Both My Wife & Myself went over to Hamilton & we Prebooked into The Aquarius Motor Inn & we found everyone here very friendly & very Helpful . We had a Studio unit which was Spotlessly clean. We asked The owner for extra towels for each day & never forgot. The pool was very clean & we would stay here...

Was clean but needs updating. Bed could have done with a new mattress as the one I had was old and hard and probably past its use by date. I noticed that the cupboards in bathroom did not meet and a few stains in carpet and it just looked old and tired Hosts were awesome and friendly Centrally located

They say a picture tells a thousand words, but in this case, the pictures didn't tell the full story. While the unit was clean, apart from some stains on the carpet, it was very dated in its decor and quite inconvenient. There were no easy chairs and to watch the television one had to sit (or lie) on the beds....

We stayed here with two young children and enjoyed it. There is a large downstairs area with functional kitchen and big dining room table. Two rooms upstairs with comfy clean beds. Nice staff, shared guest laundry. Looks like the place was recently refurbished but they need to clean the walls a bit. Other than the walls everything else was very...

Having a small family to consider, we really think about where we stay. The hosts were very polite and lovely with great customer services. The room itself was out dated with a 90s nostalgia and semi clean. The pool was unusable as it had a malfunction and was waiting on a part to fix the problem. All and all we...

Facilities extremely poor. Smelly dirty room which hadn't even been cleaned and with a bath which didn't even work - offered to move us after we had totally unpacked knowing that we wouldn't - no discount offered. Old chewing gum stuck to carpet under the beds in lounge and bedroom. Owner had the audacity to falsely accuse us of damaging...

This Guest checked in on the 12th December 2015 and stayed for 1 night. On check out did not tell us about the broken coffee table or the wallpaper that was scratched off into a circular shape and left. We contacted the guest about this but the guest insisted the wallpaper damage was not their doing and told us the...

I stayed for 2 nights in March for work as where I normally stay didn't have 2 nights available. I have stayed at Aquarius Motor Inn many years ago and knew it may be a little dated in some aspects now. That said I was more than happy with my room that was clean and had everything I needed, lounge...

We are at here at the moment and the room is nice and tidy. Even though it was small it was OK for us for one night. The owners are very friendly and made sure we were comfortable. Has an inside heated pool and free WiFi. Also has a little kitchenette, bathroom set up nicely.

Yes the service was good but once we got to our room it was not what we had paid for, holes in the walls, carpet ripped up, curtains didn't fully go across the window and just not a very pleasant room to be in. Also stated it had a heated pool which was freezing. Have stayed at much nicer places...
