We stayed at the Spanish Lady for 2 nights, in a one bedroom unit as a family of 4, one a baby. Upon arrival the manager was helpful and kind, and showed us our unit. There were ants- quite a few on the windowsills and in the kitchenette, though spray was provided and it did a good job of killing...

We stayed here 3 nights and it was a great stay! Friendly people, the owner looked after us really well, and we'd recommend this place to family and friends on their road trips! Access to pool and spa - which we made good use of! ;) Close to the town centre and beaches, and easy access to SH2 to Wellington.

We booked to stay in this motel for one night, and we requested a unit that was not close to the road since I am a light sleeper, upon arrival we noticed the unit was very close to the road, and since the motel was booked out we couldn't move. The insulation between the units is non-existent we could hear...

Hi there, Thank you for your feedback. We regret the inconvenience caused by your next door neighbors. Being a old style motel, very little can be done to improve sound proofing. However, if we were notified of the noise, we could have made sure the noise level were kept low. Thank you for your feedback.

Booked 2 bedroom unit for 4 women, one who slept in the lounge. Air con unit leaked and soaked lounge bed pillow, sheets. Was attended to promptly. Unit itself average, needs updating, poky for four adults staying 4 nights. Stayed 3 nights (due to family circumstances). Would not recommend for more than one night.

Hi there, Thank you for your feedback. We regret the inconvenience. We had these brand new airconditioning units installed and we believed based on the advertisement that these would be good units, apparently not. Hope you will enjoy your next stay better. Thanks for your feedback.

Excellent value for money if you are just needing a place to stay overnight. Close to the wineries and Napier CBD. The staff are friendly. The room was very clean and the bed was nice and firm. Highly recommended!

It did the trick. A nice spot on a main road maybe 10 minute drive from the main city centre of Napier. The beds were comfortable and the bedding was warm. It even had an electric blanket. We had our own kitchen in our room too which was good as we did most of our dinners at home. It was...
