Booked on booked.com, for specials. Great competitive price $85. Room we got was below average. Tired looking. If the competiveness is to get people in, I'm afraid I wouldn't come here again. I am prepared to pay good price but willing to check special deals through Booked.Com. Some obvious things were,light bulbs not working, slide door into bathroom not sliding,you... More

We were there less than 2hrs while I hunted for other accommodation I have never seen a room so dirty I didn't want to touch anything.The only positive thing was they refunded all our money except deposit straight away and we booked into motel next door who lucky for us had a cancellation.

I booked this motel as it was reasonably priced for myself and 2 teenage sons and was within walking distance of the venue we were going to that night. I also liked the sound of the heated indoor pool. For the price we paid I don't think we really got value for money. The room was clean but very dated.... More

The bad bits The carpets had so many stains I wasnt sure if it was part of the pattern or just ingrained stains (it was the latter) The bathroom has mold stains on the walls and the... More

Sliding door to bathroom - jammed regularly - could trap you if you were on your own 4. Wallpaper peeling, Rooms very tired 5.Arrived about 10pm... More

2 nights at the Grosvenor while at an Expo in Hamilton. - Location was good and central. - The shower pressure was AMAZING and the spa bath was lovely. - The pool wasn't hot enough to entice me in during winter. - The front desk was helpful but very flustered and busy. - Breakfast in the restaurant was nice.

I booked 4 Nights stay at the Grosvenor recently to attend my sons National Swimming Meet, that occupied my time mornings and evenings each day. This Motor Inn is perfect for this type of required accommodation, the staff were friendly, service housekeeping timely and efficient, and due to maintenance of signage improvements, I would have expected disruption and a lessening...
