“A classic Kiwi motel done perfectly: personal, pristine, and priced right”
Reviewed 20 July 2009

After staying in some impersonal hotel on my first night in Hamilton, I followed a colleague's advice and moved to the Ashwood Manor motel.

From now on I will always stay there: from the moment of arrival where Bill greeted me like a long lost friend, through the frosty morning when he cleared my car windows of ice, to Jean's home-made porridge in the morning and the library of books, the Ashwood combines all the best points of a classic Kiwi motel. The spa bath is a brilliant touch, and I appreciated the advice on restaurants and the selection of breakfast options.

We needed a quiet night and yet be close to Waikato hospital and that's what we got. Noisy "boyracers" are infamous in Hamilton and at this motel (unit 10) we didn't hear a thing and got a good night's sleep. The room was immaculately clean and warm. The spa bath was a bonus. I would definately stay here again.

Reviewed 23 March 2009

The Ashwood Manor is really a very good motel. It is only five minutes walk from Victoria Street and sits on a hill overlooking the CBD. It's location is very good. The hosts are very hospitable, even pouring water on the ice that had formed on the rear window of my car without me even asking. The rooms are spotlessly clean and the furnishings pleasant. The bed was a little firm but the linen adequate. The shower pressure was superb and the kitchenette adequate for self-catering (although we ate out). All in all, a very pleasant experience.

Reviewed 7 April 2008

We recently attended a wedding and required a hotel with plenty of parking, and walking distance to restaurants. Friends had recommended The Ashwood Motel and they were so right. The upstairs room was spotless and also had a wonderful spa bath. The batheroom was still very roomy and the bedroom extremely functional with facilities for cooking if required. The flat screen TV with all the Sky channels was good to catch up on sport. Comfortable bed and pillows too. But this Motel is not all about the rooms, but also the service level at reception and office where the owners [There seemed to be three of them] just couldn't do eough to make our stay amazing. Great recommendation for restaurants and brunch places, we had a delightful meal on The Waipa Riverboat ,food superb and at a reasonable price and great ambiance.Walking distance from the motel. To cap it all off when we were struggiling with my bag there they were to assist as well.This motel is top of the list for me and can't wait to return.
