Clean rooms and kept spotless during our stay. Good beds and free wifi. Owner and staff helpful. Not right in town but keen walkers would make it into town, quiet location, no traffic noise. Would stay again.

This (as with many motels in Whanganui) is on Somme Parade - and I was a little worried about the street noise - but it didn't bother me. I found the bed really comfy and I...

My partner and I were looking for somewhere cheap to stay to conclude our holiday. We found it. Astral isn't anything special, it's not going to appease any celebrities but for those travelling on a budget it's pretty good. Close(ish) to town. So not hard to find things to do. Rooms are fairly good. Bed was a little firm for...

Astral Motel is a well situated, comfortable motel. We were warmly welcomed and well cared for. The unit had been modernised. Was lovely having a separate kitchen/dining area and a comfortable bed and couch to relax on. Will definitely stay there again.

Free upgrade, which allowed us to have separate beds. Thank you. Close to the park and the main center. Rooms are very clean and great cooking facilities. Highly recommend this hotel. Very comfortable stay and thank you for your lovely service. From the Wolfpack Team.

About 20 minutes walk along the riverwalk into town, and opposite a great park for kids - so great location for all. The rooms are spacious, clean and warm with a kitchenette, decent shower and 2 beds. We stayed in winter so didn't use the pool or the garden area but it looked great for a warm, sunny day. Very...

An excellent value for money motel in Whanganui. The room that we are offered by Ryan had all the facilities that you could want when travelling. The room was large with a full lounge suite, all was very clean and the wood bed excellent and very comfortable. I would definitely stay here again and would also recommend it to everyone...
