The perfect stay

This hotel is perfectly situated in the "right"part of town. Very close to the most amazing restaurants. The staff are amazing, however the new Manager needs to enhance his people skills. He is unfriendly not the least bit engaging and had one of the girls on Reception in tears. This is my 5th stay at this hotel and I love it but I don't like seeing staff being treated so badly. All the girls on Reception couldn't be more accommodating and friendly, they look like sisters and they are delightful. He should count his blessings.

Right next door, you can't go past the River Cafe for breakfast or for lunch, it's fabulous. Down the road a little is the Bank, what a find, great ambiance and the food is spectacular and only NZ$20 a main, bargain.

Central city

The hotel is very central with great cafe just outside the front entrance. However, I would not recommend staying on a Saturday night despite the provision of ear plugs by the hotel. The nightclub across the road boomed into our room until the early hours of Sunday morning! Not the restful night I hoped for.

Wifi doesn't work in rooms

The rooms are huge but cold. The heater didn't work well. The wife in the room - although complimentary - did not work. I needed to submit proposals and had to work from the reception area to get a good signal. Breakfast a joke. The worst hotel breakfast ever. The owner/manager was very rude to his staff but pleasant enough to guests. Wouldn't stay there again.

a few days away for a change of scenery

This is the second time we have stayed here and we love its elegance and old world charm. The staff are always really pleasant and helpful and the rates are reasonable. Its location is very central and close to the casino, picture theatre and an excellent restaurant, The Three Legged frog. However the television channels need to be addressed. It is unusual to have limited basic Sky channels in a facility such as this. Also the shower rose was not up to scratch and it was like bathing under a waterfall. I believe this establishment is under new ownership and no doubt these improvements will be righted in due course. It was still an enjoyable stay and booking on line was successful. My husband also likes the under cover parking and after hours lockup. We will stay again on our next visit to Hamilton.
