Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Auckland Central, New Zealand

We stayed two nights Friday and Saturday, the room was clean and well equipped, the owner friendly.
It was very noisy on Friday night due to the railway line running along the back of the motel and the main road at the front. However their was less train noise on the Saturday night.
The bed was pretty uncomfortable so all round not much sleep. The sofa bed in the lounge area was also uncomfortable to sit on.

Reviews are good reflection of what to expect.
A clean, modern motel nicely appointed. Plenty of towels (- important to me) and loved the spa bath after a long day on the go. Helpful host and well looked after. Would definitely stay again when coming down this way.

Really nice place, very clean, a comfy bed, lovely shower and good layout and size of unit (we had a studio) shame about the noise from the train over the back but the worst part was TRAFFIC NOISE as the front door felt like it must be made of cardboard and didn’t filter any of the road noise. Would I stay there again - no. We had two nights there.

As motels go this one was pleasant. Spacious room. Very clean and well equipped. Cheaper quality bed and sheets. The trains were a bit annoying. The free lemons on departure were a nice touch. Would I sty here again? No but thats not because its bad - I stayed here because thats where work put me - its just not my usual standard of accomodation. All the best :)

Have stayed at Bassingers Motor Lodge previously and called in to see if they had a room available. We were in luck and were warmly greeted by Garry & Monica. We were offered a Cooked or Continental Breakfast. Also Garry gave us the password to the very fast fibre internet service. The rooms have all been newly carpeted and most of the rooms have been double glazed and fitted with Air Con/Heat Pumps since the last time we stayed. Nice to see this hard working couple improving their rooms and keeping up with the times. The Cooked Breakfast was delicious. If passing through Levin again this will definitely be our NUMBER ONE CHOICE.

On travelling down from Auckland after an overseas cruise, we felt we need to stop for an overnight rest - found this motel, very appealing from the road. We were greeted by Garry (a very friendly & jovial character) and requested a Studio Suite, but he upgraded us to a lovely 1 Bedroom Suite with a Spa. The suite was very clean and comfortable - unfortunately you cannot get away from the trains in Levin. I note that the previous guest to review this motel had stayed in 2 other motels in Levin also whereby he experienced train noise.All in all a very good stay and would not hesitate in returning should the need arise.

Bassingers is a extremely well maintained motel with well maintained rooms and incredibly friendly and helpful service.

The owner offered to lend me his car to go out and about, which was incredibly generous, and one I might have taken advantage of.

However, what virtually all of the previous reviews fail to mention is the train line that is just metres behind the hotel.

Trains thunder by here at incredible volume during the day AND night. On the first night there, 3 trains passed between 1.45am and 2.30am, and there was another one at 4.00am and 6.00am, making sleep almost impossible, Other nights had trains every two hours.

Whilst this might be OK for a one night stay, a whole week of it, working during the day, is pretty unbearable.

It really is extremely unfortunate given the extremely positive aspects of this motel, but when working away, good quality is essential, and it's virtually impossible here.

I had the most unfortunate experience staying here for business firstly I discovered vomit under the toilet seat then notice something disgusting splashed across the tv screen when I pointed it out the manager insulted kiwi clients for how they treat the rooms rather than apologize he went on to say this is why I am getting out! Well good bloody riddance you Arrogant self entitled twit no customer service skills also as we were here on business and working night shift our room wasn't serviced all three days- no toilet paper no towels no emptying of rubbish bins I absolutely hope the owners see this review and take some action as this idiot doesn't deserve to be in the hospitality industry or even new Zealand in my opinion. What a loser
