I stayed for a couple of nights at the end of March whilst on business in Hamilton. The motel is basic but clean. Kitchen was adequately equipped. Staff were helpful. It had a good internet connection, essential for business travel. No traffic noise in my room.

Cobwebs,mould,dust,peeling paint, was what greeted us upon our arrival. We were in Unit 2 - two bedrooms, kitchen, lounge. It was not cheap enough to warrant living in substandard conditions. One weeknight for 5 people : $190 Avoid it.

We stayed at the Classic Motel over the weekend while going to Equidays. I phoned the reception to advise we would not arrive until well after reception closed. They did not have a problem with this and advised they would have the unit ready for us and the unit number. We arrived around 11pm and the key was on the...

We stayed in one of the 2 bedroom units for several nights. The unit was very clean and tidy with comfortable beds, a full kitchen and lounge with all the extras you could want for an extended stay including extra pillows, blankets, iron etc. The motel offers a free washing machine for guests use, washing lines and dryers. They also...

Although sheets and towels were clean the carpet and ceilings needed a good clean. Complimentary coffee, drinking chocolate,tea and milk were supplied Complimentary soaps (refillable containers) were empty. Spa was nice but required 4 hours prior notice before use.

We all had a good nights sleep and were able to get late checkout which was great, made our time really relaxed. we will be staying here in...

Well it certainly was a different stay than we have had in Hamilton and by no means the best. The first unit (3) we were put into, had no working heatpump and there were cobwebs in just about every corner in the unit. We were subsequently moved to unit 2 which thankfully had some heating but was just as dirty...
