“Lovely rooms, lovely staff”
Reviewed October 17, 2013

I stayed here as I was in Hamilton for a job interview and I was very impressed at the cleanliness and presentation of my studio unit. Lovely big shower, big TV, spacious bed and a small balcony. The staff were lovely and friendly, I believe it is a family-run motel. They do a loyalty stamp deal: stay 10 nights get $100 cash back. Highly recommended will stay again if I get the job.

The hotel is fairly new. Our room was spotless. The bathroom was large and the shower was great. We had a very comfortable king sized bed. The location worked well for use because we had a rental car. It is a fairly long walk to center city and a 2 block walk to the closest supermarket. The owners checked us in and they were extremely helpful even though we had messed up our online reservation that was made through a separate booking service.

I stayed here two weeks ago for two nights whilst in Hamilton for business. As I normally travel alone for business I try to stay in a hotel as it seems a somewhat safer choice than going to a motel type establishment. On this trip there were no decent hotel rooms available so I decided to give the Atrium a go because of the good reviews I had seen on trip advisor. Well I can honestly say I was not disappointed. The welcome was warm & friendly as was the check out. The unit was spotlessly clean, modern & pre-warmed for my arrival. The kitchenette & bathroom had all the required necessities. The outdoor hot tub in a secure feeling rear court yard was an added bonus. A beautifully cooked breakfast with my morning paper was an excellent start to a busy working day. All in all it was a very safe and comfortable stay.
My only recommendation is to add some local food outlets that provide delivery services to the information book in the room. It’s not the same eating out alone in an unfamiliar town.
My usual sign off remark. “Will I return to this establishment” – Absolutely.
Many thanks to the staff.

This motel is immaculate and modern. We stayed there while a rugby match was on for the ITM cup and you didn't hear the stadium crowd at all. Place was clean and the breakfast was fantastic and well priced. Would recommend this motel without hesitation.

I recently stayed here for a week and found the hotel to be absolutely wonderful. The staff are very friendly, hospitable and helpful; the accommodation is clean, fresh, spacious, warm, and comfortable; the location is excellent near shops, walks and town; it is easy to get to and from; there is plenty of parking; the gym is very good; the rooms are serviced every day by very good cleaning staff; it is quiet; internet is good; it is modern and well presented; any need is catered for; the bathroom and shower is huge and warm ... the list goes on. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend Atrium on Ulster to anyone in this price bracket. Wonderful. 99.9% ... OK maybe 100%, as I really can't think of a single thing that wasn't done very well!

2 bedroom unit was very clean and comfortable. Service was friendly and welcoming. Gym was well equipped too. Unfortunately We could hear the noise of the shower and taps above us. Hot plate in kitchen would have helped us. But would Definately come back and stay again.

This is a truly modern motel that has all the facilities you would expect in a 4.5 star hotel. The service and welcome on check in was outstanding, the man took us to our room and explained the facilities and how to work the slightly difficult lock on the rear door. The bathroom was wonderful with a huge shower, heated towel rails, nice toiletries etc. Kitchenette was more than adequate for our needs, beds were comfortable and the rear private courtyard was a real bonus. The motel is about a 20 minute walk into town and as we'd had a big day we opted to order in, based on recommendation we ordered from "Scoff" and I cannot recommend this enough, it was brilliant. We ordered room service breakfast and it was delivered promptly and was good value. A little bit of road noise here as we had a unit towards the front of the property, however it was really not enough to disturb our sleep.
