Did not actually get to stay here. I rang the motel as we were visting someone in the hospital, I realise it is V8 week, but my freind didn't have the privileage of getting sick at another time, but the girl was so rude who answered the phone, she basically laughed in my ear that of course we don't have...

My husband & I recently stay at this motel and loved every minute of it, the hospitality was excellent and the room was everything you would want. We went to Hamilton for the rugby so location to the ground was perfect right accross the road was the stadium.

Again, like some others I am unsure why this is No1 in Hamilton. Location wise on a positive it would be excellent if you were in town to watch a rugby match, and overall, could not really fault the decor. On the negative side our flight was late into Hamilton on a Monday night (got in about 8.45pm), with a... More

For a 5 star motor lodge I must say I was a little bit disappointed. The bed was excessively firm and the pillows uncomfortable. The building is directly opposite Waikato stadium which isn't the greatest view and something I should have paid much closer attention to when I looked at it's location. Thankfully for us there were no rugby matches... More

On the positive side the reception was fine, it was quiet and rooms clean. The accommodation we found functional but depressing with a pokey poorly lit kitchen area and decor that may have looked good in the 70's. We had a depressing outlook over the parking lot. The Motel was not near anything of interest and was opposite a rugby... More

stayed in a 2 bedroom unit for one night. Fairly small proportions, but nice and modern and clean. Indoor heated pool was great - didn't use the spa pool at the time as it was colder than the pool. Kitchen area small, stovetop, microwave and fridge, but no oven. Bathroom had a spa bath, but we didn't get to use... More

This was our first night in NZ and were pleasantly surprised with the value for our dollar (compared to Australia) Arrived in pooring rain, but was warmly welcomed by the owners. We appreciated the small touches, especially the QUALITY tea, coffee, etc (not the run of mill labels) Beautiful beds, great TV etc. Considering the budget cost for our room... More

1. Beds were hard, uncomfortable, which complemented the awful pillows. 2. Neighbouring guests were obviously going to be trouble, and that proved the case They were drinking when we arrived in the afternoon and the noise only stopped when they went out on the town around 11PM. They made sure everyone except for our blissfully sleeping hosts, obviously, were alerted... More
