There were 9 of us in our 10pin bowling group and none of us had any issues with Elmore Lodge. We were in walking distance to the bowling centre, it’s a lovely short walk. There are shops which we used often, dairy, hell’s pizza, Chinese and fish shop, the food is great. If you keep walking past these shops there is the Coffee club and the luckiest lotto shop in NZ. I would recommend the Elmore Lodge to anyone, you get free laundry and able to hang your clothes on the line or in the dryer, not many places I’ve stayed at have that. The rooms are serviced every day, we stayed 7 days. Elmore is very clean the beds are excellent so comfortable, perfect. There is no air conditioning but there is a ceiling fan that is so much better, keep us cool at night. All the management and staff are very friendly giving us lots of information, thankyou, we will definitely stay there again.

Very Good Value

We stayed three nights in a Queen Studio unit and while it only has tea and coffee making facilities plus a microwave for cooking, it is more than adequate if you intend eating out elsewhere. The unit was very clean and tidy with ample room and a good amount of storage facilities. Pam and John were welcoming hosts and the cleaning staff were very cheerful and helpful. Will stay there again in future. The fan came in handy and was extremely quiet on the lowest setting during the night.

Would return again

Unit was clean and tidy and everything we wanted for our stay. Beds comfortable and area was quiet so had good sleep. Shower extra good.

Absolutely amazing

Property was great for a family of 6. Heaps to do central to everything we needed. Staff were super friendly and accommodating when our car broke down and we had to stay an extra two nights.

Would recommend

We had a two bedroom for four adults and there was ample space. Nobody complained about their beds and shower was like a massage if turned up and ample hot water.

The warm welcome feeling like being old friends. After a 24 hour travel of busses, flights and trains it was a welcome home.

Made us feel right at home

John and Pam made us feel right at home at Elmore Lodge Motel - they were so pleased to help us settle in and enjoy our stay. We are so grateful for their wonderful gesture of supporting the Peace Run.

Conveniently Located

Elmore Lodge is a very conveniently located motel across from the Hastings Hospital. It is an older motel but the bathrooms have been freshened and are exceptionally clean. The main bed/living area is a little dated but the extremely helpful staff and proximity to where I needed to be outweighed that.
