One night and one night too many. I regret to say the one and only positive aspect of the overnight stay was the lovely young lady at the reception at check in. The carpet was dark and yet you could still see it was riddled with uncleaned patches or stains whichever is applicable. There were cobwebs in the main area,... More

Room was not good enough. In dire need of an upgrade, wallpaper hanging off the walls, cigarette burns in the basin, bath leaked so mouldy skirting boards. But most of all the room had large dirty grease marks on the carpet from the doorway, half way across the room. It look so gross that you didn't want to walk over... More

We stayed here about five years ago and had a great experience so we re-booked assuming it would be the same... well, you know what they say about assumption. The entire complex is dated and if that were the only factor, I could get over it. But it wasn't the dated decor or in-wall radios with crackling speakers that didn't... More

Stayed for two nights during queens birthday weekend. ROOM DIRTY The ceiling fan was hanging from wire, the cover had come apart from the top. When i went to turn it on, it was turning uneven. I reported it to the office as i was worried because my childs bed was under the fan. The response I got from the... More

A couple of old girls away for a night. We chose this place because of its location and price. It was okay. It is tired but it was clean and had everything we needed. Breakfast was fresh and the lady looked after us well.

When we checked in the last at the counter was quite rude. After arriving in our room we had shower and found that there was mould everywhere. The liquid soap that is provided smelled like someone had poured alcohol all through it. This is a very out of date motel room. They have small towels and very little space to... More

Hello Just an update on a shambles and a disgrace to have a motel like this on Expedia. The Grosvenor Motor Inn Hamilton New Zealand First off the owners do not speak English. Have to use a staff member to interrupt when we discussed problems. Arrived to be given an invoice for $75.00 Paid Expedia $89.00. Arrive in room, visit... More

From the outside this hotel looks like the nicest one on the street. The Tudor style building is a lovely touch, parking is free and easy, and it is very close to shops. We paid $99 for the one night though it is true you get what you pay for. The free WiFi was a huge bonus, it worked well... More

I have stayed at various motels in my time going from backpackers through to high end and this has to be worst of all. This was on special at WOTIF for $99 per night, I paid a little extra to get cooked breakfasts every morning - $125. When I got there they had no compendium to tell me where things... More

This is Not an establishment that I would recommend to anybody. The rooms are dated and worn, (the photos they use in advertising must be extremely old) , basic fixtures struggle to work and/or don't work, towels are small and worn, and the room smelt of mould and damp. However it was the customer service that I found the most... More
