being a family of five (3 teens) finding rooms to accommodate us is challenging. We loved our stay and were very comfortable in these clean new rooms. was a perfect, quiet location just close enough to Hamilton attractions. we did have a car.

Room Tip: we were in room 12, i believe and this was roomy and perfect for five of us.

Dear Mcgben5.
Thank you for your fabulous review. We are so glad that we were able to provide you with the facilities that fit your requirements. Accommodation for families are hard to find, as most of the city motels cater for a large corporate market. We have a selection of units that will satisfy most criteria and having the heated pool on site, makes for great entertainment for the kids! Harry

Once we were inside our room it was ok, however the location is a bit dismal. I thought we were going to have a view of a park, but actually our room faced the rugby stadium. Even with no game on and minimalist stadium lights on, our room was very light with all drapes closed.
In reading other reviews, it appears that this was not suited to our needs and was glad we were there only for one night.

Room Tip: Stay away from rooms facing stadium

We recently stayed one night in Hamilton on our way to points further north and had an excellent experience. Our room was very nice - well appointed, very comfortable and spotless. All of our needs were anticipated and catered to, and we really couldn't ask for anything more. It is hard to imagine a nicer place or better value for money, and we would highly recommend the Park View.

Our family stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment recently and we were very impressed with the cleanliness and layout of our apartment. The swimming pool was excellent. This is a perfect location for anyone staying in Hamilton who is up there watching rugby as the grounds are just across the road. Would definetly stay there again.

Room Tip: Some rooms of views of the rugby grounds.

We had a one bedroom suite. It was very spacious and comfortable for our family with two teenagers. The bathroom was spacious with a spa. The room was clean. The kitchen was well equipped and there was free WIFI, free laundry, and a swimming pool. The front desk/reception area was very small with very little area information. The staff did their job adequately. The one catch about this property is that it is immediately across the street from a big rugby stadium so the experience at the property probably varies on dates when there is a game at the stadium.

I stayed for 2 nights in Hamilton for business last month.This was my 3rd time at the Park View Motor Lodge. I keep forgetting how friendly and helpful the staff always are, and how clean and organised every room has been. The heated pool is a favourite as well. I really couldn't see how it could be improved - PVML really sets my benchmark for everything I expect in a home away from home, for anywhere in the world. Why can't every hotel be run this way ? Thanks again guys. I'll be back again.

Room Tip: Haven't had a bad room yet.

I was stranded without a vehicle and happened to need a last minute booking in Hamilton a few weeks ago, and found the fairly new Park View Motor Lodge on google. The studio unit I stayed in was excellent overall, and had everything I needed. Very clean and comfortable it was also well appointed with good linen and even a robe. It wasn't the cheapest on offer but it was well worth paying a tiny bit extra for this standard of accommodation. I would be happy to stay there again anytime.
