Activities/Attractions: Welcome to Waikato, home to beautiful landscapes, rich fertile countryside, fascinating underground vistas and Middle Earth. Blessed with a temperate climate, the Waikato region boasts spectacular gardens, wonderful golf courses, world renowned thoroughbred studs and a peaceful, rural setting framing even its largest city. Easily accessible by main roads through stunning scenery, make sure Waikato is on your ‘must see’ list of New Zealand destinations.

Hamilton’s beautiful riverside location has been the focus of this city since its beginnings. Growing up around the banks of New Zealand’s longest river, the centre has become a farming, educational and entertainment hub.

The Waikato University, Hamilton Gardens, the city center's attractions, agricultural research and Hamilton’s peaceful location in the heart of the Waikato, make it a popular destination for visitors and those seeking a quality lifestyle. Its proximity to the river provides many leisure activities:

  • Walks along the river
  • Lush gardens
  • Cruises
  • Jet boat rides and more

"The Barclay complex has beautiful grounds, a lovely heated swimming pool and a large family spa, handy to restaurants, bars, cinemas and the new Casino. All rooms have Sky TV and data connections. I enjoyed a pleasant 20 minute walk to my office in the CBD each morning and home again in the evening. A taxi fare of $5 was more than reasonable if the weather was inclement. The owners, Margaret and Neil, were helpful and friendly and made life as easy as possible for me during my stay. On cooler evenings I would arrive home from the office and find my lights and my heater on creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere."

"I can't thank you enough for taking such good care of Dad while he was staying with you. You really went above and beyond the call of duty. It is wonderful to know that people who are willing to help others still exist in this world. Bless you."

"No issue was too big or too small for Neil or Margaret to resolve. Not only have they made the stay enjoyable they have been instrumental in ensuring that we were comfortable, happy and pleased to be back each week. In my work I have stayed at many a Motel/Hotel and unfortunately I have not had many opportunities to stay at many Motels that meet the standard of the Barclay Motel. I truly believe that the success of the Motel is entirely due to effort and detail to work and ethic that Neil and Margaret apply. If only there were more motels of this calibre."

“Neil & Margaret are friendly and accommodating hosts, going the extra mile to add to already excellent facilities. I personally would highly recommend Barclays Motel for all business travelers/holidaying families.”

"Just a note to say thank you very much for the wonderful stay at your motel! We had a great time, and look forward to our next time in Hamilton - we'll definitely be back if you will have it, we LOVED the unit we stayed it!! Was such a great/perfect place for our family, the pool, playground, everything was great, and thanks for all the extra towels etc!"
