I stayed at Finns for three nights, as a solo traveller. From the minute I walked into the hotel, you are felt welcome. The staff were so friendly and helpful. My room was large, had everything, including a kitchenette. Wifi was free only for thirty minutes, before it was necessary to pay. I found the room expensive for a solo...

Finns never fails to impress me with their meals. We have been numerous times with many different people and on every occasion all have been very pleased with their meals and desserts. Service is laid back and friendly, and there is a great selection of wine, beer and drinks.

Booked for business stay, to be closer to work and were greeted by a very friendly receptionist at the bar. Rooms are spacious and tastefully decorated. Bathrooms have lovely deep spa baths and underfloor heating. The restaurant meals were exceptional, well presented and very tasty and reasonably priced. The owners are friendly and welcoming and accommodating, to the point of...

There isn't a lot of choice in Paekakariki but if you don't want to stay in Wellington but want to be within a short driving distance from the capital city, Finn's at Paekakariki is a good choice. While it is close to the railway line, double-glazing ensures that there is no disturbance when staying at Finns. The room was spacious,...

The cafe over the road had run out of decaf coffee and suggested the hotel . I was surprised but tried it and as I suspected - it was awful. Some people just don't know how to do a long black and I sooooo wanted one at the start of my four hour journey! It was weak. Tasted old though...

This was a last-minute booking. We had been trying to get 2 nights at Paraparaumu from where we were taking a day flight to The Sounds. Nothing available for some reason so we went further south & found Finn's. Hotel check-in is at one end of the Bar. Nancy was most welcoming & asked us to drive round the back...

Was in Paekakariki for a wedding - and friends kindly booked me into Finn's for two nights. I was initially a little confused at where I was to "check in" - as this is a shared counter with the house restaurant, but was ultimately welcomed and shown to my room by a very pleasant woman. What a great room! Spacious,...
