We were accommodated in a two bed-roomed apartment, very clean and comfortable with all mod cons. We requested a shower mat and shower stool be available in the unit and both were supplied. The motel is situated on a busy intersection, however was very quite at night. Gardens and BBQ area very well maintained.

We had a comfortable stay here en route to points further North. The staff at the Front Office were nice while the room was standard but clean,tidy and ultimately relaxing! We found we could walk over the Dublin Street Bridge and go to Kowhai Park on the other side of the river. It made for a nice walk!

There was a whole group of us staying as we were there for the Master Games. The room had everything you wanted that's not to say it was up to standard. The iron needed to be replaced. The cleaning of the room the next day was terrible. The location was good and could walk to the market on Saturday.

The room was serviced daily and cleaned well. The staff were very friendly. The motel within close driving distance to town. The compendium could be upgraded to include local eateries and supermarkets. The man in reception clearly lacked local knowledge. From my observation, children enjoy the playground.

I stayed overnight at Astral Motel while driving from Wellington to Tongariro National Park. I found the room provided was very comfortable, and in a great location for the price.I had a good nights sleep, and it was quiet during the night. The reception staff were helpful and courteous . I recommend this motel for the budget conscious traveller.

All the basics ticked and good enough for a quick stay. Friendly and helpful staff eager to help and keep the motel clean. Noisy road and funky drains irritated us. Small things needs fixing. Overall average.

Clean rooms and kept spotless during our stay. Good beds and free wifi. Owner and staff helpful. Not right in town but keen walkers would make it into town, quiet location, no traffic noise. Would stay again.

Old school small town New Zealand motel. Nothing flash and everything you need for a comfy stay. The hosts are very helpful and nice. This (as with many motels in Whanganui) is on Somme Parade - and I was a little worried about the street noise - but it didn't bother me. I found the bed really comfy and I...

My partner and I were looking for somewhere cheap to stay to conclude our holiday. We found it. Astral isn't anything special, it's not going to appease any celebrities but for those travelling on a budget it's pretty good. Close(ish) to town. So not hard to find things to do. Rooms are fairly good. Bed was a little firm for...
