I booked this motel due to fly by points and it looked good on line and had a pool! What it did not mention was the pool was not usable. Very disappointing when we hit 28-30 dg most days. There in fact was no cooling systems at all not even a fan in the rooms. Our room was large....but very... More

My wife and I used the Astor Motel on a recent business trip to Auckland. The room was tidy and homely, the motel, close to Ellerslie, Penrose and Greenlane for business meeting and the twin share room was very good value for money at just $110.00 per night. A perfect place to stay if you're in that area on business

Don't even think of giving any rating to this crappy motel... Booked five rooms and only four rooms available on arrival. Stinky beds. No heater available. The owner threw eggs to us and kept two of our luggages as we cancelled our balance bookings after one horrible night . We had to call police to get back our luaggages. You... More

We arrived in the pouring rain, but despite the car park being almost empty we were told to use a park that was not under shelter. The bloke at reception complained when we parked so that we could offload luggage under shelter! Returning to reception for details on the free wifi I was shown the login details on the wall...

This has to be the worst ever motel in New Zealand. Filthy windows. Enough hair down the bathroom sink plug to make a mat. Duvet and pillows so old and stained valance. No excuse for not having a standard of cleanliness.

this place needs a total reconstruction. our room surely was under construction: no cover on the floor of the living room, the toilet bowl was out of order, the shower was bad, etc. when asking the manager about this we were insulted ... never be back there

Very dated Motel .Manager seemed to be in panic mode - grey singlet and shorts was not a good look on reception - couldn't really be bothered to be civil. Unit was a little grubby and had some odd features like a hole in the wall for razor blades! , a built in radio that didn't work, a grubby/rusty bottle... More

We booked with bookings.com and brought the printout of the $130 advertised fee for 4 people. The manager insisted their rate was $110 for 2 plus $20 per additional person ($150 total). So he gave us two separate rooms for the overcharge of $30; we read that this has happened to other guests. Is it their common practice? Room was... More
