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...

Astral Motel is a well situated, comfortable motel. We were warmly welcomed and well cared for. The unit had been modernised. Was lovely having a separate kitchen/dining area and a comfortable bed and couch to relax on. Will definitely stay there again.

Free upgrade, which allowed us to have separate beds. Thank you. Close to the park and the main center. Rooms are very clean and great cooking facilities. Highly recommend this hotel. Very comfortable stay and thank you for your lovely service. From the Wolfpack Team.
