“Clean and spacious!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2009

We stayed in a 3 bedroom unit which was very clean and spacious. In the main bedroom there was a double or queen bed with a TV and in the other 2 rooms there were 2 single beds in each, with a wardrobe in each bedroom. There was also a sofa bed in the lounge for extra guests. There was a trampoline right outside our unit where the kids could be seen from the lounge if they were outside.

There is a Pak n Save supermarket on the same road as this Motor Inn, about a 10-15 minute walk or a very short drive, which was very handy for making use of the well equipped kitchen in the unit.

My only negative was the headboard on the bed would make a noise with every toss and turn. Other than that, we'd definitely stay there again.

The Camelot is about 10/15 mins walk from the main area of Hamilton. The owner - Warren - is a very friendly helpful man.
The rooms are modern, clean and contain everything in terms of utilities. They are all non-smoking which was a plus for me.
This is no 4 star hotel, but if you are looking for a clean, functional place to stay close to everything in Hamilton then this is a good choice

Why doesn't this motel have any AA stars? It is excellent. The units are large, modern and very comfortable. We actually had a hybrid king studio/1 bedroom unit which meant bedroom and bathroom could be separated from living/dining and kitchen area by sliding doors. The king bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was very big with a spa bath. I had a look round at the other studio, 1 bed, 2 bed and 3 bedroom units and they are all much bigger than the usual motel units. If you are a keen walker you can walk into town in 10/15 minutes. If, like us, you prefer to drive it is a very short drive but parking in town is a bit of a nightmare. The owners were very helpful with local information and we would thoroughly recommend this motel to anyone visiting Hamilton who didn't need to be in the actual city centre.

  • Liked — The size and facilities in the apartment
