“Great motel, comfortable and excellent service!”
Reviewed 31 August 2014 via mobile

Stayed here for a sports trip and booked three family spa units. The owners were fantastic to deal with and nothing was an issue. The rooms were large, modern, clean and beds were very comfortable. Easy to find and close to supermarkets, food outlets and only a short drive to town.

Stayed August 2014, travelled with friends

The room was large and comfortable. There was a kitchen for those who wanted to cook and better yet, laundry facilities for families in need of clean clothes. We were placed near the back away from the road traffic. The owner was very helpful in making sure we were happy with our stay.

We found the owner who checked us in very pleasant helpful and proud of her business. She created a very positive environment .The room was more than adequate for the type and she was considerate in placing us far from the road noise.

This is a really nice hotel and the couple the run the hotel are fantastic. The rooms are very clean and the beds very very comfortable. The location is easily accessible to travel around the area and you are only about an hour from the Glow Worm caves.

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
