Whenever we are in Hamilton to visit relatives, my wife and kids always insisting on staying at HYGATE and they are never wrong. The place is clean, tidy and close to the city proper. HIghly recommended

We stayed for 2 nights last weekend and found the rooms to be very nicely appointed, well looked after. The towels were lovely and clean, beds comfortable and linen in very good clean condition too. There were plenty of good quality utensils, and everything worked. There was nothing to fault. Road noise wasn't an issue to us and it is... More

Stayed one night and was pleasantly upgraded to a Queen Unit with Spa - this was bliss and just what I needed after a big weekend and day before a three day work conference. I'm not sure if I can name staff - but Fran was delightful, happy and so helpful. I had a lovely sleep and the unit was... More

Stayed just one night after visiting the Hobbiton. Everything was very pleasant. Room was very nice; and at a very reasonable price (paid NZD 140). Really enjoyed a river walk and adjoined memorial park.

This establishment is well run (both the pervious and new management), spotlessly clean, quiet, affordable and comfortable. This is my 8th stay here this year; could have done a lot worse. Well deserving of a 5 rating.
