Excellent rooms and service. Very spacious bathrooms and the king bed was extremely comfortable. Good supply of tea, coffee etc. The owners run a very good establishment close to the hospital and to a number of attractions and restaurants,a lot within a 7-8 minute drive. Well recommended.

This is our motel of choice n Hamilton. It is always spotless, very well equipped and roomy. Handy to the city centre and even though on a main route it is quiet. The staff are always pleasant and it is like coming home.

owners were very polite and offered me a late checkout and had heat pump on to make sure room was warm on arrival. Room is spacious, very clean, extra little touches with shortbread cookies. plenty off street parking. Would stay here again next time in Hamilton.
