We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom units for several nights. The unit was very clean and tidy with comfortable beds, a full kitchen and lounge with all the extras you could want for an extended stay including extra pillows, blankets, iron etc. The motel offers a free washing machine for guests use, washing lines and dryers. They also... More

Although sheets and towels were clean the carpet and ceilings needed a good clean. Complimentary coffee, drinking chocolate,tea and milk were supplied Complimentary soaps (refillable containers) were empty. Spa was nice but required 4 hours prior notice before use.

Room was perfect - kitchenette in a side room with door leading to shower and toilet. Free WiFi... More

We all had a good nights sleep and were able to get late checkout which was great, made our time really relaxed. we will be staying here in... More

Well it certainly was a different stay than we have had in Hamilton and by no means the best. The first unit (3) we were put into, had no working heatpump and there were cobwebs in just about every corner in the unit. We were subsequently moved to unit 2 which thankfully had some heating but was just as dirty... More

$88.00, enjoyed my stay business trip over night. Competitive price in comparison to other motels. It had all the creatures of comfort. I enjoyed it and saved myself a heap of unnecessary dollars. I was last here in 1975 during a secondary school north island basketball tour. Not stunningly flash and modern. It was simple for my needs. I smiled... More

We stayed in unit 4 for one night. The rooms are comfy and it's a clean well kept unit. There was a heater in one room and all beds had heated blankets which was excellent (we did not need the heaters in the night). There is free WiFi. owners promptly fixed one of the non functional locks. Kitchen is adequate.... More

Paid for the deluxe room, which was far from deluxe. Furniture was shabby and old, as were interior decorations. Shower hadn't been cleaned properly and still had a clump of hair in it. We accidentally left a laptop there but manager wouldn't courier it to us at our expense. We had to have someone go and pick it up. Wouldn't... More
