Wow what can I say, this Fountain City Motel Inn was in my eyes just as great as it was advertised, the service at the front desk was so warm and inviting just what you want after a long day of traveling this amazing country that is NZ

I have stayed at this motel on a few occasions. This motel has a nice street frontage and also boarders a park so half the rooms (the rooms on the north side) have a nice "park view". The rooms are getting a bit old and tired and have a distinctive "cleaning product" smell. The beds are big but old. The...

Stayed for one night. Room was exceptionally clean, large and comfortable. Shower had wonderful pressure. Will definitely stay again. Lady at reception was super brilliant, funny, friendly and helpful. Plenty of parking and close drive to the city.

We stayed in Room #1. The bed was very soft and uncomfortable. Facilities were basic and the room felt cramped with limited space. However, the room was clean and the staff friendly. Only a short drive to the centre of town.

Room was comfortable with large bed but definitely dated decor especially the bathroom. Shower was very low so hard to wash hair. Room was a good size with plenty of car parks. Reception hours were limited.

A bit dated but really good value for money. Spacious room with open plan lounge and kitchen. Really comfortably appointed. Great bed. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. Our new "lets stay in Hamilton" place. Huge TV With lots of sky channels.... can also be watched from bed. Book ahead as I noticed the no vacancy sign was out early pm.

The hotel was very clean and the staff were great. The room had cooking facilities and a door outside which backed onto a park. We had a large mini bus and parked it right outside the back of the unit. The inside parking was for cars less than 2 meters high. The bed was very large and comfortable Nice quiet...

Had room 11, for one night, NYE. This room is upstairs, back of reception, over car park, view of next door roof. It was clean. But smoking was permitted, with an ashtray on the balcony. Not enough parking, which is disappointing for a 'motor inn', so getting out of the angle park meant dodging parallel parks outside the ground floor...
