“Great place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012

Extremely well kept, clean & tidy. The rooms have everything you need to make your stay enjoyable. The rooms are nicely decorated, the beds are comfy, the shower is excellent & the spa bath is a bonus! The lodge is obviously convenient for the satdium but it is also really close to town too.

After being welcomed by a friendly and helpful staff,we stayed only one night in a downstairs room,got a good sleep(we were not bored by the daylight) in a large comfy bed.The room was spotless with plenty of storage,We were amazed by the bathroom with a good selection of toiletries, spabath,handy shower and overall Grohe plumbing fixtures!We didn't used the kitchen and the heated indoor pool.
The free wifi and AC worked well
We had a good dinner in The Thai Classic restaurant 783 Victoria street


Highly recommended!

Room Tip: booked a downstairs room to avoid the stairs!

The first part of our family holiday, we stayed in a few places during our month long trip to NZ. of all the places we stayed, the Park View was our equal first wchoice with the Grand Chancellor at Auckland's viaduct, which is saying a lot as we were VIP guests at the Grand, so Park View really flexed it's muscles in that regard.
The location of the Park View was excellent, the rooms were looked after every day by the staff and are hosts were very very nice.
Within cooee of Pak n Save and the cdb, so everything was near by and travelling in and out of Hamilton was a breeze.
Of our whole trip, my personal favourite activity was walking out the front door of our room, crossing the road to the stadium and watching the Chiefs defeat the Waratahs ...while eating a sausage on a stick..YAY !!!!

I will be staying again.

Room Tip: I found the ground floor rooms were more convenient because you didn't have stairs to climb with...

Park View Motor Lodge was highly recommended to me by family members who've stayed before so I thought why not! First impressions last so my first impression was that this motor lodge is very well presented professionally and Mandi the host was inviting and helpful. The decor of my room was tasteful, well presented and inviting. The bathroom was spacious even with a great big spa bath, the room had an air con although the room temp was perfect. There were great facilities for cooking etc, a comfortable king bed and overall spotlessly clean. The motor lodge cleaning staff were also very friendly and made sure that their service was just that, so I could just relax! It was amazingly quiet too which was what I hoped for. The best part of my stay however would've been the heated pool and the awesome spa pool right next to it with loads of towels on hand. I loved every minute of my stay and would definitely recommend to all. I no doubt will be visiting again in the future, thanks Park View Motor Lodge :)

I had a fantastic stay here at the Park View Motor Lodge. We're going through a crazy bathroom renovation at home and I just couldn't take it any more! I needed comfort, quiet, space and an actual bathroom! The Lodge was all that and more. The room was so inviting and the shower was superb! The owners are just amazing - super nice and helpful. All of the staff are wonderful. I had the peace and space to get a lot of work done. The room was extremely comfortable. I was very sorry to check out. I would not hesitate to recommend the Park View Motor Lodge to anyone needing a well presented, comfortable, clean and friendly place to stay, even if you actually live in Hamilton and just need to escape! I booked directly with the Lodge - I certainly got value for money. Their rates are cheaper by booking directly with them than any website deal.

I stayed at Park View Motor Lodge recently for a two day business meeting and found the Lodge to be well run and the rooms well presented and clean. The staff were very helpful and advised me of various places of interest to visit in the area. Unfortunately I did not have time to visit much of Hamilton but do intend to return on a pleasure trip. Highly recommend this Lodge for either business, family or just a trip away. Well deserving of 5 stars.

A group of us stayed whilst playing in a golf tournament in Hamilton.
The location of the Motor Lodge was perfect, the staff efficient and the rooms suited perfectly.
When I next travel to Hamilton, I will stay again.

Dear John M. Thank you very much for your excellent review. We have some great golf courses around Hamilton and having a good choice of excellent Motels to cater for your accommodation needs also helps. Nothing like soaking the sore muscles in the spa bath or the heated pool after a day out hitting birdies!! Hope to see you back at Park View Motor Lodge again soon. Harry
