The occasion of a family wedding brought us to Hamilton in the Waikato, just 90 minutes down the road from Auckland for a one night stopover.. Our twin share unit had tons of room, was emaculately clean and tidy. Service was outstanding and staff could not do enough for us. The little matters that easily add up, were expertly dealt...

We were travelling from the far north of the Coromandel Peninsular to Hamilton after work and to be in time for business meetings the next day. The motel owner was very accommodating of our late check-in time which was after the office closed for the day, and made arrangements for us to find our room. A good night's sleep resulted... More

Highly recommended, we stopped off in Hamilton for a couple of days on the way from Auckland to the ferry to the South Island. The motel was a random choice but definitely a very good one.. The accommodation was very good with a separate room from the bedroom as a kitchen/dining room. The motel owner was very friendly and, when... More

After reading the mixed reviews from previous visitors, I checked it out before deciding to stay here for 5 nights. I stayed in studio unit #16, and found it clean and comfortable. The queen-size inner-spring bed was very comfortable. It had an electric blanket, and duvet. There were also extra polar-fleece blankets if needed. The unit was quite warm, and... More

Had the loveliest 2 night stay here. The owners are the most friendly accommodating people. From someone who travels regulary ,it was so nice to be treated as a guest and not a number! My dog was able to stay and had a big grass run to play on. Bed was super comfy and rooms were extremely clean. I only... More

We stayed here only because we needed a place to stay while moving north for the night that allowed cats. Not too many places left that do this these days. The room was average, with some work done on it, but we did not mind as we had the cats. The owner/manager was lovely and we meet her sphynx (hairless)... More

Lovely and friendly owners always keen to help ya and crack some jokes. The room was very modern as apposed to what every one is saying, nice beds,... More

I would agree some of the rooms are dated but the furnishings were new and stylish (bedding etc) Had no issues with cleaning either, clean rooms and no bad smells. Well stocked kitchenette although we didn't use but full size cooker, fridge, etc. Friendly welcome and good central location. Easy to walk to bars and restaurants. There is a launderette... More

We definitely would not stay here again felt it was overpriced for a very basic and dated room. Advise if travelling with a dog make sure you check the price before handing over your credit card details they charge an extra $30.00 for cleaning.
