I will never stay at this motel ever again. I booked room from Thursday --Saturday payment was for two people, however a friend did not stay Thursday night but turned up on Friday I went to the office and asked for a room with two beds, her reply was it would be cheaper to put a extra bed into the...

Room was comfortable, clean and great value for money. The staff were so helpful and friendly going over and above what is required to make sure we had a great stay. The motel is within walking distance to the hospital which made life so much easier for us. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting value for money with service+

We normally stay at another motel when visiting Hastings but this time we were staying longer this time and needed a 2 bedroomed unit and so looked around for an alternative, that was cost effective for us. We found Amici! We were in Unit 30 for 9 nights. It was clean, modern, well set out, comfy and had everything we... More

One bedroom apartment for NZD 99, now how can you complain at that - you can't!! Liked the room layout with a separate living area to the bedroom, slightly dated but clean and comfortable so unless you are décor fan you will totally appreciate this place. I think some of the other rooms are more up to date in décor... More

We recently stayed at the Amici for a family gathering in Hastings. 3 other family members also booked rooms. The room was beautifully renovated (just like in the photos for once!). The staff were so helpful and friendly - making sure we had enough ice one night before she closed reception and going out and buying balls so our children... More

Was impressed with our 2 bedroom apartment. Likely renovated. Everything we needed. Our friend stayed in one of the smaller rooms the night earlier and the decor was looking a little tired however. Staff were very friendly which always makes for a nicer stay. Unsure what the wifi situation was but think it was a voucher system which we didn't... More

A large group of us booked rooms at the Amici motel to attend a wedding in Hastings at the start of November. We all had varied rooms for booking the same 'type' but were all satisfied. All rooms were clean and tidy. The day after the wedding I was unwell and our flight was in the evening but they let... More

This is a very well presented Motel and at very reasonable rates. We stayed in a two-bedroomed studio - the super-king bed was a treat. The quality of everything in this room was A1 and we were very pleased. We would most certainly recommend this to people. Nice and central and very easy to find. Well done to the owners.

this was my second stay within 12 months for business purposes. My 2 colleagues and I stayed in 'executive suites'. They are very nicely appointed and have clearly been refurbished recently with good quality fittings and chattels. The managers were very friendly and helpful with dining suggestions etc. Amici is located within easy walking distance to a number of restaurants,... More

Our group of 8 recently stayed at Amici and we were allocated 4 rooms. It was surprising to note the differences between the rooms not only in size but also in layout and decor yet we all paid the same overpriced amount of $139 per night. Decor in some of the rooms was reasonably modern yett basic while others are... More
