We are a leisure marching team of older ladies and the stay at this motel was for 2 nights. We had more than adequate units, central to great food places and very easy access.The units were clean and tidy and quite private.

We booked this motel because of its location for an event that we needed to do training for. On arrival the owner was very helpful with telling us about activities etc in the area and then showing us to our room. The room was a fair size for the price and the facilities were at a very good standard. The...

Had a family unit was perfect for the four of us. Clean and had everything we needed in the room. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Would recommend to others and would stay again if ever in Napier. Close to town 5-10 min drive. Bed was a little hard for me and we fogged up the bathroom pretty bad but...

This place is located at little bit out of town which is no problem if you have a car as everything in Napier is a short drive away. The owners are very helpful. The room was on the smaller side for 3 adults and a dog, but it was clean and warm. The beds were very comfortable and the shower...

The hotel was located on a main road with associated traffic noise. I was there on a cycle tour and had to walk for 50 mins to pick up basic supplies. Nice estuary views and close to ocean . The room was on the top floor and I was allowed to carry my bike into the room with me. Tacky...

Only booked one night in Napier. Rang the motel the day prior to leaving Rotorua to see if we could get in early to freshen up a bit before going on a wine tour we had booked. We were being picked up at 12.30pm that day for the wine tour. The lady I spoke to (I think was Helen) was...

Great room and staff were very welcoming, wasn't very cold but lots of blankets and heater provided for when it does which was a plus. Few minutes walk from eat street which was great.

Thank you very much for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Yes we are away from the city centre, but Napier being a small city means we are only 5 km from the main street, but only a walk away to the bars and restaurants of the marina and we are one of the lucky ones...

Was adequate for what we needed (just a place to sleep) Room was a little on the small side for 2 adults + kid, but overall it was a place to sleep. Would probably go back there again if I needed a stopover place
