After mentioning that the room was a little noisy - I'm a light sleeper and Hamilton has many boy racers - we were moved to a lovely comfortable room in the tower block. Had a great nights sleep and Anthony on reception is a great guy and very helpful.
Happily stay here again

Had a lovely time at The Ambassador. The recepetionist was lovely (can't remember his name unfortunately) and really helpful. Comfy beds and a good shower were a bonus - often don't get 1 let alone both of those at some places! I didn't get time to use the pool but it did look extremely inviting! I will definitely stay there again next time I'm in Hamilton.
Thanks heaps!

The team at Ambassador were awesome for our wheelchair tennis players during their 5 day stay at the motel. Excellent value for money. Great atmosphere and awesome staff. Very good indeed. Looking forward to a couple more access rooms next year :)

Have stayed here once before and will be my place of choice in Hamilton. Very friendly service. Room was very well presented and comfortable. The staff very helpful with all the requirements I had. The pool and spa was a great asset as it was very hot when i was there. All up, 5 star
