“Personal care beyond all expectations”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2011

Recently I spent 15 nights with Neil and Margaret while my husband was in Waikato Hospital awaiting and during heart surgery. Each night the lights and heater were switched on so it was nice and warm when I arrived back alone to the motel. I couldn't speak highly enough of the staff and owner. Thank you so much. Will be back later when next surgery happens

I stayed for 37 nights at the motel and was made welcome from the very start. The manager very kindly gave us a swimming card to allow us access to the local swimming pool and gym and no charge to ourselves. The cleaning staff were faultless. they knew their jobs well and we always had clean towels each day and clean sheets every three days. Each of the women cleaners had a real good personality and sense of humour, which is pleasing to see these days The manager Neil gave my partner a loan of his mountain bike, helmet and reflective jacket to get around the town and tracks, that was really appreciated. I would recommend this establishment to anyone.

Room Tip: ask the management what you want and you receive

Thanks for your comments folks. Looking after our guests is more pleasure than work for us. We simply put ourselves in your situation and go from there. The bike had a good workout, cant say it has had the same since.

I need to use at least 50 words, but 7 would be enough. Friendly, exelent service, like a second home. I spent about 250 nights in hotels and motels every year, i have seen more luxurious places than this, but that was also at least twice the rate. The motel is very clean, outside and inside The staff as well as the owners are very helpfull. We stayed here for one and a half month, nothing to complain about at all. Downtown Hamilton with resturants, shops, casino and nigthlife is only a 15 min. walk. When i get to Hamilton next time, Barclay is my choise.

We stayed in this Motel with the Japanese Rowing Team for the 2010 World Rowing Championships. We had a fantastic time! We enjoyed the nice and spacey units to relax and prepare for our competition. The staffs were very friendly and helpful with whatever we needed. I can truly recommend The Barclay Motel for people travelling to Hamilton.

We arrived early evening at Hamilton after a long drive from the Bay of Islands and found the Barclay Motel quite quickly. The gentleman who greeted us on reception was nice and friendly. The room accommodated 4 people, 1 separate bedroom and 2 singles in the lounge area which was adequate for our needs, very comfortable and clean. This accommodation was definitely value for money.

Barclays is a small motel, one of a line of motels of varying size along Ulster Road, the road north to Auckland. It is not in the centre, but there are several unexciting restaurants and a Pac n Save supermarket a very short drive away, while the centre is about 5 mins drive. There is wi-fi broadband in the rooms (not cheap at $2 for 15 mins) and a guest laundry. Rooms are pretty basic but everything works. Our unit at $115 had king-size bed, armchair and chair, full kitchen with microwave, kettle, toaster, coffee plunger/cafetiere, and small table and chairs. During our stay, the motel was completely overrun by children who used the courtyard outside our window as a tennis court or football pitch until late evening, so it was not very quiet.

Thanks for this Review. Yes another sports team in that evening however in the the ensuing period we have changed the way we book sports teams in here for this very reason. 50Mb of Wi Fi is now free to every customer. Thanks for bringing these points to our attention.
