Stayed at the Arena Court motel for four nights for the Mystery Creek Field days. The service from Lloyd was absolutely fantastic and the rooms were immaculate. They even managed to squeeze me in to stay again at short notice. Thank you team for the enjoyable experience.

I arrived late for a function from the far north on the 31st May for a three night stay at The Arena Court Lodge and was frantically just trying to book in and get to where I had to be....I was extremely impressed with the lady servicing the other rooms...She got me in my room had me parked up and headed in the right direction and all before payment..{ pay in the morning sir the Stadium is that way }...And off I went ....I met Lloyd that evening ,paid the man and was off again....He is a happy chappy.
My 1 brm Apt was excellent ,Absolutely No problems in Recommending this place to others...even though my stay was shortened to two days ....I must say ...That I certainly will be booking here again ...

Great motel, great people!! Very clean and tidy. I cannot fault this motel. Loved the spa bath, was very relaxing after a day spent at the hospital visiting my Dad. Central location and reasonably quiet.

We went to Hamilton to see Billy Connelly at Claudelands. We found the Arena Court very comfortable, within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Our room was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The friendly and helpful staff made our stay all the more pleasant. We would certainly stay here again and recommend it to friends.

An overnight stay in Hamilton for a rugby match & no better place to stay the Arena Court.
Only a 5 minute walk to the venue.
New owners Lloyd & Debbie were very welcoming.
The rooms were comfortable, clean & tidy.
On checking out I advised Lloyd the TV reception was quite bad & the bathroom lacked a shelf. He said he would look into these concerns.
It was very pleasing to receive, on returning home, confirmation that the TV was fixed, the reason the reception was poor & advice they would look into our recommendation for more shelving.
They had even attached a free continental breakfast voucher for our next stay.

Thank you for your review and making us aware of improvements. With a constant change over of guests in units, often a wire can be knocked, the radio off station, a light bulb blows, so we appreciate being advised of these and other suggestions. We look forward to providing for your accommodation requirements the next time you are in Hamilton.

This motel is very centrally located to the CBD of Hamilton, only a few minutes away from two local supermarkets and a few more minutes walk you are in central Hamilton. I stayed in a studio spa unit. The room feels very new, clean and tidy, and everything is in good working order. The mattresses are firm. The studio has a heatpump which is great for summer and I presume warm in winter. The kitchenette is well equipped and easy to use. TV has freeview with 3 sky sports channel and a movies channel. The spa bath is excellent and the bathroom has a separate shower also. The staff is fantastic very welcoming and courteous. The price for the unit is very reasonable as well. I highly recommend this motel and would consider staying here again in the future.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the road is better if you want a sleep in.

We were in Hamilton for a party at the Speights Ale House, which was 2 minutes walk from the Arena Court. So this location was ideal for us. And would be great if you were in Hamilton for a rugby or cricket match too.
Very nice, clean and modern rooms.
While we hardly spent any time in them, I would still recommend and hope to use this venue again in the future.
Very accommodating and friendly staff.
