Good hotel, good quality, well maintained

Customer review rating 3.5/5

Anthony Business - 21/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

The stay itself was nice, the room was always kept clean and tidy. There were a few things that could be improved, I stayed last week and there was a full compliment of amenities available in the bathroom and water was left in the room, however this time there were none. When I called the front desk I was advised that this wasn’t something they generally provided for guests. Also I had advised multiple times that my company would handle payment and allowed the copying of my credit card based on that as I know that is standard process, however my card was charged and I was told there was no note of any conversation or details. Other than those two issues I enjoyed my stay.

Nice place to stay

Great place to stay because of the location. Beds are really comfy. Most of the staff are friendly and helpful. I haven’t had great experiences with the room service food though but the breakfast is great!

I will share your comments with our team. I am sorry to hear your experience did not meet your expectations with the room service food, and we hope to be given the opportunity to redeem ourselves on your next stay with us.

Called the Hotel directly late inn the day - had excellent dialogue with Daisy on reception whom I met when I checked in - also a very easy process. Very tired on arrival so did not have much time to enjoy the facilities but pleased about the quality of the room I had - I look forward to staying again soon. I just hope that my stay will account toward some loyalty rewards on this trip as I would like to always stay here when next visiting Hamilton

Garlicky Cut fruits at breakfast. Yak!!

Customer review rating 2.0/5

Apai P. Business - 20/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

Been at the hotel a number of time. Location is right. Comfortable and nice friendly staff members. Generally have not had cut fresh fruits at breakfast but tried cut cantaloupe this time. It was very garlicky taste and not pleasant. I think fruit cutting board was been used to prepare garlics.

We are constantly reviewing all aspects of the guest experience to ensure we are meeting the expectations of our guests and your feedback is very much appreciated. My apologies for the breakfast experience you encountered and I have passed on your feedback to the F&B team leadership so that they can investigate how this could have occurred and to avoid future issues such as you encountered. Once again, thank you for the feedback and we hope to be of service again in the near future. Regards Philip Hilton General Manager

Good Modern Hotel with Great Central Location

Customer review rating 3.0/5

Nicol Families - 19/01/2022 Confirmed reviews ALL

We booked a two bed room - it was clean and lovely modern decor with nice modern tile bathrooms and lovely views over the river and Hamilton. The hotel front staff were very helpful and friendly. Parking was easy, but it is first in first served basis. The hotel is right on the river walkway and right in the centre of town so super convenient. I had lovely drinks on the big sunny hotel balcony (at a previous visit) - and service was good then and the snack food we ate was fine. I booked and paid for breakfast, but the buffet was well below par - it was probably the worst hotel breakfast I have had in years. The fruit was dried out and tired, the selection of food was very very average - there was no individuality with the food to showcase any of the local foods from Hamilton or chef talent from within the hotel. There is no love here and this hotel deserves to have a better breakfast experience.

Dear Nicole, Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. We very much appreciate the comments you made and I can assure you these will be of great assistance as we continually look to improve all areas of our operation. Once again, thank you for the feedback and we hope to be of service again in the near future. Regards Philip Hilton General Manager

Nice clean rooms. Good location. Fresh food. But the thing that always makes it an enjoyable stay is the friendly and helpful staff. A bit sad that this stay was cut short by the move to Level 3 COVID.
