We stayed here in December the week before christmas 2014 for only 2 days. I will start with the positives. The hotel receptionist was courteous and gracious enough to give us a late check in, as we had flown in from Brisbane to Auckland airport & encountered a few delays along the way. We booked a King room, which was... More

This is my third stay here. It's by far my favourite. If possible try an upstairs park side room with balcony. It's so restful lying in bed staring out at the trees. You feel like you're in the country, yet your in the city, and close to everything you may need. I found the bed so comfy I could stay... More

This is not a bad place to say - the rooms very clean and tidy, nice big TV and Sky and one of the very few motels in the area with California King Size Bed (actually, I couldn't find any others in that area which had it). It's next to the main road but I could barely hear any traffic.... More

What a fantastic place to stay. Super friendly and helpful people, immaculate rooms, comfortable bed, big TV, great ammenities, security cameras in parking area, what more could you want? How about the thoughtfulness of having the room toasty warm and the lights on in the room when I arrived on a cold rainy night. Your are crazy if you go... More

We have stayed twice at Fountain City. We have found the service to be excellent, the cleanliness of rooms to be excellent and it is nice to be close to town. The rooms could do with more natural light and modernised but were very nice for both our stays. There is a little noise from upstairs if you are in... More

I've stayed at half a dozen places in Hamilton and this is my overall favourite so far. I was upstairs at the far end with a balcony that overlooks the neighbouring park. It's super quiet (internal and external noise). It's central, but you feel like you're in the country. Private with excellent security and ample parking. It was like a... More

We are a family of 4 and this is the second time we have stayed here. Amy the duty manager is very nice and goes out of her way to be helpful with good suggestions where to eat and made sure the sofa bed was ready for the kids as we were arriving late. The rooms have been clean and... More

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.
