“Only place to stay in Stratford”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Amity Court is on the northern edge of town. It's modern and well equipped - good kitchen, double glazing, a nice-sized table to work on (with handy power points right there for your laptop!) and the bathroom is just fabulous. It's spacious, has a spa bath, an excellent shower and under floor heating! Nothing better on a winter's morning.

If there's any downside it was the train that rumbled by early in the morning but I suspect that's unavoidable in Stratford.

Thank you for your great review. We tried to make our rooms as practical as possible as a lot of our guests are workers, so its great to hear that we hit the mark. Yes, you are right. there is a train that travels through Stratford. Our motel has been built so that it leads away from the road and train track. If you are a light sleeper or think you will be disturbed by this, please ask us for a room near the back of the facility. We will try our best to ensure that all our guests have a great nights sleep.

Travelling with my two daughters and 2 young grandchildren we were very happy to have a lovely comfortable spacious unit for us all. Nothing to complain about at all except the weather which cleared up on the last day to show us the beautiful Mt Taranaki. Thank you to all.

Thank you for taking the time to review Amity Court Motel. We try to provide a comfortable place for everyone and we are glad that you were all catered for. Our weather can be a mixed bag, but that is expected when we are closely situation by the gorgeous Mount Taranaki/Egmont. Its a small price to pay for such a stunning view, which we are glad you got to enjoy on your last day.

Hospitable and accommodating hosts. Clean, comfortable, quiet and modern motel. Can't ask for much more than that, especially the quiet part, being on the main road that it is. You could do a whole lot worse!

Stayed here last weekend on a trip to Stratford to visit family. Very nice and modern place with nice clean rooms. Great rate

Heated floors were a nice touch and a useable kitchenette. Bathroom is huge.

A nice place to stay. Clean, quiet, modern and the heat pump is efficient summer and winter. My one and only complaint is that it's often hard to get a room on short notice as they are frequently fully booked.

Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you enjoy staying with us but are disappointed to hear that you often find it hard to book a room due to our high occupancy. If you are spending a lot of time in Stratford, feel free to talk to Jason about coming to some sort of arrangement. We like to take care of our regulars and would love to accommodate you whenever possible.

Jason is friendly and helpful, just that little bit further out which I knock off in evening to help me continue on my way to Wanganui or New Plymouth as a sales rep. The rooms are new, clean,comfortable, reasonably priced and bfasts are good.
