“Very nice hotel, this is my second stay here.”
Reviewed 6 December 2012

The owners (Brian and Dorothy) are very accommodating and helpful. We were staying on holiday and all their recommendations for travel and sight seeing were perfect and made the trip all that much better. The hotel rooms are excellent, beds perfect and comfortable, the oversized bathrooms are equipped with jetted tubs and tile floors, and very large! The kitchen area has a refrigerator, microwave, sink and utensils too, made you feel like you were at home. Several times we walked down town to grab a bite to eat, or shop. Brian, the owner, went out of his way several times to drive us to the airport and pick us up, he made you feel like you were part of his family. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone, and the price was very reasonable too for what you receive. I will definitely stay at Stadium Motel on my next visit to Hamilton.

Room Tip: Brian and Dorothy will provide the best room according to availability!

We had a very comfortable stay at the stadium motel apartments whilst in Hamilton for a little more than a week for a family wedding . The service we received was second to none...thanks to Dorothy and Brain who we found to be extremely friendly and accomodating.

The rooms are very modern, clean, comfortable and bathrooms are fitted with spa baths. We liked the location as it was just a short drive to the shops, restaurants and the town center but at the same time quiet enough.

Would certainly recommend this motel and look fwd to staying there again in my next trip.

Room Tip: Apartments facing Willoughby road are large and sunny

We ended up in Hamilton after leaving the Waitomo Caves where we had been on a 5 hour Black Abyss tour. ..in other words. . while it was wonderful, we were exhausted and cold. Brian, the host, was wonderful from the first. Got us a great rooms for our family (family suite) (2 parents, 2 college students) and gave us wonderful recommendations for dinner. . . .realistic reviews. Only stayed one night, but the rooms were comfortable, good price, and would highly recommend. The rooms had dishes, kitchen, and refrigerator. Great for a family. The place was quiet, although I guess if there had been a game at the stadium across the way it might have been noisier. .. . although we might have attended, so not noticed. Brian also was very knowledgeable about the area and gave us directions to various other places too. Thanks Brian!

Stayed here a week during which had family health issues also requiring a change to our bookings and a trip to Blenheim. The service and friendliness of the hosts was outstanding, the facilities were fantastic, and the support in a difficult time was exemplary. I'd recommend this motel to anyone, and certainly any time I'm back in Hamilton this would be my first, and hopefully only, choice of a place to stay. Thanks heaps!

What a fantastic motel with very high quality rooms,service, and cleaniness.I have stayed here 3 times now and will only ever stay here whilst in Hamilton.
The owners are second to none and treat you with respect and as vip guests.These days I find great quality service hard to come by, at the Stadium Motel you get the whole package.I travel alot on business overseas and throughout NZ and if other hotels/motels demonstrated everything Stadium has to offer the accomodation industry would be booming.Definately would encourage other motel owners to take a leaf out of Terry and Yvonnes book .Very high class motel and owners and grade this place as not excellent,but very very very outstanding.

My family and I stayed for 8 nights in one of the motels 3 bedroom self contained apartments.

We found the motel to be very quiet, modern, clean and confortable. We appreciated the daily paper.

The managers could not have been more friendly and helpfull. We loved having the heaters on for our cold winter midnight arrival.

Would certainly reccommend this motel and will be staying again next year.

Very pleasantly surprised. Being from Hamilton myself I had expected this motel to be a little noisy, but its just enough off the main drag to be quiet, but with all the benefits of being close to the city.

The service I received was fantastic, the manager greeted me by name and was very friendly.

The room was clean, and had everything you could want for a city stop.

  • Liked — The friendly service
  • Disliked — Not getting a chance to use the spa bath
