“Great place, great location,great service”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

I was extremely happy staying at this motel.Not only was the owners Heather & John helpful & friendly but everything was easy to get to and the service was really good.I stayed here for 6 days during the Easter period and ordered breakfast which was wonderful and always on time!!The only downfall was the shortage of parking which due to its popularity made it hard to get a park if your away for a period of time..but all in all it was a great stay and I enjoyed it.The rooms were clean and the beds were so comfortable.As for being so close to town you could here the sounds of distant clubs within the CBD but wasn't enough to keep you up at night.So a job well done I will be looking forward to booking this motel when coming back to Hamilton!!

Room Tip: A great place to stay..everything is nice & central..breakfast is always on time and the Hosta a...

Two adults for $100/night special - my daughter and I spent three nights in Hamilton at Colonial City - what a great deal. 2 hours free internet each/night, good beds, reasonable shower pressure, tidy and clean facilities, flat screen TV with some Sky. Five minutes into the city, good parking at the motel, friendly hosts. Rated Very Good rather than Excellent only because of dated interior. However, would stay again without question.

The owners were very helpful and accommodating, they even lent us an umbrella to walk into town. Lots of local art in the town and nice restaurants.

This motel is very close to the CBD, which suited us perfectly and the main reason we chose to stay here. Service was also very polite. First impressions of this motel is that it would be cheap and affordable (which it was) although I was not expecting the "budget room" to mean that the cleaners actually skip cleaning the room properly. The floor was covered in grit and had not been vacuumed-nor had the rubbish and used soaps been removed from the shower.

A little way off the beaten track & road noise a bit much as it's near the hospital. Owners friendly & helpful.

My 60+ year old parents and aunt & uncle stayed at this hotel for a long weekend and found it perfectly met their needs. They were impressed by the cleanliness and simplicity, with money and care clearly spent on ensuring the basics are perfect with no unecessary costs for frills. Good beds, linen, towels, kitchen facilities. Slightly dated decor but all tidy and in perfect working order and clean. It's a central hotel and yet they had a view of the hills from over the treetops, which was uplifting and made it all seem more spacious. They enjoyed the quirky features like the rounded tops of the doors, and also found the proprietors friendly and eager to please. Excellent value for money, and they recommend it to all travellers.
