This is a great choice for your next Hamilton stay. Only 1.5kmto the Casino and CBD plus all the bars and restaurants you could need.
Reasonable prices, Friendly and accommodating staff, really nice units, impeccably clean with beds that you will never want to get out of, full access Sky, and the luxury of a full size spa bath, heaven! (although unfortunately I couldn't enjoy, as because of noise issues you can't use it from 10pm till 8 am.)
There is even a small totally private little courtyard.
All in all a perfect place for your stay in Hamilton... Enjoy!

Thank Michelle R

I stayed one night when I was passing through Hamilton.
My stay was excellent. The room was well appointed, very clean, quiet and had great heating.
The operator, Hogan, was very welcoming and efficient.
I recommend to other travellers.

We had one sleepless night here. This was due to the people in each unit either side partying until we had to intervene with each after 3am. It’s scary having to do that. When I told the Manager about this the next morning he said I should have phoned him. That brings me to the unit size. It was comfortable and clean and tiny. Because there was so little place for storage we did not notice the phone on the small table as it was cluttered with our stuff. Also there was no instruction on the phone that reception was 24hours. Really really disappointed, and yes I guess the owner can’t help guests partying but he had a chance to do something with me to soften the blow eg discount on next booking or money back and chose not to. Will not be back and cannot recommend.

Hi Na0mic, It is disappointing that you gave us a bad review because you did not receive a refund. You had received an upgrade from your original booking and you were happy with the upgrade and considering that you had 2 mountain bike with you that is why we upgrade you to a room with a courtyard at the back so your bikes can be safely stored at the courtyard. As we mention to you when you check out that I had not been made aware of the situation and you had a phone in your room on the table for you in case you need to contact us. (It is impossible to always try to list every detail in the room but looking through the number of accommodations you had reviews shows you are a well-seasoned traveler and it is not hard to find things such as phone on the table that can go unnoticed.

We were met by the receptionist who greeted us and took us to our room to explain the layout of the apartment. A nice touch. There is a double bed, small table and chairs, armchair, wardrobe and bedside table. Also a kitchen area with sink, fridge and microwave. The bathroom has a walk in shower, wash basin and toilet. Air conditioning, TV and internet access also provided. Car can be parked outside the door.
The nearest supermarket is a good 10 minute walk back towards the town, with restaurants a bit further on.
As we stayed for two nights we had anticipated that the apartment would be serviced, but it wasn't, so there was no tea for the second morning. A little disappointing.
The apartment was comfortable, quiet and clean.

I stayed here for a week and it is an excellent place to base yourself whether for a weekend away or for a longer stay. I was in room 7 towards the rear of the property and it was really quiet, exceptionally clean and very comfortable. I had a one bedroom unit with a private courtyard and was a little oasis to go back to after long days out.
Hogan and his team go above and beyond with anything you need, and as I arrived at 2am of the morning, it wasn’t a hassle to check in as Hogan had it all organised for me to get into my room and sort everything out once I’d had a rest after my flight. The parking is a bit tight if you have a large vehicle but is very convenient to your room. I would definitely stay here again on my next visit home and highly recommend this motel to anyone.
