Claims to be fully renovated but only some are and the rest are very tired. Booked room 3 months in advance. On arrival we were told the studio we booked didn't exist. We were offered a very shabby room with shared facilities in the Lodge. Eventually given a very tired family unit but were charged an extra $56 a night.... More

Only one night but will definitely recommend and also come again. Double bed Exec. chalet 27 was probably the best motel room we have stayed at in NZ in the last 9 years. Everything in the room was immaculate, clean, modern and comprehensively fitted out. Liked the idea of separate doors for bathroom and lockable inner doors for shower and... More

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay & was well looked after by Amici's host - Jenny. I stayed in the Executive Suite #32 and the room was wonderful. Funky furniture, bed to die for, air conditioning and loved the mirrors - full length & head height - which is a plus! I was in the Hawkes Bay for business and was thankful... More

Only one night stay but we were impressed with the efforts made to recommend and book a restaurant for us all. More importantly, the rooms were a good size, quiet and comfy. Didn't do the pool as we were running late but looked good. Wifi also much appreciated. good friendly comfortable place - would certainly stay there again if we... More

The Amici is very clean and tidy but it is a somewhat dated motel. Reception and checkout were trouble free, welcoming and easy. I didn't have the time to use the pool which looked very inviting. I did appreciate the use of free wifi.

We booked a studio room on line in Sep 14. Arrived 20 Feb 15,but were told they had lost our booking due to a change over in computer soft ware. Finally located our booking. Our room had single beds - not a problem. In the older accomodation, which resembled and reminded me of domitory Army barrack accomodation in the late... More

We were somewhat concerned about our stay here having read some of the recent reviews.....however they were completely unfounded.... our room (executive suite) was absolutely just what we required. Plenty of space, very comfy bed, great shower and a/c. Pool area looked fine, didn't have time to try it out. Front of house very helpful and knowledgeable about local restaurants... More

We were greeted with a warm welcome and allocated two adjoining units as requested. Parking was most easy and being at ground level right outside each of the units was very convenient. The accommodation was good, clean and nicely appointed. Every request to the management was accommodated promptly with a smile and a "can do" approach. We enjoyed our stay... More
