Reviewed yesterday NEW

I was very happy with the one bedroom accommodation, it had a separate living room and kitchenette. The kitchenette was stocked with a fridge, hot plates for cooking, microwave and cooking utensils. Although not very big, it was comfortable and clean. The staff are very friendly and the hosts Debbie and Lloyd were extremely nice and welcoming.

Really clean room. Great service from the friendly staff. Affordable and close to everything. Good for business trips. Would definitely stay again next time I have to be in Hamilton for business. Probably not ideal for families

First visited Arena Court two years ago, see my previous review. Knowing we were going back to Hamilton , this was our first choice. The owners Debbie and Lloyd seem to have got everything just right. The rooms are immaculate, breakfast really tasty and nothing is too much trouble for them, it was like returning to friends.

Stopped over for one night. Very well appointed with everything one would need. Lovely and clean. The spa bath after a long tiring day was awesome, with a separate shower. Didn't feel like going out for a meal, but Pak n Save a short walk. Host was very obliging and friendly.

We stayed at the Arena Court for just one night but were impressed by the well appointed, modern and clean room; top class products in the bathroom, excellent shower and a kitchenette with everything needed to cook a meal if you are so inclined. Free Wi-Fi and sky TV, comfy bed and the breakfast came as ordered (crispy bacon). Lloyd...

The room is clean and tidy. The location is closed to town. However, the room doesn't have sound-proof walls, so I could hear neighbours' talking very well. The shower wasn't powerful, so it was hard to wash my hairs.

Thank you for taking the time and effort to review Arena Court Motor Lodge. With double glazing we have been told by most how quiet the units are, so there must have been some very noisy neighbour during your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back the next time that you are in Hamilton.

Highly recommend staying here, rooms are spacious with a large shower and seperate spa, service was fantastic. Great location, walking distance to dinner and grocery shops if required. If I'm ever back this way will definitely be staying here.

Easy check in and nice clean room. Would stay here again, but as we had a roadside room and found it a little noisy would ask for a room further back from road. Handy location to town. Good bed and shower

We won't forget this stay. The owner is very friendly and helpfully and our room was great. The motel is near to the main shopping street. You can find all the attractions and good restaurants in a booklet in your room. We will come back for sure!
