I have stayed here 3 times now while travelling in and out of Wellington, I find it more enjoyable staying in Petone and getting up early to get to the airport for a flight than staying by the airport. On this occasion I had been travelling for 48 hours and arrived early with no booking. They happily gave us a room and let us sleep. The beach and wharf are over the road with views of Wellington and Petone's main street with plenty of cafes, clothes and second hand shops less than 10 minutes walk away. There are other motels in Petone but this would be the closest to the café region and supermarket. Rooms are clean, tidy and quiet. Plenty of off street parking.

Very nice accommodation. We stayed in the two bedroom suite, very spacious and clean. The people that run the property are very nice and helpful. The breakfast was really yum too! I found the accommodation to be very quiet as well. It's also a short walk to Jackson street.

We booked early and were not able to get a 2-bedroom unit for our entire stay, as it was the rugby "Sevens" weekend, so we booked two single bedroom units for part of the stay. Heather promised to keep us in mind if they had cancellations, and on our arrival we were pleasantly surprised to find that there was a cancellation and we had the 2-bedroom unit for our entire stay. Our room was behind the main building, and despite being on a busy road, we found the room quieter than we had anticipated. The motel is very centrally located, within walking distance of grocery stores, cafes, Jackson Street shops and the Petone railway station (for travel into Wellington). The room was very clean, serviced daily and met all our expectations. I would certainly recommend 83 By The Sea for great stay in Petone.
“Another great stay!!!”

Many thanks to the team @ 83 by the sea for another great stay! Nice to be recognized as a returning customer.We loved the new decor, best beds we have slept in. Nice to get a fine Welly weekend , walks along the beach and wharf. Tried La Bella Italian restaurant just around the corner- recommended by Garry and Heather .Very nice as was the Butcher and Brewer pub on Jackson Street. Looking forward to our next years trip to Petone. Thanks for the loyalty card for other ASURE Motels.

On a weekend of public holidays and Rugby Seven Cup games, this was the closest accomodation to the CBD that suited our needs, and I was booking months in advance. Our triple room is well equipped and very comfortable, and of course parking and a laundry. Nearby is Jackson Street with lots of cafes and restaurants, and a very good fish shop only a few steps away on the Esplanade. The staff are very pleasant and helpful.
