“FANTASTIC!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

We stayed for one night in the presidential suite. It is beautiful and well worth the extra $30, the spa on balcony was lovely as was the view of mountain from the bed and the spa! We also highly recommend the cooked breakfast, it was hot, well cooked and delicious. They were happy to provide us with a porta-cot and high-chair free of charge for baby too. Down to earth service. We will be back for the next speedway meeting (900 meters down the road).

Room Tip: Go for room 12, the presidential suite, well worth the extra money.

Thank you Kathleen for your review on our property. I am glad you enjoyed our presidential suite. We try our best to make our motel as family friendly as possible, being a young family ourselves we know how hard it is to travel with young kids which is why at Amity Court we do the work for you.
Our motel is in a great location situated out of town on the main road but still within good walking distance to all points of interest. We hope to see you again next time you stop in Stratford.

My husband and I enjoyed an amazing stay at the Amity Court Motel. It was very clean and very warm as we were there in the middle of a storm. The shower pressure was amazing, did not wnat to get out. It is centrally located in the area and easy to find. Wish we were staying longer. I will be reccommending it to my frineds and family. The owners and staff were friendly and very helpful.
Thankyou again Amity Court.

Thank you Sally for your wonderful review about our motel. We want our units to feel like a home away from home, which is why we have features such as heated tile floors, heat pumps, comfortable beds and sound proof rooms. This enables us to provide a relaxing environment and is why our guest love Amity Court so much.

I traveled over from the UK to attend a golf tournament in Stratford and stayed at the Amity court hotel.
What a fabulos place to stay and the staff are very friendly.
I was put into room 12, which I would recommend highly as it gives you a perfect view of the Taranaki mountain from the balcony and the added bonus is it has a hot tub.....
I must stay when in Stratford.

Thank you Ian for your review on our property. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and the views of our stunning mountain. Our Presidential suite is the prefect place to get away from the noise of the cities to relax and enjoy the beauties of nature. We hope to see you for the next golf tournament in Stratford and I will make sure to hold room 12 for you.

This would have to be one of the nicest motels I have stayed in. We had 11 of us stay for 6 nights and we were so well looked after, nothing was a problem. Would recommend this motel to anyone as the rooms are so clean and new, love the heated tiles in the bathoom, very modern amenities like the TV and light switches, electronic entry ect.

We make the odd trip to Stratford and will come to stay here again. New Motel and very clean, great heating - warm and cosy. Very comfortable beds and great desk compendium about the Motel facilities and local information. Staff very friendly too.

We have stayed in many premium hotels in NZ and I have to say how delighted we have been to find the Amity Court Motel! It really is excellent and sits with the absolute best!

I am a programmer and I am always looking for a quiet spot where I can relax and put some concentration into my work and Amity Court Motel has been perfect.

Here are some of the features:

Heated tiled floors
Very comfortable bath robes (not scratchy!)
Super comfy bed
Double glazing
Spar bath/pool
Excellent water pressure modern showers and very clean
Excellent sized rooms and suites
Brilliant breakfast
Good TV tuning and reception
Incredible view of Mt Taranaki
Nice size balcony
Very very clean
Excellent writing table with conveniently placed plugs and internet connection
Self contained facilities with modern appliances
Ample off street parking that is safe and secure
Very little road noise

They have special packages available so book in advance.

Reception was really welcoming and efficient and was a pleasure to deal with.

I can't speak highly enough of this motel. I wish it was a chain as I would book all my accommodation through it.

"A retreat not to be missed!"

Room Tip: We had room 12 which gave a fantastic view of Mt Taranaki. Simply amazing :)

From arriving at the Motel to departing, it was such a great experience due to the hospitality of the management. Our room was as good as if not better than international hotels we have stayed in ,we especially enjoyed the heated tiles on a crisp Stratford morning. The spa is enjoyable as is the view from the room out to Mt Taranaki, what better way to wake up! The tariff is reasonable and only a few dollars more than the 'other' older motels down the road.

Oh I can't forget the cooked breakfast we received in the morning, to die for. We will definitely be staying here next time we visit Stratford and am already looking forward to it thanks to the Amity! We enjoyed the romance package and the flowers and chocolates were and nice touch along with the late check out.

Kind regards Rob & Karina Perth.
