Im not normally one to complain but I booked here as there was limited options left. The photos on here need to be updated. The room I was staying in had some random guys underwear left from the last stay and they wern't hard to miss meaning the room hadnt had a proper clean. The walls must be very thin as you can hear everything in the other rooms around you. This became really annoying when trying to do study or trying to sleep at night when you could hear next doors tv, someone showering or them talking late into the night. Service at the front desk was alright, the lady was nice but There was also a $100 bond that had to be paid on arrival, which apparently is stated on there website but I couldn't see it anywhere when booking. I was lucky to have spare $100 for 3 days as otherwise I wouldn't have been able to stay or get a refund.

This was easily the worst place we have ever stayed at. We were made to pay a $100 deposit on top of room rate and room was inspected before they returned it. No one would pilfer anything from this place unless it was to take it to the rubbish dump. There was nothing good about this place. Uncomfortable beds, TV with poor sound, one tiny heater, ice cold bathroom. Paper thin walls so we could hear the next door person snoring all night and occupants on the other side returned at 12.40am and talked loudly for about 2 hours. No sleep at all and constantly felt uneasy. While not unclean, it was obvious that sheets and towels were laundered on site, which we saw happening on arrival. The rude staff here should be ashamed of themselves and take a course in customer service. Do not ever stay here even if you are broke, sleeping in your car is a better option.

This is perhaps one of the worst places I have stayed EVER. The room cost $530 for what is normally a $100 room due to Field Days. Everything felt sticky and dirty. The room was very tired with no maintenance since the motel was built possibly 40 years ago. The shower lacked any water pressure and as a result all you could do is have a farm wash. The bed had an old heavy mattress and the bed base made a strange creaking noise every time I moved. The walls are paper thin. Not good when you could hear the guy next door using the toilet or when the prostitute came calling. The photos shown on TripAdvisor are not an accurate representation of this motel.

We booked this by accident thinking it was the other Abbotts in Hamilton. Awfully rude staff. Hadnt even got through the door and the rudeness ensued. Very run down and dirty. We got a refund immediately and drove to Auckland. Definitely wouldn't recommend staying here ever

This was booked for me and unfortunately no local alternatives were available otherwise I would have left. This motel does the motel industry in Hamilton no good at all. Dated in every respect. Scruffy reception staff with poor English. Terrible dated bathroom and kitchen which have had no attention or TLC since the 70s. Although it was March there was no heating in evidence in the room. No air con. No Sky. "Owner say cannot afford". So why was I charged $169 for the Saturday of my stay. Clearly price gouging is on the agenda as normal rates appear much lower.
