We needed an overnight stay for a function in Hamilton. Ventura was handy to the venue and proved an excellent choice. Upgrade to king bed and spa bath with a generous continental breakfast included in the very reasonable price. The room and bed were clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay again.

Have stayed here countless times as it is not too far away from restaurants, easy to get to, reasonable price, comes with a good continental breakfast and has free parking. Unfortunately sometimes there are inconsiderate guests who have loud conversations in the corridors in the early hours when they come back from a night out - not the hotels fault.... More

The Ventura Inn was good value for money with decent sized room. Pleasant and helpful staff accommodating to our ever changing needs. Excellent location, close to super markets and not far from the city center. The only thing i could fault was "that lift" lol. Overall loved It and have already recommend to my family and friends.... well everyone!!

This is my preferred accommodation in Hamilton and it didn't disappoint last week. Comfortable room, helpful and pleasant staff, free breakfast and always consistent. It's close to restaurants, cafes, river walks and Hamilton East, plus grocery shops and banks.

It was at first no going to be a stop over at Hamilton but in the end we decided not to drive back to Auckland so we booked in at the 'Ventura', and had a suprise night away. Checking in was very friendly and helpful. The room was well, roomy, as specially as it was a studio. A small problem... More

Ventura Inn is a pleasant three - storey accommodation serviced by an elevator is close to the city centre, and has mostly covered car parking. We have a first floor unit with a slightly temperamental entry keycard. The door opens into a kitchen/dining/living area. The kitchen has a microwave and toaster, but no stove or elements. It is well equipped... More

Dear Paul S Thanks for your 5 out of 5 review and comments on our Standard Suite option. As you mentioned these are a good choice for 1 or 2 guests needing extra space and a kitchenette, especially on longer stays. Some of our suites do have pull-out sofa beds which are popular with families for children to sleep on,... More

I stayed here with my mum when she visited in the weekend. Were looking for something affordable and close to town. The location is excellent, just a short walk to the main restaurants. The room was clean and well laid out. It had a shower over the bath which had great pressure and a constant temperature. The bathroom could've used... More

Booked 2 nights through the internet. Well located, friendly staff, good sized, well maintained rooms and bathroom (ours had a shower over a spa bath). Complimentary continental breakfast is excellent - selection of cereals and yoghurts, fruit, juices, toast, crumpets, danishes.

I do not recommend to book this motel. The service is almost absent. The motel receptionist is extremely uninformed, the meal allowances were misplaced. Receptionist had no idea which restaurants will accept the meal allowances that were already paid for. Room was not ready by the check in time, and we had to wait for over 1.5 hours for it... More

Dear Kristina3399 Thanks for the feedback. I'm really surprised to read your comments on the staff considering the great feedback we normally get. I'm also not aware of any issues regarding rooms not being ready as generally have our rooms ready well before the normal check-in time of 2pm. I'd love to discuss this further so I can follow this... More
