A great room, super host and hostess, and s wonderful pub within walking distance. Who can ask for more from a motel? Oh yes, the bathroom has a JACUZZI as well as a shower! Add free parking and Free Wifi and great TV including movies and you just can't go wrong.

We only stayed for 1 night but I can't speak highly enough of Arena Court, it was probably one of best motels we stayed in during our 2 weeks in the North Island. It is pretty new, very clean, comfortable and spacious. The wifi connection was excellent too. Easy access (by car) to the centre of Hamilton, and the Gardens....

Very clean, well appointed room. Great value with added extras like welcoming mints and actually flowing soap! Friendly owners add to the charm. Central location, handy to city and easy to find. Totally recommend.

I recently stayed at Arena Court Motel and I was so impressed with how clean and modern the amenities were. The owner managers are so personable and nothing is ever too much. They were fantastic with my kids and offered so much great information on attractions and eateries in the area. We will definitely be staying again.

The 2nd time we have stayed at this Motel in a Spa bath unit. It is so well appointed with everything we needed and beautifully clean. Comfortable bed. Most of all it was lovely and warm during a cold and wet weekend. Could improve on the Coffee Pot - it is a bit small for 2 people and had to...

Nothing beats excellence than exceptional. Debbie and Lloyd are without doubt (my personal opinion only) the best that exists in the Hamilton Motel scene. Their attention to detail in the way they present their units is just awesome. The moment I step in the door, I know that everything is ready for me. I can cook, I can eat and...

2 bedroom room was great! The woman who greeted us was lovely and friendly and offered us extra milk for our large family. Room was modern and well equipped. Location next to stadium and close to CBD was excellent and easy to find. It was surprisingly quiet

We were on a Guiding trip to the snow with 11 girls and 3 adults when we found ourselves stranded on the Waikato Expressway due to vehicle malfunction for 3 hours! After calling numerous hotels, motels, campsites in the area, none willing to take us on, we finally found and called Arena Court at 11pm at night! The manager was...
