We only stayed for 1 night at this hotel in mid-March. It is located on a main road through town - on the way out heading towards Auckland - but we never heard any traffic noise. We had ground floor room 7 with a massive comfortable king size bed. The room was a little dated though clean. When we first... More

I had room 5, was handy to the carpark, pool, laundry & the furtherest of the ground floor rooms from the main road. It's an ideal location for a business stop over as it's handy to all parts of Hamilton. The room was very clean & the bed comfortable. I didn't take a look at the pool, but the thought... More

good motel for families with heaps of stuff to keep kids entertained. Only downside was the dust which you could see exploding off the sofa every time you sit on it. Not recommended for anyone with dust allergies.

Large wall mount TV's were great as you can watch them from Bed. Plus table and chairs so your not just stuck with sitting on the bed. House-keeping staff extremely friendly and helpful.... More

We stayed as a family of four on Xmas Eve, and booked adjoining rooms, which was great. Only $180 for the lot, which we thought was great value. The place is a little dated, but still very comfortable, roomy and clean, no issues there at all. Excellent central location, and nice to have a view from our rooms to the... More

The staff was extremely accommodating, going out of their way to let us get our laundry done outside of the posted hours. Clean rooms, comfortable beds, ours had large windows overlooking a park, very serene, quiet. Room and parking felt very secure.

Our unit was spacious and very clean with twin beds, a sofa and a dining table with three comfortable chairs. The living area could also be screened from the sleeping area if guests chose to do so. We were upstairs with a balcony and a view of the golf course which was very pleasant. We were very happy with the... More
