We were absolutely disgusted with this motel, we had never stayed in this place before but it was the only accommodation available and we had tickets to the All Blacks. They would only let us book for 2 nights so with no other option we did this. The email confirmation stated that the room we were booking was a 2... More

Thank you for this interesting post. We were definitely not aware you were unhappy with the room rate as you seemed happy and accepted the rate when you paid for the room. I would have thought that if you were not happy with the room rate and the room layout you would have said so at the time and chosen... More

No corner spa in the bathroom.. a full sized outdoor jacuzzi in you own private courtyard. As usual with the Asure chain comfortable beds nice rooms and excellent service. There was a mixup with our room and it was handled very quickly and well Only a short taxi ride from the busy downtown area and quiet rooms. See you again.

We struggled to find a nice place to stay in Hamilton, but the Barklay was just right. Not a great location, but all the fairly mediocre motels seem to be on Ulster Street. The corner suite with kitchenette was spotlessly clean and had all the sensible facilites that our previous 5 star suite in Auckland did not have, like tissues,... More

Regular visitor to Hamilton, usually stay at another motel, which were full and less than helpful so was looking for a new place to stay. The room was fine no issues, but I did explain to the host about being a new corporate customer...so he puts me in the room closest to the road and it was bloody noisy! Guessing... More

Thanks for your review Steve. As we were all aware, this was a very busy week with little else available at the time you booked. It is unfortunate you did not mention this to us on check out. As you can see from our other reviews we do try hard to go the “extra mile” for our guests. Again, thanks... More

We stayed here for one night, while visiting family. We had a king suite with spa bath, the unit was clean, large and had great views (was upstairs). Although in need of a couple of minor things, like the corner bench coming away and the wall-paper lifting, there was nothing wrong to write home about. I would stay here again.... More

We chose the barclay from a whole row of motels because it looked inviting. It was a good choice. The hosts were helpful and pleasant. We had a large studio - very clean and neat with a good bed and shower-what more could you wish for. There was a lovely garden and a pool. We will stay here again

We ended up looking for a place to stay late at night 1030pm and this was one of the few places still open. It was a real gem with a great layout, clean. comfortable, and a bathroom that I would die for in my own house. It was the best place that we stayed in during our travels in New... More

I often travel to the Waikato for business, and always stay at the Barclay when in Hamilton. The welcome is always warm and sincere. The rooms are always spotlessly clean, comfortable, and the towels fluffy. There is air-conditioning, wifi if you need it, and comfortable chairs. Everything works well and I have never had any maintenance related issues. The price... More

We stayed at Barclay two times, our very first days in New Zealand. First my husband, Alex, was there in August for a week. He came from Thailand and after several months in a warm country had to go to all the struggle of the transition into cold, including getting used to his new closed shoes after all-time slippers))) Neil,...
