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

We stayed there for one night. We had 3 bedrooms with two hotels. The whole motel was clean with the receptionist giving us recommendations on places to go. With spacious toilets, kitchen and living room and TVs with good selection of channels, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves there. Wished that we had stayed longer though.

Won tickets to Chiefs game and as a treat we thought we would splash out on a motel, more than what we wanted to pay but it was well worth it, Spa bath, relax, sky tv, hop skip and jump to the stadium, couldn't ask for much more than that. Made our 1 night stay feel like a treat. Hope... More

A recent football game took us to the Stadium Motel and from the 1st phone call to reception to book, I knew this would be good. Brian and Dorothy made us more than welcome, provided great information about the surroundings and really provided a good standard of accommodation in a great city - I loved hamilton, the people are so...
