The room was quite small but had everything we needed for a comfortable night. The host turned on the heat pump for us as we walked in the door and was keen to show us how everything worked. The unit was spotlessly clean and the spa bath was perfect on the very cold night. We would have appreciated an extra... More

We stayed here for one night to break up the journey on our way up to Auckland Airport. Great little find and we could have easily stayed longer. The accommodation was well kept and clean. Kitchen had all we needed for the night. Tea, coffee and milk was a nice touch. Good sized bathroom with lovely spa bath. Great for... More

Hogan is providing a very personal yet professional service. Clean, tidy and very modern furnished rooms, I loved the little lounge in the studio. Stayed there during a private trip. Travelling on my own I felt safe and secure upstairs. The Ballinor Motor Inn has now been added as a recommended place for our business travellers, too.

This time we were only staying one night but it's an ideal place to stay over night or for longer. On arrival it was wet and dark but Hogan had put on the heater in our room. There had been a slight misunderstanding re bed configuration and Hogan was so apologetic. Within minutes we had another room which was more... More

Stayed at this motor inn during the week, have been very wary of motor inns over the years due to terrible service and quality of accommodation. Could not have been happier with our choice here, had a loft room overlooking the main road but could not hear any traffic very soundproof. Would also like to note that the man that... More

We stayed overnight in one of the spa rooms. We were given a very efficient tour of the room and explanation of how to work the TV/Sky and spa bath, most likely the best welcome we have ever had at a motel. The spa bath was lovely. The room and bathroom were all very nice, clean and modern. Ours opened... More

Went to Hamilton for a wedding and stayed here for one night. Early check in was extremely helpful, service was excellent! Room exceeded our expectations, very nice, clean and private. Spa bath was a bonus. Would definitely stay here again :-)

The apartment was clean and fairly well equipped. The spa bath was lovely. However we had a corner plot which was very dark and the outside area was small and uninviting. Staff were very friendly and full of local information.
