Reception ok, room itself was clean & tidy but below par for the price. Location convenient to our needs. Central to Hamilton and easy access to everything. Room cabinetry in need of an upgrade. Parking in front of our room was a tight fit for our 4 wheel drive vehicle.

Great little Motel on Lake Hamilton stayed one night for a Rowing Regatta on the lake. Well positioned, easy walk to lake, about 800m to town centre. Clean and comfortable. Free and Fast WiFi. Would definitely stay here on a return visit

Situated off the main road so it was easy to get a peaceful night's sleep. The room was comfortable, clean and the a/c worked well which was great news on such a cold night. Provide an evening meal service as well as breakfast. It was greatly appreciated when we found the need for a bottle opener and the owner was... More

This budget room was comfortable with plenty of space, pleasant owner, room in good condition and clean. Offered breakfast & evening meal in your room and, also, offered a packed lunch. Handy to the main street. Ground floor accommodation with parking at your door.

We booked to stay here as we were attending a dog show. They were happy to have the dogs stay but not in the rooms which was fine. We had the family room. This was the usual motel room plus another bedroom with 2 beds. This gave 3 adults plenty of room. There was even a dining table with 4... More

Don't expect 5 star facilities in a 3 star establishment but the service is totally 5 star here. Friendly, efficient and very cooperative staff for whom nothing is too much trouble, quality rooms that are clean, tidy and value for money-very comfortable. Will we come here again for an overnight stay whilst travelling - you bet!

This is the second time (1 year apart) that we have stayed here, little update to the room, yes exactly the same one (honeymoon suite), and as before was extremely clean and wonderful greeting and service by the owners. 3 star that is the service and quality of a 5 star in reality. Great place and will always recommend.

It's a budget hotel but it is clean, quiet and comes with a microwave, mini-bar, toaster, in-house movies, good breakfast and in-room dining. Not bad for the price. Friendly service. Close to town and their is a lovely lake to walk around in the morning.
