This is the second time we have stayed at this Motel. It is great value for money, so clean/tidy & fresh. Really easy to drive into town. Has a kitchen/sky/spa bath & a great little secure little back smoking/garden area & chairs. The man on reception is so nice.

We stayed here for one night. Would recommend to anyone passing by Hamilton. There isn't a great deal to do in Hamilton but for the time we were there the accommodation was perfect + great service, good value for money, modern and clean - the mattress was a little soft and our bulb was out in the room

Stayed one night on our trip but this was one of the best Motels we have ever stayed in. Good location. Well appointed, roomy, nicely furnished and scrupulously clean. Good sized bathroom and wonderful water pressure. The owner Colin? went out of his way to make sure we were settled and understood the finer points which he didn't have to.... More

Arrived quite late at the Ballinor, and was surprised to find Hogan, our host, still waiting for us. A friendly, clean, motel, who did everything possible to make our stay, an enjoyable one. Would recommend this establishment to all travellers, looking for a friendly family environment.

Highly, very highly recommended. Lovely clean units and excellent location. A particular thanks to you for organizing a last minute studio for my parents at a great price when I forgot to book them in with us. They too were thrilled with their unit and they are no easy to please when it comes to accommodation.

Always a pleasure staying here - rooms are lovely, tidy and have everything you need. Hogan and his staff are always lovely. My preferred place to stay every time I am in Hamilton. LOve the privacy of the courtyard rooms.

Good service, which we really needed at the time with a new baby. Good location which was useful for heading out for takeaways etc. Would definitely head back as price was very affordable - well done and see you again.

We always stay at the Ballinor when we are in Hamilton. The Accomodation is always great and the hosts are friendly. Last visit, however our neighbours kept us up till early hours of the morning, they decided to have a few drinks with others at the venue. It was our first stay with our Granddaughter and we asked them twice... More
