We booked through Booking.com. Good price. When we got their lady upgraded us which was nice to a room with spa bath. A bit limited on Wifi. but not a big deal. parking was a bit tight.
Will stay here again.

Thank you for your positive comments. Sorry that parking was not all you wished for, but the Motel was originally designed to get maximum accommodation space on an city lot. Thanks again for taking the time to give me your feed back.

A most enjoyable 2 night stay. The owner was very helpful and pleasant with the units in top condition. The unit was very clean and of a good size.
Simply, we have no hesitation in recommending this motel and would certainly stay again.

Thank you for our stay. It was very clear to us that you have taken on previous comments and made changes accordingly. All of our furniture was very clean and comfortable. Thank you for taking the time to ring ahead to the zoo for us to make sure our visit there was possible. Top marks for the cleanliness of your rooms and your personable service was appreciated.

We came late at night, were exhausted from long driving hours and bad motel experience in Wellington (because of the Seven). The BK's Settlers Motor Lodge owners were very friendly and offered us an excellent and generous deal. We had a calm and comfortable night. Settings and close-by restaurants very good.

Comfortable but only two comfortable chairs in the sitting area and they could have done with a clean. We were a family group of four. It would gave been nice to have sofa to sit at before going out for a meal.

Hi. Thank you for your feedback. I have taken on board your suggestions. Every unit has had the furniture steam cleaned and all the chairs are really nice and clean. I have bought some two seater settees for some units and would appreciate feedback as to what our customers think of them.

The lodge was very cozy and clean. The owner's here are incredibly nice. I was backpacking through and she gave me a ride to the store and the bus station the next day. If I am ever in Hamilton again, I would stay there. Thanks!

We picked this motel as the exterior looked welcoming and well-kept. The lady on reception was helpful but once inside the motel, we found it only very average and would not recommend it. The bathroom was clean, but the place was let down by shabby and stained seating in a shade of dated pink, and which should be consigned to the rubbish heap. There was only one armchair, which was strange, as there was a double bed so the room was clearly for two people, but in any case, it was dirty so I did not fancy putting anything on it or using it.

Room Tip: The upstairs room we were shown had a proper shower unit, whilst the downstairs unit we saw only had...

Hi. Thanks for the feedback. The furniture has all been professionally steam cleaned and is back to the standard I wish to maintain. I have bought some two seater settees for the larger units and have had positive comments about them. I would love to have the chance to show you the changes should you be in Hamilton again.
