A spacious very clean room, a comfortable bed, free wifi & an awesome spa bath all made my 3 night stay excellent but it's the little personal touches from David & his lovely staff that makes the Ballinor such an awesome place to stay!
I left Hamilton early in the day to travel to my son's wedding in Auckland upon my return very late that night I opened my room to discover my curtains had all been drawn & the bedside lamp left on :)

stayed only one night at the Ballinor just on a quick little trip to Hamilton, the spa king unit was lovely, very very warm as we did have the heat pump going for a little while, and boy did it heat up the room,,, we had to turn it off in the end,,, phew,, but the unit itself was very comfortable and had everything that you could want for your stay, including flat screen tv with sky :), also this motel is handy to the main street with its shopping and restaurants , the manager is very friendly and helpful with any queries (thank you Dave), we also enjoyed the little courtyard, as we are both smokers , also coming from the country, we do like our privacy, will definitely be recommending this motor inn to everyone who heads for Hamilton.

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.
