Positive Reviews

Solid breakfast spread

Travellers rate this hotel's buffet breakfast as much better than the average fare one typically encounters while travelling. The variety of options, as well as the quality of the dishes, regularly make it into positive reviews of the property.

Central location

Guests appreciate the location of this hotel. They have little trouble getting to much of the city on foot or after a short drive. The proximity to the green areas around the river make this a solid option for those who want to walk, run, or bike while staying in Hamilton.

Friendly and professional staff

Visitors rate the staff at this hotel very highly. They feel welcome at the hotel and are pleased with the professionalism and grace with which special requests and enquiries are handled. Many note that the management responds well to feedback and makes constant improvements to the building.

Negative Reviews

Car parking can be an issue

Reviewers often leave negative comments about their parking experience at this hotel. Parking is not complimentary, as many expect it to be, and the valet system is reportedly not well organised.

Can be noisy

Guests say that this hotel can be a bit noisy. The street below the hotel sees a good deal of traffic, and the windows are not double glazed, it seems.
