Budget on the lake is like my second home in Hamilton. This is my third stay here and since my first one, I did not have to look elsewhere as this is exactly what I needed whilst completing my lab classes at the Hamilton hospital. The unit is self contained with all the essentials that I needed. It is clean, welcoming and conveniently located. Set right opposite the lake was also a bonus as I could enjoy a walk/run in the afternoon around this beautiful treasure after a long day. A big Thank you to Tam who has always been very accommodating and ensured that all my needs are met. Highly recommend!

This hotel is located about 10-15 minutes walk to town. I had a twin share room, which was great cause it had 2 rooms in it. Which will be great for family. I'll be coming back to stay when I'm in Hamilton.
