Would recommend this motel to anyone staying in Hamilton, we stayed for one night on way to Auckland, the staff were friendly and helpful and the motel unit was very clean and tidy. Handy location and close to supermarket. Only a $10 taxi ride back from centre of town.

A bonus was his deal... More

A clean room with the most comfortable bed I've slept in since arriving in NZ. The amenities were all new looking and for my family of five, including one teenager, we really appreciated the extra space. I'd stay here again for sure

Very comfortable, lovely and clean but it was the service that made it stand out. Used it on a business trip and we were made to feel welcome and that nothing was too much trouble. Warm and friendly people.

As a host Hogan was very accommodating and showed a very high standard of hospitality. The room was lovely clean and well appointed. And the location of the motel was perfectly situated for us to be able to access the LDS temple and the CBD
