“Very good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

This was our second time staying here. Last time we were in a studio up stairs which we thought was great but this time we were in a one bedroom unit which had just had new carpet laid, has 2 flatscreen TV's huge kingsize bed and super bathroom. The whole unit was so clean and a full credit to the cleaning staff. We stayed for 2 nights and had the unit cleaned and supplies replaced for the next day. We rang ahead to request an earlier check in which was no trouble. Our room was ready when we arrived even though they had been busy with carpet layers there doing more of the rooms. Excellent value for the money we paid. Looking forward to our next stay.

We stayed here as we were in Hamilton for a wedding. There were 6 of us so we booked a 2 bedroom unit. This was spotless, modern, warm and had lovely decor, even the sheets were a bit 'flasher' than usually seen in a motel. The bathroom was huge and also spotless. All together we had 4 units booked for friends and family and all units were just as well presented.
As many other reviewers have said, the hosts, Steve and Ali are so friendly and welcoming, remembering our name etc which made everything even more personal. They are just what motel hosts should be and I am sure this friendly service will be why this motel is so popular.
If we are needing a motel in Hamilton again, this will definately be where we will stay.

Room Tip: We were down the back of the complex and it was very quiet, but where you are probably depends on th...

We stayed here for 1 night during our 2 week holiday in NZ.
We booked the 1 bedroom downstairs room with also had a single bed in the lounge/kitchen area, which was great for our son.
This was a lovely clean, comfortable room with all we needed for our 1 night stay.
Is a bit of a drive into the main part of Hamilton, but not too far if you need to eat out.

We stayed in a 1 Bed Apartment which was extremely clean and well looked after. 2 x Tv's and kitchenette was a bonus. Not that handy to Hamilton Central, but it was very good value for money. The staff were very very helpful.

The Atrium exemplifies what a good motel should be like - the hosts are very professional, the rooms are modern and spotless and the bed comfortable. In the long strip of motels on Ulster St this one stands out. The location, as with all the motels on this road, is very convenient but is not in walking distance to town - however very few motels in Hamilton are. This was our second stay and I also booked a friend in for a weekend a while ago and she was very pleased with her unit too.

Room Tip: we stayed in a bottom unit mid way down the complex and found that location excellent

We stayed here for a family 21st in Hamilton and were delighted with our choice. The 1 bedroom apartment we had booked was excellently appointed and spotlessly clean. The friendly, courteous host's were helpfull and made sure we were looked after. Two other family groups also booked in there and were also delighted with their accomodation. When a 3rd family couple's plans changed on the night, after a late night phone call they were also able to be accommodated. Absolutely excellent service. We have no hesitation in recommending the Atrium as an excellent place to stay

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a cedar hot tub

Stayed here for the first time in Hamilton on business. I found the rooms modern, well fitted and absolutely spotless. Little things such as the plunger coffee and real milk! was also nice. The fitness room was also well fitted with various equipment. The free internet is also a great bonus compared with other hotel/motels which charge.

The highlight however was the service of the hosts Steve and Alison. They were friendly, helpful and always w illing to go the extra mile.

I look forward to returning to the hotel next time I am in Hamilton. I would highly recommend it to others.
