While some Kiwi’s may chuckle at ‘the Tron’ for its former reputation for car racing and bogans, Hamilton has since evolved into a sophisticated metropolis offering those moving out of busy Auckland with the ultimate dose of work-life balance.
Not only great for those residing permanently, but the city is also the perfect base for travellers keen on visiting some of the most amazing regional destinations. You’re just a hop, skip and a jump from the Waitomo Caves, Hobbiton (Matamata) and historic Cambridge—it is hard to believe you aren’t really in Middle Earth! Explore the Waikato River by bike or on foot, take flight in a hot air balloon or simply grab a cocktail at the Easy Tiger cocktail bar and chill.
Afterwards, however, you’ll need a place to rest your head. Helpfully, there’s something for all tastes, and budgets, with a few surprises thrown in for good measure. So pack your bags and head to one of these Hamilton hotels to explore the best of Central North Island.
