We won't forget this stay. The owner is very friendly and helpfully and our room was great. The motel is near to the main shopping street. You can find all the attractions and good restaurants in a booklet in your room. We will come back for sure!

Great new motel ideally located close to Stadium with quick easy access off SH1 Hamilton by-pass. Close to Pak n Save & Countdown & restaurant. Room great with all you would expect in modern motel. Need to do away with internet coupons & offer unlimited wifi.

Friendly owners, lovely clean comfy rooms. Only downside I've found is very slow Wifi but this seems to be whatever motel I've stayed at recently. Easy to find and right by Stadium so great if going to a game.
