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

We have stayed here a number of times and like to come back. We find the location quiet but close to town. Clean, comfortable bed and friendly hosts, we always enjoy the big bath too. No doubt we will be back again Thanks .

We stayed in the one bedroomed apartment in the older part of the motel. Whilst the accommodation was clean and modern, the room was hot and stuffy and traffic noise was so bad it was impossible to leave the windows open. It was like living under a bridge and we would not have stayed there had I know the unit... More

We stayed here for one night in two rooms accomodating four and five in each room and found the stay to be very pleasant. The lady at reception was very helpful. She gave us a number to call for the free shuttle to skycity which brought us there within five minutes of calling and back as well . The units... More

Thanks for accommodating us during our weekend in Hamilton. We found our rooms to be lovely and clean and the beds are so comfortable. The rooms have everything you would need for a great stay. The motel is within walking distance to the town centre and the Hamilton nightlife. The hosts are friendly and helpful and they go out of... More

We stayed at this hotel in order to be near a football tournament. Both families found the cost and cleanliness and space of the hotel to be of a high standard. Our hosts were very informative and gave us great local information. Bathrooms were fairly modern. Ground floor rooms though did not have an outstanding view of the area, but... More
