To be greeted by name by Bronny and Steve the owners was I think a first in all the hotels and motels stayed in around the world. Cant say enough about the owners and how welcoming they were. Keep it up. The motels is fairly new and was in perfect condition. Great, nicely appointed kitchen and bathroom. Having the two room unit upstairs was again perfect for our needs with a teenager.
Unfortunately we had to cut our two night stay short and only had the one night, and we had no expectations that we would not be charged for the second night but they took off a substantial amount. I hope you did re book it for the busy weekend.
We will be back. The location is south a little, but a short trip to the city centre wasn't difficult. Would suggest if you can grab the double room unit upstairs at the end. Thanks guys for making the stay, and the leaving, such a pleasure.

Room Tip: Back upstairs two room unit great for 2 plus 2 traveling if need be.

Thank you for your wonderful review, it is much appreciated. It certainly was a shame that you had to cut short your stay as it was a busy weekend in Hamilton with plenty to do. Rugby, Swimming and Rowing to name a few.
The Delux 1 Bedroom Apartment is certainly popular with our guest along with the spa bath to soak that busy day away.
We both look forward to providing you with the same level service next time you are in Hamilton and hope that you can stay longer to enjoys Hamilton's hospitality.

Take care

Bronny & Steven

This is a great place if you are looking for warm and friendly service, clean well equipped rooms, nice location, very comfortable - and a great nights sleep!

The motel is a recent build on the outskirts of Hamilton. Its near the hospital and Hamilton and the surrounding area is easily accessible by car.

From booking, to arrival and being acquainted with the amenities, to a brief outline of the area, the manager Steve and his wife Bronny made us feel very welcome. They also provided help with our guests transport to ensure that everyone (including my wife) arrived at our function in Hamilton on time.

The rooms are decorated to a high standard. We stayed in room 12 which is large enough to comfortably accommodate a family of 4. The bed was excellent (large and comfortable), lots of wardrobe space, and the small kitchenette and modern bathroom (with a excellent shower and spa bath) made sure we had a very well appointed "home" for the weekend.

I'd have no hesitation going back to stay at the Astra again in either a personal capacity, or as a base for a company event. Staying there certainly added to our weekend in Hamilton, which was terrific!

Thank you for such a wonderful review. We are so grateful that our valued guest take the time to respond and comment on both ourselves and the Astra Motor Lodge. We provide a hassle free stay so transport for your group was a priority for us to continue this level of service. It is those little things that do make the stay at the Astra Motor Lodge different to other motels.

We both look forward to providing the same level of warm, friendly service next time you are in Hamilton either on business or pleasure.

Regards

Bronny & Steven

The place is new, clean and the service is excellent! Bronny and Steve are really friendly. We have been in Hamilton several times and this is the best accommodation we had so far. They have 50+ cable channels which my daughter really enjoyed.

Many thanks for choosing the Astra Motor Lodge to stay at while you were in Hamilton.
The children certainly like having their own TV in the one bed room apartments so they can watch what ever they want without mum and dad changing channels.

We look forward to seeing you all next time you are in Hamilton so please pop in to catch up.

Regards

Bronny and Steven

I arrived here after travelling for nearly 40 hours and received such a lovely reception - It was just what was needed to remind me of the Kiwis superlative characteristics of hospitality and welcome. The room is fabulous all of the major motel chains should look closely at what Bronny and Steve do here and they would learn a few things about customer delight, service and experience. Nothing is too much trouble and the owners really engage with their clients to ensure everyone is completely satisfied by their stay. I have traveled all over the world and stayed in some stunning places - but I would be very hard pressed to remember a place this clean and pleasant regardless of how much I paid to stay. - I will never forget this place and the people here who really do care about their business and their customers who are the real long term guardians of the success of this business. Bronny and Steve just carry on and I will book my friends,colleagues and relatives in here with you when they come to Hamilton without reservation - I mean after making a reservation without reservation! You should be proud of yourselves.

Thank you for your wonderful review. Steven and I are both so grateful to our wonderful guests who have taken the time to respond and comment on both ourselves and The Astra Motor Lodge.
We know first hand that after a long flight all you want to do is have a shower and a sleep, if that is possible but the first point of contact is paramount to a great start in a new country.

We will certainly look after all your friends, family and colleagues with pride and thank you for passing onto them that the Astra Motor Lodge is the place to stay when in Hamilton.

We both look forward to seeing you again soon in Hamilton. Thanks again Bronny and Steven

Best motel!!!! Bronny and Steve's personal touch made such a nice difference to our stay, made us feel very welcome and looked after us very well. Lovely quiet, clean, tidy modern good quality rooms and very close to the City Centre. Have already recommended to our friends and will definitely stay there again if we are ever in Hamilton.
Thank you very much for the much needed relaxing enjoyable stay Bronny and Steve.

Room Tip: Room up the end of top level closest to road has the best view and your own little balcony area and lots of natural light.
