3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This hotel was dark, cold, and smelt like chemicals. I was placed in a room with a disabled toilet which was stark with no facility to put any of my toiletries except on the floor. It had a strange plastic soap dispenser on the wall and when in use the water from the shower covered most of the bathroom floor... More

I recently had to spend a night in Hamilton following minor surgery and booked into Ashwood Manor. My room was beautifully presented, spacious, very fresh decor, and clean. I could not fault it if I tried. The hosts - Greg and Lorraine Watson - looked after me wonderfully well. They were friendly and very helpful. I ordered breakfast - generous... More

We stayed in a studio spa unit booked through Wotif at a very good rate. There was minimal road noise and the normal amount of coming and going from neighbours and plumbing noises I have experienced in every hotel/motel I have stayed in at this price. The spa bath was amazing, so deep! And the hand cleanser smelled so nice... More

Thank you for your feedback. We were unaware there were any issues and would have done our best to rectified these had we been informed. We have been unable to find the hole in the floor. Out of consideration to all our guests, the spas automatically turn off at 10pm. We pride ourselves on cleanliness and going the extra mile... More

I booked a friend as a last minute booking and had no time to look on the internet or read reviews about it. But it was the best thing that could have happened.

We stayed here one night here during Equidays 2014, the room was very clean and functional. The beds were very comfortable. The hostess was incredibly helpful and lovely to deal with. We would definitely stay again.

We stayed at this property for 3 nights and would love to stay there again. The property is close to central Hamilton and our room was clean and spacious. Moreover, the owners - Lorraine and Greg are always willing to help.
