Clean, comfortable and welcoming and in a good location. We would gladly recommend this motel to anyone visiting Hamilton. A few minutes walk to the shops and half an hours walk to the Claudlands Arena.

My parter and I thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay last weekend. We stayed in a studio room, it was super tidy, very comfortable and the perfect size for us. The bathroom was lovely. Most importantly, the hosts were incredibly friendly and helpful and made us feel welcome the minute we arrived. Will definitely stay here again next time we... More

My family have just returned from 4 nights at this lovely complex. We did not shop around as we stayed here last April & returned because the atrium is second to none. It was just as comfortable, squeaky clean & welcoming as we remembered. Steve & his staff are wonderful, very friendly & nothing is ever a problem. The unit... More

We are Americans travelling down to Waitomo Caves, we wanted a comfortable overnight stay for family of 4. We had a 2-bedroom apartment. The hotel is on a strip of many motor lodges--not much to look at from the outside and at first gave the impression of being shabby. But on closer inspection of the room everything was brand new...

Friendly owner/staff on the front desk. Room was clean, modern and comfortable. Off street parking space outside room. Location was fine if you have a car, a bit of a walk to town if not. Despite being next to an arterial road the room was quiet.

We searched the net for our one night stopover in Hamilton and saw a set of very detailed and appealing photos and said that's fine. The photos told the truth; the motel is light in decor, clean and airy and the rooms are very spacious. On arrival we were also impressed with the building style. A cathedral-like atrium made for...

A modern and clean and tidy room. Everything for a short stay including a well equipped gym and a cost effective laundry service. Good size comfortable bed. . We were there in winter and we found the room nice and warm . If you like clean and fresh and great value and device Atrium is highly recommended.

This property was a great choice for our stay in Hamilton, instead of the usual sofa bed for our + one there was a single bed in the lounge area, very comfortable! Our unit had a huge bathroom and a nicely appointed kitchen area and good wifi connection. There are a lot of hotels in Ulster street but didn't seem... More
