“Can't be faulted!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2010

Stayed here for 2 nights n Dec 2009 and found it to be perfect. Rooms are spotlessly clean, spacious, very well apponted bathroom with spa bath and small well equipped kitchenette.

The motel is situated just out of the town centre and is very quiet - but may not be te same when there's a rugby match on in the stadium opposite. Excellent value for $100 per night. Recommended.

We booked the Park View for 2 nights in Hamilton, NZ. We were greeted by new managers who had just taken over the property. All the staff were pleasant and accomodating and the property is well maintained. The free wi-fi internet access, kitchenette and whirlpool bath made the room very comfortable and enjoyable.

The Park View Motor Lodge is located across the road from a sports stadium so hardly a Park View really. Ideal for sporting fans when there is something on, but a little out of town for a family passing through.
Room was neat, clean, well appointed and spacious. Free Wifi and laundry facilities were available and staff were very helpful.

We had picked Hamilton as a destination and then heard that there wasn't anything to do there and then saw lots of bad reviews of hotels. We paid a little more for this motel than we did in other cities to ensure that it was a decent one and it sure was. The receptionist was absolutely lovely, even lending me an umbrella when we went into town. The two bedroom suite was lovely and roomy with all the facilities you needed. It has a super litle swimming pool that was lovely and warm, a hot tub and a sauna (which you need to book so that they can heat it for you). Its a bit of a walk into town but pleasant enough. The river walk is lovely. Would def. stay here again if we went to Hamilton.

Arrived Friday pm, kids & I jumped straight into heated pool - just lovely after a 4hr drive.
Spa also great. Not too busy, so had pool to ourselves. Went to the rugby on Saturday night, just a walk across the road! Rooms spacious, kitchen could be a little bigger but bathroom with shower & spa bath great. Beds very comfortable and Sky TV in lounge, kids bedroom & our room - very impressive. Would definitely recommend to other travellers. Short walk to Pak N Save around the corner.

Strayed here in early Feb 2009. Nice rooms bit I bet it would be noisy if the rugby was on in the stadium accporss the road. Our room was on the road side and subjected to noise of drunken teenagers and road racers, it was a Saturday night. Using the air con would help here. There was a SKY TV team staying at the Hotel and as they wanted to smoke they were outside with booze until quite late and making a noise which we thought the management should have handled.
The spa was not working and the pool was freezing and shortened my life by about two years.
Rooms were very comfortable though

This is a terrific spot for families. The room was spacious, the facilities were easy to access and didn't seem to be in huge demand at any given time. Although walking distance to the main street, the lodge was tucked away against the ovals and had no traffic noise. Everything was clean and well kept and the hosts were obliging and friendly. Self catering was made easy with the provision of kitchenware in the 2bed units and 2 huge supermarkets within a couple of blocks.

  • Liked — no line up to use anything
  • Disliked — expected a 'park view', not the Waikato Chief's home ground
