Recent guest reviews

Nice tidy hotel. Friendly staff. Would recommend if you staying in Johnsonville. Nice sized lounge area, with two rooms one for the kids, and one for parents. Outside patio area. Good shower. Close to amenities.

Hotel prices are quite high in Wellington and we chose this Best Western because of better prices plus free wifi and parking. The hotel management and staff are extremely nice and allowed late check-out for us. Our room was large and quiet, although the decor is outdated and cheap. There was a kitchenette with cooking/eating supplies, two tv's, work desk, hot plate, etc. There is an on-site laundry available. Room was clean. The location is about a half hour drive from the airport or downtown Wellington, but the hotel is near malls and restaurants itself. We would stay again.

Central Wellington accommodation prices can be quite expensive. I had a rental car for my visit so 15 minutes travel was nothing and there is plenty of covered parking below the motel. Seemed an odd location, but is 2 minutes walk from the main Johnsonville shopping mall, supermarkets, eateries and fast food outlets. Some eateries will charge back to your room too. Staff were very friendly. I was able to arrange a late arrival and instructions emailed were exact and clear. Our rooms were ample all amenities you would expect in a hotel. We had complimentary wifi and Sky tv. Wifi reception was strong and no issues. The bath was spa type and the whole bathroom was clean. There was no air conditioning and as it is Spring, the weather wasn't too cold. A heater was provided and the rooms were nice and warm when we arrive late at night. The reception is located on the first floor (only two floors) which is accessible by a very slow lift or a stairway. Only a couple of things needed attention but our short stay, it didn't bother us. The mattress was a bit saggy on on side which gave my wife a sore back. The other was bathroom air extraction, the switch didn't seem to work and it was randomly operating. Overall, this was a very pleasant stay and recommend.

I was upgraded at no extra cost. The hotel was easy to find. The room was comfortable. I had to put the heaters on but they were very effective. The hotel is close to the motorway but that did not worry me.

Good value for a range of clients meeting locally. Rooms spacious, clean and comfortable. Staff friendly and helpful. Good quality continental breakfast. Facilities handy to shops and restaurants. Parking and wi-fi free.

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.

17-19 Burgess Road Johnsonville
