I read many reviews on Trip Advisor before my departure to New Zealand to locate affordable, clean accommodation in Wellington which was close to amenities. I found BK's Esplanade excellent value and worthy of the glowing reports.The accommodation was immaculately clean and the staff helpful and pleasant. The common laundry facilities were also very clean. Restaurants were within walking distance...

Newly built motel, not that far from Wellington. Much better total experience than with any hotel in the city center, especially when you're travelling by car. No horrendous parking fees as in the city. Quiet spacious location. Just the fridge next to the bed could be quieter, it's an annoyance.

My wife and I stayed at this terrific motel for 3 nights on our visit to New Zealand. Very comfortable and well appointed, with Kasia, Shane and their team providing top class service with a smile. They really go out of the their way to make your stay relaxing. Definitely an excellent place to stay, right on the beach and...

I stayed at B-K's Esplanade for one night. I was greeted by a very friendly receptionist, shown to a very clean and comfortable room. The bed was comfortable, shower pressure was great. I recommend this motel to anyone that I'd on a bit of a budget. True value for money.

Moved here after a less than satisfying experience in another Petone motel. There really was no comparison. BK's is a modern well appointed motel on the seafront and within easy walking distance of the Jackson Street restaurants and cafe's. Well worth considering for your Wellington stay

I would recommend this spot! It's super convenient, and in a great location. The staff went out of their way to help me find a good room that would work for my family. I was really impressed with the service and location.

What a great place to stay: large rooms just across from Wellington harbour. The rooms are immaculately clean and well laid out with a kitchenette, recliner chairs and DVD player. There's a DVD library and gym on site and the place is a brief walk from Jackson street which has great restaurant and cafe selections.

Good quality accommodation is hard to find in New Zealand. I was really surprised at the quality of this motel. Away from the main cbd - the location is stunning with great views of the Petone Esplanade and near Jackson street with cafe, restaurants and a pak n save close by. Rooms are well appointed, modern and quite spacious. Housekeeping...
