We are travelling around NZ with family and friends and Stayed in Hastings at the Fairmont motor lodge. The accomodation was very clean and tidy and all amenities were provided. A little deli located directly door had everything we needed. Couldn’t fault the motor lodge at all. The location was around 4kms from city centre which we didn’t mind as it was a place to rest before driving to wellington.

Date of stay: January 2018

Some times you plan ahead, other times you just take a chance and this was the best chance by far. The room was quiet, clean, had all the facilities to make the stay a very pleasant experience. I found that most places we stayed in had something not quite right with them but this was not one of them. From can opener to swimming pool, this had the lot, and on top of that very friendly hosts.

Room tip: Even though we were in the front of the motel, it was super quiet.

Motel itself was not so bad - room was clean.
First room offered has a smoke in an air - definitely not stink - but for me non smoker allergic it was obvious somebody has enjoyed a puff in a bed recently. Room has been replaced immediately and hosts were exceptionally helpful including a little dog.
It was cold night and I opted to use wall heater - to say it was noisy, say nothing. Imagine working on your tablet next to turboprop 12 seater so famous in Air NZ.
There is a pool but it's not heated :(
Spa instead was great in spite of some unpleasant burnt plastic smell ...
And Hastings!!! I understand there are storm water and/or sewage problems but... Half of city is just blocked and the rest in 3 m deep trenches and holes. It's really looks like Syrian Damascus after airstrike.
I came back few months later - no changes. The same noise and dust and blocked roads. Sure it has nothing to do with motels in vicinity but to call this warzone "great location"? Only if you came on mountain bike and enjoyed exercises on doorsteps

Room tip: Not road sie

We stayed in Hastings only one night and I am glad we chose the Fairmont, it was fresh, clean and the lovely couple that own it were so accommodating and helpful. We visited hasting on our travels to cycle some of the wonderful tracks, our hosts provided maps and bus timetables so we could find our way to Napier. On our way back we got caught in a rain shower and even though it was after midday and we checked out early morning, they let us freshen up in our room. What excellent service, I would recommend staying at the fairmont.
