“Great place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

After a long day in Canberra I travelled out to Hamiltons (quick 10 minute taxi ride from CBD) late one evening and was met by Margaret and her husband (under new management). Check in was efficient and although the kitchen had closed they made me schnitzel and chips which was devine! Rooms very clean. Nothing was too much trouble and they were very efficient in arranging taxi pickup early the next morning.Recommend staying there. Kim.

Our family stayed a week at this motel a few weeks ago, the room was outdated and in need of refurbishment, the beds are hard and not comfortable at all. Management would at times leave the office unattended with a note taped to the front door, stating office closed from time to time?? When we tried to ring the contact number on the door, it diverted to a mobile number with message bank. The meals were not the best? Cleaning staff were however very helpful and obliging, but we noticed a cleaning staff member smoking outside rooms, which is not professional at all. Parking spaces are small and unallocated to rooms, our fridge freezer was heavily frosted up and smelly, and we had some small rips on our bed cover. And on occasion in the reception area, it would be more professional to close off the door, when dealing with guests, as kitchen staff were very loud, and we could see a pile of dishes on the bench area, which looked dirty and unorganised. We will never go back to this motel again.

Nothing to get too excited about here -

The pros - cheap? Average cleanliness....

The cons - had to get some linen from the manager that the cleaning staff had forgotten to leave in room. Several lights didn't work. Bedroom TV barely watchable. Small car parking spaces. It took a while to find the motel from the map supplied.

To be fair, I will need to rate Hamiltons against another establishment we have stayed with in Queanbeyan. Hamiltons internet site left me thinking they refurbished every room, so I probably expected more than what was on offer. The rate was exactly the same as the other motel we had stayed in, so my expectations were high.

What's Good: Nice people to deal with. Rooms are neat. New couch and dining table make room pleasant. Plenty of tea making supplies. Mini kitchen for making own breakfast etc. Nice supply of toiletries. Fresh milk on offer!!

What's Not: Beds average. Some cleaning issues eg around curtains in main room, and shower mould. Average sleep quality. Reception could be more inviting - eg close the door to the kitchen, not great first impression - stale food smells etc. Just the little things that are being forgotten. No biggies.

The room we stayed in was big, spotless and quite modern for a motel. The managers here are friendly. Service is personal, with healthy meals cooked for you & served in your room. Good location: 2 minute drive from town with lovely restaurants. Although it is near a main road, its very quiet. What you expect from a motel. (Before coming in here, we stopped at two other local motels, they didn't even come to the reception office when we rang the bell, within the reception hours on their sign.)

Room Tip: There is at least one room with a spa in the bedroom ;)

Hamiltons Townhouse has big rooms, lovely, personal service and home cooked meals served in your room. It is a bit of a hike to any restaurants or shopping if you don't have your car but although on the highway, it is quiet. Breakfast delivery only starts at 7.15am which can be a problem if you have early business and delivery time seems to be on 'Queanbeyan time' but the family running the hotel was friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Most rooms upstairs so if you have a heavy case see if you can get a downstairs room.

After a change of Management couple this lovely place has now returned to normal!!
It is now once again, very clean, very quiet and nothing is now a problem for the new managers!
Jude and Sonia are lovely and very proffessional.
They are now serving great, healthy homemade meals to rooms...a nice change for the corporate traveller!
Nothing is an issue for them. After falling very ill on my last business trip to Canberra, they showed me great compassion and kindness.
To all you regular Reps that used to stayy here when Toni and Joe ran this place..please, please comeback..it is safe to return..those lazy, dirty, interim Managersare now gone...for good!!
All is fabulous again at the Hamiltons Townhouses

Room Tip: Again as a female Rep, travelling alone I pefer the rooms upstairs. Even on a busy road the rooms ar...
