            The room was comfortable. The hosts were friendly and helpful, especially when my friend left behind a bag. They called the taxi company to let us know so we coulld retrieve it. They also added nice little welcoming touches to the room.

            Is an place excellent when you need a good place where sleep and have tranquility to go and come back many hours late. Is near the downtown, near the nice parks and also restaurant ans shopping.

            10.0

            The front line staff were genuinely friendly. I was delighted by how spick and span the unit was and how much space we had: living room, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and separate loo. It was a cold night and I appreciated good heaters in the living room, bathroom and bedroom. It was good, too, to be so close to the 24 hour dairy. Everything we needed was provided.

            I wanted somewhere to leave my recyclables, separate to the normal waste. I wonder if there's a more co-friendly way to provide soap - pump bottles in the bathroom and shower, maybe? (Also, my elderly dad had a difficult time opening the individual soap packets!)

            location was great being in the rear unit it was very quiet. The unit was spacious bed comfy shower was great plenty of heating

            Perhaps if I was there as a couple sky tv would have been nice however this time it didn't matter

          • Family with children
            10.0

            We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Aalton Motel. Very close to the city centre, very friendly owners, polite & helpful staff. The rooms are kept very clean with a decently equipped kitchen which comes with all the basic necessities to make comfortable breakfast and even lunch/dinner yourself. Very close to hotels and supermarket. I strongly recommend for any family who are looking for value for money. I will anyday come and stay here again. My entire family liked it too.

            Very friendly owners nice and quiet and close to shopping centres couldnt have asked for better accomadation

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            The proprietor was extremely friendly and accommodating. When we thought we would not be there before 8 when the office closed he emailed instructions of where to find the key etc. and when we were there in time he gave very good advice on restaurants and services we needed. Lots of good restaurants within walking distance and very close to city centre.

            Comfortable and very clean but the decor was just a little tired. However, good value for money.

          • Group of friends
            9.6

            The staff were friendly, the spa was avail for free very nice and relaxing, the free Internet was handy and the sky was very good on flat screen tv. The place was clean and tidy. Handy location o westfield mall and our course. Buses closeby also.

            The only thing was the shower pressure was weak, needs to be increased

          • Group of friends
            8.2

            Close to the city centre. Very helpful staff/owner. Very clean.

            The decor and fittings were a little old fashioned

          • Single
            7.4

            Friendly staff and single story in the earthquake prone zone was why I went for it.

            Its a mix of new fittings and old, E.G. new tv and shower fittings, old style kitchen draws and light switches. The price reflects this so its ok.

          • Older travelers
            9.6

            The manager was very helpful, the unit clean and well serviced.

            The only thing I would change is an extractor fan in the bathroom to stop the mirror steaming up.

          • Older travelers
            10.0

            Convenient .Close to eating out but easy to eat in. Access....Driving made easy - main roads to Sumner, Lincoln,arriving by the West Coast road and leaving to Picton.

          • Single
            7.4

            The owner was very hospitable. Location very handy and the Motel was spotlessly clean.

            Getting a little worn, could do with updating

          • Group of friends
            5.4

            The location was good

            Overpriced as it is an old motel charging new prices requiring one to pay before being given the room key. Would not stay or recommend it
