Positive Reviews

A convenient location in Hamilton CBD

Travellers generally appreciate the hotel's central location on lively Victoria Street, noting that its many restaurants, bars, and shops are within a short walk. It is also very convenient to the SkyCity Casino, Waikato Museum, and walking trails by the Waikato River.

Friendly, helpful staff

On balance, the security staff and reception personnel are described as friendly, polite, and sincere in their efforts to provide good service.

Negative Reviews

A long trek from the car park to reception

While drivers appreciate the ample covered parking on site, many describe the walk from the lot to the reception desk as a "maze" of hallways. Guest often feel uneasy or confused the first time through due to the length of the walk and the minimal signage along the way.

An older property in need of some updates

Guests comment that the hotel is located within a heritage property, and the rooms vary widely in terms of their size. While some are described as spacious, others are uncomfortably cramped or poorly laid out. Guests also generally agree that the rooms are a bit tired and dated, with some visible wear and tear throughout.

Can get a little noisy at night

Light sleepers in rooms facing the main street with all the restaurants and bars sometimes find the noise to be an issue. Travellers have also been disturbed by fellow guests returning to the hotel after a night out. Rooms in the back of the hotel are more often described as quiet.
