I'd already read the reviews before we booked here, so I had a fair idea of what to expect. I rang about the valet car-parking in advance, and enquired about upgrading to a riverside room. They couldn't make a promise on either (first in first served) which was fine, but on arrival I was super pleased to get both! The... More

I stayed for 3 nights at the hotel for a conference. The rooms were fairly small but totally adequate for the business traveler. The rooms were clean and well equipped. The breakfast was good and the staff helpful. Parking at the hotel was inadequate but the staff kindly pointed out that car parking at the nearby casino was both ample... More

The hotel itself is very nice. The service on the other hand was less than satisfactory. Bar and restaurant staff were few and far between. Often waiting at the bar while they cleared tables or were just not around. Overall I would consider another hotel when visiting Hamilton again

Nothing relaxing about this hotel. Unattractive bathrooms, showers only with no baths in any of the rooms (I asked). TV was very small with limited channels available, most of them sports. Parking was only available through Sky-City across the road and of course, not cheap. I ventured into the hotel restaurant which was an open-plan diner joining the reception so... More

My husband and I have stayed here before years ago, and stayed again recently while attending a wedding in the Hamilton area. I was pleasantly surprised as to the upkeep of the hotel and how it was still as clean and fresh as it was when new. It is not flash or plush, it is simple, basic and adequate for... More

This was a stay for work, so I didn’t chose to stay here, but it was ok. The lack of free Wi-Fi in the hotel room was a downer, and I agree with earlier comments that the rooms are too hot and the air con had no effect. I’m a really light sleeper, so with the air conditioning running all... More

The rooms are smallish, and bland, with a half desk/shelf and one chair. The beds are very tall and super comfortable. The parking options are pretty appalling, and the area isn't the best at night...even during the day Hamilton City's homeless/beggars hand around very close by. Find for a business trip, but nothing stood out which makes me want to... More
