Our stay was just an overnight stop en route from Adelaide to Melbourne to dine with an old friend in Hamilton. It is a nice, clean and friendly place to stay and is within walking distance of the town centre, where there is a path. It was also very hot when we stayed, the overnight temperature outside didn't fall below...

Thanks for the review. The new airconditioners are lovely and quiet, great for those really warm nights. Hamilton is a lovely town, we are surrounded by nice walks including along the river and around the lake across the road. We look forward to seeing you again on your next trip.

From the outside the motel looks a bit ho-hum but the two bedroom room we had was very nice. They had supposedly sold out of standard rooms. There was a kitchen which had a stove top and microwave. The plates etc needed a wash before we could use them. The potato masher was dirty as well. The fey pan was...

In town for a family funeral. Our first conversation earlier in the week with the management was a bit odd, but subsequent communication was fine. Room was scrupulously clean. Had everything we needed. Good location.

Warmly greeted by the owner and a great room assigned. I heard more noise from the birds at dusk than the traffic on the main road running along the front. The recommendation for dinner was spot on, loved the local Thai. While I had the disabled room so the bathroom was huge to allow for wheel chair access the rest...

Hi Fiona, Thanks for the great review. We don't always tell people this, but we do make quite an effort to make sure we know the local eateries and places of interest so we can match the right place to each guest, and we are a bit spoilt with Thai food in Hamilton with two great choices. So glad you...
