Very smartly turned out quiet motel on a busy road. The units further away from the road are quieter still. The management team have read the book on what punters want and they aim to please, nothing is too much trouble. It was a pleasure to stay at Ballinor. Good sized rooms comfortable beds, squeaky clean. PDG

Quality of presentation & chattels is always good thanks and Room rate reasonable and in good location for travelling North or back into the city. Some units do not have bath, but showers are good. Always pleasant reception assistance for anything needed.

As for rooms, they were disappointing and we stayed in a family room as we were of us and didn't have a... More

Very warm and comfortable room. Loved the spa bath and a great selection of sky channels. The only thing that was disappointing is you can hear those in the rooms next to you very clearly which can be off putting

I looked at many hotels in Hamilton and the Ballinor caught my eye. I rung then direct and had fabulous service from Hogan and we discussed room options and I booked on the spot. When we arrived we were personally taken to our room and were impressed with the compact layout that was modern and well presented. Everything and more... More

Lovely clean room, walking distance to restaurants. Good rate. Would recommend this motor inn. On a busy street but no road noise in the room. Not much more I can say but my comment has to be 200 characters, which is ridiculous!!

A great place to stay, the service was excellent, especially as were late arriving due to traffic on the way down from Auckland. Located in close proximity to town it suited us for our overnight stay.
