Booked this one on line for two nights before leaving home as we wanted to be here for the Hot Air Balloon event and also wanted to be close to the event. Found it without trouble, check in easy. Room is close to busy adjacent street, but not a problem with noise. Nicely appointed room, large bed, 3 chairs and...

Excellent customer service & so very understanding when had to change accommodation dates due to surgery cancellations.. Close to hospital - welcome respite after a long day - very clean, roomy & beds comfortable with crisp fresh linen. Spa a bonus . Will certainly recommend

Whilst this Motel is on a main road, there was nothing in the way of noise to disturb. It is quite new, and therefore everything is modern, very clean and functional. Host reception was friendly and manoeuvred my booking to give me my requested ground floor room. Breakfast (continental) was served the night before and was average. The WiFi worked...

Thanks for your feed back, we appreciate you taking the time. We would make the following observations that you seemed to have missed. There is laundry powder in a plastic container above the washing machine, provided free of charge and not sure if you re-logged into the WiFi the next morning as you need to log in on a daily...

This motel is run by a lovely couple, always willing to go that extra mile to help their customers. The rooms are exceptionally clean and fresh, and everything you need is supplied. One of the best motels in Hamilton

Due to a family member waiting for surgery at Waikato hospital we didn't know if we were going to be staying one night or a week. It ended up being for 14 nights and the owner did his up-most to ensure we had a bed for the next night on a day to day basis after we returned from the...

I am incredibly impressed by how spotlessly clean this lodging is. I was here for a week for work and it felt like I was in my own home in terms of cleanliness. The kitchens are very simply but amply equipped - the kitchen supplies are kept spotless too. Management is responsive and accommodating. They made my work trip hassle...

Thank you for taking the time to give us your feed back and we are pleased that your stay was enjoyable. We agree about the hung towels and will reinforce this with our cleaning staff. Yes we do recycle and separating the recyclables is a big help. Agree about the internet connection and we are looking for a way to...

Stayed overnight in the Executive 1bdrm units. The units were very clean and spacious and the beds were so comfortable I wanted to take it home. Loved the double shower too! The service was excellent from the Proprietors and we loved the fresh plunger coffee. It was lovely to come back to this accommodation after spending most of the day...

My daughter and I started at the Astra Motor Lodge for a night recently. I can't fault the cleanliness of the two bedroom unit we stayed in, it was impeccable! The motel unit was also modern, and everything was very well appointed. No faults here! The bathroom was very small. Had there been 4 people staying in the room, this...

Thanks for your feed back we appreciate you taking the time to give us your thoughts. We are looking at options with regards shelving in the bathroom for toiletries etc. Regarding the bathroom window the glass is opaque and the window only opens to a maximum amount of 150 mm at the bottom zero at the top so we feel...

There are limited options of places to stay in this area and this place was a nice surprise. Nice clean rooms and modern looking inside. Property doesn't seem too large and the carpark is a bit of a squeeze but the couple who were looking after the front desk were very friendly and helpful. Our flight in was delayed which...

We stayed in the luxury one-bedroom apartment, the room was great and spacious. Everything looks very new too. Great bathroom with a spa bathtub. I wasn't impressed with the service though; I thought it was about average, the owner was reasonably friendly, but not very enthusiastic. We didn't get any plunger coffee sachet during our entire stay. The other small...

Thanks for your feed back Christine we appreciate you taking the time to give us your opinion. We would comment that being enthusiastic 24/7 sometimes is tough especially when you have to deal with many diverse situations, cultures and sometimes problems, although we do our best. A smile or chit chat from an enthusiastic guest usually helps perk up our...
