Had a very bad experience at this motel, when we arrived, queried the spa that was advertised, was told that it was not operating, when queried if we could get the room any cheaper due to this issue were told he would discount $4, having little choice for other accommodation, went with this option. When checked into room, found a... More

Highly... More

We enjoyed our stay at the motel, our room was large and had every thing we needed for a family of 3 adults and 3 children 1 of whom they let stay for free, it was the cheapest motel by far in the whole of the city and in a good location. We will stay there again for the price... More

This was our second visit. This time under new management. Nothing had been fixed, replaced, repaired or even painted since our previous visit of twelve months ago. The ceilings were still damp and mouldy, and the three rooms we had were damp. Broken latches on doors, extremely poor heating etc. The beds we two singles pushed together....etc etc etc We... More

Hamilton was booked out for Field Days and this place was all we could book. It costs $450 for the one room for the night. Beds were supposed to be x2 doubles and x2 singles as it was for our workers. When they got there the room had only three beds, and one pull down! Not good enough for four... More

First impression from the outside I knew instantly I was not going to enjoy my stay, inside the décor and carpets only reinforce my view! What drew me to this accommodation was the "extra large spa pool" and it did not disappoint. We were a family of 6 including 4 children and booked the family room which had 2 separate... More

Friendly enough owners but wouldnt stay here again. Shower was mouldy, didnt have proper toilet paper, main bed was rock hard and from the 1970's, jug was broken & rusting inside of it. Very uncomfortable sleep not at all what we expected

Free wifi, full kitchen, separate bedroom, clean, convenient, seniors rate and $85 a night. What more could we want! Not flash, but friendly service and we were told we could pay when we left - how many motel owners would trust their guests so much? Highly recommended.
