Recent guest reviews

I stayed for one night this past week, under somewhat stressful circumstances (my husband was in hospital in Hamilton). However, the stress of finding a place to stay in an over-booked Hamilton was completely dissipated by the warm and welcoming Front Desk staff at the Ventura Inn. Although I had just checked in and the room includes breakfast during the stay, I was urged to have some breakfast before heading to the hosptial. Also, because logistics would always be a problem, they were wonderfully accommodating about providing parking for as long as I needed it. Booking the Community Shuttle between the motel and the hospital was also no trouble. As to the rooms, a bit basic, but I only needed a place to sleep for a night. Just one disappointment - no Sky TV. A good night's sleep, lovely staff. What more could you want under the circumstances?

Stayed here the night of 1/8/17. Was welcomed by friendly reception. Room was clean and had all I needed. Had a complimentary breakfast in the cost of the room which was all you could eat continental breakfast including muffins and pastries. Would happily stay again

Even though we live in Hamilton. We stay here one a month to get away from our home and kids, and is a lovely time away with my wife for a rest. We have tried many places but nothing matches the great hospitality and friendliness of the ventura inn Hamilton. I can not thank all the staff enough for a lovely stay one again. and i personally would like to thank Philip for the great hospitality and service he has gave. I would recommend this place to anyone. Always clean, always professional.

I have stayed in this Motel a lot over the past two years while my husband has been in and out of Waikato Hospital. I have always found it clean and tidy and very comfortable with great staff. This time I found at lot of refurbishment has been done and the place is looking great. New drapes, bedspreads, decor etc. and once again I enjoyed my three nights stay. Included is a lovely breakfast and wi fi. I will definitely stay again if in the area.

I chose this place to stay while in Hamilton because they offer free unlimited WiFi. And the WiFi was pretty good. Not blazing fast but was able to stream a TV show while being connected to my work VPN server and doing some remote server maintenance. The work desk adequate for a couple of laptops. The bed was big and comfortable. The bath and shower good and hot. The complementary breakfast was OK. Nothing fancy but filling and a variety of choice. I'd stay here again.

Ventura inn and suites was a pleasant surprise. It is a modern motel with suites at the edge of downtown hamilton, easy to get to with free parking, some of it covered. Over several floors, with a lift, there are a number of common areas and a big breakfast area. Breakfast was simple continental but had fruit, yogurt, toast, rolls, juice and some cereal, I think. Unfortunately, the hot drinks come out of a machine. The room and bed was super comfy and the bathroom had a tub and shower. There was a small fridge and tea making gear. Wifi worked great. The staff was great and it was a short walk to restaurants, pubs and businesses on Victoria Street. The FMG Stadium was about 1 1/2 miles away so also walkable. I look forward to staying here again.

As always this has been our chosen stop over anytime we journey thru hamilton. When there has been rooms available.Wonderful for a short stop. The breaky is a very nice touch and ideal for young families .

We stayed overnight on a business trip. It was dark when we arrived, and we pulled the curtains without realising that the windows were open. Bad call! The room was cold (mid-winter) and the traffic noise, which started about 5am, woke us early. To make matters worse, the water was only tepid when we had a shower. A plumber was on-site when we went to breakfast. On the plus side, the staff were nice and the room amenities were as expected for this style of accommodation. The bed was comfortable and the room was clean. Thee was a heat pump in the room. The included breakfast was OK - crumpets were an uncommon but very nice touch!

A continental breakfast is included in their tariff so it's too bad if you don't want breakfast- that would be my only criticism. The staff were friendly, room spacious and clean, good parking with many being under cover. Perfect for those attending the Clarence St Theatre. Charge was reasonable and bed comfy so I marked 5 for great value.

Stayed one night for Chiefs Lions game. Didn't spend much time in room. Basic but clean facility. Comfy bed. Service was very friendly and helpful. Complimentary breakfast was great. Liked the complimentary biscuit with my cup of tea. Would stay again.
