Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Average Motel with less than impressive service from the owners, managers and staff. I booked the Spa Studio - Room only for $189.00 for 1 night. There are very few good motels in Hamilton that you 100% trust to be clean. This cleanliness was reasonable but I dare not walk on the carpet in bare feet. In the morning I tried to contact staff to get some coffee. No response to phone calls or knocking on door x 3 separate times within the hours of operation.

Without doubt the worst accommodation that I have ever used. I was traveling for business and had three nights there. Every night there were people talking loudly outside, noisy cars and cars coming and leaving until at least 3am. uncomfortable bed and pillow doesn't help either. If you want to sleep at night don't use this accommodation.

Booked online, requested downstairs room due to bad arthritis. On arrival found that the type of room booked was upstairs ( no mention on website) but ilno problems changing us to downstairs. Room had everything needed, spa bath out of order but wasn't going to use it so no problem for us. Good location especially if going to FMG stadium. Had long term people (according to two of the children who visited our room) next door but apart from the children playing right outside unit all afternoon, were quiet and no problems. Unit was clean, bed comfy ,would stay again.

Staff here were very accommodating for our group. Unit was very clean and tidy, with everything you need. Luxurious linen and extremely comfortable beds. Good parking. There was some traffic noise during the night and of course crowd noise from the stadium right next door. But would definitely return if staying in Hamilton again due to cleanliness and the quality of the room.

The Arena must be one of the cleanest places we have stayed at while touring the north island. Beautiful clean rooms, kitchen, bathroom. The kitchenette was awesome especially with decent fridge, toaster and cook top making it super handy. Luxury of two televisions, really comfty beds and helpful staff to fit us all in. Would of happily stayed on. Thank you. See you again!

Handy location and easy to find. Plenty of places to eat within easy walking distance or a supermarket. Very clean, and well appointed. Shame our unit didn’t have a couch or 2 armchairs to sit on to watch TV. Comfortable bed and excellent shower.

Positives are location, presentation is amazingly clean for a competitive price however we were disappointed that they were advertising on their own website via their booking system that if you booked directly you received a complementary continental breakfast. We were advised due to COVID breakfast was not available when we asked at check-in. At the time we were in level 1 & they were happy to provide milk for hot drinks so why not packet cereal & fruit etc? We were offered a full refund if we did not want to stay however as it was 4.30pm that was not acceptable.
