“Terrible street noise!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013

This would have been a pleasant stay if the noise from the street was not so obtrusive. The unit was clean and comfortable. Situated in the front on a busy street. It was noisy from lunch time -when I arrived until 4.00am!! I got little sleep. Would not stay here again.

Good value for money.The managers were extremely approachable and went out of their way to make me feel welcome.My room had all the basic amenities I required.Close to a busy road but from my room I was not aware of any traffic noise.Close to a few take-away shops.

Motel was fine, good value for money.

Was extremely impressed when the owner shipped my phone charger (left it there by mistake) free of charge, despite me offering to pay!

Good to see some people still like to go the extra mile :)

Nice place, the manager was very helpful. We got a two room chalet with kitchen . the place was pretty clean but needed a revamp from the 80s. road noise was a big problem and we needed ear plugs . the pool along with the furniture needed a good clean-up. pretty austere but good value and if you needed somewhere to just crash this is perfect

Stayed here in the family unit for one night for a World Cup Rugby game. Well kited out, clean simple unit with 2 bedrooms, large full kitchen. Used the spa- lovely and warm. Handy to local shops. Very impressed at the price as it was World cup game night in Hamilton. Easy walk to the stadium. Very helpful managers. Had a back unit so didn't notice the road noise.

This is a very clean motel and reasonably priced. The only problem is the traffic noise - although we are from the country and not used to any traffic noise at all so it may not be a problem for townies!

Clean, simple rooms, great value for the price. I liked that the room had a DVD player, which was great since it rained a lot during our short stay in Hamilton. There's also a simple kitchen with a hot plate, sink, dishes and other simple kitchen fare.
