        very nice rooms and heat pump

      • Family with children
        9.6

        We traveled with our three adult kids. We booked a family room for the three kids. It had a room with a single bed ands and another with a double bed. The rooms had a tv in every room (total 2 Tvs). There is a fridge and a kettle, plus mugs, tea, sachets and coffee sachets. A toilet with a shower is en-suite. The other room had nothing but a bed, which we slept in. The bed was comfortable. We asked for a heater (it was winter). Our room shared toilets and showers. There were 2 showers, and two toilets. 2 washing basins were in the corridor. Everything was clean. The Motel looks new and clean.

        The room is clean, the lady is nice to tell us where should we go. Althought we waked up by fire alarm in 5:30am. but that let's us know that the motel is safty. To see everyone stand out side of motel at 5:30 in the morning, it's best memory ever!!!!!

        I stayed in the dorm room which is very basic but the facilities of the motel are perfect. The Motel is clean, owners very helpfull, city - very nice and wellcoming. Good quality for the price. I had the opportunity to see the motel rooms and I must say that are very well equiped and clean.

        Great staff, comfy super clean bed and bedding plus prime town location

        It is absolutely centre of the city--everything is close or accessible. It is next door to city bus stops and the public transportation in Rotorua is excellent! A+++ for location!

        It was noisy depending on who was in the next room--

        10.0

        The owner Sue was so great and helpful. The location is right in the center of the city, the bus is just in front of the hotel. Parking if you rent a car. Perfect really for a low budget.

      • Family with children
        9.2

        I asked for a heater upon our arrival as I felt very cold and the unit felt cold and it was brought up straight a way. It was not till after that we noticed there was actually a heat pump appliance in the unit.

        We DId not like the tiny sink to wash the dishes in but managed oke.

        Convienience of the location. Good Service with reception as i notified i would arrive late and they waited for me.

        Lot of hair on the bed.. Would have been good if towels were provided as well.

        Location and price are real advantages

      • Group of friends
        10.0

        We were very pleased with Astray. Excellent staff, very clean, recently renovated, efficiently designed, well equiped rooms, with all essential features. Simple but attractive. Location central, right next to bus stop to airport. The price was very economical but we did not feel that we were making sacrifices.

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        Friendly, good facilities, great location, free parking.

        Budget room was small but great value, windows were double glazed and therefor no noise. Could also open window which is great

      • Older travelers
        8.8

        Rooms were clean, beds comfortable , a good value for the money.

      • Older travelers
        6.2

        Reception lady is very friendly and helpful and facility is reasonbly adequate for the price

        We did not notice the hotel is backpacker & motel combined accomodation, we thought the motel/apartment rooms should be located separately to the backpackers room/space. . However our 2 bedrooms are just one thin wall beside the main lounge/dining room where all backpackers meet and chat and have parties even at mid-morning and management should advise them to be quiet after 12am as other people are sleeping....it is extremely noise at night even at 2:30am and we can not sleep at all,we booked a 2bed apartment with elder people and this is terrible for family stay, maybe ok for backpackers? Definitely not for others..we won't be back..

      • Family with children
        9.2

        Friendliness, central location, suit a group booking

        nothing we didn't like!
