Janet M. Couples - 20/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We love staying at your hotel and will keep doing so. Staff excellent. However not having real milk in our room is awful, and next time will bring our own milk. The stuff provided taints the tea. Also the late evening room service meal was awful. Heavy, heaps of unnecessary chips, tasteless, soggy couldn't finish either the toasted sandwich or burger. Need something much lighter and refined at that time of night. As a 4-5 star hotel expect better. However we will be back.

Kia ora Janet, Thank you so much for taking the time to share your recent experience with us. We are currently reviewing our menu to align it as we head into summer so will share this with our Executive Chef to factor into his planning. Have an awesome day and long weekend, Nga mihi Toni Baker Food and Beverage Manager

Melody Solo - 20/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

I stayed in the executive suite (second time I've stayed there now). I really like the view of the river in those rooms. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. The rooms were exceptionally clean and tidy. The location is so convenient - the mall, retail stores and restaurants are only a few minutes walk away. Would recommend to anyone looking at staying in a quality hotel in Hamilton.

Keri P. Couples - 19/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Overall really g except for the Sunday evening meal. In one word Unacceptable. Grilled fish salad and chips. Half plate chips and half salad about three ingredients and two small fillets no doubt from the freezer. I shouldHave returned it however I was having an operation the next day and I just thought oh what the heck so either your Sunday shift or whoever made it needs a good talking to or you’re mean you needs to change because it was really disappointing the rest of the time we were there the meals were great

Kia ora Keri, Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to share your recent experience with us. Please let me start by extending my sincerest apologies for your dinner on Sunday. I can assure you that our plating of this meal is usually really awesome so i have copied in our Executive Chef who will look into this with the team. I am really glad to hear that the rest of your dining experiences were much better. Thank you so much, Toni Baker Food and Beverage Manager

Best located hotel in Hamilton CBD. All aspects are well presented and staff are only too keen to accommodate. Rooms and overall amenities cater to all requirements. The renovation and addition of the new entrance way adds to the customer experience on arrival. Nice touch of hand written card personalizes the aspect when entering my room. Bar and restaurant staff were very welcoming. Well done.

Great location, terrible parking issue which was the reason why we chose this hotel

Customer review rating 4.3/5

M Couples - 19/10/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

We came to Hamilton to get some parts for our car. I specifically chose this hotel for secure parking and assumed that as we were in a premium room we would not have any issues. On check-in I was informed that there was not any parking available. So I asked if we could park at the front of the hotel and was informed that that was only for 15 minutes. When we left to go for dinner I noticed that at the front of the hotel four of the same cars in the same spots an hour later. We returned to the hotel at approximately 1230am. When I notice the cars were all parking at the front of the hotel, so I asked the staff member at reception why they were allowed to park there and he said they were early check outs. We came down for breakfast at 930am. Those cars were still there. I am furious that I chose your hotel for the parking and instead had to pay Skycity next door to securely park our car. Also found it disappointing that there was no minibar is such a high standard hotel.
