The decor is old and dated. The amenities are ok. The beds are not plush and the pillows are the $2 shop variety. The restaurant sold nice food at a good price and overall not bad for the price but I will try somewhere else next time.

This is a great hotel for eating, conferencing, staying over. It's very easy to find, not far from everywhere and comfortable. I used Wotif and the friendly staff accommodated a matching price for me. My room had a large bath in it and two beds. Great size with everything available. Would use again.....wotif price of $85 makes this room an... More

We stayed here for one night because it was cheap and close to an event we were attending. It was relatively close to town and well-priced. We had a spa which was lovely, not private but still nice for a Winter dip. The swimming pool would be good in the Summer. It also had a gym area for those active... More

We would come back to this establishment for the future. Handicap room in the 100 section. A suggestion is to either sand down the wood on the handicap stool so mold does not show. Or put a coat of waterproof paint on the wood.

Thank you for the comment. An excellent idea and one that will be given to maintenance immediately. All the wooden fixtures and furniture in the rooms has been re-varnished in the last 6 months and this obviously missed. Thank you again for bringing it to our attention. Kind regards Murray Cook More

Stayed at this Hotel for business attending a conference and everything was exceptionally adequate. For a start, the Hotel is away from the City Centre, so if you're there for any sort of tourism or experience, I'd suggest looking somewhere substantially closer to the city, especially as, if you're fond of using public transport, the buses don't run much later...

Thank you for taking the time to make comments regarding your stay with us at the Hotel. We are located 4 kms from the city centre, however there is a shuttle that runs to the Casino and this should have been pointed out if you booked a taxi through reception. From your description of the bathroom you would have been... More

This is an older hotel but room was large and the bathroom spotless. Bed big and reasonably comfortable. The outside could do with a bit of a face lift as the air cons are all looking rusty. Needed a power plug by the bed but all the points were hard wired so had to run an extension cord across the... More

Booked this hotel based on price and location - stopover en route to South. Location was good - easy to find coming off SH1. Room - very dated and basic. Beds - very uncomfortable and hard. Was large with Double and Single bed. Rooms are in different blocks - after check in (very unfriendly staff) there was nowhere to park... More

Thank you for your comments. As we have over 300 free car parks I find it surprising that you have stated limited car parking. We are more than happy to help with luggage if requested and if possible we will move rooms to satisfy a guests needs. Your comments regarding the check in staff are disappointing and the matter will... More

Enjoyed our stay, good value for money hotel in Hamilton. Friendly staff. Room an older style but perfectly clean and fine for what we paid. Good sized room for a family of 4. Just off a main road so easy access to town centre but no loud traffic. Spa pools were great, indoor pool way too cold for us though!

Thank you for your kind comments. Feedback, such as yours, is always appreciated by the staff and management. From your comments it seems like you got one of our triple rooms which are very popular with families, having the queen, double and single bed and still plenty of room certainly makes them sought after. Its pleasing you got to use... More

Rooms are clean and big. We had a room with 2 queen size beds and 1 single bed. Perfect for our family of five. The motel has good parking facilities, near to most rooms. The whole motel is of a good size, with a large reception area. WIFI is free for only 20 mins and thereafter, need to pay.

Thank you for taking the time to make comment and I am happy that you were able to take advantage of one of our "triple rooms". These are indeed large and very suitable for family's travelling. As such they are very popular over the weekend when they generally sell out very quickly. We have just recently completed installation of wifi... More
