Review of Amici Motel
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 1 Oct 2016
we found the rooms ideal for the purpose of our family visit....
the service by the motel operators was very good.
the water pressure in the shower is week...but nothing a handyman cannot attend to.
the price was reasonable for a motel.
Date of stay: September 2016
Room Tip: rooms closer to the conferance room are newer.

    Being a Top Trip Adviser 10 motel in hasting's I didn't Hesitate in bookinga standard room in this motel. Man what a mistake, this place is run down and dated. Old Raggidy retro fittings. The very old shower had so little pressure we considered showering at a friends house. The Tatty sofa in the lounge was awful, yet there was a very large T.V in the room, but with no sky the choice of viewing options was very limited so why not have a smaller T.V and spend those dollars on room fittings that don't make the room feel like a low security prison cell. The bed was nice and comfortable. But there was no bedroom door, and as the room has a glass front door, all the light from outside shines into the bedroom, meaning my wife got very little sleep. I don't like writing bad reviews but i feel this room was unfit for sale. Maybe the better rooms were alot better than this but, I Can't recommend a standard room at this motel to anyone. The staff were friendly and didn't mind us checking out half an late which was nice.

    Room tip: Don't get the standard room.

    Thank you for putting up your review,Sorry you didnt enjoy your stay,re the Sky we did just have the Sky man in whom did an up date on all the sky boxes but sorry without anyone informing me they weren't working because of a technical hitch I wasnt to know,as soon as a guest saw me the problem was sorted in an hour,By the sky man being phoned,
    I am the new Manager here and will look at a door being put in,Yes that would be annoying from the light, Sorry,Next time you come you may like to try an Executive Suite ,Which are priced higher but very nice,we are always hear to help and if never happy please come to discuss as we could have changed rooms for you with hesitation,
    Thank you for staying with us and would love to see you again

    Clean room but very dated. The bedroom didn't have a door to seperate it from the lounge and the door to the unit was glass with a bright light outside that kept me awake all night. The shower had terrible pressure, couch was uncomfortable and the whole unit felt like it needed a refresh. The only thing that was okay was the bed was newish and comfortable, though hardly got any sleep in it as the outside light was so bright

    Central location of Amici suited us because we were here for a family event. Room was quiet and clean. Only criticism is the bathroom in our room - a little bit small and ants on bathroom counter in the morning. However, have stayed in Executive suites on previous visits and these rooms were excellent.

    Room tip: Choose Executive suites.

    We stayed for one night at The Amici in Hastings. It was spacious, comfortable, spotlessly clean, modern and peaceful. The hosts were very friendly. Would highly recommend to friends and family and would go again, next time we are in Hastings.
