We travel to Hamilton regularly and this is the only motel we have stayed in more than once. The owner is friendly and helpful and a pleasure to deal with. The rooms are very comfortable and clean. I love the real hairdryer and the full strength dishwashing liquid!

I always feel so safe and like I am at home. Nothing is ever an issue and always so comfortable and clean. The rooms have exactly what you want/need on a trip away from home and are very modern. I would have no hesitation recommending this property to anyone. My favourite across the country.

Stayed at Ballinor just the one night before heading off to the first stage of the NZ Rally. The room was perfect for our needs. Well equipped kitchenette. Amazing double jacuzzi bath. Extremely efficient, helpful and friendly owner. The walk into town is approx. 20 mins, but there is a free shuttle bus which goes to the Casino, although we didn't use it. Free Wifi and the milk were nice touches. Had a great nights sleep here. The inn is a few minutes walk from the Waikato Stadium. Good parking outside the rooms. Cute cat! ;)

Room Tip: We had a double jacuzzi bath, king bedded room and it was very comfortable.

After a day at the pools, Waterworld Te Rapa, we were all very tired and didn't feel like driving back up to Auckland with 3 children and our elderly Grandfather. Instead we decided to stay the night here and we are so glad we chose Ballinor Motor Inn. From the moment I called to book, we received first class service. I was able to take advantage of a very good price for a large 6 person room, it was a 2 bedroom suite with two bathrooms and two TV's. The Spa Bath was enjoyed by the children and they also loved the beds. The adults enjoyed the Sky TV and the range of warm drinks available. We were very surprised by the range of appliances available and the place was modern and very clean. David really did think of everything. We were able to cook a full Egg Breakfast in our kitchen and enjoy the last few hours of our time in Hamilton relaxing as a family. Thank you David a wonderful experience. Our youngest still refers to Ballinor as his new house in Hamilton.

We ended up staying here for two nights and I could have stayed longer!
Dave was so friendly and made us feel so welcome. I have never stayed anywhere and had this kind of welcome. He gave us some good suggestions on things to look at, nothing was a problem and the two lollipops were greatly received by our child.
The hotel room was nice and clean with enough room for our toddler to run around in when it rained. The bathroom is nice and large, we also managed to cook a nice meal in the kitchen provided.
My only suggestion is maybe a higher cupboard to store glasses as our toddler kept helping herself and maybe another towel rail in the bathroom if there was room. But these weren't really an issue.
We will gladly reccommend this hotel to any friends travelling to Hamilton.
