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

We stayed in Hamilton for the last night of our nz trip. This hotel was nice and clean, spacious rooms and not a bad location across from sports stadium. The spa was not working when we were there, which was a shame, however pool was nice.

A very clean spacious room with a kitchen, jacuzzi, comfortable beds & indoor pool. Next a rugby arena. Quiet neighborhood and easy access from state highway. Close to restaurants on Victoria street. A very helpful and friendly staff. We enjoyed our stay.

We stayed for 1 night and chose Park View because it’s off the main drag in a quiet street and peaceful at night unlike the multitude of Ulster street accommodation in Hamilton’s “Motel Alley”. Its also central and close enough to the bars and restaurants. The room was a good size, clean and modern and the Hosts friendly. The sauna... More

We spent one night here as we were passing through Hamilton. We had a one bedroom unit and it was everything you hope a motel is. Clean, quite, comfortable and spacious. The spa bath helped ease my aches and pains from sitting in the car. We decided to take a walk into town for dinner (about a 5-7 minute walk)... More

I stayed here for 3 nights on a business trip. I really like the fact that places like this have great little kitchenettes that you can cook meals and store food in a decent fridge etc. It had a LCD TV, heat pump and a little table where you could sit and eat your dinner. Free Wi-fi is a bonus... More

The first plus: how easy it was to find the place - nothing worse than driving around in a city you don't know looking for your destination. The second plus: the room was lovely. We stayed with our kids and we all loved the spa! The beds were super comfortable, the noise minimal and the service friendly.

We stayed one night recently. Very happy with location, reception staff were very helpful with all enquiries. Perfectly clean and comfortable. Kitchen well appointed too. Pool area very clean and inviting too with pool nicely heated. Free WiFi was much appreciated too. Will be back!

Stayed there for 3 nights. Was meant to be just a relaxing time away from home. (So we were hoping to be able to sleep in). Well, there are no "Do Not Disturb" signs - and no "Please Clean My Room" signs to hang on the outside door handle. So we were woken at 9 am every day by the... More

Dear DavidR. It is unfortunate that your stay at Park View Motor Lodge was ruined by avoidable circumstances. Firstly, there was clearly a breakdown of communication between yourselves and our housekeeping staff. Secondly, it is sad to see that you have turned an innocent discussion about the service of your unit around in such a negative way. At no time... More
