“Great Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

We recently stayed for the Waikato Balloon Festival and found the room to be clean and well appointed and the beds very comfortable. Unfortunately we left our pillows behind when we left but the owner very kindly offered to bring them up with him when he came through Auckland last week. Even though it was a detour it was never a problem and I am very grateful to him for the extra effort he made to get our pillows back to us. As we had such a great time in Hamilton, including visiting the Gardens and Zoo I am sure we will be back and will definitely stay again.

Dear Suzanne G
Thank you for staying with us during a special time of the Balloon Festival. Going through to Auckland to drop off your pillows was no problem at all as we were on our way north on our holiday anyway. We were very happy to save you the hassle of trying to get them back.

We were recently in Hamilton as my wife was in hospital. We arrived late and the owner was very accommodating and left the room open for us so when we arrived we went straight in. The room was fantastic, very well presented, clean and very comfortable. I would highly recommend this motel and I will definitely take my wife there now she is on the mend :-)

Hi Charles B.
Thank you for your great review. The issue of late arrival times have been mentioned by other reviewers and your review is testimony of the fact that with prior arrangement this is no problem at all. We are very happy that you had a comfortable stay during a testing time with your wife in hospital. We are certainly looking forward to welcoming you back to our motel.

Location was great for Hamilton and the surrounding area, quiet road - except if there is an event on at the Waikato stadium opposite. Not a problem as the owners were very helpful and we went to the rugby match that night! Rooms very good, comfortable and clean, heated pool as well and a spa bath in all the rooms. Will stay there again next time we are back in Hamilton.

Room Tip: Rooms 13,14 and 15 look out over the stadium but get booked quickly for big matches at the stadium...

Dear Norton H.
Thank you for your review on your stay at our motel. Our units are all fitted out with spa baths and the lovely heated pool is certainly a very popular attraction. Fortunately, on those game nights most people staying at the motel actually attend the game. What you have done was really remarkable. Instead of allowing the game day situation to affect you, you went along to watch the Chiefs play. Welcome to the Chiefs Supporters Club!!!!!

I arrived at the hotel late in the evening and was told that there were fully booked, so they had put me in a two bedroom suite, which I did not need. They were really pleasant and the room was very nice. I am not sure if every room has a hot tub, but the one I was in did. The room was well equipped and the internet coverage was fine. The location is right opposite the Chiefs stadium, so it might not be the best place to stay when there is a game on, as it could get noisy, but I do not know that for a fact. There is a nice restaurant / pub in walking distance, and a grocery and liquor store that is also walkable. The hotel is not near the center of Hamilton so be aware of that.

Dear Nomolos.
Thank you for your review on Park View Motor Lodge. All our units are indeed fitted with spa baths and the internet provided is free of charge. We were also very happy to accommodate you in a larger unit as we did not have any studio units left for the night.

A typical motel appearance hides the fact that the Park View Motor a Lodge provides a level of comfort and facilities that would put many more aspiration all hotels to shame.

The carton of milk handed over with a welcoming word and a smile set the tone. Our room was very well equipped and the king size bed really comfortable. There was a small kitchen area with full-size sink and fridge. The spacious bath/shower room had a bath with spa-style jets.

Dear Savik. Thank you very much for your great review. We do believe that our facilities and the level of comfort provided by the units would satisfy most guest's expectations.....and our commitment to customer care would not be matched by anyone. We are blessed with fantastic people that stay at our property and that makes our day even more enjoyable! Harry

Arrived at the motel about 4pm for an overnight stay and checked in without any problems. Reception very helpful. Room VERY clean and tidy.Everything you could want in a motel. Bed very comfortable, TV tuned in properly , unlike a lot of more expensive hotels. Breakfast was brought to our room and was excellent. Highly recommended.

We wanted somewhere convenient between Auckland and New Plymouth, as we were flying up from Christchurch the same day. Hamilton is a couple of hours' drive south and there is motorway most of the way.

The motel lies opposite the Stadium (very handy if you're a rugby fan!) and I was at first concerned that we might experience some disturbance, but was reassured when I discovered there was no fixture on the date of our visit. It turned out to be a good choice - we received a warm welcome and liked the unit we'd booked, which had separate sleeping and facilities for self-catering. Shops are also close at hand.

Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Larger units offer plenty of space

Dear Australophiles. Thank you for taking the time to place feedback on your recent stay at our Motel. Our location close to the Waikato Stadium is indeed very handy for anyone attending a game....especially if your are wearing the correct colors of red, yellow and black!!! It is only a short stroll across the road to the Stadium entrance. There is however, only a few local games played during the season and if you are not a rugby fan, make sure you check with us for those game dates. Outside of game days or other events, the Stadium offers no disturbance whatsoever and our Motel is conveniently situated away from the noisy main roads, yet close to the CBD, grocery stores and restaurants.
