We stayed at Barclay two times, our very first days in New Zealand. First my husband, Alex, was there in August for a week. He came from Thailand and after several months in a warm country had to go to all the struggle of the transition into cold, including getting used to his new closed shoes after all-time slippers))) Neil, the owner, sorted him wonderfully out, letting his own soft shoes as an amergency and giving plenty of useful information. At that time, Alex picked up the best unit, 22, for our future stay in November.
In November 2013 we came as a family with 2 young children and stayed at Barclay for more than one months while looking for our own house to rent. The unit 22 was just as comfortable and Neil and Margaret and all the staff as nice and welcoming, as we would be hosted by our best friends. The kitchen is handy and nicely equipped, plenty of space, big outside area, playground. The staff took really good care of us, brought some toys and books for kids, helped with advises about house searching etc. Neil took our 4 y.o. boy to help him with putting down the flags. And I just adored Margaret's roses !!
The location is very comfortable, we miss it sometimes ) We didn't have any noise from the Ulster street at our unit. The riverside walk is just 10 minutes walking away, a supermarket and the free shuttle bus to the city center a bit further, but everything was very manageable with 2 young kids. Really, we couldn't find a better place for our first weeks in Hamilton.
