We have stayed here on several occasions over the last eighteen months. The rooms we have had have all been spacious, well maintained and well serviced. It is close to Hamilton's CBD and central to many places of interest for the intrepid tourist/ traveller. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. So too are the motel's employees. A major plus... More

We contacted Lake Point Hotel to use for family and friends travelling to Hamilton for our wedding in late October 2014. The hosts were helpful and kind, reserving a number of rooms for our guests to call and book so we could all stay together. In the lead up to the wedding, staff were great! Rooms were clean, tidy, happy... More

My family rented a room over easter weekend and were surprised at the value we received. The room had a kitchenette with fridge, microwave, toaster, sink and all the essentials. We were lucky enough to get two king beds with a single one to spare! Though the hotel is not new (it has some water mould on the bathroom ceiling... More

We spent a night at this motel which was great. After we left the owners discovered my partner had left her passport and credit cards in the room before we had even missed them. They then contacted us through our next of kin in England and then sent the documents on to us by courier. Brilliant service with a friendly... More

My partner and I arrived to find our room we had booked hadnt been vacated. We were upgraded to a spa room which was lovely. Per previous reviews, it is basic but has everything you need. Great price, location and everything all clean. The owner was a very friendly man, easy to deal with and just overall very helpful. Had... More

This is a basic motel as the price suggested. The studio room was very spacious, so was the bathroom and shower. As it was an upstairs room, it was light and airy with morning sun streaming in. There was no air-conditioning, just a fan and a small heater. We used the heater a couple of times early in the morning... More

The cheapest hotel we stayed in for our 2 weeks in NZ. It's nothing flash. Good for 1 night before you drive 120km to the airport. The room was large (room 5) so plenty of space. On arrival the manager was friendly and other staff all smiles. It was clean but basic. Must say the wifi was good. ( and... More

The room was stuffy and dank which is probably why there was an industrial air freshener unit running. It wasn't particularly clean. Usually NZ motels have a sparkling kitchen but this was grubby and the washing up gear dubious. We decided we would leave after 20 mins and told the owner why. He still debited our credit card (we had... More

Lake Point Motel offers reasonable accommodation fairly near to the Hamilton city centre. It is nothing particularly flash, but then it doesn't pretend to be. I had a very big room. Strange to say but it was almost too big, with a huge open space somewhat lacking in character. The extensive plain walls all became quite bland and featureless, only... More
