“Relaxation in Hamilton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

Stayed one night, excellent position, nice lobby lounge area, right on river. Rates appeared same no matter where booked. Convenient for shops, cages, casino, cricket and even rugby! Staff very friendly, breakfast included, good value at extra $10 each on basic room rate. Great ambience, and lovely river side walk right outside.

Great place to stay - right in the heart of Hamilton. Restarants and shops at your door step. Get your car valet parked and walk everywhere.
Clean, quiet and modern rooms. Very impressed will definately stay again

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

I book into this Hotel annually we travel from Rotorua specifically to do our Christmas shopping and have a tinkle at the Casino.
I alway book on line and receive the specials. Ever year for the past 4 years I have asked for the room next to the gym where I can have access onto the court yard and every year there is an excuse as to why I cannot have this particular room which I believer is room 139. I always book from 2-4 weeks in advance.
I was given a credit of $30 when I looked at my invoice it was added and not deleted to my invoice this is misleading advertising. Otherwise staff were excellent

Dear Guest. Thank you very much for informing us about your recent booking with us. I am sorry to read that we were unable to provide you with room 139. As this is the only room with balcony access, we get quite a lot of requests for it. I am sorry that it was occupied at the time of your stay. Hope it will be available next year for your Christmas shopping. Best regards, Dick Breukink, General Manager
