    "Brilliant!"

    regretfully had an accident 1st night of 2 night stay.(along with 9 other burly men)

    Allie could not have been more helpful as I spent next day in bed (missed her vocation should have been a nurse)

    Owners in middle of major upgrade of units as good as anything I have stayed in especially for value (spent last 12 yrs staying at various motels for work) most of the guys struggled to finish the cooked breakfast. We will return!

    "One night stay"

    Very clean tidy room if a bit small but as we were only staying one night it was good.. Wonderful cooked breakfast. However no where to hang clothes. If we had been going to a posh function it would have been awkward. Very nice location and as I said high standard of cleanliness. Thanks.

    "Lovely stay, Thanks!"

    Absolutely perfect for what we needed, rooms were clean and inviting and the bed was lovely and comfortable!! :) Gardens were beautiful, but the nasty weather meant we didn't see much of them!! Highly recommend the Amble In Motel to anyone needing accommodation in Stratford.

    "Very clean and a pleasure to stay at."

    Only stayed one night but will stay again thats for sure. The room was very clean (The stainless kitchen bench top is the cleanest and most shiny I have ever seen!!) It was raining during our stay so didnt get to use the outside table etc but it would have been pleasent to sit out there with breakfast if it was sunny. Would be a very handy location if you were looking at going up the mountain. All in all a very clean and pleasent place to stay.

    "Two Happy Days"

    Very good value for money, extremely well maintained, and unlike the soulless character of many motels. When staying at Amble In, spend some time in the garden at the rear of the motel - it has a remarkable history. When next in the district, will definitely stay here again.

    "Would Recommend"

    This was our 3rd stay at The Amble In Motel. Each time we have found the owners to be polite and helpful. They appear to be gradually up dating the rooms. Our unit had new decor through out. The units are immaculately clean and spacious with everything you would want, and are reasonably priced. Our only disappointment this time was the mountain decided not to make an appearance!! In the past we have had spectacular views of the mountain from our unit. There is also the lovely adjoining Ngaere Gardens to enjoy.

    We would highly recommended this property.

    "A clean and pleasing motel, but rather cramped accommodation."

    We had a small unit with a double bed, and assume that the other units with just a double or twin beds are of similar size. There was only one comfortable chair in the unit, and only one bedside table - so in one way was not entirely suitable for two people.The kitchen utensils were the bare minimum, and there were no scissors provided. Wi-fi was charged, and the vast majority of motels we stayed in whilst in NZ, Wi-fi was free of charge. There were no drawers for our clothes, and this is a disadvantage when staying several nights. There was some noise overnight from the road and the railway near by.

    Despite it being rather cramped and basic, the manager/proprietor was very helpful and efficient, and the unit was clean, had good cooling and heating facilities, had all the normal facilities, apart from what I have mentioned above, and was very good value. There were lovely extensive grounds surrounding the motel, which were well worth exploring. Our main sliding doors (unit 8) opened onto the parking area, which was a shame, and I have a feeling that units 1 to 6 would be the better choice from this point of view, as their main doors opened onto a garden area, but these units were even closer to the main road and railway. The details might suggest that you had views of Mount Taranaki from the motel, but due to the high hedge etc, you needed to go outside onto the road to see the mountain (when cloud wasn't covering it!).

The room was clean and the kitchen was well stocked for tea/coffee making .the bed was comfortable with all the necessary duvets required.

    "Handy spot near Mt Taranaki"

    I needed a place near Mt Taranaki. Amble In is situated in a good spot for the mountain. The rooms are clean and tidy, and although close to the main highway there is minimal traffic noise. Recommended for other travelers.

    "Clean and comfy"

    A very clean and comfortable unit. There was not much water pressure in the shower though and this was also affected by the running tap in the kitchen.

    We did however, enjoy our stay and the hostess Elaine was very friendly and welcoming.

    "Amble In, Stratford NZ"

    Lovely property with fantastic gardens, hosts were friendly and most helpful. You do get a bit of road/rail noise, but also great views of Mt Taranaki. Bed was really comfortable, but the shower could do with a bit more pressure. A bit far from town if you have a drink over dinner in town though.

    "Well worth the visit"

    The Amble-In is a lovely motel. The room was scurpulously clean and well maintained. It contained everything we needed. The staff were friendly and helpful, even offering their wet guests the use of an umbrella. The setting is gorgeous, among the gardens. We would definitely stay there again, and happily recommend the motel.

    "Amble In Motel, Stratford"

    We spent a good couple of nights at the Amble In Motel and were quite happy with the standard of accommodation. We thought the motel might have been a bit close to State Highway 3 but this did not prove to be a problem as there was almost no traffic at night. The motel itself was very comfortable and the view of Mt Taranaki from the front of the unit was spectacular. This was my third visit to Taranaki and the only time I've actually seen the mountain. All in all a very pleasant stay.
