Nice clean rooms with everything you need. Friendly, helpful proprietors who were very accommodating when we made some changes to our booking. By far the least expensive place we have managed to book over Art Deco weekend!

Also a handy location for cycling into town, with a very direct, flat route down Kennedy Road, including a wide bike path all the way.

Stayed: February 2014, travelled as a couple

Booked through Jason's in July 2013. On arrival new owners had no record of booking as a result of inefficiency of previous owner. After initial panic by us as no other accommodation available in Napier or Hastings because of the Art Deco weekend, the new owners swiftly sorted us out with a room for the four of us. How, I don't know, but we are so greatful to them for their kindness, humour and endeavours. What it has taught us, if you've booked through an agency well in advance, be sure to check booking is confirmed directly with chosen accommodation.
Though the motel is a little tired it was clean and beds comfortable. Towels changed daily, towels available for swimming and spa.
The town centre is short 10 minute drive away, New World supermarket 5 mins, so all in all a convenient motel.
Having chatted to the new owners, I am confident that they'll turn the place around and, considering they only took over 2 months ago, they are doing a great job and wish them every success. We certainly enjoyed our stay.

We stayed here for 2 nights and enjoyed our stay. There's nothing great about this place, you get exactly what you are paying for but the hosts are lovely. The pool was a god send, the spa a little too chlorinated. There was a few cockroaches around and the decor was very old fashioned but if you can get over that you will be fine.

It's your average Kiwi motor inn: tired, very 1970s without hot/cold mixers in the sink, etc, but roomy, neat and tidy. The environs are quiet, being in a residential zone outside Napier's CBD. There's ample parking, a small swimming pool and the best thing is free wifi without any data limits, which was reasonably fast. Good option for a basic stay without frills. You have to drive into town for everything as there are no shops around. Basic but comfortable, quiet and unpretentious.

Maybe don't select this inn if you're looking to impress a lady friend but if it's practicality you're looking for and you have transport then it's probably got what you're looking for. It was comfortable, with the usual tacky decorations that only a motor inn can provide. That said, there is free unlimited wifi which is enough to distract me from just about any amount of bad floral wallpaper - gets my vote anytime!

The pricing was reasonable and the unit we had included 2 singles and a queen bed, (with the queen in a separate room and a TV in each area) and a well equipped kitchenette. The owner was friendly enough and was available when needed, there is also a (very) small pool on site if you feel so inclined and breakfast is available for a little extra.

Room Tip: Beware of the spa (which is available free to guests), if it's anything like the night we were t...
