Good average motel for our stop over, but the lake is not in view. In fact it's over he highway and worth the effort to wander over there. Clean room, very pleasant staff (proprietors) and up to the usual Best Western standards. Room was quite large and offered facilities for the disabled in need thereof.

Thanks for the Review. You're right, the lake which is just across the road is beautiful and well worth a look while you are in Hamilton. We are still in search of the sometimes spotted platypus, but there is plenty of other wildlife around the lake even the occasional koala and wallaby. Hope to see you again.

Thanks for the great review. It's really rewarding for us when our guests notice the changes we are making. We have upgraded many of the TV's, replaced the Antenna and had all the wiring re done to improve picture quality. We've also upgraded the Wifi to Liveport who are great. We are really glad you enjoyed these improvements and look...

Lyn & John are friendly and helpful, rooms are clean and spacious, breakfast was very nice and delivered on time. It's close to the town center and a great quiet town to visit for the weekend. Would recommend this motel.

A last minute booking for me and I was welcomed beautifully by Lyn. My room was clean, warm, well appointed and very spacious. It was especially nice to soak in a bath after a long day. We would definitely stay again when visiting the area.

This place was great, the staff were very accommodating, the rooms were very spacious and very clean and the beds were very comfy. Even though it is close to a main road, i think, it was very quite. Would defiantly stay again.

The entire experience from booking, throughout my stay and right through to check out was phenomenal. The owners went out of their way to make sure I wanted for nothing. Being away from home for a full work week is trying, but knowing that I was going back to such a wonderful place made it easier. The bed was amazingly...

Room was good. Because I was in Hamilton on Training they put me in one of the back rooms so it was nice and quite. The Owners gave me a map and showed me how to get to the places I needed to go. The heaters kept up with the 1 degree outside tempreture. Good parking, mine was under cover.

Nice old fashioned motel on the Main Street, clean rooms, friendly staff greet you upon check in. Our room was larger than normal as we had the suite with wheelchair/disabled facilities. Bonus for those who need this kind of thing. Our room was noisy all night, sounded like there was a constant washing machine spinning clothes next door although the...

Hi Anna, We regularly get great feedback about how quiet our rooms are particularly where the all abilities room is. Most people love the comfort of the beds but you can't please everyone. We hope to see you again.
