Mel and Nigel Orr, managers of BK’s Hamilton Motel, bring an impressive hospitality industry background to one of Hamilton’s newest motels.

BK’s Hamilton Motel is the closest motel to Braemar Hospital, is just around the corner from Waikato Hospital and is the closest accommodation to Braemar Hospital, putting it in a very convenient location for patients or visitors to either of Hamilton’s hospitals.

Mel and Nigel have 30 years of experience in hospitality throughout New Zealand. 

“I am passionate about this industry,” says Mel, who has a Bachelor’s Degree in Hospitality Management and a Master’s Degree in Metaphysics.

“I started working at Quality Hotel as a Receptionist when I was 18 years old.  I have worked my way up through the industry, including being Duty Manager at Chateau on the Park in Christchurch and Front Office Manager at Portland Hotel and West Plaza Hotel in Wellington.  I was the General Manager of a 4.5-Star Hotel in Wellington for several years.

“I moved from the Hotel industry to the Motel industry eight years ago and have been relief minding and managing three-star to five-star motels ever since. 

Mel and Nigel have built themselves an enviable reputation in the hotel and motel business, with their unique knowledge of the industry and an eye for concepts and ideas, allowing them to develop and improve every business they are involved with.

Mel and Nigel say they are enjoying their time at BK’s Hamilton Motel, which they have been managing since November 2016.  BK’s Hamilton Motel is one of 13 BK’s Motor Lodges throughout New Zealand, the largest privately-owned motel chain in the North Island.

“We like the wide range of guests who visit us here and their stories about what brings them to Hamilton,” says Mel.  “This motel is new and fresh and it’s nice to have a great product to provide them with.

“Our goal is to make BK’s Hamilton Motel the top five-star motel to stay at in Hamilton.”
