5.16km from Richmond FellowshipWe got stranded in the Wellington area due to a personal accident and so ended up spending eleven days at Champers Motor Inn. It is located in a mostly quiet neighborhood and offers easy parking in case you have a car. It is also located just minutes away from the Western Hutt train station that offers trains every 30 minutes into Wellington (except for weekends when there are no trains). I am, saying mostly quiet, as on the back of the property is a contractor storage yard that tends to load/unload metal pipe scaffolding already in the early hours. So, try to get a room towards the front of the motel if you want to sleep in. The rooms are very large (we had a one bedroom suite) and are fairly well equipped. There was a small kitchenette equipped with basic dishes and cutterly, a small fridge, a large flat screen TV, an iron and an ironing board. There is also a hot water maker so you can actually make your own breakfast if you like (instant coffee and tea is provided). Parts of thr bathrom habe been updated (sink) but other parts still need to be done (bath tub). Management is very nice and helpful. I had to print out a fairly large number of documents while I was there and they willingly obliged for a small fee. The one downside of the place is the daily housekeeping. It appears the cleaning staff is really geared towards nightly rentals as they do a minimum of housekeeping if you stay for a longer period. They will empty the trash, pull the sheets in the bed tight and provide fresh towels. That is basically all. They are in and out in under 5 minutes. During the time we were there the crew of three would not clean the wash basin or the bath tub. There was no sweeping or vaccuming of the floors and if we had not specifically asked for it they would not have changed the sheets in the entire eleven days. So clearly management has to get on top of them as they are simply a bit too comfortable and, so far, appear to get away with it. The internet is free and of high quality. You can actually stream movies with it. Unfortunately the signal did not cover the entire suite. One could only get a good signal in the front of the room but not the bedroom. There is a small self service laundry on site where you can do a wash and dry for NZ$ 2 each. Overall, the place would be very good if the housekeping would be improved but as it is, it is only average.
