and close to everything you need. Just far enough out of the way so that you are not distracted by outside noise. Easy to get to and wonderful views.

Really impressed! Great friendly staff, Love the old comfort feel with all the photos and original decorating. The food was beautiful and well presented. Thanks heaps guys would definitely recommend and will be back again!

Excellent, polite and helpful staff from arrival to departure along with good, all be it very basic accommodation, make this a good all-round motel. Wellington can suffer with very bad wind, so having basement covered parking out of the wind, especially for our motorcycles, is excellent. A good location near all the facilities you will need, and near Johnsonville station which is a 20 minute ride from Wellington. Also, only 20 minutes from the interislander ferry port. Only thing stopping it from getting 5 is the high price for the basic offering.

We first stayed here 2 years ago and felt it ticked the boxes for us, so we were happy to return. Only overnight this time, as we were driving to Rotorua early the next day in our hire car. So the location, on the northern outskirts of Wellington, suited us just fine. But as the excellent rail service into town is just a stroll away, and who wants to drive / park in Wellington, we found it was convenient for city exploration also, on our previous visit. Undercover parking, excellent wifi, nice room and great bed, good facilities at a very reasonable price all impress, and the hosts are very pleasant. Happy to recommend.

We thoughly enjoyed our stay here. They were so helpful from helping us with some washing to reccormending an awsome place to have breakfast. Definitely will be back again comphy and quite. Thanks 😊😊

When we arrived we asked to change to a quieter room where we could open the windows since there is no air conditioning. We were told that there is a whole side of the hotel facing that busy highway and that unfortunately the hotel was fully booked. We had specified that we needed a quiet room on our reservation and the one we were given was right next to Highway 1 with no air conditioning. So our choice was to either swelter in a hot stuffy room or suffer the very loud noise. It would have been fairer to tell us our request could not be met at the time of booking so we could have booked elsewhere (from 3:00 am the traffic is extremely loud and will prevent you from sleeping even with earplugs) . It is unfortunate because the kitchenette in the room was really well stocked. It was clean and comfy. Wifi was very good in our room and there was parking on the site.
