Great place to stay. Very comfortable and friendly staff. Great location. Shame there was no airconditioner. But all the beds had an electric blanket and an oil heater was available. Was very handy being close to the main shops as well.

We stayed at this motel with perfect distance to the Rugby ground. Owners were just lovely but as we had booked some months earlier we did think we would all be together instead of one unit on one street and one on the other😒 The apartment was modern but the upstairs we thought could be very dangerous with no night...

Called at motel to make a booking with certain requirements as wife was coming out of hospital after major surgery. Able to move in straight away as room was ready at 9.15am. Owners could not have been more obliging, nice rooms and setup. Would thoroughly recommend to anyone. We will be back during follow up visits.

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
