Clean, well equipped apartment. The bed was very comfortable. Nice touches like leaving a bottle of milk and a decent selection of beverages including filter coffee. Staff were very helpful. Nearest cafés a minimum of twenty minutes walk away but a reasonable choice of eateries. We liked Craft, good beer and excellent pizzas.

We are a group of 8 ladies who were really pleased with our two 3 bedroom units at Camelot On Ulster. The units were spacious and clean, and it's just a short walk to the supermarket. We will definitely stay again if we're back in Hamilton. NB: The Hamilton Gardens are amazing (and free).

We were only here for a night and had booked into the three bed unit. Found it to be modern, well setup, warm, light, clean, lovely beds, and generally couldn't fault the room, locality or parking. The location was perfect being close to the stadium, city centre and Countdown shopping mall.

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Camelot On Ulster is comfortable and very clean. But we were disturbed through the first night by other guests (from Saturday to Sunday). The next night was quiet because there were not so many guests.

I stayed just one night at Camelot on Ulster. I had booked an upstairs room (cheaper room rate). The accommodation was warm and comfortable, but I was disturbed through the night by other guests walking in the upstairs corridor.

It was a delight to stay in this motel. Recently refurbished, the owners have done a fabulous job of upgrading what has been a long-established facility. We had a very warm welcome from the staff and found the unit to be spotless, comfortable and quiet. We would definitely consider staying here again. Well done, guys!
