“Bit disappointed”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

The room was ALOT smaller than it looked in the photos, rather like a McDs Bigmac.The room smelt musty and there was not enough hot water to run a Spa Bath. The bath was cold and there was no hot water again that night to do the dishes or try and have another Spa Bath. For the price paid that is not good enough and I would not stay here again.

Thank you for your review, but we find it a little confusing as you did not stay with us. Your family stayed and we understand from them that they thoroughly enjoyed their stay and would come again.

We stayed there for one night. We had 3 bedrooms with two hotels. The whole motel was clean with the receptionist giving us recommendations on places to go. With spacious toilets, kitchen and living room and TVs with good selection of channels, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves there. Wished that we had stayed longer though.

Won tickets to Chiefs game and as a treat we thought we would splash out on a motel, more than what we wanted to pay but it was well worth it, Spa bath, relax, sky tv, hop skip and jump to the stadium, couldn't ask for much more than that. Made our 1 night stay feel like a treat. Hope to stay again sometime.

A recent football game took us to the Stadium Motel and from the 1st phone call to reception to book, I knew this would be good. Brian and Dorothy made us more than welcome, provided great information about the surroundings and really provided a good standard of accommodation in a great city - I loved hamilton, the people are so down to earth and the city really is a nice place to be. I'll be back, hopefully for a Chiefs Final 3 years in a row.

Room Tip: Best Accommodation of you are going to Waikato Stadium - Just be sure to have your car parked before...

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!
