This was clean and tidy. Service was excellent and was an Ok price. But this was where it ended. Place hasn't had money spent on it in many many years and the beds were horrible. I guess price reflected this but I would probably try some else first.

My wife and I stayed here March 16-18. We were visiting from the U.S. We arrived one hour before check-in and they graciously let us check in an hour early. Very clean. Comfortable space with kitchen area as well. Mattress was comfortable. Couch was not as comfortable. Good water pressure in shower. Our room was #5--very close to the self-serve... More

Beds very comfortable, room clean and good size for 3 adults, lovely welcome on arrival. On a main road but not facing the road so traffic didn't bother us at all. Only downside was room upstairs so suggest ask for ground floor if needed. Staff very helpful so don't see it would be a problem.

Booked a room via telephone with the Motor Inn's reception. Arrived to check in and there was no booking recorded. Had been told it was a very short walk to the city centre but it was further than expected. Decided not to stay there and found accommodation closer.

Very small clean room, tiny bathroom that hasn't a fan. It's very noisy if you are near the road even on an early Sunday morning. The pool is small but nice. No extra towels were offered. Had to leave towels out on the coat rack to dry for the morning swim and shower but it rained.

Very friendly welcome. Room is clean & tidy but very tired, has seen better days. Very small room but love the Sky channels available. Reasonable for the price we paid. However, would still go back to our usual Camelot on Ulster if it is not fully booked.

Our netball team stayed here. There was six of us so they gave us two units which were interconnecting. The rooms were a bit dated but comfortable, however the dining chairs were a bit suss. Two of the older looking ones didn't look very safe to sit on. The ice box in the smaller unit was completely frozen and the... More

Good room for a good price, Purchased via Wotif. We stayed one night, the room was well presented, comfortable and warm. The decor was a little outdated but it was in great condition with no deterioration. Would happily stay here again

This accommodation offers great value . Easy check in , friendly staff, good size well fitted out rooms that are clean but do require a little maintenance . Has free Wifi internet. The location is close to most places. Good off street parking. Great room for the price , would recommend and would stay again when passing through Hamilton.

The host wasd lovely and friendly. Studio unit clean and fresh. Everything we needed was provided. Spa pool was lovely and warm. The host offered advice on a nice riverside walk into the city. We stayed here on 2 separate occasions and would use this motel again.
