We have been staying at this motel off and on since 2007. The decor, furniture and kitchenware have constantly been kept up to date, rooms are always beautifully clean and excellent facilities are always provided. The rooms are very well laid out, very practical for travellers with lots of bags and gear and are presented superbly. The staff are very... More

Everything was organised via the Internet and on arrival from Auckland (via an overseas cruise) we were met by a warm family of husband and wife, precious cat and rather intrigued golden retriever. A wonderfully homey feeling and such a warm welcome. The room we had was immaculately clean, bright and airy and very comfortable. The bed itself was just... More

What else can I say but wow. We were impressed from the second we stepped into our room. The service was warm and friendly and our room was the best we have ever stayed in. Everything was clean and comfortable. Thank you for having us, we were super impressed.

We passed through Hamilton on our way south from Auckland Airport. The Hygate Motel was perfect for our one night stay. It's a functional motel on a strip of many motels, but the service was pleasant, the 1 bedroom family room was immaculate and newly decorated, room was quiet and in a decent location.

Conveniently located on the edge of Hamilton centre a short drive from a wide range of restaurants. Studio of reasonable size, comfortable bed, shame about the pillows. Lodge offers standard Best Western facilities with two of everything in the bathroom and kitchenette. Also offers continental breakfast with a reasonable selection and an option for a cooked meal all at reasonable... More

Our first stop on our trip around North Island New Zealand and not sure what to expect as it was so reasonably priced. Well we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the lovely spa bath was a bonus. If we are lucky enough to come back we will definitely stay at the Hygate again.

This is a very practical motel, not a resort type place. My room and the bathroom were both spacious and very comfortable. There are no views but my room was quiet and had its own carper. Breakfast was available on request but there is a supermarket down the road, the cooking facilities are excellent and there are plenty or restaurants... More

Don't let first impressions fool you. This motel provides good value and a location near shopping and restaurants. Not a lot of parking but still adequete. Like most New Zealand motels, it includes a small kitchen area and teas, coffee and milk.

We stayed in a 1 bedroom family unit. It was in very good condition, newly decorated, very spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was very handy, and all very clean. Staff were also friendly. This motel is very good value.

What a welcome relief to stay at an immaculate and modern place. Karen was so kind and friendly - a true credit to the motel. Little extras like a variety of tea, spring water bottle, plunger coffee and 50 legitimate sky channels were appreciated. This place is great .
