This lodge is well,rated for,good reasons. It it clean, well looked after and spacious.
The only minor drawback would have bee traffic noise and unsavoury neighbours but hardly the lodges fault. The couple who run the lodge are lovely and will do what they can to make your stay comfortable. A good choice for being close to the hospital and Hamilton gardens.

Thank you so much for taking your time to post this wonderful review. The hush double glazing and solid concrete construction has certainly eliminated most of the traffic noise coming from State Highway 1. but as you mentioned some small things our out of our control.
We have really enjoyed meeting great people in our short 5 months of operation and look forward to providing those little extras for you next time you are visiting.

Many thanks again for your review.

Me and my partner have stayed at other motels/ hotels in Hamilton and this is by far the best.

Great Value, good parking Quality fittings, a good sized bathroom, good proximity to both the hospital and town (a 5 min $9 taxi ride to both and wonderful owners.

We will be returning

Thank you for your wonderful review, much appreciated. Having the Astra Motor Lodge on the south side of the city allows our guest easy access to all restaurants which are at this end of the city and as you mentioned is only a 3-5 min drive.
We would love to catch up with you both again next time you are in Hamilton.

I was travelling in the North Island (coming from Cape Reinga) and hadn't booked a place to stay as I wasn't sure how far I would get. I saw the beaconing lights of Astra Motor Lodge as I drove by, stopped in to enquire re room availability, and was very warmly received. The rooms are exceptional and the hosts make the stay delightful.

Thanks for those kind words. The bright blue lights at night certainly do draw people to the Astra Motor Lodge. We hope that the rest of your trip was a success and it was lovely to meet another great overseas traveller.

Many thanks

Bronny & Steven.

Bronny & Steven couldn't have been more helpful. We were staying for a family wedding & they even drove us to our venue.
The rooms were spacious and very clean & tidy. The beds were very comfortable.
I would recommend this motel to anyone.

Thank you for those kind words. It was great to see the family so excited before the wedding and we knew that the evening went well by the look on everyone's face the next morning.
We look forward to providing the same service next time you are in Hamilton.

Kind Regards

Both Bronny & Steven are so amazing - before even arriving they were awesome to deal with when booking our accommodation, so friendly and helpful! On arrival they were the same - such a pleasure to deal with. You can tell they are in this business because they love it and make you feel like family straight away. We stayed as a family and they were so nice to our children as well. Made us feel so welcome and wanted to help us out in any way they could. I would absolutely recommend staying here and we ourselves will definitely be staying when we are in Hamilton again!

Wow, how do we respond to your wonderful review.
We are really passionate about people and the service we provide at the Astra Motor Lodge that we believe the first point of contact whether its on the phone or in person is number 1 priority.

The saying that people arrive as strangers and leave as friends sits very close to our hearts. We have a number of guest in our short 5 months of operation that continue to stay with us and we are in regular contact via email or even Skype for those overseas guests. Family is a big part of our life which reflex in our business but in the end, we enjoy people.
We both look forward to catching up with you and your family next time you are in Hamilton.

Take Care

Bronny & Steven
