We chose this motel for its location. This motel room and ensuite size were fine. The owner, who was quite friendly, did arrange a room on the bottom, so we did not have to undergo the stairs. The room was clean enough. There was no hand soap in the dispenser, so we had to get it each time from the dispenser in the shower. When we came to cook breakfast however there was very minimum equipment. The two plates were very big, with no other option. Two knives, two forks, one teaspoon. There are better and cheaper Hamilton motels available - we will not be going back. This place is over-priced!

I’m guessing the rooms were recently made over. I booked this place before reading the “tired motel” reviews and was a little apprehensive but I needn’t have worried. Our room 24 greeted us with the smell of fresh new carpet. Fresh paint job too I would think. Large kitchen, great shower with contemporary fittings. Great location, only a short walk into town. Great value too so give it a go!

.Budget friendly motel. Yes a little bit tired but clean and dry warm . Good clean bedding, linen etc. Is good location, Has heat pumps in each room and tvs. Only odd thing is lack of toiletrys. There is a combined body wash shampoo pump in shower but none on hand basin. Odd. Recommend for short stay , especially overnights.

This motel is an older style motel but in a good location just on the outskirts of Hamilton. It is about 2 blocks from Pac N Save supermarket and about 4 blocks from the CBD. The motel room was a good size and had a well equipped kitchen. The receptionist was really nice and showed us to our room when we arrived. We were on the ground floor of the 2 storey building. We used Hamilton as a base for a few days visit Taupo, Tauranga and Matamata (to visit Hobbiton). There a lot of good shops to visit in the CBD and we took time out to visit the botanical gardens. We will stay here again when we return to Hamilton in the future.

I arrived in Hamilton after a long day in Waitomo Cave watching glow worms. It was raining by the time I arrived at the destination, the reception was kind enough to expedite my check-in but once she saw my 3 kids running in, she told me that I only put 3 pax for my room although the room could easily accommodate 5 pax (the exact pax). She told me that her manager demanded extra $20 for that.. I didn’t understand why but I didn’t want to argue much due to the long and fatigue day so I just paid the extra. I didn’t realise that I’d made mistake by keying in the wrong number of pax but the extra was totally unwarranted for. Just so you know.. it was managed by a Chinese (please don’t call me racist as I’m a Chinese myself) but I felt profiteering is being practiced here. My wife complained that the carpet was in need to be cleaned thoroughly as she’s very particular in cleanliness. Lucky for us we only stayed for a night.
