We booked the Stadium Motel for only one night as a place to stay after watching the Chiefs vs. Force rugby match at Waitomo Stadium. The biggest positive of this motel is its location to the stadium (practically next door). The room cost might be a little high for what it is, although the room was reasonably comfortable, appeared clean,... More

Good clean units and complex with very friendly staff to make for an overall great stay. Good size rooms but limited forced venting / no air condition (I do prefer able to open a window) Would benefit with some more green / natural plants / trees etc to soften complex

Well located for Hamilton and surrounding area, the management are helpful. We shared a three bedroom apartment which was unusual for having two bathrooms and a well equipped sitting/dining/kitchen area with a balcony overlooking the school across the quite busy road. When we arrived the unit was clean apart from the cooker and a few dishwasher residues on plates, but... More

Modern characterless motel like any other - clean, bland, efficient. No garden, outside area or view of any sort - if you look out your window you can see tarmac and your car. So there's Sky and a selection of DVDs in reception to look at instead. Down a surprisingly busy side street, convenient (by car) to just about everything.... More

My husband and I stayed here for his work. He slept during the day and I spent the nights. It was quiet and comfortable. We had a room with a lounge down stairs and the bedrooms upstairs. It was comfortable and clean. Sky guest select was available so I could watch my favourite shows. The location was great. You could... More

We stayed here for 2 nights on our honeymoon while exploring this area and waitomo caves. The man at reception seems to have dry humour so comes across as cold at first, but was a nice bloke (even though he made fun of how our Aussie accents pronounced certain NZ towns haha). He upgraded us to a spa room seeing... More

Stayed for 2 nights in a 2 bedroom apartment for a Surf Lifesaving Pool competition, very nice warm accommodation, very accommodating with our booking, easy to deal with, nothing appeared to be a problem for them and in turn us. My sons enjoyed the stay including a long spa bath one evening Would definitely stay again

On arrival we found the proprietor quite unfriendly; there was no friendly banter of welcome. After we checked-in he handed over the key without any pleasantries and without telling us where our unit was located (I had to ask). It was a cold evening when we arrived, the proprietor knew we were a half hour away so it would have... More

The room was ALOT smaller than it looked in the photos, rather like a McDs Bigmac.The room smelt musty and there was not enough hot water to run a Spa Bath. The bath was cold and there was no hot water again that night to do the dishes or try and have another Spa Bath. For the price paid that... More

Thank you for your review, but we find it a little confusing as you did not stay with us. Your family stayed and we understand from them that they thoroughly enjoyed their stay and would come again. More
