Hamilton-based accommodation provider Astra Motor Lodge is excited to have made it to the top three finalists for the 2015 AA Traveller Supreme Host of the Year award.

AA Traveller writes – When it comes to outstanding customer service, three motels have proven they’re the best in the industry and are now up for a national award.

Far flung Stewart Island’s Bay Motel, Radfords on the Lake in Te Anau, and Astra Motor Lodge in Hamilton are all finalists for the AA Traveller Supreme Host of the Year award.

The coveted award, now in its eighth year, recognises and celebrates motels with exceptional standards of customer service and hospitality. This included examples of placing hot water bottles in beds 10 minutes before guests with medical conditions arrived, to helping a husband surprise his wife on her birthday by organising a romantic waterfront dinner with a personalised cake and chocolate and bubbles for the couple’s room.
