“Cat comes free1”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

This was very warm, clean and comfortable. Great room with spa bath and air conditioner. The staff were very friendly as was the ginger cat! He seems to be the real owner (in his opinion). We would definitely stay again if we were passing through.

Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear you enjoyed our spa rooms and found it to be clean and comfortable, and yes you are right. Puss does think he owns the place and makes it his duty to say hello to all the guests. We would look forward to having you stay next time you pass through.

We stayed in both the executive suit & the presidential suit. They were both wonderful. Service was outstanding, room was one of the cleanest & best kept, that I have stayed in. We had a birds eye view of the mountain from the presidential suit, while sitting in the out door spa. Definitely worth the money. The heated floor tiles are a real bonus as we stayed in winter. Will be staying here again on a future return to Stratford.

Room Tip: Presidential suit is worth the extra money, if you like out door spas & a great view. Also quiet...

Thank you for your review on Amity Court Motel. We are very proud of all of our suites, especially the Presidential Suite so it's great that you were able to experience both. The Presidential Suite boasts a private spa bath with a stunning view of the spectacular Mount Taranaki, and we believe that Stratford has the best view of both peaks. We feel that it is a winning combination and are glad you agree. We look forward to seeing you again.

It is very hard to fault this motel. it was very comfortable and warm on a chilly winters day the under floor heating was a lovely touch. It was so quiet between rooms you cant hear the people in the next room. I loved it all!!

Thank you for your review on our motel. We are pleased you made the most of our extra comforts that we have in the rooms such as the heated tiles. We believe they make a real difference to our rooms. A lot of effort was made to ensure that Amity Court was as sound proof as possible and its great to know that it is working.

More than pleasantly surprised by the excellent level of accommodation and service. The unit (Rm 1) was spacious, the decor was agreeably neutral, the kitchen/lounge/bathroom had all the mod cons, the king size bed was sooo comfortable, and the bathroom..warm tiles on a cold morning,.love that shower and spa bath. The unit was impeccably clean with everything in its place. Staff were great, full of helpful info...even arranged for me to visit a nearby farm! They don't do that in the city! Excellent rates as well. Definitely returning.

Room Tip: Apparently there's a train track nearby but you'll be struggling to hear any noise.

Thank you for taking the time to review Amity Court Motel. We love receiving feedback from guests, especially when they have had a great time. We believe that Stratford is a great little town, full of hidden treasures so it is awesome that you were able to experience some of that with us. We are nestled right under the stunning Mount Taranaki so we know how important those heated tiles can be on colder winter mornings. Thanks again for your lovely review and we look forward to seeing you again.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom family unit. I thought the price was affordable, the room was spacious, had a heat-pump and a spa bath. The guy on reception was lovely and friendly. Overall a great stay and we definitely plan to stay here again when we come to Stratford. Thank you for sending the stuff that we had accidentally left behind :)

We loved it!!! Private,serene and very modern..we couldn't of asked for a better, more relaxing time...the staff even made sure by the time we got there that the heat pump was on (and was the quietest ive ever heard) and the heated tiles in bathroom and the jacuzzi. This made for a memorable, relaxing and totally worth it get away...will totally recommend Amity Court to anyone...We are already planning our next stay..Thank you Amity Court see you soon...

From the moment you walk into reception you are made to feel very welcome. Even the cat comes out to greet you! We were in Room 11 which is at the end of the building and on the groud floor. The unit was very clean and the under floor heating a real bonus. The heated towel rack in the very spacious bathroom was also switched on which made the room feel very welcoming. The ammenities are very adequate although we only spent a night here, we are definitely coming back for longer next time. The super king sized beds were just amazing and so very comfortable. We had a social gathering at the Stratford Club and it was a nice gentle walk to and from town. To top off a great evening - a soak in the spa bath was just a lovely way to relax and the shower in the morning was also excellent. Well done Amity Court Motel - you have our vote and we will definitely be coming back.

Thank you for your great review on Amity Court Motel. We are pleased to hear you felt welcome from the moment you walked in. Our friendly ginger cat helps add to the 'home' feel we believe. We want people to relax when they stay with us which is why many of our rooms have a spa bath in the room and all showers have great pressure. We are a small walk from the main shops but we feel that is a bonus because we are close enough to walk to town, but far enough away that you have privacy and security in your rooms. We look forward to seeing you back again and we are so pleased we met your expectations.
