It is now known as the Ellerslie Palms Motel, and the rooms have been refurbished and are quite up-to-date : Good bathroom and fittings, reverse cycle split air con, big TV. The pool is no longer there, replaced by garden. New owners / managers. Only issue I had was that the water isn't too hot in the mornings (not in...

I really should have checked trip advisor before booking this motel. The rooms are very run down and sorely in need of updating. It looks nothing like the pictures on the booking sites. It was fine for my purposes and the staff were reasonably friendly, but just really outdated.

Really not happy......has a pool but it's empty and clearly has been that way for a few years. The unit is very old and out of date along with cups plates etc. Bathroom is a disgrace and the concrete floor is very 60's the tv has the kind of reception I would have expected back in the 50's. So disappointed...

I booked this motel because it had a pool and it was going to be hot in Auckland. When I arrived payment was demanded before I even received a hello - this was because the owner was 'stressed'! On realising my room didn't have air con or a fan I had to go to reception (no in-room phone) and ask...

I booked this motel due to fly by points and it looked good on line and had a pool! What it did not mention was the pool was not usable. Very disappointing when we hit 28-30 dg most days. There in fact was no cooling systems at all not even a fan in the rooms. Our room was large....but very...

My wife and I used the Astor Motel on a recent business trip to Auckland. The room was tidy and homely, the motel, close to Ellerslie, Penrose and Greenlane for business meeting and the twin share room was very good value for money at just $110.00 per night. A perfect place to stay if you're in that area on business

Don't even think of giving any rating to this crappy motel... Booked five rooms and only four rooms available on arrival. Stinky beds. No heater available. The owner threw eggs to us and kept two of our luggages as we cancelled our balance bookings after one horrible night . We had to call police to get back our luaggages. You...

We arrived in the pouring rain, but despite the car park being almost empty we were told to use a park that was not under shelter. The bloke at reception complained when we parked so that we could offload luggage under shelter! Returning to reception for details on the free wifi I was shown the login details on the wall...

This has to be the worst ever motel in New Zealand. Filthy windows. Enough hair down the bathroom sink plug to make a mat. Duvet and pillows so old and stained valance. No excuse for not having a standard of cleanliness.
