Basic accommodation but clean and tidy and Host's really nice. We had one of their $7 meals each and they were great. Plenty of food and nicely served, delivered to room as well. Lots of off street parking also.

The host where wonderful. We had to take my son to Waikato Hospital and for convenience to the hospital it was great. The rooms are a bit tied they need updating but the outer of the build has that old colonial charm. The beds where very very comfortable. We got the last room and it was huge for the three...

I presume the room was not always used as it was not very clean. e.g. dirty grease on top of microwave and kitchen window sill. Dust, crumbs etc between cushions on sofa.

We stopped here on the way to Taupo, the room was clean and well equipped. There had been some sort of mix up so we were most surprised to find 3 separate bathrooms and a separate curtained area containing an additional 5 beds! Easily the largest room I have ever seen. Easy to find and park, reception staff were friendly.

We stayed in one of their rooms with cooking facilities. Very welcoming hosts, the two bedroom unit was spacious enough for us with all the necessary facilities to cook your own meals. Well located with access to shops and supermarkets. Has also a shuttle service to the Hospital. Very clean, with toiletries provided and hair dryer. +++++

We stayed for one night while attending a friends birthday. We found the room large, clean, well located, and well priced. It was fairly busy but quiet. The deco was a little out of date but clearly well maintained. A great budget option in Hamilton.

I stayed in the studio apartment which is a great size with a king size bed and two singles, separate (small but ok) kitchen and bathroom. Free wi-fi was great & the price was good. Clean & tidy but unit was right on the road front and I was kept awake by traffic. so if I was to stay again...

This is the second time we have stayed at this property. We have found the owners to very pleasant, polite and helpful. The continental breakfast is good, no complaints there, in fact no complaints what so ever in regards to all else. Great value for money asked.
