We spent 3 nights in this lodge. It was not modern but the rooms were tidy and neat. There is a full kitchen. It is close to the Waikato Hospital,and an easy walk to the shopping centre. The staff were friendly and helpful.

Our flight to New Zealand got us in around 11:00pm. We decided to take advantage of the night and drive down to Hamilton so we could get an early start at our first destination - Hobbiton. As with most motor lodges, the desk closes around 9pm. We phoned ahead and spoke with the proprietor who was so very understanding. She...

The motel is old but the owners are trying. New bedding, new heat pump, new tv. Unfortunately a bit of paint wouldn't go amiss and the plates were greasy & wet. My biggest issue was the dogs of other guests not only yapping but allowed to wander the grounds without a leash. I don't want to stay in a room...

You'll get what you're paying for. It was the only place I could get, I booked it just 30 minutes before getting there and they had the room ready with a carton of milk in the fridge. If you're used to go fancy places you won't like this one... to have a better time just try to remember the price...

The motel was just as expected, plenty of parking and spacious, clean rooms. What made this stay great were the staff; we had a really delightful lady check us in... Made us feel very welcome and gave us fresh milk for cups of tea! So thank you. I'd recommend.

My title says it all .... Friendly couple running it who helped us with tips to get good fish and chips and information. Not a fancy place but at the price it was definitely good ... all the facilities you need ... Not fancy my any means .... But comfortable and clean.

Location is very convient although an older building unit was clean and well appointed. The first unit we were shown was cramped but on request was cheerfully changed to a larger more comfortable one.

Walked into the room and was instantly hit with an awful smell. The room had clearly not been cleaned properly as there were crumbs on the couch and bits of food on the floor. There were also A LOT of flies hanging around. It was honestly so dirty that we had to leave after five minutes. Would NOT recommend!

Husband had a hospital appointment on two consecutive days so needed to stay overnight in Hamilton. Good comfortable bed and very quiet motel as no road noise. But the unit was very dated and although I was assured we had been upgraded (goodness knows why) I would not have liked to have stayed in a unit that in theory we...
