Recent guest reviews

I moved to this hotel from one in the same city. It saved my life. It was so clean. The front desk staff were very friendly and accommodating. I stayed in a deluxe suite and had a lovely view of trees from my window. I slept so well. You can order food also that gets delivered to the hotel. I will definitely be back.

I booked the Ventura Inn back in early January for a mid-March stay, but for some reason when I checked in (admittedly late in the day) I was given a handicap room on the first floor as the hotel was "sold out." I didn't think much of it at the time, but room #1 was awful for us. Handicap room issues aside, it was noisy. I'm not sure if it was the elevator shaft or what, but something made an intermittent low bassy sound all night. Even with earplugs, it was very disrupting. We couldn't get the temperature right. The plugs next to the bed were underneath the nightstand and we had to crawl around on the floor in the dark to plug our phones in. We tried to watch Netflix but the TV app kept crashing so we had a frustrating evening in this room overall. All that said, the beds were pretty comfortable compared to others on our trip. And the included breakfast with a coffee machine that makes lattes was a nice touch. Great location and free parking make me say go ahead and stay here, just don't get room #1!

Nice clean rooms, staff very courteous. Quiet rooms with very little light and noise pollution. I would highly recommend this as a great place to stay for any amount of time. Walking distance to supermarket.

We had a spacious comfortable unit with a superb KS bed and bonus bath. Breakfast was included lots of covered parking on the premises and close to city facilities. Immaculate and well equipped for or a great stay highly recommended

We arrived early in the day after an overnight flight to New Zealand. The staff put extra energy into getting a room ready for us right away, even though it wasn't even 11:00 am yet. The room is nicely furnished, clean and comfortable. There is a decent sized fridge and hot pot / coffee & tea. The breakfast buffet is one of the better ones we've had in a while - good variety, high-quality foods and breads. The location is great for hitting some nice shopping and eating areas without having to get into your car. We'll definitely be back.

We stayed at Ventura Inn on the way to Auckland. We had problems at the last Hamilton hotel on the main street due to street noise and loud people down the hall. We chose Ventura Inn as it was still in a central location but a bit back from the centre of the city but still easy walking distance to bars and resturants. There is also a supermarket across the road. Check in was quick and simple and parking was on site. Our room was a good size with a large opening window. There was a queen bed and a single. The room was very clean as was the bathroom with extra towels provided and quality toiletries. The only downside with the room was that the bed was too close to window and only one side had a bedside table. Breakfast was included in the room rate. It was a good continental with the usual toast, spreads, canned and fresh fruit, cereals and yougurt etc. There was a small pool and day spa which we didnt use. All staff members we encountered friendly and helpful. I would not hesitate to stay again.

We have stayed in Ventura hamilton and Rotorua many times from when it was first built, Have always reccomended it to people had not been for a while but have to say was not the stay we were used to. Asked when we booked to have a room on side that was not the courthouse side(noisy) Where given a room over where the cars drive through on court house side. asked to change and we got one on other side. Then when we came home in afternoon room was not done and they said the sign on door said not to, we never put any sign on the door but felt the reception thought we did and werent really that interested no apology had to run down to get stuff. And the coffee was aweful! could not drink it. So for us not a good stay this trip

This accommodation is within walking distance of the CBD, restaurants etc which we enjoy. The rooms have been refurbished and are very comfortable and modern, light breakfast is included. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely recommend and will stay here again.

Had to travel to Hamilton for a family emergency visit. relative admitted to Waikato Hospital in the HDU. Family booked us into the Ventura and we found the facilities excellent. Close to Hospital for visiting.

Return here again after a few stays before. The suite is still my pick looks like they have refurbished a few things in the rooms like curtains etc. The most obvious difference to me is that they have taken out sky tv in the room but have instead replaced it with Apple TV which I'm happy with. Wifi was acting a bit funny throughout my stay also. Overall I'm happy and will return again!
