My husband and I just spent three nights here and we were very impressed with our room and the service provided by Lyn, John and Cameron. Wheelchair access to the shower in the bathroom was excellent and the room had a microwave, toaster, coffee maker and full set of crockery and cutlery which was handy. We will happily stay here...

Warmly greeted by the owner and a great room assigned. I heard more noise from the birds at dusk than the traffic on the main road running along the front. The recommendation for dinner was spot on, loved the local Thai. While I had the disabled room so the bathroom was huge to allow for wheel chair access the rest...

Hi Fiona, Thanks for the great review. We don't always tell people this, but we do make quite an effort to make sure we know the local eateries and places of interest so we can match the right place to each guest, and we are a bit spoilt with Thai food in Hamilton with two great choices. So glad you...

Spent two nights here recently and found the room was quite spacious even though there was a queen bed, a single bed, a two seater couch, a dining table with three chairs and an essential range of cooking utilities provided in the kitchenette area. There was a mini bar, complimentary milk on arrival and a television. There is a guest...

Good average motel for our stop over, but the lake is not in view. In fact it's over he highway and worth the effort to wander over there. Clean room, very pleasant staff (proprietors) and up to the usual Best Western standards. Room was quite large and offered facilities for the disabled in need thereof.

Thanks for the Review. You're right, the lake which is just across the road is beautiful and well worth a look while you are in Hamilton. We are still in search of the sometimes spotted platypus, but there is plenty of other wildlife around the lake even the occasional koala and wallaby. Hope to see you again.
