...and we expected a nice place given the other reviews on Trip Advisor. However when we got there we were pleasantly surprized. Clare met us in the parking lot as we pulled in and helped get us organized and to our upstairs room. After showing us around the room she let us collapse after our drive from Taupo. Later she recommended a perfect spot for dinner after asking what we thought we were looking for. Best of all the recommendation came with a 25% off coupon. After dinner we settled in for a relaxing and very comfortable night. There was a bit of road noise, largely because we ignored Clare's advise about closing the windows, opting for fresh air instead. In the morning we got another great recomendation for breakfast (alas no discount coupon) and then we were off to Auckland for the long flight home.
Hamilton was po-po'd by a lot of Kiwi's we talked to in other cities, but largely because of the Argent and Clare's restaruant recomendations we enjoyed our short time there.
