Handy and Quiet
This motel must have really benefited from the new expressway - it is very quiet even though it is on the main road (previously SH1) in Waianae. The train line - two goods trains in 24 hours - was noisier than the road. The supermarket is right next door and all shops and takeaways etc in Waikanae are an easy walk. Everything you would expect in a decent motel, if a little dated. Very clean and great pillows and towels. Only complaint is that cooking toast (not burning it) sets off the smoke detector.

I love staying here anytime. Viv and Russell are great hosts and always friendly and extremely helpful, no matter what time of the day. Good rooms with everything you might need and want. Always clean and this time of the year (autumn going into winter) they even turn on the heater in your room before arrival. It's handy coming/going to the ferry and nice and quiet now the new Motorway is going. It's got a swimming pool.

We stopped here enroute from Bluebridge Ferry home to Thames. It is in Waikanae on the main road which is now off the main highway. A good 40 minutes out of Wellington which meant we had a headstart for our long drive home. Adequate room and facilities made even morw pleasant by the reception service. We arrived late but we're still made to feel welcome. We discovered that there is lots to do here so next time we would spend an extra night.
