Lovely! Clean and comfortable! We had to check in after hours due to a road diversion but this made made very easy and they even had the Heatpump turned on to warm up our room on the unexpected cold night. The housekeeping staff were so lovey and did an amazing job. We throughly enjoyed our stay.

We stayed at Portmans Motor Lodge for 3 nights and totally enjoyed the stay. The staff were lovely, the room was very clean and tidy and it was very quiet at night. Would definitely stay again when we are back in Hawkes Bay.

Spent two nights at this lovely hotel, arrived, checked in and settled well. We were welcomed by the owners into a lovely spacious unit with great parking right outside the unit. As we arrived before the Labour weekend the swimming pool was not yet opened, to our children’s disappointment and probably a good thing as we may never have left the motel. Comfortable beds, loved the two tvs in the main room and also bedroom. A very spacious bathroom. The kitchen had all the equipment we needed to cook and eat. The heat pump/ air conditioner unit and also a fan was placed in the unit which we used. We were in unit 19 and it was very quiet - we tried to make sure our voices matched the environment 😊. We actually selected this motel based on the owners response to previous reviews which we found to be quite honest and hilarious therefore we knew this would be a great place to stay! If ever your in Hastings definitely consider Portmans Motor lodge. We will definitely be booking at Portmans again. Thank you for a great accomodation to end our family road trip for the school holidays.

This Motor Lodge is conveniently situated near main roads and close to a petrol station. There is an easy walk to the shopping and cafe/restaurant area. We received a friendly reception and were made to feel very welcome.

My husband I and our two teenage sons stayed for a few nights at this motel in January. We stayed in a one bedroom and our sons were in a studio room next door. The rooms were spotless and the beds were super comfy. It had all the amenities we needed - the air conditioning was a big plus given we were staying in summer, free wi-fi included which was excellent and the added bonus of a swimming pool to use as well. Kaye and Brian were fabulous hosts, very knowledgeable about the local attractions, extremely helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend staying here and we will definitely be back.
