The room was spacious, clean, the shower was great (lots are not!), the towels luxurious and the location very handy. A special thing was the chilled water in the frig when we arrived hot and bothered after a day's travel. But I was worried about the windows which seemed to allow for a small person to enter without our knowledge.... More

We had a night here and the lady host was extremely helpful, the location in terms of the town was great as we could just walk into town for dinner and supplies. The room was clean and spacious but I did find it a bit noisy from the train, the road and tenants within the hotel.

I loved the room it was clean and tidy and yes good quality. It was handy to eating places in the evening. The food was great and on time. I found the female owner very helpful and obliging for what was needed. I would recommend this Motor Lodge.

Well placed close to the centre of Hastings the room was spotlessly clean with a good bed. If I was ever in Hastings again would certainly consider using this motel again. If you need a breakfast I would suggest buying the ingredients from a local shop and making it yourself.

Thank you for your comments. We are proud of the way our staff keep the units for you. However I am sorry to hear that perhaps breakfast was not up to scratch as we are often complimented on them. All of our ingredients are grown locally and we like to work by the simple and flavoursome values, however we will... More

I stay here often for work - my business is close by. The rooms are of a good quality, bathroom is modern and overall very clean. Breakfast was ok if you like a basic cooked meal but without a good coffee I tend to go to a Cafe Owners are pleasant and I will return.

It was my husbands and my first time staying in a Motor Lodge in Hastings. We didn't find the male owner very friendly, in fact we were made to feel that we were a bother. It was up to 27 degrees, so very hot and the only thing we had to keep us cool at night was a fan that... More

I am sorry to read that your stay with us was not how you would have liked it. You are right, the summer here in Hastings has been very hot and we have had a few weeks where the temperatures were well over 30 degrees which was very tiring for everyone, including Motel owners. Fortunately the single story design of... More

We recently stayed at Portmans in mid January, the room was clean & tidy and the staff fantastic. The weather was amazing and the kids had a ball chilling out in the pool. Thank you so much, we will be back next time!!
