Stayed here twice & would highly recommend it to others. Great rooms everything you need. Great spa bath & very comfortable beds. Hogan would go out of his way to please & his staff are always friendly. Hogan has exceeded all expectations & we will stay here again for sure. Well done. Hope to see you again in the near... More

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

Room was very small and off street parking was difficult. Reception wasn't manned in the evening despite saying that they would be back in 5 minutes, tried multiple times in the evening. Clean and had free wifi access

I've been extremely lucky to stay here many times for work purposes. I've stayed at many other motels in Hamilton but this one is by far the best! Hogan is the perfect host and has always gone out of his way to make my stay perfect. Will continue to stay here, will recommend it to others and will definitely stay... More

We were blown away by the informative and friendly welcome from Hogan. We have travelled the world and stayed in many different types of accommodation and our greeting by Hogan was simply the best!!! He showed us around our rooms and explained everything clearly and with a sense of humour. Great place to stay. Thanks Hogan and your team.

This motel is on a road with many others and it doesn't stand out. Although the service is very good every thing else is average. Mind you all the competition looks the same. Here is an opportunity to do something a bit extra to go with the great service and make people want to return. The free wifi was great... More

Have had the pleasure of staying at The Ballinor Motel several times now, and every time it's a great stay. The rooms are well appointed, all the little things have been thought of (like a power point next to the mirror, great lighting in the bathroom, heat pump, power near the table for your laptop, the clock was left switched...
