      The kitchen area was very useful and well equipped for the style of room.

      . It is not expensive to stay there, has cooking facilities and was quite clean.

      It is an older establishment that perhaps needs some updating, furniture is not positioned in relation to the limited lighting in the lounge/dining area. Beds requested to be set up as doubles, were not supplied as such they reduced the charge of the accommodation in lieu of that

    • Group of friends

      Loved the strength of the shower and the comfortable warm bed.

      No salt and pepper in the cupboards and not a sharp knife. The knife was blunt.

    • Family with children

      The Motor Inn was very clean and comfortable. Good location to the shops and cafes, and the staff were very friendly. I would stay again.

      We did have to ask for a couple of extension cords for the electric beds, but once we did ask we got them straight away, and the cleaner only left 2 towels instead of 4 when servicing the room the from the first night.

      Our unit was very comy and clean, the staff went out of there way to insure our happiness....The kids loved the heated pool and it was a great fill in before dinner and bed...thanks for having us!!!

    • Family with children

      The owners/staff were really cheerful and welcoming. They accommodated all my questions and requests with a huge smile. I would go back just for that. However the unit was also very reasonably priced and, though a bit tired in some areas, it was clean and very comfortable. My teenage sons enjoyed the indoor pool!

    • Older travelers

      The service was really good, people were lovely, location perfect for the Waikato Stadium, TV coverage excellent. Would definately stay at the Aquarius Motor Inn next trip to Hamilton.

    • Older travelers
      7.8

      I was very happy with the friendly and pleasant why the staff looked after me when I booked in. Helpful with suggesting eating places etc.

      I really think the bed in which we slept in has had its day. Very uncomfortable. Needs looking at.

    • Family with children
      7.4

      proximity to city and supermarkets and basic kitchen facilities

      we thought the pool was advertised as heated but it wasn't very warm and that maybe because it may not be heated during summer

    • Family with children
      7.8

      Very comfy beds

      Bathroom/kitchen was clean but needs to be upgraded

    • Family with children
      7.0

      Staff very friendly and welcoming.

      Kitchen light didn't work and jug didn't work.
