There seems to be quite a few hotels in downtown
Hamilton, and it is like only 1.5km to the uni.. not that Iâd walk it.
We stay at the Ventura Hotel in Hamilton. Its
very nice and includes breakfast. From memory its
under $100 per night or thereabouts. They're
tolerant of us (or we've trained them) so running
power cables out to the van doesn't completely
faze them. Neither does stashing our gear under
the stairs. Maybe it was the time we were there
with the Police and took a new car apart....
However, they do still talk about the time we
did a link from London to a pub in Wellington for
an All Blacks game doing mid span EQ in the hotel
room. There was only a couple of roadcases of
gear in the room, honest. But it was very cool -
we got to watch Sky rugby with an alternate commentary.
Iâm a little too old and entitled these days
to stay in Uni accommodation ;-)
Nah - its good fun and brings back memories.
However, last time I did forget the golden rule
about always carrying your room key, especially
when going to the loo in the middle of the night.
