Staying at the Ambassador Motel was a bit like traveling back to 1970 without a time machine. The only giveaway that we weren't reliving our past was the flat screen TV and the microwave oven, which had yet to be invented way back then. It was typical of the concrete block constructed blocks of flats that litter Hamilton - I lived in one working in Hamilton back at that time and it was identical to our one bedroom flat at The Ambassador. To their credit, the staff were very helpful, the room and bedding was very clean, and the beds were oh so comfortable. Unfortunately we had to walk quite a distance along an exposed concrete balcony with no roof, in a howling gale and rain to reach our room. It is probably something guests have had to endure for a few decades. Overall it was fine, but they really should invest some money in major makeovers of the dated bathrooms, and maybe the kitchens ( which are really useful if you are traveling with family).Showers over baths are old hat - if they were fully tiled with a walk in shower and some modern plumbing it would make a huge difference.
