Halswell Lodge is located in a very convenient location to the Quay area and short walk to the centre of town. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The room was spacious, bed comfortable bathroom was in need of a revamp though, but we would stay there again if required.

The Halswell lodge located in the center of courteney place, easy to walk to Te Papa, city center, and New World supermarket. My family stayed in 2 bed apartment and we cooked for dinner. Facility were good and the stay were wonderful. Check in and out was easy.

Only stay here if you have nowhere else to go”
The lovely, helpful lady in reception and the close proximity of the building to the centre of town does not make up for the absolutely dire state of this motel. I was placed in a 'single' room (containing a single bed with barely enough space to walk around the bed on either side) with nowhere to put my suitcase and belongings. The room was smelly, with yellow/brown wallpaper which was peeling off in places. The room was next to the door to the car park meaning that I barely slept during my stay, with people coming in and out, banging the door at all hours. Clearly, no thought has gone into reducing this noise or soundproofing the walls/doors in any way. Worst of all, the bathroom ceiling was covered in black mould, which made everything smell. Despite an incredibly noisy fan in the bathroom, there was no ventilation at all and the room was constantly damp. The bed was lumpy and uncomfortable. Towels provided were very old, grey and rough. I peeked into other rooms on my way through the motel and they were all pretty similar, so thought it would be pointless in asking to move. All in all, an incredibly disappointing stay. The saving grace was that it was so close to town that I could just get out of there asap every morning.

Hi please if you are not happy with the room come down to reception and let us know there is a problem. The budget rooms are not the 3 1/2 stars rooms they are the ones up the back near the car park if we head known we would upgraded you to another room. We do appreciate your feedback we will look in to this for you. .

Very incredible worst happening ”
Readers of this, please should not stay this hotel. I want to ask the owner, why the door of my room could be opened with the room key of another customer ? At early morning (am. 6:00), a neighbor's guest who came back from outside and mistook my room for her room. Using her room key, the door of my room was opened easily ! I was changing my clothes ! We were surprised each other. It must be using the same key for the other rooms ! I thought trying to protest to the stuffs, but had not any time to leave there. Poor security is the worst. Why there are the same ?! What this owner want to do ?! This hotel is very dengerous.

not convenience to stay”
(-) stayed at compact double room next to reception: very thin wall, even can hear water in duct and people showering from next door, every time reception close the office door its sound so loud and annoying. Small room for $88 per night i paid comparing 2 budget hotels right in the CBD of Auckland which is only $75 per night with larger room. Loud sound from mini portable heater. Small basin is not convenience. (+) free wifi, good location, clean enough, shared water dispenser & kitchen, parking space.

Deceiving ”
At first glance this was a nice place to stay, and as we are on a road trip on a budget it was on the higher side of what we wanted to pay per night at $150. It is sold as a luxury city lodge, with refurbished 1920's rooms, free unlimited wifi in all rooms, sky tv, spa bath etc. Well, there was no wifi signal! no tv remote, so no sky, the spa was dirty although they cleaned it after our first night we found dirty bubbles chasing us so realised the jets must have been dirty..... Our phone was dead, it didn't work and our window wouldn't shut, so it was drafty and we could hear everyone's conversations outside! We let the friendly man at reception know and he said he would get all of these things fixed however he only fixed the wifi on the second day and offered us no discount or apology. We would not stay here again!

Pretty run down property. Budget rooms are just that - for your budget. Bed was comfortable and room comes with the essentials, but don't expect much. Staff was welcoming. Motel wasn't dirty per say but not spick and span either. But prime location a short walk to restaurants, cafes and shopping makes it a winner provided you are spending most of your time in Wellington out and not in your room.
