“Lovely stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

Brian and Mary were so welcoming and friendly. The spa in every room was a lovely luxurious treat to relax in. The rooms were so comfortable and warm and the hosts have paid great attention to detail. Ill certainly return next time I'm in Rotorua.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

We stayed 3 nights on the second floor. There is no elevator so had to lug the cases up the tight outdoor spiral staircase. The owner was very friendly and helpful and gave us a jug of milk upon arrival. The bed was too soft and too low, very squeaky and springy. The bathroom had a hot tub in it and we used it every day; not very Eco-friendly though. The motel is located, along with many others, on Fenton Street and was easy to find. There are lots of places in the area and we would probably stay at a more modern place in future. I believe this motel is up for sale.

Fenton Street is 'hotel central' in Rotorua....there's so much choice to be had but the bright paintwork and colourful flower baskets at the Ashleigh Court set the scene and urge a closer look. Like many motels it's far from new but my room sported a recent makeover with decor and furniture steering away from the standard motel style. There was a wide comfortable bed with (unusually in New Zealand) a duvet in a room set with dining and coffee tables and a small well equipped kitchette. A huge spa bath dominated the recently redecorated bathroom where we found a stack of thick soft towels and good quality soaps. A friendly chatty welcome from the proprietor, an offer of milk for tea and information about the town set us off on a good note when we checked in. The main road is busy but the rooms face onto a side street and noise is not an issue. NZ$9 buys you use of the guest laundry set with a good top-loader and usefully big dryer. For NZ$110 a night you might find the equal of this place but I don't think you'll beat it.

Don't expect a lot here, rooms are very outdated but having said that they are kept clean. The owner (Brian) is very friendly & is more than happy to help with anything you need.
They have spas in every room out the back but the only problem is these are undercover with the roof stretching all the way along to all units and cigarette smoke wafts into your unit so keep your sliding door & windows closed.

The smell from the geothermal really didn't worry us, you got used to it and only really smelt it first thing in the morning.
Breakfast is ok here but ask for the toast to be well cooked otherwise you will get slices of bread!
It's not a place you would spend the day hanging around, sleepover only & move on! Happy travelling!
P.s The Polenisian Spa is only up he road & should bea must do on your trip to Rotorua!

Very spacious, well equipped kitchen. Had a spa bath which was an extra luxury. The manager was very helpful giving us lots of advice on the local tourist spots. Free wifi too. The only issue was the smell of the whole town, which having never been to a geothermal area before was a real shock. So as long as you don't mind the smell of hair removing cream up your nostrils, stay in Rotorua!

Hubby and I have travelled extensively in New Zealand and always stay here when in Rotorua. I've noticed a bit of a decline in the rooms for the past couple of years and investment in new wallpaper and replacing the odd ceiling tile would not be wasted money. Also, I boiled water for coffee in a pot the last time we stayed. Yucky teapot was actually green in places.

The proprietor is very friendly; the rooms are quiet, and the hot tubs are always great. Plus, if you are on the ground floor, the hot tub rooms are one of the few places in NZ where you can actually have a cigarette without going outside. Thank you, Ashleigh Court, for not demonizing smokers like the rest of the country has done.

We stayed in the motel December 2011 for two nights , was really resonably priced compared to others in the area. Rooms were a bit dated but still clean and large enough with kitchen facilities & spa bath
