Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The room smelled musty from not being aired out. The bathroom was dirty and had hair/pubic hair on the walls, to which i requested a new bedroom. Dont get me started on the parking. The parking spaces are stupid and hard to get in and out of your vehicle especially if you have a huge vehicle as well as you have to pay $20 per car park.No where on the website does it state you habe to pay for parking. I would not recommend staying at this hotel. The photos on the website is not what the rooms actually looked like.

The grand old, former Grand Hotel. Perfectly adequate accommodation. Warm, spacious room, excellent shower, comfortable bed, reliable Wifi and friendly staff. Central location handy to bars, restaurants and the rover walk. Would stay again if I ever ended up back in Hamilton.

Hotel was nice and handy to town and well priced. Rooms were huge. It was dated and the day were there the lift was broken so had to take the stairs lucky we were only on the second floor. Car parking was very tight to get into.

Charming building
We were there to allow us to attend at the hospital early and then then next day. The VR Hamilton is conveniently located to the hospital and we loved the architecture of the old building and the big, high rooms. It was generally immaculate throughout. Parking is a bit tight but was nevertheless available.
