Myself and my partner stayed at Fairley Motor Lodge from 22nd August 2011 to 2nd October 2011. My partner was in New Zealand for work, whilst I took the opportunity to take some leave.
Fairley Motor Lodge is located in Westshore, Napier, between the beach and the estuary. It is in a quiet location and is a 5 minute drive from Napier airport and a short walk to the local restaurants, shops and bars at Ahurriri.
We stayed in a one bedroom apartment which was located at the far end of Fairley Motor Lodge and overlooked the sea – which was perfect! We found the accommodation to be clean, comfortable and very well appointed. It had a large lounge/kitchen with dining table, LCD TV, sofa and desk area, a spacious bathroom with spa bath and shower, and a large double bedroom with LCD TV, a clock radio and ipod dock. The bed was extremely comfortable with good quality linen and the towels provided were clean, plentiful and very fluffy!
The kitchen was also very well equipped with a two ring hob, microwave and fridge and enough utensils to cater for our needs; however, if we required any more specific items, we only had to ask!
Hugh and Jane, the owners were lovely people and could be relied upon for interesting conversation, information about the local area and a lend of their bicycles! Their support staff were also incredibly helpful, considerate and accommodating. Their cleaning skills were outstanding (can we borrow them please!!!!)
We would definitely recommend the Fairley Motor Lodge for business and leisure, for short or a longer stay, for single people, couples or families. This was our first time in New Zealand and we can definitely say that our experience was made all the better by the relaxed and welcoming atmosphere created by Hugh, Jane and the staff, a home from home!
Thank you, Hugh, Jane and all at Fairley Motor Lodge for making our stay such a pleasurable and relaxing experience.
