“Very accommodating and friendly”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

We (myself, husband, 13yr daughter and 13yr friend) had been on holiday staying in Matamata (Hobbiton), Tauranga and around the Waikato region for a few days and really needed a quiet day to relax and recharge before setting off again.
I rang the Anglesea from our lunch stop at Cambridge to see if they had a room/rooms which might accommodate us at short notice. I spoke to a very friendly lady who advised they had a 2bdr apartment which would give us the space we required.

When we arrived later that afternoon the same lady was in reception and advised she had upgraded us to a 3bdr townhouse as she thought we really might like the extra space. She was so right, it was a thoughtful gesture which we appreciated very much. The kids were great to travel with but at some point we all need some time to ourselves! We were given complimentary drinks on arrival too, a cold beer, cold mini wine, and two juices for the girls.

The apartment was very big, main bedroom was large and had its own ensuite. The kitchen was well equipped, with a separate dining area. The unique wallpaper in the dining area was gorgeous, very clever.

The lounge was nice and big with a good sized balcony (overlooking the stadium). It was a warm evening so we had the doors open right till bedtime, we had absolutely no 'boyracer' noise. There was a large projector tv screen on the lounge wall so we all snuggled down on the couches and watched the Skytv movie which just happened to be The Hobbit! The girls squealed each time they saw somewhere they'd been standing just hours before.

The remaining two bedrooms were well furnished but the girls chose to share which is interesting as they'd been very ready for separate rooms just minutes before checking in. Just shows what a bit of space and relaxation can do.

We didn't use the breakfast menu but there was a good choice of items. It was also handy having the supermarket across the road for our dinner the previous night. We just bought bits and pieces and had a very pleasant platter dinner whilst watching the movie.

We left around 9am the next morning however I would have been happy to stay here longer. The bedrooms, bathrooms and living areas were all very well maintained and spotless.
Should we find ourselves in Hamilton again we would definitely choose to stay here first.

Location: close to the motorway 1, at walking distance from the stadium and Cole's grocery store, everything was clean but the building has an old feeling about it
Front desk: very kind and helping gentleman
Rooms : large, well equipped kitchenette, king beds available, good heater, oldish TV, everything clean
Free wi-fi, plenty of parking spaces
Would we go back? Considering the numerous other motels in Hamilton, we would try another one (and actually we did)

I'm not going to go into all the details, but staying here was a nightmare. Firstly they had no record of my booking, even though I had email confirmation.They sent me to 3 rooms before they found me a room, all of which had broken locks. The final room I was told "should" be vacant, but if someone was in there I should come back to reception!? What kind of pathetic operation is this? I then made the hotelier walk me to the room, as I didn't want to be the one disturbing a sleeping guest. This was at 9 pm after walking the length of the grounds, with luggage, several times. I was angry to say the least. I certainly won't be back.

Room Tip: Make sure your room has a working lock! But I wouldn't stay here...

Stay in a one bedroom unit. The room is spacious and well equipped with a good kitchen, spa bath, separate bedroom, and plenty of furniture. Staff is friendly, easy check in etc. Bed was firm but the pillows are slightly worn and not very supportive. Cleanliness is so so only the spa bath jets are showing some wear and tear with grime/stain in certain surfaces. Heat pump and fridge is in working condition but really need an upgrade/replacement soon. Overall the room is a bit tired because of the cleanliness and age of the fixtures - 3-stars like. Because of this the cost for this room is high considering I have stayed in a similar motel room at the same cost in Hamilton which has much better fixtures and cleanliness (see my other reviews).
The location is a big plus though. Very close to CBD with 2 supermarkets close by. The centre of town is only a 5 minute walk away which can be useful.
This motel offers packages such as golf deals and guys weekends which can be good if that suits your needs.
Overall a 3-star rating is suitable. Will return but likely only taking on a package or special.

Great motel, clean tidy and spacious and so close to the stadium and shopping precints and bars and restaurants. Friendly staff who go out of their way to make sure your stay is comfortable. Units are spacious and very clean. A heat pump insured the room was toasty warm and loved the spa bath. Love the packages available....golf packages, girls weekends etc. Would definitely stay here again and will be recommending.

Room Tip: The spa bath studio suites are great.

Excellent Motel - Neat & Tidy

We stayed here for two nights. We had room number 15 & 16. The rooms were exceptionally neat & tidy. Very Modern unlike most motels within New Zealand.

Both the rooms have a heat pump. The rooms were serviced & cleaned every day by the staff.

The motel is slightly pricey but one certainly gets a lot more value in return. As a fully equipped kitchen-ate, a modern Jacuzzi in room number 16.

Room Tip: Room number 16 has a Jacuzzi.....which looks brand new.
