We stayed for one night on our "road trip". The motel is in a convenient location and easy to find. Staff are friendly & welcoming. We had a nice clean, spacious room with a very comfortable bed. There is an outdoor swimming pool.

The four of us had just driven down from Karapiro in the rain. The Palm City had everything we needed, just as advertised. We were able to relax, dine in the house restaurant and enjoy a couple of wines without having to do any more driving. It met our needs completely, and the staff were friendly which is always a...

Stayed for two nights in very comfortable rooms, only thing missing was an air conditioner. Restaurant was great, try the steak or schnitzel. The schnitzel was huge and well cooked. The owners are very friendly and accomodating. Would definitely stay there again. Oh and a nice pool too.

We had a one-bedroom unit. The double bed in the bedroom, and the single bed in the lounge were comfortable. The bedcoverings were fine, but the sheets were a bit thin.

This is a great place to stay, close to the centre of Napier. The rooms are nice, it's quiet even at the road end of the block, and the swimming pool is excellent. The rooms can get a bit hot - new air conditioning / heat pumps would be good to have installed at some point. We always stay here...

A quality motel in a very convenient central location close to Service stations ,shops and city center. Owners very helpful. We used PCMI for the Art Deco Festival and it suited us very well. I'd be keen to book it again next year when we return to the festival again.

Units were tidy and clean. The pool, spa, playground and restaurant meant there were great facilities for the whole family to enjoy. Location was very central making it quick and easy to get to most of the main tourist attractions in Napier. Overall we were very happy with our choice of accommodation.

Only stayed the one night but was lovely and clean. Spacious room. Did find the pillow a little firm but that's personal preference. Also it was hard to fill up the jug as it didn't fit under the tap.

Excellent motel, great location, v helpful staff. 20 mins easy walk into town, but if you preferred a longer walk, the there is a 1.5hr walk around the port to the centre of town- v peaceful and quiet walk.
