“Somewhere between average and very good...”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

Location: Close to town center (10min walk). Located between main road and the railway line like most of other hotels in Levin.

Rooms: Very spacious rooms (above NZ average) with good sized TV, Kitchen with microwave but no hob. Soap instead of shower gel.

Motel: Seems to be recently renovated. Clean, tidy and welcoming. Friendly staff (only met Motel owner though) Cute and very friendly black and white cat let you pat it whenever you feel you have to.

Others: It adverts free WiFi internet. I got 100MB per day for free - thank you - it was appreciated.

Overall: Good value. I heared both - the road and the trains but not while I was sleeping.

We stayed here on 2 occasions recently. The rooms are big, comfortable, and warm (it's winter). The hosts are friendly and accommodating. The hotel is on the main road (as are most of the other motels), is very easy to find, and close to everything in Levin. I did hear the train one night but Levin is on the rail line - I expected it. The wifi is free, the spa bath is a generous size there were hot plates, microwave, fridge, etc and next time I am in Levin I will stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask the manager for the best room.

A nice motel, one of the cleanest I have stayed in for a very long time. A spa bath, TV in bedroom and lounge room. Warm and well appointed. Would recommend a stay here if needing accommodation in Levin.

Very large and spotless room. The owner was fantastic, very friendly and a great help, ready to go the extra mile.

I had no issues with the road or train noise at all, and slept through the night.

Very comfortable room, and excellent value! I will definitely be staying here any time I am in Levin.

This is the second time we have stayed here and have no complaints. The rooms are spacious and clean, the shower is great and you get extra milk. The free wifi is a total plus (and unexpected) and the parking is in a courtyard so really secure. There has been mention of train noise, and we did hear it this time (last time we were downstairs and didn't hear it). It is important to point out that nearly every motel in Levin is on the train track so I don't think it matters where you stay, you are still going to get a wee bit of noise.

Room Tip: downstairs blocks the noise a wee bit

Big room, good Wifi, good parking. Clean. Everything you want. Levin itself wasn't too attractive (kind of a depressed looking area with kids and bums hanging about) but it was somewhere you have to go through to get from here to there.

Room Tip: Rooms are all inside a courtyard which means they are all quiet and away from traffic. Bit of a rumb...

We stayed at Bassingers on Saturday night and I must say this was one of the nicest, cleanest and friendliest little motels I've stayed at in quite some time. Would not hesitate to recommend this to a traveller, great bang for your buck. The only disadvantage is the trains that go past however that was a very minor inconvenience. I'll definitely go back and stay.

Room Tip: Room 12 was on the ground floor nearest to the road (the furthest away from the train tracks). No r...
