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 Zealand8 contributions2 helpful votes
Average motel style run by a hotel group. Ordered through booking.vom breakfast included. Nothing delivered so sent a message at 9:00pm. No reply. Office unattended at 8:00am so telephoned. Got a central customer service. They tried to contact the duty manager but got voice mail. They turned up as we were about to leave so offered a credit which was good but a bit late

We booked through the Flight Centre as we had vouchers to use up, we were terribly disappointed with the room 8. The photos online look good but….Travellers beware there is no reception, only a phone number. On arrival the fron glass door has a massive big crack in the glass from top to bottom. There is no heat pump/air con but two heaters were provided. Sadly these have been let go. I stayed here a few years ago when it was not part of the ‘U Studios Group’ and it was lovely. The toilet door has been removed, the bathroom basin cracked, the glass ware and crockery etc filthy and disgusting. We washed this first up but chose to eat dinner out and booked another motel for the next night even though we had already paid for two nights. The next morning we packed up and went out for breakfast too. The kitchen is so old and the place smells it to. Rodent traps very evident. There was no cover/sheet over the duvet but the sheets themselves were clean on a very uncomfortable bed. The light shade was mouldy, the blinds were useless, the curtains were strung over the door. There had been an attempt at a new paint job in places. All the rooms looked the same hence why we left early.

Room Tip: If you are only after a set of clean sheets, then this is for you. Anything more go elsewhere.

Response from Chinmay Naik, General Manager at U Studios Masterton
Responded 25 Jun 2023
Dear Racgra, thank you for you feedback. Our team work hard to ensure all guests have the best stay possible. Your comments in regard to the dishes have been discussed with our housekeeping team and we will ensure this does not happen again. The glass in the front door has been measured and we are awaiting it’s installation. Due to the location of the property, we do have to make sure that we have adequate pest control in all rooms, these pose no threat to humans or domestic animals. These should however not be visible. This has been rectified. Unfortunately, the agent you had booked your stay through had not provided any contact details for you, so we were unable to call or email you prior to arrival. The property is not manned 24hrs a day, but someone can be at the property on short notice. Guests arriving outside out stated hours of 9am and 5pm are directed to our call centre who help with the check-in procedure. Thank you again for your feedback.

Terrible experience. 0/5. You cant check in within 24hrs of booking (in the small print), couldnt get hold of them by phone, no one in reception, had to book another hotel for the evening. Hotel would not refund or even offer a discount for not using room. Disgraceful service.

We stayed at U studio for one night on a girls' weekend away. The room had everything that we needed. somewhere clean and safe to stay, with friendly staff. The bed was comfy, the kitchen had all we needed - tea / coffee facility, fridge, stove, free milk on arrival. The rooms had a standalone fan, and heaters. Plus an Iron and ironing table. We would definitely by back to U Studio. Thank you team for making our stay comfortable.

Great accomodation here for the family! The Villa is beautiful and has a very warm feeling like it is your own place. The Manager on site has exceptional service and the facilities are pristine and very clean. I would recommend this place 100%. The Villa can hold up to a group of 12!! That’s a house all to yourselves! Definitely use again next time I am down in Masterton.

The room was clean but just the stuff are pretty dated which we didn’t really expected. But we had a good time here and the Asian manger boy was very helpful, very friendly staff here. We definitely recommend this.

Beautiful set of apartments with amazing views of the Wairarapa. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Pool and grassy area in middle is great for more of a community feel if others are staying there too, or just to lie in the Sun and get away from it all.

I have stayed here several times, but now it is under new management. Waited 45 min for the manager to show up. I travel without a phone so had no means of contacting them. The Room was small and very dated and had an ant issue. BBQ wasn’t working properly and no daily room servicing. I will not stay here again!

Kia Ora Mike, We are so sorry to hear that you had issues when you stayed with us. First of all this guest arrived earlier than check-in hours which is 2pm-7pm and our manager was purchasing some supplies before 2pm, he checked the cameras every 10 mins to make sure someone arrived. Also we explained to you that we would clean your room first. Secondly, as this guest stayed here several times I assume this guest has already met the size of the room and that we have moved some minor furniture from each room so the rooms now have more space than before. Thirdly, this guest mentioned about the ant issue in his room and our housekeeper cleaned them up. Our manager had checked the room couple of times and provided an another room if the ant came back. Fourthly, we did service every day for you during this guest stay and our manager explained to him if his personal belongs were on the bed, we would not touch the bed as avoiding guest property disputes. Last but not least, our manager provided a new long lighter as this guest requested to use the BBQ everyday and explained how to safe use the BBQ. We feel sad that our service has not met your expectation and thanks for your understanding. Please email us for any further assistance ust5810@uhotelgroup.com Regards, Edison
