We were very nicely welcomed by a nice young lady who gave us advices about what to visit while in town. We really loved the large new room, well equipped kitchen and bathroom with good quality toiletries. The bed was a super king and we slept like babies after our long flight. Laundry facilities were very handy.

Very well located (short drive to city Centre, Hamilton Gardens etc), plenty of parking, free WiFi, clean, comfortable and modern. Very helpful staff. Very impressed with the breakfast. Maybe request a ground level room if you have heavy luggage.

A very well equipped Motel which is an ideal stop in Hamilton. The owner, Graham, just happened to be going to the races, the same as us, and on to Bluestone for Dinner, the same as us, and we both had a great day. A brilliant night's sleep and everything you could want in a Motel. Would stay again next...

Everything was as other reviews say. Perfectly clean, service perfect, and we even received an unexpected breakfast. The continental breakfast was large and tasty. Would definitely have no hesitation to recommend this motel to family and friends.

The room was super clean. We had a stove, microwave, refrigirator and of course coffee making equipment (electric kettle, plunger coffee). Nice space with a sofa. Very roomy. The "kitchen" is a bit seperate from the room. The Bathroom was also very roomy as well as spotless. The host showed us to the room and explained all the equipment and...
