Stayed at the Ashgrove for 2 nights and found it to be excellent accommodation. Our hosts Wendy and Fred were very welcoming and helpful with information about the area. We enjoyed the cakes on arrival. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Ashgrove. Margaret & Des, Dublin, Ireland

Our second trip to New Zealand. After a start in Auckland we had big expectations on Pahia. Ash Grove is a nice little motel directly near the road Haruro falls. The owners (which by the way are selling - dec 2010) are a nice couple which probably has doing this for long time. The rooms are standard equipped and for...

We thank these guests for their review. However, we are very disappointed to hear that they were not happy with the accommodation we offer. We should point out that ALL our units have been COMPLETELY REFURBISHED to a 4* plus Qualmark rating (though we still market ourselves as 4*, so that our guests feel that we are 'over delivering' on...

Hosts: Wendy and Fred are a pleasant and efficent team for whom nothing is too much trouble - in our case they went above and beyond what we could reasonably have expected. Rooms are cleaned to the highest standard, well equiped with french windows leading to a secluded garden with a swimming pool and bar-b-q's. Venue is about five minutes...

We stayed at the ash grove for 3 nights while visiting the bay of islands and could not fault anything at all. The hosts Wendy and Fred could not have been more accommodating. From the warm muffins on arrival to driving us into town they really went above and beyond. We had one of the honeymoon cabins and whilst we...

We really enjoyed our time at the Ash Grove. Wendy gave us a very warm welcome and we were delighted with the standard of the room. Outside was a small covered patio area with a table and chairs and access via a gate to the pool. Absolute heaven after a long drive from Auckland. We were lucky enough to arrive...

We recently had the pleasure of staying at Ash Grove Motel for 2 nights in mid April. We booked a total of 4 units for us and 3 other couples as we were gathering from all over the North Island for a friend's birthday celebrations. Wendy was extremely helpful and patient when we booked and went to some lengths to...

We booked the Ash Grove Motel due to the many glowing reports on TripAdvisor and picked the Honeymoon suite as it was described as "secluded and peaceful". We had been travelling in NZ for 4 weeks and wanted this to be a relaxing wind down before flying onto Australia. We were greeted pleasantly enough and shown to our cottage. I...

I have to hold my hands up and take full responsibility for this review. Unfortunately I have a tendency to take things far too personally and I can only apologise - it is very hard to accept that some people are not happy with what you are offering, when we put so much time and effort into making things as...

This was the best motel in our six week trip. It is very quiet, out of town and set in beautifull grounds with a very nice pool and hot tub. The suites are large, really well equipped and beautifully decorated. We initially booked for six nights but stayed for 8. Wendy and Fred were very friendly, knowledgeable and great hosts....

We loved this motel. Wendy and Fred welcomed us warmly and provided any help and information needed, booking trips for us too. Our accommodation was perfect, beautifully designed, immaculate, yet comfortable. We made use of the lovely swimming pool area. There was a guest laundry and internet facilities and a library of books and DVDs to borrow- a perfect home...

Ash Grove was our first stop in New Zealand and we had no experience of staying in motels and Ash Grove exceeded our expectations, we received a warm welcome (including muffins) much appreciated as we had driven up from Auckland after an overnight flight from Oahu. We had chosen one of the stand alone units and it was just perfect,...
