This motel is great value for money. In a good location - walking distance to central Hamilton.My room was clean and comfortable. I was travelling with a pet and the staff were accomodating regarding this. The lady on reception was genuinely helpful.

The place is very handy to town which is useful as parking in the city is often hard to find. We had a one bedroom suite. The room was dirty. The kitchen area was okay and had your standard tea and coffee. But you dont even get a bar of soap in the bathroom just the liquid dispenser. I wouldnt...

For the price, the Tudor Motor Lodge was not that bad. The only thing keeping me from giving this place a 4 star review is the dated feel to the entire place. The rooms are in need of a serious upgrade. Location wasn't too bad, since the walk to the main couple of streets was under 10 minutes, but it...

We spent 3 nights in this lodge. It was not modern but the rooms were tidy and neat. There is a full kitchen. It is close to the Waikato Hospital,and an easy walk to the shopping centre. The staff were friendly and helpful.

The motel is old but the owners are trying. New bedding, new heat pump, new tv. Unfortunately a bit of paint wouldn't go amiss and the plates were greasy & wet. My biggest issue was the dogs of other guests not only yapping but allowed to wander the grounds without a leash. I don't want to stay in a room...

You'll get what you're paying for. It was the only place I could get, I booked it just 30 minutes before getting there and they had the room ready with a carton of milk in the fridge. If you're used to go fancy places you won't like this one... to have a better time just try to remember the price...

The motel was just as expected, plenty of parking and spacious, clean rooms. What made this stay great were the staff; we had a really delightful lady check us in... Made us feel very welcome and gave us fresh milk for cups of tea! So thank you. I'd recommend.
