Friendly and most welcoming. I loved the short stay and the convenience to everything I went Hastings for. The rooms are lovely with all cooking facilities etc, plus comfortable beds. Yes I would stay there again. Many thanks to the staff.

The newly renovated two bedroom units are lovely, and to a high standard. We were back from the road and there was no road noise, and we all had a good sleep in the comfy beds. Only a few small niggles really, the reception is supposedly open till 9pm, but when I popped over at 8.45 to ask where the... More

Must be the third stay at this motel. We prefer the upgraded rooms but due to availability stayed in the older room. Needed a 2 bedroom and although kitchen is small, the room was perfect. And beds really comfortable. Liquor store, food outlets, restaurants, 24 hour fuel station all with 5 minutes walk.

Stayed four nights over Easter. Newer studio units at the back of the property are really nice, quite roomy, well-designed, kitchenette has microwave, tea, coffee (plunger coffee is good), a couple of elements and utensils, pots pans as needed. All very clean, bathroom has shower and separate toilet. Spacious grounds with well-established trees, can go for a walk without leaving... More

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
