Exceptional”

The place was very clean. The room was a good size. The bed was very comfortable. Shower was a good size although the water drained very slowly. The staff was very friendly. I had booked through Agoda and had requested late checkout at 11am. Just wondering if they keep a record of who requests late check out as we got a knock at 10.30 on check out day to remind us of check out. The staff was very friendly and said “ it’s ok you can check out at 11”. My point being they should have known we were going to check out at 11 anyway. Great place to stay never the less.

Excellent stay in Hamilton”

Stayed here one night on way home but wished it was for longer as the unit was so well serviced (cooking facilities) and the rooms were very spacious. The bathroom was my favourite as it was huge and so clean. Bed was so comfortable that I asked the receptionist the make for when we next replace ours. Will definitely stay here again when we visit Hamilton.

An excellent location on SH1 in Hamilton, and a warm and clean room ready for us when we arrived. I like the contactless check-in - we booked online, the motel phoned to confirm room number, on arrival we went straight to the room.

Right in the middle of Hamilton, no real road noise even though next to SH1. Heard the emergency helicopter a few times, very comforting sound. Extremely clean rooms, bed could have done with a topper pad as fairly hard for us oldies.

Convenient high-quality motel”

Our room was modern and very comfortable. The bathroom was particularly good as it was large and had a great walk-in shower. The appliances were also newer than those we had in other motels in NZ. The front desk were very friendly. The motel was conveniently located on SH1 near the intersection with SH3 which was good for us as we had arrived from Taupo, had a day trip to the Waitomo Glowworm Caves, and were returning to Auckland. On the downside however being right on the highway did make it slightly more difficult to get in and out of the motel. The motel was also very clean but we did find a bug during our stay under the bin which is why we can only give the motel 4 stars on that metric. Overall however this was a really good, high-quality motel which we would recommend staying in if you are using Hamilton as a base for a few days while travelling through the North Island.
