Modern, clean, quiet and comfortable. It is an absolute pleasure to stay here. I frequently commute to Hamilton for work and have been in most the rooms the Best Western have and they are all really good. They have everything you would need for a relaxing and comfortable stay, whether it is for work or a holiday.

The mattresses are comfortable and they have a selection of pillow sizes and firmness. Their kitchens are modern and well facilitated with cooking utensils which gave me the flexibility to either cook a full meal or to eat out. Good selection of complimentary teas. Bathrooms are modern with a lovely large shower and hair dryers. There is a full length mirror in the closet! The easy to work air conditioning/ heating system really meant I always had a comfortable sleep in a room at my preferred temperature.

The highest praise for Carolyn and Dave, the owners who are absolutely wonderful. A perfect home away from home.

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.
