Having stayed at one of these Residence and Conference centres in Hamilton we were ready for the no frills budget accommodation, but we were still disappointed. We circled the campus of the college several times looking for this but only saw the student residence hall. When it became clear this was it we parked up and checked in. The staff were very unconcerned that we had had trouble finding it and that wasn't properly signposted - saying they had had frequent complaints!!
The place was basically an average hall of residence - same format as Hamilton - a kitchenette with two bedroom and shower off it. As with Hamilton THE KITCHEN HAS NO POTS,PANS, UNTENSILS OR CROCKERY AT ALL! which means travellers cannot use the kitchen without buying the necessary equipment.
No breakfast provided unlike Hamilton residence and conference centre which was cheaper and a lot nicer. Does have games room and laundrette though we got lost down long corridors; just a student hall of residence - nothing more or less.
All in all a cheap option; only stay here is you cannot afford anything else.
One good note - it is easy to get here from the main western highway.
