I paid for this motel online. When i checked in i was told I either need to give my credit card number in case of damages or $100 cash, refundable upon checkout and following a room inspection. I gave my card number. I realised the next day that they took $100 out of my account and didn't say a word. I rang them to demand they refund the amount and the lady said it should be in my account by Monday. Today being Thursday. Not good enough. I've stayed there another time and they took the amount of the room out of my account after expedia had already done so. I realised this days later and went and saw them. So they do this intentionally and often. I'm concerned as to the amount of people who may not check that they double dipped. Also hot water goes cold when bath is half full. And I've had 2 rooms where window latches are smashed off. Unlockable. And a lady's sex aid (toy) under the bed.

The Grosvenor met all of my expectations - the rooms were clean and comfortable for a weekend getaway. The staff were lovely and attentive. The bathrooms appeared recently renovated and the shower pressure was amazing. We will definitely be coming back for our next weekend in Hamilton. The only concern we had was the young children running around the car park, though this was out of the motel’s control

I would not advise anyone to stay there. The man with Triavgo had promise all these nice things about it but it was a rubbish dump! Iwould not put an animal in between those sheets. How can anyone be allowed to offer the public a service such as that at this motel! Come on Trivago serve us with honesty....... Have you not heard of the quote "CAVEAT EMPTOR"....... LET THE BUYER BE AWARE!
