Reviewed 22 October 2013

Lovely one night stay at the Best Western Hygate for a family of 2 adults and 2 children. Room was spotless, beds were comfortable, the bath and shower fantastic.

The receptionist was very helpful, friendly and polite. Will definately recommend and stay again!

Standard Motor lodge, rooms tidy and clean. Owner lady was nice and helpful. Not to much street noise from the busy road, handy eateries nearby that deliver and charge back to your room, shower had good pressure

We arrived on a Tuesday night after a very long trip from Minnesota. We had a large room with an extra bedroom which worked well for us (couple traveling with young adult son). The room was very clean and quiet, even though the road by the hotel is fairly busy. The staff were very courteous and helpful.

We arrived on Saturday, having booked online for a four night stay.
The Staff were helpful and pleasant to deal with.
Of all the seven Motels we stayed at during our stay in New Zealand, this was the newest with the most modern décor.
We stayed in their family accommodation which included a separate bedroom with two single beds, the main bedroom is also the main room of the motel including kitchen, television (with Sky) dining table and two lounge chairs.The bathroom was large with a spa bath.
Having read others comments stating a lack of soul, or character these may perhaps be a result of the design of the room which has a more Hotel feel.
The décor is neutral and may not suit those looking for a quirky holiday experience, however if you are looking for a nice room, and a good night sleep, then this is exactly what you will find here, we enjoyed our four nights here and this accommodation served it's purpose for our family.
Essentially we spend our days out exploring and return to the motel for the evening.

Great place to stay, friendly owners, clean well appointed rooms.
What more could you ask for? The rooms are modern & offer everything you need for a short or longer stay. Air con, all the sky channels, leather couch, kitchen with cooking facilities, big bathrooms with large shower...
Nothing bad to say, I stay there every time I am in Hamilton for work & have also stayed when passing through on Holiday. I highly recommend Hygate.

Hi Stowaways
thanks for the fabulous review , we do try and cater to the requirement for the business traveller like yourself as well as the families. The SKY decoders in each room with 50+ channels have certainly been a big hit and air-conditioning makes the humid Waikato nights more pleasant. Look forward to seeing you again on your return to Hamilton
