The host with the most. Very helpful and cheerful. The rooms were tired and in need of renovations. Quite a few light bulbs were out. For a family unit the kitchen needed a larger pot. Cold on arrival but once the heater was sorted we were ok.

Very nice guy, great room. Have stayed twice and will definitely again if in Hamilton. I am now filling in words - why do you have write at least 200 characters? Discourages me from writing good short review, I am not someone with nothing better to do (unlike some that simply look for fault so they can write about it)..

My family recently stayed in the 3 bedroom unit. It felt damp and cold when we checked in thankfully the heaters soon fixed that. My biggest problem was that the unit wasn't clean enough. Windows and sils were dirty and mouldy, the net curtains were mouldy. The kitchen floor was sticky ie hadn't been washed for a while. Inside cupboards...

Finding a place for a sports team to stay can be difficult. Ian made the team welcome and was obliging and helpful. The rooms were clean and tidy and represented value for money. Ian was friendly and made the team and management welcome. The rooms are a generous size for meetings and dining as a group. Would definitely take the...

A colleague and I went on a business trip to Hamilton and stayed two nights at Sails Motor Inn. We found the host very pleasant and really helped with all our venues we had to go to all over Hamilton. Rooms were roomy and clean. Nice spa bath after along day. Had great cooked breakfast. Most enjoyable stay.

My son, partner and myself spent a night at the motel. There was a swimming pool for us to swim in, which on that particular day it had been 30 degrees. Our room was very clean and tidy, with all the extras including a full sized oven for cooking purposes. The motel was a reasonable rate, with management being very...

It is the second time we have stayed in Hamilton, and the first time at this motel. We booked this motel as it was near to the stadium and it had a 3 bedroom...

When my partner and I checked into the Motel around 5.00pm, we were greeted by a rather unhappy man, in barefeet, scruffy shorts and a dirty tee shirt. He was not particularly welcoming, but we ignored this, as my partner and I were not going this man spoil our holiday. When we made our way down to our room, we...
