Didnt like the attitude or the way their son (or whoever the guy was) was dealing with me and my partner. Unprofessional and next time: - dont tell us how much money you spent on the place ($30,000) - dont try call me or my partner "mate" / "bro" - advise customers clearly in simple form to use a credit...

Stayed in a 1 bedroom unit with two teenagers, for 3 nights. Unit is compact but has all the essentials that are needed for a stay, including a small oven. Thankful for the daily room service who kept the rooms immaculate every day. It was good to get back every afternoon and the unit was cleaned properly (beds, dishes, bathroom)... More

I was welcomed by the friendliest happiest lady, in a very nice plain reception, even offering chocolate :) . Best customer service I have had in a while! Thank you. Room was lovely and had all we needed. Great aircon which was needed as the weather was hot and muggy. Close to town, but pretty sound proof. Thank you for... More

This could be along story... My wife booked me into this hotel as I was in Hamilton for a work meeting the following day. She used her credit card to book and pay for the room. On top of this, she wrote a note to them on their booking system mentioning that she would not be with me when i... More

Over the years we have stayed in many types of accomodation but although not the most modern this motel is extremely well looked after and our unit would be one of the tidiest and cleanest we have stayed in. It appears that when it is cleaned it is cleaned extremely well. A big congrats to the cleaning staff. The step... More

Stayed one night and enjoyed my stay here, price was very reasonable. Close to city and supermarket. The room looked like it was refurbished with little finishing touches which was nice to see. Will definitely recommend this place to friends and family

For one night, my husband and I stayed in Room # 4 which was a nice, clean and newly renovated room. The bed was excellent, we both slept soundly that night and the bathroom (toilet and shower) really looked nice and updated. Loved that it's got free (and fast!) wifi and cable tv. Staff was also very accommodating. We'd stay... More

Yes this is a budget motel, and yes it seems to have had good reviews so this is why I booked this motel, but I really didnt find this place to be anything but somewhere that is clean and that has good wifi. I definately didnt get a 'refurbished' room, and it was very old, and very dated. The shower... More
