I stayed one night in a unit that must have been the closest to the road. I had an undisturbed sleep. This is an older motel but this is fairly represented by the price. I had a late arrival, early check out and this was arranged in advance by management which was quiet flexible of them. The room was clean... More

Second time I've stayed here and love it. Close to a main road, but I wasn't at all bothered by any noise. Reasonably close to town, very close to the awesome Kowhai Park. Lovely gardens, fabulous host. Loved the offer of "would you like a firm bed or a soft one?" Sure, it might be a little tired, but I... More

We have stayed at the Astral a few times over the years and it has ticked all the boxes for our family. The operator provided us with fresh strawberries from his garden as we arrived in today. Excellent garden setting and clean and very comfortable rooms. The kids walked to Kowhai riverside park while we relaxed outside with a plunger... More

As a family of 5, the Astra was surprisingly ideal and we would be happy to stay there again. Directly across the road from the river, 2 mins drive to the main shops and easy entry/exit. Lovely, clean rooms with plenty of bedding and clean bath towels with the usual essentials nicely arranged on the bench top. There was a... More

Just across the river bridge from the best kids park in the country, as voted by our daughter... The 50+ channel SKY TV satisfied the family needs and free Wi-Fi helps too. Easy to find and good parking. If you are looking for something shiny and new, this is not it. If you are like us and look for rooms... More

We stayed at the Astral for one night in March 2013. At first sight, given the location of the Astral we thought it would be noisy but were pleasantly surprised to hear no traffic noise at all. Our unit was very clean and the bed was comfortable, notably fridge was remarkably quiet. Free internet was of high quality, a wide... More

We stayed here for one night only. Road noise terrible, no aircon so needed all the windows open. The double bed was terrible. The shower head was broken with water spurting everywhere and the front sliding door could be lifted and opened by hand after having locked it with the key. The owner was approached and shown this fault whereby... More

We were unable to get tradesmen in as it was 3 o'clock on a Saturday afternoon.The lady who booked 2 units said one person could stay in her room when she was offered another bed in the room.$120 is not excessive when the whole town is booked out.Properties with aircon charge anything from $170 upwards.

Stayed for a few nights over Xmas holidays. Great service and location in the Wanganui area. Kids loved the play area and park and river right opposite. Everything Wanganui has to offer within walking distance. Spotlessly clean and friendly staff. Great value for money

Stayed here for 4 nights over Xmas. Friendly hosts. Very fussy wife declared that the standard of cleanliness very high. Excellent location - handy to everything. Vehicle access was good with no traffic worries. Good Sky T.V. coverage.

My husband and I recently stayed here after a three day/two night canoe trip of the Whanganui River. The owner was super friendly and the facilities well suited for the groceries and meal preparation we did. Internet was free and fast, something not often found. The room was spacious and comfortable and the location great as well. Would definitely stay... More
