An excellent place to stay when visiting Hastings or Napier. Clean, roomy, quiet rooms. Nice small touches like a carton of real milk (not UHT) and the newspaper in the morning, and good old fashioned hospitality. We'll stay again.

Group of us went to Hastings for a dancing competition and stayed at the Valdez. A great welcome and a great place to stay. Owners were so friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The units are clean and very well appointed and well back from the road so quiet. We will be back again next year for sure. Thanks...

Accommodation is easily located along one of the main roads through Hastings. The motel rooms lie well back from the road and are a good size and excellently equipped - it is a great place to stay. The owner was exceptionally friendly and helpful, providing us good tips on what to see locally.

Stayed here for son attending the cricket camps. Very spacious two level room. Got a bit hot in the upper bedroom however. Loved that the rooms were away from the road so noise not a problem. Decor a bit outdated but I know that is on the list for the new owners as we talked about it. Owners are really...

Thank you to the owners for providing a home away from home. My kids, partner and I loved the apartment and homely feel we got from staying here, we'll definitely be back. Nice and close to everything we needed to be near 👌🏼
