We stayed in Room #1. The bed was very soft and uncomfortable. Facilities were basic and the room felt cramped with limited space. However, the room was clean and the staff friendly. Only a short drive to the centre of town.

Room was comfortable with large bed but definitely dated decor especially the bathroom. Shower was very low so hard to wash hair. Room was a good size with plenty of car parks. Reception hours were limited.

A bit dated but really good value for money. Spacious room with open plan lounge and kitchen. Really comfortably appointed. Great bed. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. Our new "lets stay in Hamilton" place. Huge TV With lots of sky channels.... can also be watched from bed. Book ahead as I noticed the no vacancy sign was out early pm.

Had room 11, for one night, NYE. This room is upstairs, back of reception, over car park, view of next door roof. It was clean. But smoking was permitted, with an ashtray on the balcony. Not enough parking, which is disappointing for a 'motor inn', so getting out of the angle park meant dodging parallel parks outside the ground floor...

We stayed here for a couple of nights. The place is clean and comfortable, has the best walk in shower...a big square shower head with the most amazing water pressure. The bed was a big king split which I like when sleeping with my partner, plenty of room left over for me!! The cleaning staff are super friendly. The pool...

Clean, helpful staff. Dated but for the price was good. Stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment, very spacious. Opened into a park, had a trampoline, indoor pool and spa. Would stay again if passing through Hamilton

Nice clean room and the king bed was comfy. All the sky channels , free use of spa pool and indoor pool. Nice bathroom and kitchen. Close to shops and surprisingly quiet for a main road location. Would stay next time we are over if they have a vacancy. Oh yes Fast WiFi!

We had a good sized, one-room motel unit. It is well maintained and generally clean. The facility is relatively modern and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Parking is free and has lots of space. It is over-all a very pleasant stay for us, and the price is right.
