It was disgusting. A non smoking studio smelt of smoke, carpet was stained, shower laminate had chunks broken off the lower edges. No microwave and the TV only received free view, no radio but we were advised that we could listen the National Programme via the TV. Receptionist was very ungracious and very happy about refunding our money. This motel... More

The pool is fill of slim. You have to pay $5 for a spa. They didn't service while I was there for 8 days at all. Cockroach's (big ones) crawling all over the place. Poor maintence. Frayed cords, broken in half stove elements, dark and cold. If you don't want to get sick . Don't stay. Highly recommend Comfort Inn... More

We chose this motel because it looked ok from the road, and the sign said free WiFi. I was surprised at how cheap it was – but not once I'd seen the place. Very tired decor, peeling paint and a smell of damp. What's more, the 'Free WiFi' was only for the first hour! The walls were so thin we... More

We had the basic studio for one night and for $80 (includes $5 booking fee) thought it was a bit pricey for what we got. We weren't given any internet access at all. The sleep was okay and the arguing couple in room number 4 provided all night entertainment.

If you after a place to stay with basic amenities and nothing flash I'd def recommend this place. At 50 bucks a night budget suite compared to 100 elsewhere you can't go wrong. Hr free internet per day per device. I use this place everytime I come up for work. Its close enough to town without the unnecessary inner city... More

We stopped in at The Anvil late one evening when we had not pre-organised any accommodation. The room we had was a bit tired but it was comfortable and it suited our needs. We cooked dinner in the little kitchen. The facilities were quite OK.

Anvil is a good low cost accommodation. they are conveniently located, about 10-15 mins walk from the main centre. staff are friendly. it is nothing flash, but it is priced to suit. even at the cheap price, they still supply towels, soap & its still very clean & tidy. just dated.

My wife, son(16) and I recently stayed at Anvil Court Motor Lodge in Hastings. We had initially booked for four nights but finished up leaving after two due to a change in our circumstances (we went there to visit our daughter who left Hastings for much of the time we were booked to visit). There's not much I can say... More

A little old-fashioned and worn out in places (bathroom) but clean and beds comfy.
