I wondered whether I should give this a 1 or a 2. It isn't that all bad it was just very cold. Even with the heat pump set at 29 deg C it could not heat the room. I'd estimate it was only 16 deg inside. Even worse is that the heater cycled on and off every 5 minutes AND... More

We stayed one windy wet wet night - being able to jump into the perfectly heated and spotlessly clean spa and pool was a joy! The unit was clean and pretty functional. We had a 1 bed roomed unit but would have preferred if the main bed was in the bedroom - not the 2 single beds. The reception staff... More

Very clean, quiet. Staff helpful - extending our stay last minute & late check out. Free Internet, parking & washer/dryer. Lovely modern room. Ensuite large. Decent amount of milk, enough for cereal & tea in the kitchenette each morning. Microwave, hot plate & bar fridge. Only 5min drive from Main Street.

Lovely tidy units with very friendly staff. Right next door to one of the local stadiums so great if you are going to the game. Straight off the by-pass route into town from Auckland. On the main route so access to the city centre is easy.

We recently spent time in New Zealand and stayed in five different hotels over that trip. This one was a our favorite by far. It was charming, clean, and comfortable. I felt the most at home when we stayed there.

We have stayed in many places in Hamilton and this has been the best. My husband and I stayed for 1 night to watch the Chiefs play the Crusaders. The room was very clean, there are cooking facilities and everything you need. The extra's in the bathroom were very much appreciated. Great view of the Rugby ground and close to... More

As long as nothing is happening at the Stadium, this is an nice alternative motel for a quiet night's sleep. Well managed, clean, comfortable, with basic but good facilities and free wi fi. Small kitchen sink and microwave and toaster and some extra cutlery make it more useful than your usual motel facilities. If you wanted to be close to... More

I really liked this room. It was very well appointed, modern and spacious. The kitchenette had everything we needed, even champagne flutes! It was located close to shops etc and right opposite a stadium so not sure how things would be on game days! Didn't find Reception very freindly but otherwise would highly recommend.

I stayed at the Park View Motor Lodge recently for two nights on business. Having tried several other motels and hotels in Hamilton prior to coming across this one, I can say with confidence this is the best. Location is pretty good, right next to Waikato stadium, near the top of Mill Street and about a 5 min drive or... More

We stayed two days in order to go kayaking at Waitomo. It is a lovely, well-appointed hotel, easy to find and clean, quiet and friendly. Loved the convenience of a fridge, hot plates, hair dryer - even makeup remover pads, plus the luxury of a small pool, spa and a spa bath in our unit. Reception was very helpful when... More
